the GF has somehow convinced me that bumming around Greece for a fortnight in August will be more exciting than staying in an apartment in South Tirol, drinking fine red wine and ragging my bike along some of the finest trails i have ever ridden.
already have a tent, but it is over 11 years (WOW!) old and is showing it's age (and years of neglect). it as served us well over the years seeing 8 months continuous use in Australia (pitching it almost every night) and a few week long trips since then.
it is also a little plump, 2,5kg. which isn't bad, but not brilliant.
want something that is lightweight, but also sturdy/robust enough to withstand being perched on a mountain in unpleasant weather. 3 season usage, definitely not in winter. enough room to cook (i.e. porch) would be a bonus.
went to a store yesterday and saw some offering from Vaude that weighed in around 1,8kg and cost around 300 notes.
what else is out there?
