The Vaude Ferret 1 Ultralight is a two-person tent that is tunnel-type, double-wall, lightweight (not ultralight), and is not freestanding. Its use of lightweight fabrics to reduce weight is offset somewhat by the use of heavier than needed webbing and connectors. Still, at a little over 4 pounds (1.92 kg), the Ferret provides a lot of space plus a few extras for its weight, although ingress without moisture transfer in wet weather is difficult.
