    slumit cub 2

    just returned from a quick trip through France , Switzerland camping and I was very impressed with the tent I bought ,which was the slumit cub 2
    the ease /speed which it went up and packed away was great ,while my mate was doing the usual threading the poles through the pockets in his
    dome tent mine was up and had all the gear in it although its not small enough to fit in a pannier ,it strapped to the back seat and was not too big to cause problems getting on or off the bike .
    I would also mention the Wunderlich handlebar bag i purchased from nippy normans ,I had my doubts about this item as I thought i should have just bought a tankbag but in using it for the tolls /checking it for the eurotunnel it was great and would recommend one to anyone .

    That looks a good bit of kit. I'm also for quick pitching tents when touring. It's the way forward.
    The Slumit Cub 2 has an impressive packed size for a quick pitch. It's now on my radar for next year if I don't get along with my new tent.

    I've just bought one of these....

    It's a little long when packed, but doesn't exceed the width of my panniers when strapped across. Bargain price at the moment.

    Had my eye on this tent for a while, but the thing stopping me is the length of the sleeping area seems too short, 2000mm.. The tents that I've shop tested seem too short and they are 10 or 20cm longer that the slumit, my head and/or feet seem very close to the ends, and that's without the extra height of my sleeping cot and air mat.. Did it cause any problems for you? I'm 6ft..
