The Tent

 The Banshee is a small, lightweight but durable tent that can be used for hiking, extreme camping and standard camping, it’s an all round tent that is so simple and quick to erect but withstands the elements amazingly well, weather its wind heavy downpour or other, the Banshee stands like a rock in the ground. Also the Banshee comes with very useful points, for example: tensioning straps on each peg point (TBS®), strong but lightweight alloy polls, optional pockets that can be hung, very strong elastics, a flowing ventilation system that is adjustable and all this for the best point of all, the price.

 The Cost

Around £60 - £65 a bargain

 Verdict

Very good for backpacking and general camping as it is warm and cosy inside, but surprisingly spacious for the size of it, extremely robust and hardwearing materials have been used, and it even comes with a lifetime guarantee. Perfect tent for one, two at a push ( you would have to be good friends) but very good looking tent that will give you a protective shell against the worst elements and all for an astonishing price, well worth the money!
