Morning boys and girls!

I'm going camping next weekend and need to buy a tent. Rather than buying a really cheap disposable one I thought about getting an average tent so I can use it next year when (hopefully!)travelling around Europe or NZ as part of a RTW. Would save a lot of money on hostels!

I've been looking at 2 man tents costing around £40/ £50 and found 2 which look quite steady.

Here they are:

Tent 1: http://www.yeomansoutdoors.co.uk/products.asp?recnumber=760
Tent 2: http://www.yeomansoutdoors.co.uk/products.asp?recnumber=762

The problem is I just can't decide! I love the girly factor of tent 2 but tent 1 seems to be bigger, not as heavy and packs to a smaller size. My question is whether this would make it less steady...

What do you reckon? Should I go for 1, 2 or none? Any input will be very much appreciated! :)

Go for the lighter one.

You'll thank me when you start lugging a heavy tent all over for your rtw trip! ;)
