When buying a tent I was having a hard time trying to find all of the features that I required. Two man, Large porch, outer pitching first, 2kg and under £200. I though that I would have to comprise that was until I found the Spirit 200. I was so excited to get it and couldn't wait to get out onto the hill to try it out. On the first trip it did not let me down it was perfect. The porch was brilliant just large enough to fit two sacks and wet gear. It was light weight so did not weigh heavy in my sack. After a comfortable and dry night I felt my wishes had come true.
It is hard to criticize such a great tent but there are a couple of down sides. Despite appearing to have good ventilation it does suffer from large amounts of condensation. In addition to this it is a tunnel tent so is not the most stable of tents, but I have been used it in windy and wet conditions without any problems.
For the money and the conditions that I go out in I am impressed with its performance and it comes highly recommended for three season use in Britain.
