Tent info

I realise that backpacking tent needs are a bit different to mcycle needs but page 2 in particular of this thread is interesting.

And here is a thread about a new player in the game of tents.
It looks a bit wee for a mcycle tent but maybe a bigger one will be on their agenda.
I had never heard of them pre this thread on a Paddlers forum I look at now and again.
Paddlers needs for camping stuff are aligned to mcylists more than backpackers.

What make/model is your tent Craig? I know you told me last year at Achiltibuie but I’ve forgotten. Early signs of senility probably. There’s nowt wrong with mine but a man can never have too many tents  ;D
