Highlander Forces 2

£65.00

The Highlander Forces 2 2-person tent is part of Highlander’s specialist Military range of outdoor products. It is the heaviest tent here, but it does come in at the lower end of the price range. It might be good enough for the forces, but is it good enough for a hill-walker stepping out from civvy street to the hills?   ...

Coleman Cobra 2 2011

£70.00

Coleman is perhaps best-known for its range of camping stoves and fuel, along with its family range of tents and sleeping bags. But the brand also makes a few great little backpacking tents – the Cobra 2 being the smallest and lightest.

Robens Summer Wind

Use your trekking poles to hold the shelter up, and you get acres of space inside plus plenty of mesh vents to allow good airflow without letting the bugs in. Well, that is exactly what the Robens Summer Wind has been designed to achieve. The big advantage ...

Gelert Apex 2 2011

Wild Country Coshee 2 (2013)

£100.00

The Wild Country Coshee 2 offers side entry to both sides of its two-pole wedge shape and as there is a porch on each side, it’s well-designed for two campers wanting their own space.

Lafuma Active 2 tent (2008)

£100.00

ReviewA very lightweight tent that pitches very easily as you just slip a couple of poles into the sleeves around the outside of the outer, and a couple of guy lines and pegs finish the task. Ladder-lock adjusters around the base allow easier tensioning too. This is a single-skin tent without a porch, so once you open the outer door ...

The Coleman Cobra 2 is a side-entry two-pole tunnel with a porch on each side. It pitches flysheet-first with colour-coded poles sliding through sleeves around the outside of the flysheet.

Alpinus Ararat

£119.00

A sizeable two-person tunnel tent from Alpinus, but one that is fiddly to pitch (inner-first), and which doesn’t seem to hang very well at all, no matter how many different adjustments you make. It has two good-sized porches – room for storing all your kit – and plenty of sleeping space. Ventilates well, too.

The Aztec Rapido 2 is a single-skin tent, so there’s no inner, outer and porch area; it’s just a shelter with acres of space inside.
