Sprayway SX2 (2013)

£150.00

The three-pole semi-geodesic tent design has been a backpacking favourite for many years thanks to its well-proven stability, which makes it ideal for more challenging conditions than other tents.

The North Face Tadpole 23

£220.00

This two-person tent from The North Face is lovely and light, perfect for short summer trips. It’s stable, easy to pitch (inner-first) and comes with a compression sack for easy packing and carrying. The mesh inner walls ventilate well, but aren’t too warm (OK in summer). Some may find this tent a little too cosy for long trips.

£290.00

The double-door design is great for keeping the wind out. Perhaps a little narrow at the foot for longer trips.

Vaude Power Odyssee XT 2009

£375.00

Some of my most sleepless nights outdoors have been when the winds have been so strong that the tent either flattened against my face and sprang back each time a gust swept across, or the tent poles snapped because they were not flexible enough to bend under the pressure of a gust. Either way, high winds can ruin your night.But ...
