not really, but I did have a giggle at this - dare I ask how much the Aldi tent (didn't) cost?

You get what you pay for, JennyCas. $70. It was 6 feet tall and had everything you needed, except for the engineering required to withstand 100 km/hr wind gusts.

Whereas Macpacs are designed to stand up in a blizzard. We won't need snow-proofness where we're camping tomorrow, but the overnight minimum forecast is about 2 degrees. Definitely taking the little Olympus and not the Taj Ma-tent!

Enjoy. I only bought the Aldi tent because l thought it would be comfortable for car camping. This was its first outing - with a massive fail. Whereas the MacPac Nautilus has seen around 20 years and several hundred outings, and has never failed.

A MacPac from the days when MacPac made their tents themselves.
