For a 2 person backpacking tent this is quite heavy at 3.5kg. It's not like you're getting a big tent for that extra weight because you're not. The bottom end of the tent really tapers off so much that you'd have to overlap two sleeping mats at the far end.
The single porch on one side is quite small, not big enough to store 2 rucksacks and no groundsheet coverage.
The tent also has fibreglass poles which are probably a reflection of the low price.
On the plus side, it's extremely quick and easy to pitch and has a door on each side.It stood up to wind and rain well enough too.
It's not really big enough for a two person backpacking tent and too heavy for solo use, but for under £50 it's well made and waterproof. Should be fine for car or motorbike touring.
