About to get some light gear for the first time - a tent. Thinking about the Montbell Hexagon for 2 people for use in Scotland in Spring, Summer and Autum - any idea how good this tent is and whether it will it stand up OK in a bit of Scottish wind and rain? Are their better 2 man tent options (double-skin) around this weight and price that I should maybe consider?
