Kampa herald this as 'the ultimate AirFrame tent' and it certainly contains masses of excellent features and top quality materials. The Kampa Filey 6 sleeps 6 people in a single 3+3 inner with removable divider curtain.
Stepping out from the bedroom area is the main living space. This large 280x380cm area features a fully sewn-in groundsheet and on the right hand side a fully enclosed porch - or en suite extension as Kampa calls it - that can be used as a storage or toilet area and can be closed off with its own door.
Next to this porch area is one of two Airflow windows that can be zipped out to provide maximum ventilation. One the opposite side of the tent is a side door with a rain canopy overhead and a mesh double door. And next to the side door is the second of the Airflow windows.
Moving from the main living area - through the dividing doorway - you step into the front canopy/porch area - a completely enclosed space that features a large roll-to-the-side front door and massive panoramic windows. This area is ideal for 'wet gear' storage, bikes, a kitchen area or just an area to sit and watch the World go by. The detachable bathtub groundsheet in this area can be removed and washed for convenience.
Kampa's new inflatable tents means there's no more traditional steel poles but instead an inflatable 'AirFrame' that is pre-attached to the awning and so there is now awkward or time-consuming assembly. The 'AirPoles' that create the frame are also inter-connected so that you can pump the entire frame up using just one valve.
Conversely if something happens to damage one of the 'AirPoles' it can be isolated from neighbouring poles using the in-built isolation valve therefore ensuring continued use of the tent while a repair or replacement is arranged.
You simply use a double-action hand pump (supplied) to inflate the AirFrame and it will be fully inflated in 60 seconds. There's also no need to worry about over inflating these AirPoles as they are high pressure and the pump will simply cease to work when they are full. You will be amazed how rigid the AirFrame is when fully inflated.
The Kampa Filey 6 AirFrame Tent Package comes complete with tent, a 100% polyethylene footprint ground that goes under your sewn-in groundsheet plus a soft polyester tent carpet that fits perfectly into your living area and provides an extra layer of insulation and warmth under foot.
