I am after any advice on which tent people would recommend for ease and quickness of putting up after a day in the saddle? One that erected itself would be ideal of course! Any advice is appreciated- sorry a tent for solo touring is what i am after.
The only truely self erecting tent is those sold originally by Decathlon (and now by everyone) which have a couple of spring loaded hoops. They really do work, but are too cumbersome to carry on a bike.
What sort of budget do you have? There's a huge price variation.
It's simple to get up(2 mins) and easy to pack down (4 mins) it weighs just 2kg and sleeps two. It is a dual skin pitch as one (or you can detacth the inner if you wanted to for some reason). I am happy with it...it proved it's metal recently on my tour where it was exposed to some very strong winds and heavy rain. It packs down small enough...I carry it inside the pannier.
