    Can anyone recommend lightweight tents for a LEJOG tour.


    Dont want a fancy tent, tbh if it only last for the one trip that is all we need.

    We are doing LEJOG in june and are after either a 4man or 2 2man tents

    Weight, fully packed dimensions and price all need to be low. Quality doesnt need to be great as long as it will do the job for 10 - 14 days.

    Thanks for your tips in advance all!

    I think that you will find some good advice on 2x2 vs 4 on this thread, and some good recommendations there and on this thread. :blush:

    That 2 man tent is still too much to be honest.


    I was thinking of something like this:

    Seriously! Its lightweight, pop up, and has the guide wires etc for support. I presume its waterproof lol..... Surely this will do for approx 8 nights in June? (were staying in friends family for the other 2 days).


    Does anyone have one of these, surely it will do the job? We're young 21 year olds so are not after a portable palace lol!

    It'll be far too big to go on a rack. It's a circle with 68cm diameter.

    They could always use it as a sail when the winds behind them :sad:

    You said yourself fully packed dimensions need to be low as did the weight and price

    Small ~ Lightweight and cheap do not go together
