Looking for a 1 or 2 person tent. As long as I can get my rucksack and my 5' self inside (and can reasonably comfortably sit up and get changed) I'll be happy. 2kg or under and a max of £100. Within a 1.5hr train ride from Glasgow would be ideal.

That said, if you're only 5ft a Blade 100 would probably do you. Just over 1kg. I'm about 6.1 and the 100 worked ok for me on the CWT.

Hi, I went for the blade originally for the height. I wanted to be able to sit up.
I had some fairly heavy showers and never had any wetness inside. If there is any condensation, the steep angle of the walls let it run away.
Although I was impressed with the 100, I've swapped to the 200 for extra space. After a week or 2, the 1 man gets pretty cramped for a big guy. The lighter weight was necessary for the CWT though...
If it's only its only your 'short' self, I'd definitely go for the 100. Don't try to squeeze anyone else in though
I remember watching a video of the 100 on YouTube in strong wind!!!

Just remembered, there's another vid on YouTube showing how to set it up to pitch all in one. Keeps from getting your inner wet if it's already raining.
