Summer is comin', allegedly, so it's time to bugproof this year's tent. My current favourite is the Golite Hut 1. It starts out at a svelte 17oz, which for a storm worthy tent is pretty good. But you need a groundsheet of some kind, ok polycro will do, but if you want your inflating pad safe from gravel and pine needles, Tyvek is a better bet. Add in some no see-um and a bit of help at the sewing machine from my lady Kath and here we have it:
Weight has increased a reasonably thrifty 209g or 7.3oz. I'm using a 2oz carbon fibre golf club shaft at 47" for the front pole, and a 1/2oz carbon fibre fishing rod section for the rear. This makes the tent high enough for me and Kath to sit up together while we cook. I like being able to cook away from the mozzies. :-)
In windier conditions or heavy rain, I can just angle the pole over and drop the tent about 6" at the front in a minute or so.
