Force ten Argon 2

    Depends on your intended use. If you want a good quality lightweight tent then I think its great. There's a trade off with the lightweight side in that the materials particularly the groundsheet won't take the same abuse as a tent made to the same quality using heavier grade materials. But with a bit of care you don't need to give a tent abuse.

    1.8kgs is very light and you have a good design that can be pitched flysheet first and can even stay up without pegs.

    The only downside I can see is that while the poles are very strong anyone falling over the tent can damage them beyond local repair. So probably not an ideal tent for a music festival unless you are a posh hipster kid from Central London.

    It comes down to weight and the depth of your pockets.
    If you need a lightweight tent then its probably very good, myself I have a Vango 300 which cost €50 for slightly more space and weight and less quality.
    Have a look at the German sites for tents they are very reasonable for quality tents.
    The silicone ones here are very waterproof.
