For a few weeks now, I want to go in the wild alone, without my peanut.
When I say without her, it’s not because I’m mad at her, just because she has a lot of work for UNI, and if I want to continue to discover England, I have to walk alone for the next 2 months.
After that, she’ll enjoy the mud taste with me ;).
I was looking for the perfect tent :
At first, I was looking for a one person tent. And I found this one :
Gelert Solo Tent (website)
Very cheap (you can find it for less than £30), good on the paper (at least good for summer).
Because of it price, I was sure my peanut would be happy :P
But she reminded me that we were preparing a 4 days walk together in the Lake District, at the end of August, so buying a 1 person tent wasn’t a good idea.
I was then looking for a 2 persons tent, with the same features : Lightweight and Good Value
My 2 choices were :
On the paper, there are similar. 2-3 Seasons tents, nearly same weight, just a 4000 mm HH for the Coleman instead of 3000 mm for the Vango.
But … the Coleman tent seemed to be more spacious, and had a 105 Cm head … perfect for my tall peanut. And to be honest, she is more gorgeous …
So let’s have the Coleman … ordering on the Internet is so easy :P
The last website to have the coleman avior X2 in stock was Penroseoutdoor.
I received my tent 2 days after my order, a quick test in the garden :
- Very easy to pitch up
- Looks very good for 2 (well, you have to be a 2 couple, not friends ;))
- Very light
I’ll post photos after my walk this week around Bourton-On-The-Water.
By the way, Penroseoutdoor is very good merchant, responded to my email quickly, and my order arrived very quickly. Not like other outdoor merchants I’ve already tested.
