roomy one person tent

Have used this a few times now and am very pleased with it. Initially I found it a little flappy in the wind but have discovered that a lot of that can be removed by facing head end into wind and careful adjustment of tensioners. It could fit 2 people at a pinch but to my mind it is a good lightweight tent (about 1.4Kg) for one person. Pitching time is quick, ( I leave the 2 single end poles permanently in place)fly and inner pitch together, but I probs spend another 5 mins fiddling with adjustments and tensioners to remove the flappiness and get it taut. The bag is very big and easily takes the tent and poles . I also put my inflatable mattress and footprint in, and the whole lot is a shade under 2Kg and this ties on the bottom of my rucksack. The footprint is the one for the Vango Zenith 200. (it is the same design of tent just made from heavier materials). The tent has plenty of space inside for me and my kit with a usable porch outside. Condensation has not been a problem - I suspect the footprint probably helps a bit with that. The pegs are lightweight aluminium and strong. Interestingly it does not seem to need the 2 middle pegs at all as the pole and tension from the guys hold it in place . I did a lot of research before buying this and still can't really find anything to better it at the weight and price point.

Recently purchased and superb tent. Amazingly light for what it is offering on performance. Ruined by the footprint being discontinued, feel as though I wasted my money as I would of purchased an alternative with available footprint. Disappointed, buyers be aware.
