4 Reviews of the Westwind 2

Survived the night on Ben Beinn Mac Duibh in High winds and blizzard conditions in february, I was scared that night but was able to cook inside with my MSR stove using the adequate headroom.

(Please don't try this unless you know the extreme danger of rapid death or severe near fatal burns posed by using a powerful paraffin stove inside a small confined space that is made of flammable material. I had good strong constant ventilation due to the high wind speed and an escape plan in place for this, also a way of instantly smothering the stove should it flare. Not for the faint hearted. Carbon Monoxide and fire kills in lesser situations that this)

The tent was rock steady after eventually hammering my Hillberg solid titanium pegs into the bare ice sheet. This is a true mountain tent that will be the last man standing on any camp site. Kept two of us alive and comfortable.

One of those lesser known tents that beats everything else.

Brilliant cosy tent for two tall people or good size for a tall single person as I am 6'6' (2m), good bombproof lightweight tent, used in Scottish winter wild camping on the hills and Alpine 4000 m peaks over the years from 1997, as previous posts has posted great tent :-)

I've had this tent for more than 10 years now (though I notice the design has barely changed at all). I've lost count of the number of nights we've spent in it!

It is a fabulous tent, keeping us safe and dry in the foulest of weather. On many occasions it's been the last tent standing on Scottish camp sites.

For wild camping it is great. Small pack size and light weight, but still tall enough to sit up in and comfortably play cards, even with a gear loft installed.

The porch is too small to comfortably cook in, but if you're thinking of getting this tent, then you already have full waterproofs!

Overall, I highly recommend this tent.

We got this tent for a camping holiday/caving expedition in France. It's very very light which makes it easy to carry and it doesn't take up much space.

It's a tunnel tent with three poles which makes it very easy to pitch. My one grumble is that the inner must be pitched first which can be problematic in the rain. It pitches very quickly though.

It is the most bombproof tent I've ever had. We had three days of massive rain storms in France and it did not leak even when other tents around us flooded and broke. It also withstood the worst the west coast of Ireland could throw at it.

It does get condensation when you have two in it though. This can be solved by opening the vents in the back and front doors. They have fly screens so it's practical to do this. I have one in a light colour which is good as it doesn't heat up as much in hot weather.

It's a small enough tent so don't get this if you're looking for space or a cooking porch. You can fit two rucksacks in the door porch.

For a fast and very light tent for hiking though it's perfect.
