/ 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,

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...
