Hi all. I'm looking for advice on a tent to get for an upcoming trip to Patagonia. I'll be spending a bit over a week hiking through the region so I'm looking for a managably light shelter, but I've read about the near-constant high winds down there, and possible rain, so I want to be prepared with something that can stand up to a beating if need be.
Can anyone here speak from experience? I'm looking for a two person tent. I've cruised the reviews, and they are helpful, but most tents are rated with 4-5 stars, so that makes it a bit hard to narrow down.
also, I'm trying to keep the price reasonable. I probably won't spring $800 for the FitzRoy.
