Looking for a light weight second hand one man tent, someone like a terra nova laser comp, would be ideal. However, given tight budget (joys of being a student) may compromise on something a little heavier for less.
Also, looking a decent bivy bag that any break the bank either.
Also, open to suggestions if people know of any sale deals atm.
Assume you are also trying Shpock, Gumtree and the like ?
On here people generally know exactly what they have with regards quality and price, on Shpock for example I find that sometimes people are just clearing out stuff that may not have belonged to them and don't really know the quality from the crap, and bargains can be found.
