The tarptent cloudburst 3 is about as heavy as I would go at 3.25 lbs. I'd rather stay at or under 3.
I'm wondering if there is really a competitor at its size. If I go smaller (I.e. The 2 man tents that require spooning for two people) I know there are tons of options. But at the large end of two or tight three there doesn't seem to be much.
I have a bunch of kids and good riding buddies, so rarely do I camp solo and getting my kids in the tent with me is important.
I've read/searched a lot here (read the entire shelters thread several times) and elsewhere and have a pretty good idea of what's out there. I just don't see anything in the three pound range in this size. What tent am I missing?
I should note this is for use here in alaska. The weather gets nasty and cold anytime of year and the bugs can be terrible. Pretty much negating the superlight tarp only type solutions.
My 9lb four season tent is killing me. Awesome in a storm but hard to drag up the climb.
