    Slumit Cub 2 or Gobi 3. Quick erect/pack, I've only used it for two years now so can't comment on heavy, continuous use - will find out this summer when I take it on a longer jaunt.

    They're ridiculously quick to put up/down, but a bit long when packed. Fits in a dry bag I have across the seat and is narrower than the panniers, but no good if you want to stuff it in a pannier. I have the Cub 2 and it's great, but I think I will get something with a useable porch/sitting area like a Tasman 3 or the equivalent Vango etc...

    I like the idea of having a Khyam Igloo but not done research on pack size etc.

    Decathlon Quechua - £79 for the two man. Amazing quality for the price and packs down very small, easily fitting in the exhaust side vario pannier along with a sleeping bag, assorted bits n bobs and a pillow. Works in torrential rain! I looked at all of the major brands before deciding on this one and found that you had to pay three times the price to get even close. Plus only five mins to pitch.

    I have recently bought the slumit cub 2 that I'll be using for a Scotland trip in May, it seems very good as long as you are happy with it on the back seat.. It is a bit short inside though, but most tents I looked at were.. I got it for under £60 posted.
