New to the site but REALLY need some help.
Went camping in the Ogwyn Valley from wednesday to friday morning (today). We had winds of about 50-60 mph winds constant and gusts of about 75-80 mph. Went in a Blacks Enigma 2.5 and it was brilliant. It withstood the wind brilliantly, especialy seen as i only bought it for £75!!! (staff discount and other things on top).
However. Someone desided to pitch their tent up at 2200 hrs, right when the wind was worsening further. This tent was a Terra Nova Hyperspace, it came hurtling at my tent and the poles went through my flysheet.
He promised me he would leave his details so that i could get it fixed and he would pay but in the morning he had gone. Not supprised considering he had his kids with him and snow was falling, even picnic benches where begining to move.
So now i have to claim on my RAF insurance to get a new one.
My question is, what tent is the toughest 4 season tent in the world around the styles of the Mountain Hardware Trango 2 and the Terra Nova Quasar, money is around £300-£550 and i would like it an a bright colour like orange! (like bright tents).
Thanks very much.....
