little good tent
on 7 May 2014
First of all compromising is a must when you choose a tent by weight: this one, being under 2kg of weight, has no double layer and it is not big!
Also for people not accustomed with camping, you need to be aware that this shape of tent is kept in place by two vertical poles and this feature limits the easiness in going in and out, it could be a problem if you are big or very tall.
Also it is a bit more complicated to setup if you are a beginner and alone compared to an igloo shape one.
Despite being single layer, it survived well a night of decent rain, but you will have condensation inside when you keep everything shut, the little ventilation system seems not being enough.
My suggestion is to add a taurpaulin to it, I used one to setup a little porch in front of it using walking poles and one of the vertical poles, and if you buy one of the right size you can make it working as a second layer against torrential rain.
I have used only once so I cannot say anything on the durability, it looks a bit fragile and it would be better handling it with care.
