/ 1 man tent needed
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.
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:
Packed size: 58 x 17cm
Capacity: 1 Person
Fabric: Kerlon 1200 Ripstop (silicone treated nylon)
Pole: DAC Featherlite NSL
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,

Why ASAP, getting evicted?
What's your budget?
My mate turned up at Pembroke with one of these (he's about 6ft), claiming it cost him £30 of t'interweb:

It still might be a bit snug for you, though.
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...
