MSR Fast Stash
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $200
This is the best shelter I've ever owned. I don't just use it for backpacking but use it camping or traveling and want to stay light. Can be roped to anything in many different fashions. Main disadvantages would be in heavy wind or rain (although may be OK if set up in a special way).
- Uses trek poles
- Bad in snow rain or wind
The best tent I've ever owned. See summary.
Where to Buy
This versatile, ultralight shelter offers full protection and ample room in a single-wall body that pitches quickly with included poles, or trekking poles for added weight efficiency.
A front porch and adjustable side wings add external coverage and allow maximum ventilation in a broad spectrum of weather conditions. To stash gear for a day hike, poles can be pulled out to collapse shelter but re-pitched easily.
