Article Summary:One of the lightest tents for a given surface area, the Dancing Light Gear Ultralight Brawny Tarptent warrants serious attention as a solo shelter for certain conditions. Appalachian Trail through-hikers and others that enjoy three season backpacking below the treeline will love the Ultralight Brawny Tarptent's weight, ease of pitching in the rain, and simplicity. The tent is not without its flaws, of course, and backpackers venturing into more severe climatic conditions may question its stability, stormworthiness, and condensation resistance. We put the tent to the test in high winds, heavy rain, and enough snow to see it flatten. This review discusses its key features, including: detailed specifications and photos, ease of setup, usable features/options, weight and sizing, flexibility of pitching, usable space, and field observations related to stability, storm protection, ventilation, condensation resistance, insect protection, durability. In addition, comments about the tent's value and recommendations for improvement are provided.
