Seen this recently. Not sure it's the tent for me but seems a very good deal for someone.
Nemo Hornet 2p for £300
Hey, don't suppose this is still available is it?
Anyone looking to get rid of a good one man tent in London?
I owned and used a MSR Hubba Hubba for the past 3.5 years. My wife and I slept in it close to 100nights in this timeframe and I couldn't be happier.
However, the performance deteriorated over time:
Has anyone else noticed this? MSR rate their products for 3y, but I might reach out anyway as these started appearing a while ago.
light and not shit lol.
Na I dunno, just something that is regarded as a decent tent, not something cheap.
Just want something very basic, was looking at the six moon design lunar solo but didn't really want to fork out for it but I might end up doing just that.
Asked because I have a 20yo Macpac 1P tent here that I used for 4 months while cycle touring Europe and I think its been unpacked once in the time since (to see if both of us fit in it for GNT ride - we did, just). It weighs around the kilo mark I think but it's kinda big compared to some options these days.
Spent hours looking for a hexagon cut tarp of medium weight and price, found only amazon budget random junk/possible budget gold (who knows!) or £180 to £300* dyneema /cuban fabric. Gave up and bought the first thing that fitted the bill a "trekmates" hex, will see what arrives. Definitely not light at 800g! Once factored in weight of hammock, Ridge line and some straps we are less than 200g from an actual full tent.
Have a F10 Argon that's done around 7 years moderate use, find it hard to beat, cosy 2 man, 3 pole made from decent stuff, 1.8kg real weight in bag with right number of pegs. Not really a mountain tent but does what we needed it to do.
*yes seems to be possible to spend £300 on simple sheet of material with a basic edge and attachment points on it. The argon was barely more than that.
that weighs more than double my 3m x 3m flat tarp I made myself, but costs the same...all you need is a sewing machine!
Thanks for the offer but I think space is definitely going to be at a premium.
I ended up buying one of the lanshan 1p tents off of amazon, pains me but I couldn't find it anywhere else that would come in time. We will see how it goes, hopefully it doesn't rain and it should be fine.
and a mighty tarp it is too. I will make one one day
Testing my new Pillow.
Decent price for a Gatewood Cape, just shy of £140 delivered.
Have just finished rinsing the dust off my lanshan (flames creed) 1 and 2 person tents after a two day shakedown trip to East Sussex.
Both survived the attentions of an inattentive 4 year old, although I had packed a spare carbon tent pole in case of disaster.
No issues pitching them, although the tent floor is so thin you do have to put some effort into clearing away stones.
I'll probably invest in a proper tent footprint but otherwise 10/10 because my wife said she's happy to go on another trip.
Still a bit surprised you can get camping gear, cook kit, and food for 3 people into two 20L panniers and a handlebar dry bag! A big departure from my DofE days.
