The Solplex is the most functional and spacious tent at around 1 pound. It has been my #1 favorite piece of gear for several years and my treasured home for two thru-hikes, going on three. If you are seeking a truly ultralight but full-protection shelter, this is it. Conditions: I purchased my Solplex spring of 2016. I have slept in it over 100 nights and it has been in my pack the length of New Zealand’s Te Araroa, the Colorado Trail, and approximately 10 days on both the Appalachian and Florida… Full review
Bought this halfway into AT thru, changed my life. This product is a game-changer. I used a standard 1P lightweight tent for the first half of my 2016 AT thru, and because I was under budget I opted to acquire this tent for the second half. I LOVED IT! The extra space for a tiny fraction of the weight, the comfort knowing I'd always be dry in it, the ease of using my trekking poles all added to really a luxurious experience. While the first half of the AT I tended to sleep in shelters because I… Full review
Overall it is a great tent—roomy, light, and comfortable both in the desert and above 12,000 feet. Sturdy when pitched well and stands up to storms (though you will notice tiny micro-holes appearing after moderate use).

Yes—IF you plan on getting A LOT of use out of it, or if lowering your base weight is very important… Full review
This is an ultralight three-season sleeping bag (20 oz total). It works great during warmer nights unzipped and open as a quilt. It can be zipped up for colder nights. Zipped up, the fit is expectedly tight. These 900 fill bags come at a premium price. This review is about my Zpacks ultralight 900 Fill Power Goose Down Sleeping Bag - 20 deg Long. I have only used this for one summer/fall season (about 6-7 outings). When reviewing sleeping bags it always seems appropriate to note whether one is a… Full review
This tent provides amazing space and livability in an ultralight package. It provides everything tents weighing three times as much do without really sacrificing anything. Very impressive. The Zpacks duplex is a two-person single-wall cuben fiber (now Dyneema?) shelter that weighs about 22 oz (without stakes or poles—but with all guylines). The amount of room you get for a tent this light is pretty amazing. It is a two-man tent - an like most ultralight two person tents, it would be a tight fit… Full review
