Nobody mentioned Salewa, have a look at

http://www.salewa.com/tents

I like the tunnel tents, because more space for all the gear and stuff

We just bought an Ontario III Base and so far it`s working fine and about half the price of a Hilleberg.

If you go camping in the southern hemisphere, no tent will last very long .... too much UV !!!

Good luck

I have camped in sub freezing temps, torrential downpours, snow, and 45mph wind in my Mountain Hardware Hammerhead 3 Tent. 86'' (7.5 feet)

I'm 6'6'' and my girlfriend (who regularly camps with me) is 5'9''

The tent is 24" long and 7'' wide when rolled (more like 26" x9" unless your a pro packer) and straps to the top of my BMW K75 original Pannier

It has two vestibules (porches/pack areas what have you) and is durable as hell.

I love it. You can find it on sale in the states for $240 online, and could probable ship it to yourself in the UK.

I don't remember whether or not I already posted it here, but just in case:

Rejka Outgear this company makes great tents for an outstanding price. I have owned one (similar to the Vanua) for the past 12 years and it is still going strong.

Just an idea. Sorry that their homepage is all in German, but it should give you at least a general idea.

Mutta Hubba for warmer climates or a Coleman Phad x2 (3 person tent)
Thats my 2 cents worth.
