    Default Camping portable tents?

    For those camping enthusiasts, wondering where do u guys get ur camping equipments?

    I'm looking at those quick, collapsable types where you won't need to hammer pegs like a SAF Basha.

    Anyone knows where to get those?

    If the wind is really strong then you'll have to peg it onto the ground...I have seen even SAF tentage got blown away by wind before

    I have a 4 men tent can lend to you for free...or you can even keep it...PM me if you want at least can put to some good use, have been sitting inside the store for years. Don't think I'll ever use it, prefer to stay in hotel now

    you'll need to peg those "instant tents" to the ground still. else the tent will still move when blown.

    Thnx, thnx. But weight is part of my concern plus since its gonna be a one-man trip, a 4-man tentage is probably gonna be overkill.

    oh, actually although its stated a 4 men tent, in my opinion its more a two person tent. Just nice for a rendezvous taking into consideration some flipping and turning action

    Anyway, my offer is still open

    The only person flipping and turning would be me in the 4-men tent.
