Just because we have not given a tent the MFF Recommended For Quality badge does not mean it is a bad quality tent — we are confident all our offerings are good. Our priority in our first year of trading is to provide you with a range of tents that meet the MFF Recommended For Quality standards and have been tested, we will likely prioritise testing tents from better-known brands with more positive reviews first as they have a higher chance of passing. So please always look closely at the MFF Tents Specs Table as every tent is a good standard —we only select tents with good waterproof ratings, for example.
Any tents we test we will review and post on our blog as well as attach the post to the product description.
