/ Tent Advice (am I being a picky bugger?)
Wild Country Trisar 2
Karrimor Elite Ridge 2
Vango Banshee 2
Wild Country Zephyros 1.
Any input would be great. Cheers
You're going to take an expensiveish tent to a concert, Glastonbury at that?
Buy two tents, a good one and a crap pop-up one for the festival.
I've got a Banshee 200, It's a good little tent, and will hold up to the weather, but you may find it's a little bit low-roofed inside if you want to work in it. The porch isn't that big either, just enough for boots to stay in and dry really.
Really advise getting a cheaper tent for the festival - you'll be gutted when some berk breaks a pole in your fancy new tent.
In my extensive experience of Glastonbury you should be alright in crew/traders camping. I'll be talking my Banshee this year.
Get a 3/4 man from somewhere like vango or decathalon about £40/£50. I have been to a festival in a small backpacking tent and its not much fun, better to have plenty of room with the English weather when weight isn't an issue.
Decathlon popup... even if someone jumps on it, it'll simply bounce up.
Can be had with a small porch or somehitng.
