    Retreat Compass Hub is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Huge space - great height - but be very careful! I brought this about a week ago and put it up yesterday as a trial run before camping at Xmas. It did take four adults to get it up but was a fantastic space once we finally made it work. However be very careful about securing it down! We had all the pegs used - (about 12 I think) but we didn't have the guide ropes tied down and unfortunately it ended up in the neighbours tree. It has been a bit windy today but nothing too out of the ordinary for December and certainly not what I would have expected. It has therefore been a rather expensive mistake.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The star of our camping trip! We took this camping when the weather was a bit iffy this Summer and it made the trip (for everyone we were with as well). We had a day of thunder & lightening even, where everyone hung out in the hub playing board games, and it was maybe the best day of the holiday! We used it for shade in the day, card-games at night, rain-cover for meals etc. I would like to plug our tent into it so that we have a lounge (this is why we bought it) but to be honest I think everyone else we go camping with wont let us!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The pictures don't do it justice Easy enough to put up, but definitely required the two people that the instructions suggest, and one of those needs to be reasonably tall as they need to be able to hold the poles and fly overhead at a height of about 2.3m. The pictures do not do this justice. There's much more space inside than they appear to show. My 6' tall other half was able to stand without ducking in all but the very corners. Plenty of space to get a large table and chairs in with room to spare. Also not seen in the images, the door panels can operate in two modes: fully solid, or solid/mesh combo. Each door has a zipper on it that converts the door from fully solid to the solid/mesh combo pictured. The only downside to this thing is the weight. It's just shy of 30kg making it a behemoth to carry. The poles make up the bulk of the weight. It might be nice if there was a second pole bag included so that I had the option to split the poles into two sections for transport. The stuff sack itself is very slippery and doesn't have handles in the right places for two people, which makes a two person carry more difficult than it needs to be.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bought it to replace our old gazebo and what a good decision that was. Looked at all the other makes in our campground and these are the best by far. They have room in all four corners for gear with doors open and they have 8 anchor points for the main poles making them really stable.tie them down properly and you will have no problems

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing since sliced bread I've been loosing sleep over deciding on out new tent all I knew is I had to have the hub It's amazing !!!!!!! Deff tie it down as nz summer winds can be a tad crazy but we have it attached to the 280 ( as we decided to make our sleeping area smaller ) and it makes a awesome lounge on the tent , we have now booked 2 more camping trips through out the year Massive thank you to Sarah at Lower Hutt amazing service could not have asked for anything more

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful with some positives We bought this for our camping trip to the Great Barrier as a space to use for evenings or in adverse weather and to connect to our 280. It was an absolutely horror to put up - the poles are very heavy and you need to make sure that they are curved the right way. We needed 2 pretty tall guys to get it up. Once it's up, it's a really cool big living area and we enjoyed using it in the evenings. However, even with a bit of wind (and I'm not talking cyclones), the tent's design is rubbish as the doors are velcroed at the bottom in 3 places. A bit of wind quickly gets in which lets the rain in and creating some nice flood plains. The Velcro pieces then ripped off which made it even worse. Putting it down was even worse. The poles were hard to separate and several connectors broke in the process.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but very hard to put up We have just been away and purchased the hub to attach to our 360 retreat. Our tent is super easy to put up colour coded poles etc so we were very disappointed and frustrated at the difficulty of putting our hub up. The poles are tricky to ensure they are facing the correct way and it’s near impossible to get the roof attached without it falling to pieces, we have snapped one of the poles inside chain also. Once up is was fantastic and loved the attachment to our tent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is quite big but we are really happy with it. stands up to the wind and the floor and doors are a great bonus
