Last years sheep hunt went pretty good, had our high camp we kept hunting out of, and returning to in the evening. That camp consisted of a lightweight 3-man
Some nights we found ourselves 4 miles or more from camp at times. Trying to get smarter about this and figure we can basically save ourselves 8 miles or so by just setting up shop away from camp.
So, initially looked at just the bag type bivy's. (they run about a pound) Decent option, but really wonder how they would do in a downpour, then started thing about a small sil tarp and the bag bivys. Think this is getting you pretty close, and more protected, but adding weight
Then there are the bivys that are somewhat freestanding, marmot make one, so does North Face. The run about 2 pounds.
Then comes the ultralight 1 mans, best I've found (within some kind of budget) is the Big Anges 1 mans. Right at 2 pounds as well.
Just trying to pick peoples brain, about what has worked for you in the past or specific products out there I'm not mentioning. Ideally would love to find something that affords good weather protection for a couple nights out, and keeping weight between 1-2 pounds,,,,,,,less is always better
