My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

If it's tight, and you can extend your poles higher, or maybe move them closer together making the peak taller, there'de be more room.

Re: My shield sunburst yellow solo pyramid
Very nice. How much does it weigh? You must use treking poles in inverted V Must have a zipper in the middle of one side?
