    Hi everyone. I was looking at a suitable tent for 4 season camping and found the F10 Nitro 200.
    Looks like they are no longer being made, and I cannot for the life of me find one for sale online - new or 2nd hand. Just wondered if anyone knew of any decent alternatives.
    Great tent at the weight - 1.4kg and I ideally want a 2 pole tunnel tent for the inside space.
    Cheers everyone

    Have you ruled out its replacement the Xenon as being too heavy?

    No Robin - is it any good? Same tent newer version?

    The 1.4 kg quoted is no pegs or repair kit (mine is actually 1.463kg). The equivalent for the Xenon is 1.64g. The Xenon has a different fly material (I think). The Nitro fly deteriorated after a few years and became sticky. F10 replaced mine but it suffered the same problem after a while so I gave up. It’s a great design and hopefully the Xenon doesn’t have the same problem. The Xenon has more pockets but is pretty similar.

    1.64kg is pretty good for a 4 season tent.

    That looks a bargain.

    I've bought off that guy a couple of times when he was on OM as Snowden Ranger. Both immaculate, like shop new. Also helped me a couple of years later return one for a manufacturer warranty claim.
