/ Best 2 or 3 man tent/tent deal for under £100?
Opinions of that tent also welcome!
Thanks in advance.......
If you could manage an extra £20, the Wild Country Hoolie 2 is pretty impressive, I was in one in Tiso the other week. Loads of room for a reasonable weight 2 man tent. Good build quality too.
Avoid the WC Zephryos tents, well made, but they are absolutely tiny.
Argos used to sell a tent that was either a copy, or a re-branded Vango Banshee under the Litchfield name. It was about £35. I can't see it in their current catalogue, but it may be available elsewhere.
Depends entirely whether you are camping out of the car.
I would recommend Wynnster tents. You wouldn't want to carry it on a backpack though! But they are big and cheap and reliable.
Oh, and I've always bought a 4 man dome tent - sleeps 3 comfortably, spacious for 2, no longer to put up than a 2/3 man dome tent and usually only a tenner more, plus 4 man dome tents tend to be slightly longer in the sleeping compartment so fits a 6 footer like me
For car camping I reckon this fits the bill, a bit of room for those rainy days
If you can stretch to £120 I can thoroughly recommend the Robens Atmos from Cotswold Outdoors, rrp £240
VERY light for a two man tent (provided you are good friends LOL) and bomb proof when up, in any weather. Very well made, well thought out
Did I say it was light ? ..... 1.5Kg for a 2-man tent
+1 for the Coleman Cobra. Difficult to beat for the price. The best feature is the fact that there is *loads* of length, so if you are tall, no worries! Could definitely fit 3 in it.
Coleman Cobra looks like a new version of my friends old Epsilon which is still going strong after ten years. I have a 6 or 7 year old Coleman Phad X2 and can vouch for general build quality!
Surely something with a bit more room (such as the Vango Berkley) or if that's too big, this:
Enough room to sit up in and a decent enough porch for the wet dog :)
To be honest I'm looking at the range of tents available for the money and am surprised what's available!
