- I have scored so highly because I had an Akto for the previous 11years and have been very pleased with it. It finally gave up the ghost a couple of weeks ago and I had no hesitation in replacing it with the latest model. The ease of pitching is one of its best features and its stability in high winds is another. Its initial cost seems high but if it lasts for as long as my first Akto it is very good value for money. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for a durable but lightweight tent.
- Not sure about a couple of new additions. The zip cover seems superfluous - I never experienced any leaks previously. The pull tags on the tent pegs also seem un -necessary. The guy ropes are also slightly thicker. These are only small niggles but all add to the overall weight and packing size.
