Miltec by Sturm of Germany one-man (berth) tent:



This was given to me as a gift and I really like it. It's small, light, and packs down in my backpack just fine. Gives me a little more room than a bivy sack and is very well made. I have not seen any others here in the U.S. yet, but they are offered online.

I do not like the fiberglass poles (past experiences) or cheap wire stakes it came with, but both have held up pretty well so far. I have used it off and on for about eight years now. Mine (pictured) is an OD Green, but these can be found in Coyote, Woodland ,and the German "Flectarn" camo pattern.

Coolest thing is the webbing for the poles and the small vestibule location. They show European ingenuity at its best. I have been in a few storms and some fairly bad weather with this tent and the only issue was not being able to close off all the mesh vents. It got cold one night and I wish I could have sealed it off. Cool design and not something you will see often.
