Here’s a little secret – or confession, rather – I have not camped nearly as much as I want to. In reality, I’ve only been on a couple camping trips lately – I now live so close to the mountains that I often hike in, its hard to turn down that short drive home and a warm bed after a long hike. I am hoping to change that this year, and stay more nights out in the wild!
For the few camping trips that I have done, I have used the extremely portable and leightweight Big Agnes single person tent. Its big on versatility and size, but small in its footprint.
The entire system weights just over a pound and a half, and compresses into a package a little slimmer than a 2 liter bottle, easily coming along in my backpack.
