In reply to stealintime: terra nova laser competition, excellent condition and only used 5/6 times in summer conditions. Would be looking for about 280

Check out Field and Trek. They've got some good deals on lightweight tents terra nova, north face etc.

Most retailers have similar deals too.

In reply to stealintime: I have a Vango Banshee 200 used once that you can have for 50 plus postage. Although this is sold as a two man tent, it isn't, it's a reasonably sized 1 man tent.

I have a green Hilleberg Akto for sale 250. Excellent condition except for some abrasion to one of the guylines. Photos here:

Four years old with light use (no more than 15 nights out).

I am 6'2" and I find it pretty roomy for one with a really good sized vestibule. I have also shared it with my wife on occasion so it is possible (though cosy) to sleep 2.

Stats from Cotswold website:

425
Packed size: 58 x 17cm
Capacity: 1 Person
Fabric: Kerlon 1200 Ripstop (silicone treated nylon)
Pole: DAC Featherlite NSL
Pitches all-in-one
Vestibule

HI

I have a Mountain hardwear Viperine for sale 100 quid.

I have used it 3 times, it also comes with the optional footprint so you can use it as a stand alone shelter, its a 2 man tent but quite small so would make an excellent one man,
check out the following review

My mate turned up at Pembroke with one of these (he's about 6ft), claiming it cost him 30 of t'interweb:

It was light, small, and quick/easy to rig. Made my Army surplus DPM bivvy bag and tarp seem a bit overweight!
It still might be a bit snug for you, though.

In reply to stealintime: Argos, go outdoors, Tesco all do cheap tents that are not too bad.

Gelert Solo is a really bad tent. Don't waste your money.

That looks like the famous Argos Tiger Paws which was a copy of the Sierra Designs tent. Which reminds me I have to sell the TP I bought as a spare...
