Sorry, but they don't seem to cut the mustard with me.

I prefer something enclosed, with mossie net. So I'd like something lightweight, two layer, mesh inner door so I can open the outer on a warm night and to let the air in and not the sandflies. And a large enough vestibule to put 2 packs in.

I have a outerlimits starlight 2 - "2man" tent and it's practical only for 1 person and pack, and even then I wouldn't really bring the pack in if it was wet.

So something like the Marmot earlylight, upper range of the Vaude brand or the MSR Hubba at twice the price would be ideal (but not cheap).

+1 for the MSR. I have a Hubba Hubba (not HP though). Great tent, light, easy to put up, good options as far as setup (whole tent, fly with footprint only etc). Very good in the wind, and from my limited experience so far, in the rain as well. Can get them for a good price out if the US if you can locate a seller that will ship to NZ.

Fairydown Altimate!  Not made new anymore - troll Trademe for one.  Got mine for $300 after it being used 6 times in camping grounds  Grin
  

For some of us, the call to hunt is deep in our genes. It's there, and those that don't have it will never know the deep and profound impact is has upon those of us who do. Keith Draper.

I have a Kathmandu tent (mountain plus) have found it to be excellent, very stable(geodesic design) even in strong winds and snow.
I brought it on one of their half price sales so was good value for money.

There is also the fairydown escape, its a 2 pole tunnel design, I use it as my lower altitude tent and the plateau for the serious stuff, handles rain etc fine and is only around $300. Nice handy wee tent for use in reasonable forecasts
