The Cost

Around £80



The is a excellent lightweight backpacking tent which, with it’s excellent features, can give a lot of the more expensive backpacking tents a run for their money. Excellent use of quality material and design make this tent almost ‘bomb proof. One of the more innovative touches I like is the rain cover in the roof, peel it back to reveal a mesh covering that not only allows extra ventilation but also a view of the night sky whilst laid in your sleeping bag.
