    Advice on Ultralight tents (Seek Outside, Z packs, Hyperlite Mountain

    Looking at changing my tent setup this year. Does anyone have experience with any of the following?

    Seek Outside Eolus/Eolus UL

    Seek Outside Lil' Bug Out

    Seek Outside Cimarron UL

    Z packs Duplex

    Hyperlite Mountain Gear Ultamid 2

    I mainly do backcountry hike-in hunts and am looking to drop some weight off my pack. Any other UL suggestions are welcome.

    Tough to get but titanium goat was one the best options a few years ago, you can also look at oware tents, lucus gear, some might also know other options.

    Main hunting buddy has a TiGoat 6.5, I have a Cimarron. The Cimarron weighs less and has more usable space, and is easier to pitch properly.

    The Cimarron replaced my MSR Hubba Hubba’s (one HP, one NX). The weights are similar but the amount of usable space doesn’t even compare. The Cimarron is a fantastic shelter.

    Ive been using a Six Moon Design - Haven.
    Floorless, trekking poles supported. Very similar to the Seek Eolus your looking at.
    Weights a pound.

    Would you use the cimmaron on an alpine sheep hunt in August? I have a cimmaron and a BA Copper spur ul1. My partner has a ul 2.
    we are debating wether or not to use both tents or just go with the cimmaron. I haven’t use either one yet but have a Kifaru six man that I use for base camp and it performed nicely last year on the September Snowmaggeden last year.

    I had a floorless shelter last year for august sheep hunt. I’m buying a shelter with a floor for this year.

    I have a Z-pack 3 person, super light, translucent spectra, indestructible, bit wobbly in wind, ( I have the carbon poles) needs to be well tied down. not much insulation when it gets cold, you are loosing 5-10 degree Celsius to a double wall tent. Unbeatable weight 670 gr for a 3-man with very generous space for 2. Used it for summer hikes in the yukon and on the Island.
    The 375 Ruger was improved the day it was necked down to 9.3 mm

    Why is that? Just curious what your reasoning is as I debated both and ended up going with a floor.
