The ultralight backpacking community is fortunate to have both Six Moon Designs and Tarptent. With each new model, Ron Moak of Six Moon Designs and Henry Shires of Tarptent vie for the title of best ultralight single-walled shelter. The competition has halved the weight of a traditional two-person tent and saved most of us a couple of pounds without sacrificing weather protection or comfort.
