    Copies of MSR in some models, but I wouldn't want the risk of it breaking / leaking / zip breaking down on the first couple of days into a week trip on the west coast.

    I have an exped Venus II It's a beautifully made tent very easy to use and lots of good features. Freestanding, fly first erection (good in the rain) Only thing it weighs a bit 3.1 kg with everything including a shit load of stakes. It has a 10,000 mm floor so no footprint needed mind you. Room for two and a vestibule each.

    Don’t have an exped tent, but own a fair bit of their other gear and so far very impressed - very well thought out.

    turns out the exped I want isn't available in NZ anymore, so would have to buy overseas and bring it in, or choose another brand. Option B is Terra Nova southern cross 1

    Terra Nova are the business, I have a solar competition and it's had all sorts of abuse but still going strong, pretty impressive for a 1kg tent

    Your feet hang out the back....hardly ideal for a tent

    I will be sleeping with my appendages well and truly inside my tent around any dodgy north islanders in the future

    I have a 3 and a 2 man 3F UL tent, copy of the MSR hubba hubba and it seems pretty good so far.
    Zips have all held up and seams seem great.
    I had a macpack Olympus before these and they are not quite the same build quality but for $150 you can't really go wrong.
    Was thinking of getting one of the nature hike tents to compare to them, but haven't yet

    I have the same and agree except there is no agent in NZ now so no back up service. I have had a pole break on mine and it went through the fly and Terra Nova in UK don't want to know anything about it. Shame.

    Have replaced it with a MSR Hubba NX Solo 1 for USD245 and will get the Terra Nova fixed by someone local.
