    Our Scout Troop has two Go Lite shelters for 6 and 5 persons respectively. We need another. Looking at the Tarptent Hogback. Other suggestions?

    Oware may have something that would suit your needs.  Not a “tent”, but a 10′ x 14′ tarp w/perimeter netting.  Says the 30d weighs in at 2 lb 15oz.

    Eureka Timberline has been a classic for Scouts.  Eureka also has other tents that hold 3-5 people.

    Others companies include Seek Outside, REI, Big Agnes, Lite Outdoors Plateau, Luxe Octopeak,

    The only 4-person “tent” I remember GoLite making was the shangra-la 5 which was a pyramid tarp.  That was my goto shelter for a large number of kids and I though worked great though it has a huge footprint.  There are several companies which are still making 4+ person pyramid / tipis such as Mountain Laurel Designs and Seek Outdoors, maybe OWare, and numerous companies that used to make them that you might be able to find used but good conditions including GoLite/MyTrailCo, Black Diamond and MSR.

    Titanium Goat used to have tipis as well but I suppose they’re no longer in business.  Another used option?

    Locus Gear makes a version of the old MLD Circus Tent.   The footprint would be huge but I think it slept 8.

    Not sure if they are still in business, but McDane Tents makes awesome large shelters.
