I bought this as an alternative to a bivvy bag. It's simple and quick to put up. The mesh inner protects you from insects.
Perfect for wild camping and somewhere to just sleep for one person only.
Not suitable for spending much time in other than sleeping (just like a bivvy but better - more private and warmer).

Cons: Stuck on a camp site in wet weather for any length of time trying to live in this would be a nightmare! No use for festivals either where somewhere to chill and shade from the sun is needed.

Positives: Because it is low to the ground the wind doesn't catch it and the front door is a great mini awning if a spare rope is used to tie it open. Packs tiny to the size of a micro sleeping bag.
One tip is to place your foam sleeping mat under the tent to protect it from stony ground and make less clutter inside.
At £20 inc postage it's a steal.

I lived in this tent for over 6 months, packing away every day and putting back up at night.A few mad tips! 1: When i buy a tent i set it up over and over until i can pitch it blind folded and drunk(WCS)from standing to sleeping 3.5min,then you know you will never have a pitch problem. 2:Let superglue seep into the ends of the fibre rods but make sure it doesn't touch the elastic, this prevents the ends from splitting (this only happens after major use). When you pack it away keep the open bag zip on the left,place the folded outer in first then the folded inner,then the rods,this not only makes it easier to open/close the bag it also makes it much easier to take the parts out in order of use.buy a news paper and keep it in the tent because the only water problem you will have is on the inside from breathing out,it has a vent but without two ends open and in such a small space a news paper is a much better option,it absorbs moisture all night and in the morning you wipe the inside dry before packing, also good for 1001 things.After a week i stopped using the cords and never had a problem.On a suny day i would advise wiping it down all over with a sponge and water to prevent pests eating holes(it happens)
If you plan on carrying a tent every day when size and weight is an issue then the nearest thing to this is over £400 I,ve tried Q pitch, ultra light and many in between, this tent is the smallest thing out there ideal for stealth traveling

This is a cracking one person tent. Light, easy to pitch, airy to sleep in and first class value.

I have just used this on a weekend with some very heavy rain and strong winds and it performed admirably.

Now in more detail...

The tent is purely a one person tent and shouldn't be considered for two people, even in a survival situation. The tent takes no more than 5 minutes to pitch and there is sufficient space between the flysheet and the inner tent to allow your rucksack to be stored out of the rain.

The construction of the inner is mainly of mesh, rather than the more traditional close woven material. This keeps the tent feeling light and airy inside, despite its small size. Being 6'2" tall, I did wonder about internal storage space. In practice, there is about a foot of space above your head in which to store small items and, assuming that you are using your cloths as a pillow, then this is sufficient.

There are a couple of tips that I think you might appreciate. Firstly, take along a spare, long guy line and one extra peg. If you use this in combination with an up-turned walking pole (see photo), it allows you to have a small sheltered area in which to cook, rather that being exposed to the elements if the side was rolled up in the normal manner.

Secondly, I would advise a small "sit-mat" or small groundsheet to allow you to keep yourself mud-free as you take off your boots and enter the tent (or later emerge).

I would heartily recommend this lightweight (about 1.2 kg) tent if you are looking for cheap tent that is suitable for the British climate.

Hi, I was looking for a low cost lightweight tent to use for my mtb trip on the WHW april 2011,I bought this tent after reading the reviews on this site. I can highly recommend this tent. It is lightweight and small in size, it fits on my bike rack no problem. I am 6ft 2" and 18 stone so a big guy and I was worried it would be to sml, so I tried it out in my house and I fitted no problem. On the trip I found the space in the tent perfect for my needs. the sml porch is just big enough for your shoes/boots and some other items, I also tried my karrimor wind 25L racksack in it and it just fitted but touched the sides slightly, so if its wet it would be no good, if dry then fine. There is just enough room in the tent for me to stretch out without touching the top/bottom and its broad enough with some room to spare, there is even enough room at your head to store some sml items without lying on them and the head height is good enough not to feel claustrophobic, If you are looking for a sml lightweight tent just to sleep for the night then its perfect, dry, warm, easy to erect and pack up.. it even fits back in the bag easily, look no further. If you want a bit of storage then this is not for you. I used it for wild camping and it can pitch just about anywhere even on the side of a rocky forest track between rocks. I also pitched it on Glencoe at 4 degrees above freezing with a Gelert ZGL167 X-Treme Lite 800 Sleeping Bag(also recommended)and a £5 foam sleeping mat and got a good sleep. I just used it again on the GGW in july 11, I woke up at 7am and a cloud of midges had gathered outside for the feast (me) but none inside so I waited till the sun came out and fought them on even ground, ok they still got me eventually but none in the tent..lol. Meant to add, because its so low to the ground, the shaped design also helps direct the wind over it. For most people the acid test is would you buy another.. so YES I would.
