/ One Man Tent
was just looking for some advice regarding a good but relatively cheap one man tent,looking to spend under £100 as wont be using it a lot, just need it for over night ocassionaly. A nice small, easy to pitch tent would be ideal.
Tempted by this but I bought the argos ones a couple of years ago.
Looks more of a bivvy tent than a proper tent, would you be able to sit up in it, it's only got 64cm of headroom in the inner?
WC Zephyros 1 for £85 from Sports Direct.
I agree that the WC Zephyros 1 is a good call. I bought the slightly larger Zephyros 2 late last year and have been very pleased. I disagree about it being summer-only though - mine stood up to a fair wind/rain pounding in the Lakes earlier this year, and withstood it easily (no leaks, no serious folding-over).
My only comment is that the pegs are crap - I'd suggest replacing with something stronger.
Second that about the Zephyros - packet of pegs from Alpkit should sort that out though.

That was exactly my solution too!
Mine (Zeph 2) stood up OK in 50mph wind. Couldn't sleep because of the flapping, but tent didn't collapse!
As you know, the Zephyros 2 has its own little fan club on OM:
The thread has 100k+ hits for only 470+ posts; must be one of the highest hit:post ratios I can think of.
Yes. If I didn't have a laser comp, I'd look very seriously at the Zephyros.
