    Hi all!

    I'm just getting started with the outdoors thing and am looking to buy some gear on a budget. At the moment, I'm in the market for a 2/3 berth tent. It needs to be small/light enough for backpacking, but won't be doing any high altitude wild camping yet so no real need to go O.T.T.

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers,

    Dave

    There is a huge choice, budget will normally narrow that down so a starter for 10 might be in order here Dave - how much do you think?

    Wasn't sure how much I should be spending as a "Newbie", used to just camp under a poncho with bungee cord back in the day! Around 50 ?

    Budget is a narrowing factor but from the needs you describe so far Vango probably have something to suit your needs.
