I was looking in the camping shop today, and noticed a nice tent, a vango Tempest 200:
it's got a porch which is big enough for panniers, shoes etc, is green which is good for wild camping, is fly pitch first, which I like, and is good and sturdy. It gets really good write ups, and is in my price range. I can sit up in it, and there's plenty of room. the only downside is the weight. It's 2.5 kg, which is about 600 g heavier than my present tent - a North face tadpole.
I like the Tadpole, but mine is old now, and the groundsheet leaks, so it needs a footprint (more weight and messing about), and it's blue, so not so good for wild camping. It's also three poles which is a bit more messing about (though it's free standing, which is great). Bit the main drawback, other than it leaking, is that it's inner pitch first, which I've never liked.
So how much does your tent weigh, and is 2.5 kg too much for you (I know it's all subjective, but just interested, really)
