I think it's about time to upgrade from my little $5 dome tent to something that's a little bit longer lasting and durable, It's still holding up very well but seeing that a few local camping stores have sales on at the moment, I feel the need to grab a bargain.
I want to know your opinion on which is the better option for weekend trips for a young couple. My criteria is, very quick and easy to setup and putdown, wind, water and basically storm proof, warm in winter, cool in summer.
I like the OzTrail Mitchell double swag, my girlfriend likes the OzTrail Tourer9 tent, They are similarly priced which is making my decision harder. Both are just as easy to setup and store, but each has it's pro's and cons. I don't like the centre pole that comes with a Tourer tent, but they are giving away the side pole kit. My main concern with a swag is that it may let in a bit of water if it's bucketting down, or worse, waking up in a puddle. But they are easier and more convenient to live with.
I've always been a tent sort of guy but for convenience sake I wouldn't mind a good 'ol swag.
what are your thoughts?
