There can’t be many simpler pleasures than sitting back in your camp chair with your tent pitched and a fine day of hiking behind you.
Whether you’ve just climbed Scafell Pike (978m), scrambled along a rocky ridge in Snowdonia or ticked off another section of the South West Coast Path, a good tent is exactly what you want to return to at the end of the day.
As you can imagine for a tent of this price, the Osprey 2EX packs in a lot of technology. One of the most impressive things about this two-man tunnel tent is the HydroTex AWT siliconised polyester flysheet. Why is it so special? Well, it has been specifically designed to retain its tension in all-weathers, meaning it doesn’t sag in wind and rain, retaining its stability and weather protection. It also has a high tear strength and impressive UV resistance.
It’s spacious, pitches quickly (flysheet first or as one) and uses strong DAC aluminium alloy poles, while a large porch area is perfect for storing kit. The technical specs make for good reading too. The floor of the tent is made from tough 75D polyester Taffeta with strong water repellent ratings (a hydrostatic head of 10,000mm), so you can sleep comfortably knowing you’re not going to wake up with a soggy bottom. At 2.72kg, it’s pretty lightweight, too!
The good news is that you can actually win one of these tents by entering below…
