Use code "MjSYgZ" for 15% off to get it at £61.20 with free delivery! Also available from Millets as they are part of the same group.

Already a good price as most places seem to be selling for £80-85+.

A great tent for the money, check out reviews. It is fairly lightweight at 2.5kg and excellent value at this price. See specs below:

Why the cold votes? Am I missing something? Can you guys get it cheaper?

I don't understand it either . . .
If this is what you want then it's the cheapest you can get it.
Heated you back up to -1˚C

and back down again . . .

Ha thanks

A tent like this is certainly not for everyone... you aren't going to use it for a family camping holiday for example.

It's an expedition tent that you would use for a night or 2 maybe while backpacking or wild camping, which is exactly what I bought it for. This was the cheapest I could find it anywhere so hopefully it will help someone else.

Heat from me. This is a great tent if you want something light, small and tough without spending big bucks. People voting this cold probably don't do much camping as they're comparing it to a Tesco et al 2 man tent at £20 with a decent quality monsoon-proof Vango.

Also look how quickly you can get this up (oooo err). You could have this pitched in a couple of minutes on your own if you had to.

This is a DofE recommended tent IIRC so should be good.

'currently unavailable'

I think its out of stock?

They also have the Banshee available at a reasonable price, a bit smaller but a bit lighter.

Seems to be OOS on the site yes. I know a few stores have these in stock at Millets for the same price. I was told that both Croydon and Kingston stores had a few in on the phone yesterday although I would phone and check first. Best price in store is £65.
