Yes another tent topic but I wanted to get opinions on double vs single wall tents for high country hunting.
The time has come for me at least to really look at what worked or did not and think how I could shed some weight from a pack.
First I'm looking at shelter, took a 5 pound 2 man this year, worked great, but heavy for the 46SF it gives you, we had tons of rain and it did get a bit damp inside.
What I was thinking of was going to a single wall for weight savings, get more volume inside (2 people) and be able to vent better, more of a function od design than anything
I'm looking at them all but the golite shangrila 3 looks good, I don't know how it would do in high winds (anyone with experience) but it seems like you can get a lightweight large shelter at right about 3lbs,,,,,yes I will have a floor, which will add weight but I'm thinking a different howbrew floor from a lighter fabric will still put me under 4
I like the warmlites too, they are similar to the helldiberg (SP?) and the bibler tents, they seem like they would do better in the wind.
Past shelter I'm looking at sleep systems and really looking at the big anges type systems, with a insulated pad and a blanket of sorts for the bag...........actually looking a some quilt type bags and other lighter weight insulated pads, I'll test this one in great lengths in the backyard before hitting the high country with it, I've had zero experience with them
Past that, did save a full pound sewing up my own pack for my barney's frame, no does not have all the features of the barneys pack but the same size and at least a pound less, need to get all my buckles on it for a final weigh in.
Getting side tracked but thats where I'm at right now,,,,,would love to hear about pro and cons of the single vs double wall tent though,,,,and how teepe style tents do in high wind?
