This is my trusted Six Moon lightweight tent. It uses two trekking poles to pitch and it has never let me down. It’s showing some small signs of wear now but is still very servicable, presentable and will offer years of backpacking joy.Retailed at over £200 several years ago and now can be yours, to enable you to test the backcountry camping game, for just £49.50

The dual pole structure is slightly offset from the center of the tent. The offset yields extra headroom when lying down, reducing that claustrophobic feeling. Further, it allows the Skyscape to be extremely rigid when guyed out, creating a structure capable of riding out the worst storms.
The Skyscape employs Hybrid Double Wall construction. Over 80% of the canopy is separated from you by a mesh wall, keeping that wet canopy at bay. The Hybrid Double Wall construction allows the vestibules to roll back. On warm summer nights, convert the Skyscape into a net tent; pesky bugs stay outside while you enjoy the view and breeze from inside.
The Skyscape’s large side entry door lets you easily enter the tent or retrieve gear. With floor length over 100 inches, the Skyscape accommodates the tallest hikers. You can carry a light tent and still sleep well.
