Re: Backcountry shelter

Sorry for highjacking, but I figured id ask this here instead of starting a similar thread.

What are you guys thoughts on the Zpacks hexamid tent? It looks to be extremely lightweight and waterproof, but how well does it hold up in the wind? are there any lighter/better options out there?

If I'm alone I use my 2-man Sierra Designs Lightening tent. With another person I like the Marmot Limelight 3P. It has two doors and two vestibules so each guy has plenty of space under their own vestibule for gear, rifle/bow and boots. With 3 people there is plenty to share the load and we use my Cabela's Expedition 4-person 4-season tent.

Re: Backcountry shelter

I've been using an Easton Kilo 1 person this summer on backpacking trips and plan to use it for hunting this year. So far i mostly like it. Its nice and light and gives me enough room. But when you have a tent that weighs less than 2 lbs there are always trade offs. If its a rainy day a small tent sucks so carry a tarp if rain is forecasted.

I use a Hilleberg Nallo 3 for all my sheep and goat hunts all the way through october. its proven to be bomb prove for me so far, although tunnel tents in the end won't be as strong as a dome/freestanding style.

Re: Backcountry shelter

Hmmm... Pretty generic question. I have around 10 different "shelters" for different applications. First question; snakes?
