A lightweight backpacking tent with amazing amounts of internal space.

Big Sky International says:

2 Person, freestanding, double wall tent with SuprSil™-UL fabric, nylon PU coated and seam taped floor, mesh Netting interior, and Ultra Light weight aluminum poles.

When we first put up Big Sky International's Soul 2 Person Tent we found it a bit fiddly, the inner and flysheet come attached by a clip in each corner (many people like it when inner and outer are attached as it potentially stops rain from getting to your inner tent, when in reality this isn't an issue). Whilst they are attached to each other, the clips you need to get to for the poles are on the inner tent, making it hard to reach them and far from ideal. The second time we put it up was easier and we can see it becoming easier with each attempt. What we definitely would do though, is detach the outer from the inner and fasten it on afterwards.

The tent itself has enormous amounts of space inside. Lying down, someone over 6 feet had plenty of room above their head and for their feet. The walls of the tent are near vertical and go up to a great height where, again, someone of over 6 feet had around 6-7 inches of extra headroom.

There are some definite fair-weather design features such as the high cut of the flysheet at the floor and the way the door opens above the inner tent floor potentially allowing rain straight in. These are there because Big Sky are a US brand and these are all typical design traits of american tents. There are some really genius design features too such as the overhang of the fly sheet over the zip opening of the door. This creates an area that you can keep open to create a huge vent with a velcro stick that holds the opening open (hard to describe in words on a screen but very effective in reality).

This tent should be on your 'maybe' list if you're headed somewhere with pleasant weather or just plan on doing fair weather UK camping.
