So I have been looking for a new solo tent for some time. My current favorite has been an MSR Missing Link, which is a very spacious two person tent, and weighs 3 pounds. Unless I am above tree line I like simple, single wall tents. I also don't see a need to carry tent poles for those situations, when I carry hiking poles. I ordered a Tent Tarp Contrail and it is just pimp. I set it up in the backyard and it is a design masterpiece. It is very spacious for a one-person, and the peak height is 115cm, which is huge. There is enough room inside for both my dog and I. Total weight - 1.5 pounds. I haven't weighed this in with my overall backpacking kit, with everything minus food & water - should be in the 12 pound range. Google Tent Tarp and you will find all kinds of info. They are sewn in Seattle at a great manufacturing facility.
