I am lusting after this tent from Sea to Summit. It weighs 22-29 ounces and is about the size of a water bottle.
The worst part of camping for me is dragging all the gear around, so this tent is appealing. It uses ultralight aluminum poles and comes in two sizes, both of which fold up to the size of a Nalgene water bottle.
The downside is that the tent costs $429. My current tent cost about $30, which is about as much money as I’m willing to invest in camping equipment, but if I were about to take a serious backpacking trip, I’d definitely consider this tent. [Gizmodo]
