Nemo Equipment Inc.'s original Spike tent is a common choice for ultralight adventurers, but the Spike Storm takes it to a new level. This tent adds a floor and a mesh door to the original trekking-pole tent, making it that much more protective and stable. It's still minimalist, packing into its included stuff sack and adding just over a pound to your pack, but it has features that make what could feel like a shack feel like a palace. Its body is treated with silicone to ensure that water will roll off if you get caught in a shower and to extend its ability to stand up to wear and tear. Speaking of standing up, this tent sets up easily with a trekking pole (not included) nestled into its Pole Pocket--which is reinforced to ensure a solid grip. The vestibule provides plenty of space to store any gear you don't feel like snuggling throughout the night, and the tapered design allows for motion inside the tent without requiring you to carry around weight you don't need.
