Lightweight, inexpensive, solo backpacking tent. Suitable for reasonably dry hiking areas.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Low cost
  • Small size

Cons

  • Small size
  • Single wall construction
  • Fiberglass poles

This inexpensive, lightweight, single-wall tent won't keep you perfectly dry in a rainstorm, but for the minimal size and weight it is still well worth carrying.

I carried one of these on three section hikes on the PCT and it performed well even in the snow. It kept me out of the wind and the rain, although of course there isn't a whole lot of rainfall in that part of the country, so it would probably not be suitable to hiking in wetter conditions (i.e. the A.T.).

But if you want a lightweight, low-budget tent that is considerable better than a simple tube tent I would recommend it.
