    Theres lots of bivvies/ovals for around/under the 100 pound mark.

    JRC stealth for 100, and domes for 80ish.

    for those that read the post incorrectly, he wants a shelter for 2 people, costing under 100.

    and my opinion, for what it's worth, is for that money you'll get one that will take 30 mins to set up, will be a nightmare in the wind and will take two of you to erect.

    There is no such thing as cheap and good, despite what people tell you.
    If a product is cheap, then it's either of inferior quality/design, or it's stolen.



    (cue tight arsed northerners telling everone that Okumas are as good as Shimano...... yawn...)
