A review of the Regatta Vanern Tent Carpet which is aimed at those with the Regatta Vanern tents but this could be an ideal tent or awning carpet for anyone with a 310 x 210cm floor plan or smaller.
Now we have had quite a few regatta products in the past in terms of camping gear, coats and jackets and have always been impressed. Regatta as a brand holds quite some status so we were quite interested to see whether this regatta vanern camping carpet would live up to the name of affordable prices but quality camping and outdoor gear.
On first impressions it comes in a little draw string carry bag showing how easy it is to pop in your car or even bag and how light a carpet it is, its about 1400g so nothing too big and is helped that it comes in the drawstring bag so you can pack it away easily.
Once rolled out the carpet looks well crafted and designed. The carpet is made from a polyester that feels soft to sit on. The underside of the carpet has a waterproof base layer making it possible to use inside your tent or directly on to the ground outside as a picnic blanket. This particular carpet has a more luxurious feel than the others we have tried, it is a little more money but I would term this carpet, a fully fledged tent / awning carpet with only one thing missing… a way to fix the carpet down. There are no eyelets and ties to allow you to fix your carpet in place therefore you will need to use something heavy to keep it stable. This is a must if you are moving in and out of the tent alot and have children, its bound to be moved or put out of place with the days activities.
If you are using this inside your tent, you will be turning it into more a cosy living room space, the carpet has the ability to provide excellent insulation for a tent carpet and will help to keep you warm if you like to sit down on the floor inside your tent, which means it will feel great under foot throughout the day as well.
Pros & Cons
- Soft material on the top
- Waterproof base layer
- Next day delivery
- Good insulation from the ground
- No fixing ability provided
- A little more pricey
Conclusion & where to buy
The Regatta Vanern Tent Carpet is luxurious, waterproof and well made. If you are looking to add a comfortable base layer to walk on in your awning or to line your tent as long as you have a few items that are able to be used to hold it in place, this carpet really ticks all the boxes.
