Ordered this tent a while back on the internet (available for a very reasonable price) and used it for the first time at the 'Chilterns Rally'.

Pros...
• Price
• Easy and quick to pitch (see update 2)
• Good size extended porch
• Pack size and weight 3.3kg
• Didn't sag at all
• Best storage bag ever

Cons...
• Doesn't have double zips (so you can't make a window out of the door)
• Not as much height as the sister model 'Phad X2' but enough to sit up in
• Can't imagine it being as stable in bad weather as the Phad which is geodesic design
• Didn't like the supplied pegs so changed for some others I had spare

All in all I like it alot, bought just for motorcycling touring which it seems ideal for.

Update: Used this tent again at the 'Boil Rally' and I'm still very much liking it - although rain can puddle into the porch area when you unzip the door.

Update 2: The tent's not pitching as well as it first did. Really have to pull the flysheet a lot tighter on it's adjustment to keep it close(ish) to the ground. Might have to shorten the poles by half an inch.

Poles shortened (2") pitches so much better!
