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.

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.
