    I use a single wall 4-season tent (Integral Designs MK 2 Lite). Bomber shelter, and weighs less than 5 lbs.

    I'm not sure what you would call this thing, a tipi or a tent but it has worked well for me the last few years

    This is my go to tent currently I really like how well it holds up and the large vestibule is very nice. I use a chunk of Tyvec for under it.

    I have been using tarps with an inner shell of those insulated reflective survival blankets. I have 2 army wool blankets for ground cover which protect against conduction.

    We use an Asolo hawk for the rainy season, a basha/ bivie for the times we are mobile (i.e. mountain hunting), and make a lean-to when winter hunting.
    The Asolo is a light three person/three season tent which seems to hold up in bad conditions. Had it for ten years and still going strong. weighs about 4 pounds all in. We split it up between us and barely notice it's there.
