This is also true
Absolutely gutted I missed those terra nova tents at £180 as I'm currently after one at the moment. Don't suppose anyone here has one up for grabs at all?
My old tarp finally gave up. What's the current go to silnylon tarp?
MYOG 3mx3m with 20d silnylon is hard to beat
otherwise Borah Gear make really good ones
Thanks. MYOG would be my first choice if I had a sewing machine. I really don't fancy making one by hand.
seem to still be available here
understood. I'd get this then
Was just looking at that. Ta.
That's what I had. 800g tarp is a bit much. I'd like my bivvy+tarp to weight less than my tent.
that's why i'd go for the superlight small if i hadn't made a janky home version out of tyvek
How did I miss that! It's perfect, thanks.
I use that tarp. Works well with bike as support
Nice! Just ordered it.
Nice one! Hopefully bagged one now, thanks!
Got a bit drunk and bought the new hubba hubba.
Impressed how light and compact it is.
Excited to erect!
Looking for a recommendation for a backpacking tent. Doesn't need to be super-light; convenience, robustness and comfort are more what I'm after, but it will have to be carried (on public transport rather than up and down mountains):
2 man or generous 1 man capacity
Pitches all in one go
Decent porch area for rucksack and boots
Less than £200
Less than 2.2kg
Decent head height (fairly strong want)
Less than 1.8kg
Tub-style groundsheet for inner
Pockets/gear lofts inside
Less than £125
I've found quite a few that satisfy many of those requirements, but nothing that's perfect. The main issue seems to be that the really nicely lightweight tents all pitch flysheet first. I've thought about the MSR Elixir, Vango banshee and Coleman Cobra but none are quite right in all areas.
More cheap Terra Nova tents:
@ffm Might the pioneer 2 do what you need, apart from price?
Thanks for the tip. Difficult to say via that website, since they require you to log in to see anything and can therefore >>>>>>>>
I'll check the pioneer 2 elsewhere.
The sign-up thing is pretty bothersome, but fwiw SportPursuit is a decent enough retailer. I have bought lots through them and sold stock I wanted to clear from my own business with them. My go-to guy is no longer working there so I can't 100% vouch for how it's run now, but I check for stuff on there quite a bit and will undoubtedly shop again
My cloud up2 groundsheet just flew away to freedom on a windy rannoch moor.
Dont suppose you have one kicking around? Happy to pay!!
I repaired my tent in the end so I have a use for it now sorry
My hoolie 2 pole snapped AGAIN during storms on friday. Its going in the bin, second time its happened. All the ropes set up.
Last time i sent it in they gave me a new pole and sew up torn pole sleeve, cost me £100. Not again
