An item I ran across recently is the new Nemo Obi Elite 1P one man tent that weighs only 2 lbs. 7 oz. and is 6 x 6 inches when packed in it's waterproof quasi-compression stuffsack: NEMO: Tents including camping and mountaineering tents from NEMO
I'll be checking this out more carefully in the near future, but as far as I can tell, it's the lightest 3 season, 1 man tent on the market and it's floor is 39" wide! And, it has a 9 sq. ft. vestibule--so there's plenty of room in the tent for you and a long, long range rifle and room in the vestibule for your pack.
That's huge for one man and makes it even more amazing to be as light as it is. Check out other manufactures one man tents and you won't see too many that even approach this weight, especially at this size. Now, is uses alot of 10 denier and 20 denier PU coated nylon to be as light as it is and this definietly makes it a bit more fragile than some other designs that use tougher, but heavier fabric. But, this seems like a great product for the solo backpack wilderness hunter in late spring/summer/fall.
I hope to be using it on my solo wilderness deer and bear hunts in late summer/early fall this year.
I've got a Nemo Gogo bivvy (anyone want to buy it?--it's only been slept in 2x) but doesn't have the room to store gear. I'd much rather wait out a storm in a one man tent than bivvy. If you've waited out a storm in a bivvy, you know what I mean.
