Hi people - I bought this tent for Ibiza vacation in summer — we were 2 — the height and shape kept things pretty cool and the air flow was good. I used it later in autumn and we camped with my dog in the vestibule.

Functionally it was fine and with the vestibule I didn't get dog claws in the ground sheet.

The tent was easy to pitch but I did practice at home b4 the journey.

I still have the tent — it's never seen water or rain so not a help there.

At 4.8kg it's not so light so I may look for a replacement as I'd like to cycle or hike.

That said I'll keep the Venus if i don't get a good price. I think i paid about chf700.

Price Paid: chf700
