Eurohike Backpacker II

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.

Verdict: An entry-level tent at a price you can’t baulk at.

Packed weight: 2.8kg

Dimensions: 51x14cm (packed); 140x315x100cm (pitched)
