I bought this for motorcycle touring as my MacPac microlite gets smaller as I get older, somehow.

It's ok. The poles have to bend a lot, and so deform slightly, and there's not much head height but it's not an expensive tent and the huge porch is a real winner when you have wet gear.

The groundsheet is lightweight so a footprint of some sort is necessary.

I do a fair bit of cycle camping and needed a tent that was as light as possible but had enough room for all my gear. I also wanted some sort of porch area for cooking. This tent fits the bill. I have to agree with Bertie300's review apart from the fact that I would say that this 2 man tent is the largest 2 man tent I've ever seen(I'm 5'11 and totally enough for me). The porch is massive for such a small tent and can hold all 4 of my panniers. Like Bertie300 said, there is a largish gap at the bottom of the porch area but not a real issue.

It's stood up to high gusting winds and torrential rain for hours.

The head room is excellent as I can easily sit up.

The reason I've not given it 10/10 is only because of little niggly things such as :

1.The 'mozzie' net is only at the top of the door. I like it when you can open the whole area of the door if you wish.

2.I found it was a little tricky to get good tension on some of the tent(just being picky really)

3.Also found the tensioning straps at the bottom of poles a bit fiddly(being picky again)

4.The tent pegs are quite easy to bend but they do supply 4 more than you need.

5.And finally the guy rope tensioners are badly designed and so don't work that well. Will probably by a different set to replace(my friends cheapo tent has a lot better tensioners).

Although there are a couple of small issues the tent itself is great and would definitely recommend it.

I bought this tent as a 1 man tent to go wild camping in Scotland. I would not like to think that 2 people can occupy this tent in comfort. Small pack size and light weight means I can stash it in my motorcycle top box with room to spare.

This tent is well made and very easy to put up and take down. Five mins' to put up and even less to pack is a real bonus. One person can put this tent up with extreme ease due to the closed ends on one side of the pole sleeves. Each pole and sleeve is colour coded so you can't go wrong.

There is plenty of room in the sleeping area for 1 person and personal effects, I am 5'10' of average build. The inside height of the tent is good enough to sit up and get changed without too much hassle. The porch area is great for cooking in but not so good for open storage of non waterproof bags etc as the front of the tent has quite a big gap around the skirt of the tent, the gap however is rather good at reducing condensation.

The ground sheet in the porch area is detachable which makes cleaning a breeze. The ground sheet in the sleeping area is thin but more than adequate for flat ground but I would use a separate ground sheet where rocky ground was encountered.

Weather wise this tent can take a very heavy down pour and strong winds and still remain waterproof which is after all the ultimate goal with any tent.

The entrance to the tent is from either the side or the front which is good should the wind change direction.

As a 2 person tent I would say this tent just scrapes in but as a 1 person tent it beats anything in the price bracket.
