sean, im seeing people saying get a 4 season tent in this thread. i do NOT recomend it for the OP. get a three season. 4 season tents to not breath nearly as well and you WILL wake up to lots of condensation in ur tent, esp on a humid night. If you are planning on doing any ski touring or alpine climbing, a four season tent is a reasonable investment, but please do not get one for camping out on the hoh! again, i promise im not stearing u wrong here, but u want a cheap synthetic bag (0 degrees) and maybe a couple army surplus wool blankets as for a tent look for something that a) fits ur cot and b) isnt to expensive. the rain fly should provide 100 percent coverage as well! this is important as many cheap tents have rain flys that just dont cut it! Also, if ur gonna basecamp in the olympics your seriously gonna want a couple nice tarps to hang over ur living area. itll make ur life 100 percent better.
