Forum rules
Market topic titles should begin with abbreviated state and location enclosed in square brackets where appropriate, followed by brief item description. Eg [TAS Hbt] Exped UL7 Mat or [NSW Syd Post Aus] Scarpa SL US43

Lost Property topic titles should begin with either [LOST] or [FOUND] and should include the State and/or location and the item description. Eg, [LOST] TAS, Head Torch, Crater Lake.

For Sale topics should be advertising only one item, with seven new topics per person per week permitted to encourage this (eg. One topic for selling a sleeping bag, and a second topic for a back pack).

Bushwalking related topics only please, this is not eBay or Gumtree. If your item for sale is also advertised elsewhere you are encouraged to post the link to it in your topic. No commercial posts are allowed - private sales only.

When your topic is resolved / no longer needed, you are required to:
(a) post, to indicate that the item is sold - preferably by editing the title of the topic (edit the first post) and put a [SOLD] in front of the title;
(b) lock your topic using the popup menu and button at the bottom right of the topic page. You cannot lock other people's topics, and only moderators can unlock topics.
If you need help with the above, you may report your own post asking for assistance.

For Sale / Wanted topics will expire after 3 months if there are no replies by the OP (original poster) in that time.
Lost / Found topics will expire after 6 months if there are no replies by the OP in that time.
Locked and expired topics will be moved to the "Sold, Claimed and closed" sub-forum by the moderation team, contact a moderator if you wish to have a topic restored.

Hi folks,
Chasing a small 1 person tent. Something like a Nemo Hornet, Hille Enan or MSR Hubba would be ace.

Packed size is more of a consideration than weight, ideally I'd like the inner and fly to fit into a 5L dry sack. It'll be predominantly used for cycle touring so nothing that uses trekking poles please.

I'm located in the Blue Mountains but head into the CBD on a semi regularly. Happy to pay for postage for the right tent. Thanks guys and gals.

Sorry I don't have anything for you except a review.
I recently aquired a Big Sky Chinook 1, and rate it rather highly, especially if livable space and two vestibules are important to you.

High build quality, huge internal room, pockets, good zips, light, and sturdier with the 3rd pole than my previous Hubba HP. Isla de Navarino, Patagonia tested.

I don't often review publicly, and I have no commercial connection, but I actually bought the winter inner also to have the best of Tassie experiences. One caveat- non existent service from the States site, and limited but friendly from BPL.

And if not the Chinook, perhaps a lighter model.

Best of luck with your choice

This is a nice light and compact tent. https://www.wildearth.com.au/buy/vango- ... FTE-HEL2-M
Packs down to 45cm x 16cm diameter and weighs 1.4kg. I have no affiliation with Wildearth but I do own one of these.
As a side note sleeping 2 in this tent would be only suit a couple of very friendly people.

Big Anes Copper Spur is just under a kg and packs small for a double skin tent:
currently on sale but still pretty expensive:
