Keyno Tents

Hi All, Has anyone ever heard of Keyno Tents? Seen them on Ebay but cant find anything on Google about them AT ALL - which seems a little weird to me.

Decided to take a look myself. Very strange, like you said - Google turns up nothing at all apart from ebay pages from around the world. The blurb seems to imply that it's sold in shops ie it has a recommended retail price. But you can only buy it from ebay. Very, very strange [?][?][?]

Re: Keyno Tents

Hi to everyone. Came across these Keyno tents on ebay and like others tried to find out more about them, to no avail. Have been back through the last 1000 feedbacks with this seller (diamond_zone)and by far most of the negative feedback is against other products they sell like the swords. Otherwise their feedback is 98.5%, which is pretty good on 12,000+ sales. I don't know whether to risk it, but I've seen feedback scores a lot worse than this from sellers still trading on Ebay. Apart from a few, most of which complain about delivery time, the feedback on these tents seems quite good. At least one thing is certain........... You'll never loose the current 5 berth one in a crowd, as it is bright yellow! Can anyone tell me if these figures are good? • outer tent made of 185T polyester PU 1000mm • inner tent made of 170T breathable polyester • polyethlyne floor • frame made of 8.5mm fibreglass poles • taped seams I guess the spec. is the bottom line, isn't it? Anyway, further searches and auctions show that there are more well known makes for a few pounds more, so what's the point in going for an unknown? Thanks for your input. best regards Phil

Re: Keyno Tents

Hey Phil, Nice to know someone else is having the same questions as me. To be honest I avoided it in the end like the plague. it just seems to odd that this manufacturer is untraceable - what recourse woudl you have if the thing died while you're away. Who would you shout at?. At least with one of the big manufacturers they will be there to replace/repair a broken tent shoudl you need it. Decided to stick with what I know and will probably go for an Outwell or a Vango again. Good luck with whatever you decide to do though. Graham

Re: Keyno Tents

It does state in the specs 1000mm.... This number refer's to how waterproof it is..

1000 = ''shower resistant'' (read - about as effective as a sieve...)

2000 =  better, (shouldn't let in water in normal conditions)

3000 = good for all year round use.

just in case you see anything in future.
