Airgo Solus Horizon 4 Inflatable Tent Review

Airgo Solus Horizon 4 Inflatable Tent Review

Welcome to my review of the new Airgo Solus Horizon 4, Inflatable Tent.

The Airgo Solus Horizon 4, is a 4 man inflatable tent which is very stylish, compact and super quick to pitch as all the inflatable tents are.  This tent is super lightweight for a tent of its size which I feel is another added bonus.

The Airgo Solus Horizon 4 has become quite a popular little tent this year and has been popping up on sites up and down the country and once you have read this review you will see why.

This is a great little tent that comes with its own pump included.  With a pitch time of only 5 minutes, it makes it an ideal tent for couples looking for a little extra room or a small family looking to get away for weekends. This tent is easily pitched by one person if required so makes it a great tent for 1 parent families to get away in.

These are very sturdy and rigid tents once inflated but have enough give to stand up to the elements and strong winds.  I was very surprised that it seemed just as sturdy as some steel-framed tents.

Inflatable tents are designed so you peg them out first, inflate the air beams then peg out the guy lines.

Watch the video to see how easy it is to pitch.

The Airgo Solus Horizon 4 comes in one bag and the pump and steel pegs are also supplied.

 

The Specs

 

Structure No poles required as this is an air beam inflatable tent.

Tent has 3 air-beams each with individual inflation points

Guy Lines Tent comes with pre-attached guy lines which are brightly coloured (luminous) and even have their own little storage pockets for when stowed away to save them getting tangled
Fabrics The tent is made of super lightweight fabric, 190T polyester PU for the flysheet and a breathable polyester for the inner bedroom. The tent has a fully sewn in groundsheet.
Cable Entry  Yes there is a cable entry point on this tent but an added extra is that there is also an internal cable entry to take power into the bedroom pod.
Windows There are 4 generous sized windows in the living area to allow plenty of light into the tent. 2 triangular windows to the front and one on each side (1 of which is on the door panel).  All windows have privacy curtains so you can close them when needed and they can all be rolled back and toggled in place when not in use.
Doors 2 large doors. 1 to the front of the tent and 1 to the side. The side door also has a mesh panel that you can zip closed, leaving the door open but keeping the bugs out and a window incorporated for additional light when closed. This makes the tent more versatile when it comes to the way you wish to layout your living area.
Ventilation Ventilation panels to the rear of the tent to help prevent the build-up of condensation.
Bedrooms 1 bedroom, bedroom pod also has storage pockets for keeping items secure and off the floor.
Living Area 1 large living area that is light and airy due to windows and doors.  This provides space for your other camping equipment or even a table and chairs set.  There is plenty of storage in the living area and also a central lantern hanging point.
Optional Extras For this tent you can also purchase a made to size footprint and a carpet for some added comfort.  Please note these are optional extras and do not come with the tent.

Conclusion

I really like this little air beam tent.  It is much more sturdy than I would have initially thought, more so than some of the poled tents the same size.  It is compact and lightweight which is fantastic for grabbing and going on last minute weekend getaways.  The fact that the pump is included and the pitch time is so quick also gives great benefits when you want to get away.  This is recommended as a weekend tent and this is exactly what I would use it for.  If you have to pitch a tent yourself for any reason I would definitely consider this as a great piece of kit.

  1. Wow, so cool! I’m apparently WAY out of the camping loop, because I’ve never even heard of a tent with inflatable “poles”! This Airgo Solus Horizon 4 Inflatable Tent sounds so lightweight compared to my tent. I really do love my big tent, but I have an issue with the weight of the whole thing. Haha, I’m thinking now that I NEED to replace mine.

    Having a ceiling high enough for my husband to stand under is important. How high is this tent’s ceiling?

    I know this would make an awesome wedding shower gift for many couples!

    Here’s another question: can you tell me how many storage pockets are inside?

    I know many folks who go camping all the time, and others who would love to. I’ll definitely pass this post along to everyone!

    • Hi Laura, 

      I am glad you liked the post and the tent.  The Airgo Solus Horizon 4 is one of the smaller air beam tents and has a ceiling height of around 185cm.  There are bigger air beam tents on the market now and I will be reviewing a few of these over the coming weeks, so keep checking in.

      This tent has 4 good sized pockets in the living area (on the outside of the bedroom pod) great for stowing away smaller items. There are also 2 pockets on the lower inside of the bedroom pod, ideal for keeping the room floor tidy.

      I personally love the fact they are easier to put up and more light weight that conventional poled tents. You can also purchase an electric pump to inflate them!  I just hope that the air beam tents will allow more senior people or those with mobility issues to camp for a few years longer than they would using heavier tents. 

      Happy Camping

      Michelle
