Eurohike Backpacker II

£40.00

This two-person tent from Eurohike pitches easily (outer-first) and is a good size for two with a nice-sized porch at the front. Reasonably compact and doesn’t weigh much, either. Definitely one for good-weather trips, or purely to see if backpacking’s for you before buying something more expensive.

Coleman Bedrock 2

£70.00

Coleman are best-known for their family tents but they also make a range of low-priced backpacking tents that prove you don’t need to spend a fortune to be able to enjoy camping. The Bedrock 2 weighs in at a very respectable 2.5kg and benefits from two porches, two entrances and a window on the world outside. The inner can also ...

Coleman Rigel X2 tent (2008)

£80.00

ReviewA very lightweight tent that saves a few grams by incorporating the stuffsack into the groundsheet. Also the pegs are very short, but mainly it is the single-skin design that reduces weight. Pitching is very fast as there are just two poles, which slip through mesh sleeves on the outer. There is a mesh vent in the roof that can ...

Aztec Esquina

£130.00

This extremely stable semi-geodesic tent from Aztec, which is light to carry, pitches really easily (inside and outside together) and has just about enough room for two for shorter backpacking trips. Good ventilation, courtesy of mesh panels and two-way zips, and well built. Looks good, too.

Vango Ultralight 200

£150.00

This is a very unusual design of 2-person sub-2kg tent yet it benefits from incredible stability and a surprising amount of living space. It is a single-skin tent that pitches far more easily than appearances would suggest. Once erected, the external door gives direct access to the inner living area, as there is no porch. The headroom easily allows two ...

Macpac Microlight 2009

£200.00

The Macpac Microlight tent is a strong, reliable design, made for extended trips into the wilderness. It pitches easily with a single pole that slips into a single-ended pole sleeve for quick single-handed pitching. The floor is incredibly tough and waterproof, which adds confidence if you’re pitching it on rough ground, while the low-profile shape resists wind and sheds rain ...

Terra Nova Laser Competition 2009

£260.00

The Terra Nova Laser Competition is the lightest tent in the test, with a packed size so small that you hardly notice it in your rucksack. Internal space is very good, enough length for my six foot frame (or two skinny adventure racers) to lie down and sit up straight as well. The porch is huge, and all my gear ...

Vaude Power Lizard UL 2010

£350.00

Is light always right? It’s easy to make a tent lighter after all. Just make it smaller, ditch the porch and use a single layer of material rather than an inner and an outer. But how light can a tent be if it offers two-person space, a double wall and retains a porch? According to Vaude, the Power Lizard holds ...

Robens Mythos Solo 2011

The new Mythos Solo is a departure from Robens’ usual tunnel and geodesic designs. It’s a well-thought-out one-person tent and the jointed, multi-sectioned pole assembly clips on externally, making pitching quick and easy with the inner and fly attaching as one onto the pole. There are plenty of pegging points and there are numerous guy points, so although the Mythos ...
