There are a good selection of small Eurohike and Highpoint tents available from Millets for, what I consider to be, a very good price. The 3000HH means that they have a very good level of waterproofing and should keep you dry in bad weather. One at least seems to have good reviews (http://www.reviewcentre.com/reviews152901.html)

These would make very good starter tents.

Some people have been put off camping for ever, because of a poor tent. I am NOT saying these are poor tents, but you really do get what you pay for.

Tents with a hydrostatic head of 300 are probably fine for summer camping, or for the novice, but 5000 is much better.

what are you on about most of these are 3000. 1600 is usually the min rating so 3000 is good - my vango 500 is 2000 and its never leaked and last year it didnt leak in hours of torrential rain

the only one id worry about is the cheapo one which is 1000 and has a single skin and side opening - i think that just implies disaster

@ royals - wbmkk is partly right, it's not good when Millets' own website describes the Eurohike 'Tay' as "Lightweight, durable and waterproof" when it only has a 1500mm HH - novices could easily be caught out : especially as they're probably going camping in Summer, when the rain can actually be much heavier than in Winter. ("Perfect for couples enjoying a romantic camping trip"...you might get wet, but not in a good way !)

You're right though about 3000mm HH being quite decent - I've taken a Eurohike Backpacker all over the place for about 8 years (at least 50 trips), and it's only leaked slightly during really prolonged heavy rain (though the *floor* is prone to letting water through when anything's leaning on it - but this is the 'ultralight' one of their range, others have more sturdy floors).

I think one of the most common problems is that many people seal up their tents at night for warmth and then mistake condensation (think of cloudy breath on cold mornings; think of 8 hours of cloudy breaths) for 'leakage'.
