PRODUCT REVIEW — INFLATABLE TENTS
THE DOMETIC HAYMAN 4 AIR INFLATABLE TENT
I ’ m not going to lie and say I knew what I was signing myself up for . I was setting off to camp for the night with a family of four , myself , and nothing to pitch the tent with but a pump and a few pegs .
But to my surprise the inflatable tent was an absolute breeze ( pun a little bit intended ). Like most people , we didn ’ t mess around and read the instructions . We just tore it out of the bag and went by feel !
Anchoring the four corners down , whipping out the pump , securing it to a two-way valve and beginning to pump was all it took . It only took about a minute on each of the three durable air poles for them to reach 7-8psi , leaving us with only the guy ropes to tension and tighten .
CHECKING OUT THE INTERIOR
I was shocked and so was everyone else at camp , at just how large and simple the blow-up tent actually was . We unzipped the main door of the tent eagerly , keen to see what type of home awaited us . And unsurprisingly , just like the outside , the inside was huge .
The Hayman 4 AIR felt a lot bigger than the 4-person tents I ’ m used to due to the size of the canopy that you first step into when entering the tent . This massive front room would be a great area to hide away from the weather and play cards with friends in , store your gear or even as a place for your four-legged friend to sleep .
