Great high quality lightweight backpacking/cycle touring tent. Weight and Price are estimates from memory but hard to better for the accommodation/storage space even today hence still in use. Bought in the 1980s and still going strong in 2013 with one re-proof of the groundsheet in its life!
Ideal for splitting between two cycles or packs, Pegs, Poles, Fly and inner all separately packed. Did do two two week Solo tours of Ireland in the early nineties with this tent.
Ample room for two with vast storage capability for two packs cooking etc in entrances (use survival bag or similar to keep the damp off).
Simple quick and easy to erect (no fibre pole to thread/Break/Rip!
Sadly Saunders tents are no longer produced. Founder of company, Robert Saunders passed away in 2012.
