A lot of designers are moving to add lightweight options in their double-wall tent line-ups. Some have so many advantages and low weights that they may challenge the benefit of choosing a single-wall shelter!
The Sierra Designs Vapor Light 2 has the lowest trail weight of all the company’s two-person double-wall tents at 3.44 pounds (1.56 kg). An interesting pole design adds room to make it more livable inside. Will the Vapor Light be one we want to share, or will it turn out to be Vapor Ware?
The Sierra Designs LT Strike 2 uses a radical pole design to make a roomy two-person tent, but does condensation leave us all wet?
While not the lightest of tents, this shelter can handle such a wide range of multi-tasking to make it worth a closer look.
With the 2.47-lb (1.12-kg) Laser, Terra Nova takes aim at the lightweight backpacker that wants to travel in comfort. Will the Laser hit the bull’s eye, or will we just be blinded by the light?
With new fabrics, a strong design and plenty of pitching options, the HP is quite attractive. Will this relatively lightweight double-wall abode have us exclaiming with enthusiasm or will we hurry on to the next cutie?
There’s a lot of bang for the buck in this roomy, lightweight, double-wall tent!
Lowrance adds touchscreen functionality with its top of the line Sierra GPS. With a plethora of multimedia options, it comes across as more entertainment device than a dedicated navigational aid. How does it work for backpacking?
