/ Looking For a Lightweight Tent
It will be used for cycle touring so weight is the primary concern.
The Outdoor Shop in Stony Stratford have the Wild Country Zephyros 2 on offer for £89.10.
It's a great tent and whilst 2 man, at a listed weight of 1.79kg, I would consider that and appreciate the greater space available.
I have used it in heavy rain, and it was fine. I would say it is great for one. It would be a squeeze for two.
Can be found for £230 if that's affordable?
The poles seem good to me and although the bag is light I think it will be fine if you treat it reasonably.
I've just been reading this blog: http://ultralightcycling.blogspot.co.uk/ which has some interesting ideas on weight saving.
I have a vango banshee 200 that I have only used once you can have for £60 plus postage.
