    Currently dithering on purchasing one. I’ll may, or may not, ‘pull the trigger’ on shopping cart after a beer tonight :biggrin:

    However, if anyone can save me from myself and offer up a used jobbie, then I’d give it some thought. In fact if someone can tell me that they’re dreadful and not worth it... even better :eek:

    Many thanks me ole fruits.

    @Taz38 is right. I hate mine so much that I've used nothing else since I got it 4 years ago. It's never stayed up for the duration of a single night. Occupants report being troubled by recurring nightmares featuring prison camps and sardine tins. I don't even know how it is for condensation because it leaks like a sieve even when it's dry outside. It breeds biting insects spontaneously. It elicits nothing but mirth from anyone unfortunate enough to see it. Your dog would hate the interior space. Donald Trump uses one -so does Jeremy Corbyn (delete according to your personal prejudice/alignment). Honestly, say no while you still have your sanity intact.

    I wonder if Jeremy would lend it to Boris for a while... not a political statement, just an observation of BJ’s domestic affairs. :D

    It takes up far too much room in your pack too.

    I've heard that if you sleep at a certain angle during the wrong phase of the moon, the hex shape will open a portal to hell. Is it worth taking the risk?

    Does it involve four or more married ladies practicing every week unspeakable pagan rites while frantically dancing naked for Beelzebub?

    Aren't these the ones that catch fire in your pack, I read in the daily mail they give you cancer too. My mate got one from BPL and went out for an overnighter, nobody ever saw him again. Apparently the Koreans can track your movements if you own one too.

    I’m not convinced... although it may hide the fried chorizo splatterings... :redface:

    Which inner have you got?

    A T zip Aliexpress jobbo that is half the weight of the Luxe one... tho the Luxe one is a better fit and has more inner floor space.
