- Recommend me a tent
There’s a Vango Banshee 200 in the classifieds at the moment HERE (not mine!).
It’s a great wee tent, only 2kg and good value.
I was in one in Tiso at the weekend, you might not want two people in there for any significant length of time unless you are both relatively small and related/lovers/related lovers 🙂Posted 4 years agoorangeboyMember
Got a Easton kilo 2 person tent on offer last year ,
It’s very light about 1kg , just about get 2 in it but does feel a little fragile
I’ve only used it a few times so far and not in bad weather
Other tents are all vaude and stunning qualityPosted 4 years ago
But guess they are a few quid now
My newest is 13 years olddohMember
vango helium 100, been using one for 3+ years and has held up to some pretty bad scottish weather, packs small and just over 1kg for the 1 man a bit heavier for the 2man helium 200.Posted 4 years ago
should pick them up for 150ish brand new these days only prob is it’s not much good if you over 6ft.houndlegsMember
Just recently picked up a Coleman bedrock 2,although its at the top of the weight limit I like,it seems like a good little tent.Posted 4 years ago
Used it at the weekend,and it was fine(no bad weather though).
Has an entry and small porch either side,so enough room to store stuff.
And cheap enough at £50ish.Herman ShakeMember
Terra Nova Helios 2 for £108:
I love TN tents, pack the fabric part in a little drybag with the poles/pegs separate and it’ll be tiny in your pack or pannier. If you feel particularly fancy separate the inner and outer into dedicated smaller drybags for dryer pitching when doing a multi dayer.
Mountain Hardwear tents are brilliant too and arguably a bit more liveable than minimal without being heavy in some instances. However, unlikely to be cheaper than that beauty up there^.Posted 4 years agoCapt. KronosSubscriber
Banshee – it is my motorbike touring/rally tent of choice. Used it all over the place in stupid weather and it has surprised me how well it has coped (and I am a lifelong believer in the posh and expensive end of the tent market, but several hundred quids worth of tent and several hundred pissedup bikers are not happy bed fellows!).
I keep planning to take mine up into the hills for some sunset/dawn photography too, but small children have put the brakes on that for the moment!Posted 4 years agolukeMember
I’ve a Banshee as well, it’s small and ideal if your on your tod, the only drawback for me is the lack of height.Posted 4 years ago
It has a 5000mm hyrdostatic head, whatever that means, but I’ve used it in all weathers and it’s been faultless, I leave the inner attached so it pitches in one, a couple of minutes to put up and take down.
