I bought this tent off a fellow backpacker whilst hitchhiking across Canada, he had only used it a couple of times and i got it for a very reasonable $200 CAD (about £130). boy am i glad i did!

i was traveling west to east and got the tent whilst in Ottawa, up until that point i only had a tarp for shelter! The tent is very well made and from good quality materials too. it's very waterproof, always a plus! the tent is quick to put up and take down too.

when packed away in its sack its quite small and compact, it easily fits in my 40L pack with enough room left for gear for a 2,3 or 4 day hike.

the north face site says it's a 2 person tent, im 6'2" and fit in nicely with enough room for my gear (and a labrador once on dartmoor!), but it would be very cosy with 2 people! and due to the roof design, there is less headroom on one side so would really be quite cramped. but for one person, this tent is ideal!

the price if buying retail, especially in the UK, may put you off, but it is a very good tent that i can highly recommend. It will be going many more places with me that's for sure.

This is a fantastic lightweight waterproof tent that held up wonderfully in 50+ mph wind gusts and rain in Death Valley. I'm 6'2", my wife is 5'5", and we sleep very comfortably together at 32 deg F in this tent.

Our gear fits under the fly reasonably well, but some protection is needed on the exposed side of the gear if you want to keep it completely dry. The fly is very well designed and has many staking points which keep the tent solid in adverse conditions.

My only complaints about this tent are that it has a plastic window in the fly, and that it doesn't come with enough tent stakes. To hold the fly properly, you need four more attachment points; make sure to buy some stakes when getting this.
