Lightweight tent for the burner express

Post by nic++ » Mon Aug 05, 2019 9:19 am

I'm coming by the burner express, so I need a tent that I can fit in a backpack.

Do you have any recommendations? Should I avoid anything with mesh?
Should fit one person + gear, will have shade structure.

Virgin burner. Not looking for a DIY solution 🙂

Convential wisdom is minimum size for one person + gear is a four man tent which I agree with. Tents get smaller every year.
Avoiding mesh is difficult you will probably have to cover mesh. Check 4 season or winter or mountaineering tents. My REI 4 man tent weighs 7 pounds including poles etc. but REI no longer makes it.
