    Re: Maybe its time for a tent.

    I put the end of my sleeping bag in a garbage bag to keep from condensation getting it wet. As stated above some of these ultra light tents are extremely small.

    I do like the idea of a backpack stove and shelter. I'll have to look into this.

    A 4-man or even Cimarron would probably work for that. Smaller and lighter. But if you don't need to haul it in, the extra space'll be nice.

    Re: Maybe its time for a tent.

    So just to bring this one back and let everyone know where i ended up. A friend of mine who is also a member here found some tents from China that were getting stellar reviews with the hiking community. So for the price i couldn't resist. They are from Ali Express i got 2 tents for way less money than one name brand. I got what is called a flames creed 3 man teepee and a 3f ul which is a one man ultalight tent that is probably best suited for scouting ad early season. These tents are very high quality! I tried the teepee out last weekend in the snow for 3 days. Its great. No complaints. Just wanted to let you guys know their is an affordable option available.

    Just one of my hiking poles. The teepee came with a pole extension but it didn't work with my style of pole so i just cut a stick the length i needed. In the future i will adjust the extension that was supplied to make it work.

    May be a good alternative to something like a Cimarron - get a stove jack installed and you're set.

    I have 4 hard seasons on the MSR HH NX, 4lb 7oz, tent, fly, foot print, poles and pegs. Would highly recommend.

    You should do a review on this and post it up with some pics and pros/cons

    The Chinese have become great at copying existing designs and making some good products. I'm not as reluctant to try Chinese stuff as I once used to be.
