Outer pitch first is a firm favourite amongst UK campers. Getting the roof on before suspending the inner allows you to get out of the rain quicker and keeps your inner dry.
Tetri can be easily put up by one person. The poles are shock-corded and colour coded to make it easier to put them in the correct sleeves. The stuff bag is generously sized to take the struggle out of putting it away.
You can even use the outer on its own as a bivvy shelter to save weight. The 3 poles provide stability and strength against crosswinds.
Inside a breathable polyester inner is suspended from the outer. It feels light and airy in the summer and the mosquito net door and rear panel provides ventilation while keeping the bugs out. The 8000 MM bathtub floor provides protection from wet ground.
There are loads of handy pockets to keep your tent tidy along with hang loops for your torch or drying your gloves.
There is a good sized porch for your boots and rucksack, allowing you to ventilate the tent whist still providing protection from the elements.

This tent reminds me of the Marmot grid which cost a whole lot more (£280 back in 2010) and wasn't massively lighter at 2.7 kg. Obviously I can't compare the quality of construction etc but it the tent is anywhere... gethin_allen - 28 Jul 2017
I could be wrong (?) but there may not be anything stopping you doing that with this tent. I imagine a lot of tents which can be joined for one-stage pitching are advertised as "outer-first pitching", as... Michael Gordon - 28 Jul 2017
"outer-first pitching ".... My favourite feature of my (much more expensive) LightWave tent is that the inner and outer can be joined for one-stage pitching. It doesn't seem very technical (just clips) so I... simoninger - 28 Jul 2017
I saw one on the flesh in Hathersage. A cracking tent for the money. Pricewise the competition is Vango or Wild Country and this seemed much better than both of them. We've bought a couple of each brand to let the D of... angry pirate - 27 Jul 2017
