Purchased last year for bikepacking/wildcamping. Compared to all the mainstream manufacturers I think it's an unbeatable combination of everything I wanted. Small, light pack size, loads of room, great quality. Pointless to bivi when you can have a great little light tent. Miles better than an Vango Banchee 200 - and same money (Banchee is tiny in comparison)
Had 10 nights out in it so far. Once woke to find everything frozen but still warm in the tent ( I have got a decent ground mat).
Haven't been in much wind or rain but I'd be surprised if it was an issue.
Despite good ventilation I have still had condensation on cold nights - but that's unavoidable I think. Fine when warmer outside.
Plenty of room for 2 to sleep but wouldn't be much room for bags unless you can squeeze them in the porch.For wild camping I'd prefer it to be a darker colour but I haven't been spotted yet while out! Pitch late/break early anyway.
Looking forward to more trips.
Tricky to pitch at first, but gets easier with each successive attempt. Not enough pegs are provided to properly stay all ropes and rings.
Spacious for one and big enough for two on lightweight adventures. I have used it in Scotland on sea kayak expeditions brilliant in snow wind and rain and back packing nice and lightweight for two people a great easy pitch good value tent I love it.
Spent a couple of weeks in it this Summer doing parts of the Ridgeway and the South Downs Way on my own. I needed a lightweight tent at a reasonable budget that I knew I could trust, and I needed it in a hurry. This looked to be the best bet.
Well constructed, good looking, sexy little tent pegs, pitches easily, lots of room for one person, it inspires confidence. Used it in thunderstorms and torrential rain and knew it would stand up to it.
Too small for two people and kit. The porch is tiny, too small to get any rucksac in it. Two major problems; the second door overhangs the inner, so that if you try to exit that side in the rain the sleeping bags will get wet. Likewise the main door - the floor of the tent seems to be bigger than the top of the fly, so in even quite gentle rain it was impossible to keep sleeping bags dry. The inner tent needs a second tie, nearer the end, but that's easily fixable with a needle and thread. You can't sit in the porch and cook easily in the rain, and you definately can't cook with the porch door shut.
If they took out the second door and made it a bit smaller and lighter it would be a great one person tent.
looks good, some nice touches
small, and not good in the rain
This tent balances the equation of room-v- weight/size pleasingly.
A roomy tent for a solo camp that is easy to put up. It kept me dry in steady summer rain. Porch space was useful for hiking boots. There was enough space to keep my pack in my tent and still have a comfy sleep. I havne't yet hiked and wildcamped with it but this would be suitable for the job.
quick to put up, porch space
I bent the lightweight pole on first use
This tent is brilliant. Never had a tent before and chose this because of its weight! Really easy to pitch, took only 7-8 minutes for the first time. Enough room for 2 people - maybe not the most spacious tent but ultralight and compact.
Easy to pitch, ultralight, hooks in the corners
Cannot cover the nets on the inner doors
I cycle so something small was my main objective, its actually quite roomy opened out and I suspect good in a storm and I am comparing it to a very expensive expedition tent
Not easy to pack
This truly is a motorbiker's best friend. Light and compact due to short size of poles means that it fits any pannier on the market. I thouroughly recommend this tent!!
Super easy to set up and dismantle.
Light, compact and super easy to assemble.
Great tent. Hooks in the inside are very useful. Triangle fastening things on the strings to tie down the tent are easy to use. Great size for one person. Seems durable, but we shall see what its like after a year or so. Got some rock pegs separately for problematic hard ground. You can always cook in the alcove at the side of the tent if you really need to instead of doing it completely outside. Just wish the tent bag was slightly bigger to make it a little easier to fit the tent in after rolling it up, but its not that bad, just being picky. ( fyi, you CAN get spare parts for it!) Great value for money. Love quechua.
Good size for one, light, easy to put up
Could have a slightly bigger tent bag
Just come bace from the OMM in scotland, and this tent was amazing. Its light and small so easily fitted into a running sack of 30l. It is very quick to put up and laughed at the howling winds and sheet rain we encountered overnight. Considering its low price, the build quality is superb so I highly recommend it. And being 6ft2 there was heels of space inside for me and my team mate.
Space, easy to erect, survival in harsh conditions
There really are none!
