Alright, I got married in the fall, and the wife and I combined gear and are streamlining to get gear that will work better for both of us. That leaves me with three tents to downsize. None are "ultralight" but they're all decent weights for their space, considering they are from traditional manufacturers.
Mountain Hardwear Helion 2 with footprint. Minimum trailweight is 53 oz; footprint is 6.7; the whole package with stakes, bags, sacks, FP, instruction manual, etc... comes out to 67.5 if you're taking the heaviest configuration possible. Reviews for this tent are great except for the space -- MH lied like crazy on the specs, saying it's ~26 sq. ft. By my measurements, actual usable floorspace is somewhere between 19-20 sq ft. It's an awesome size for a one man tent, with or without a dog. The three pole design is totally bombproof. Weather rolls off this thing. The bathtub floor and huge amount of mesh make this a great tent, but it's just not big enough for two people to use comfortably. On the other hand, it's one of the most bomb proof and luxurious single-person tents I've ever seen.
I'm asking $200+shipping. Retail was $425 for the tent and another $45 for the footprint. It's been slept in less than one week and is in perfect condition.
Mountain Hardwear Lightpath 3 with footprint (2008 model) Trailweight is ~5.5 lbs. I don't have the exact number handy. Manufacturer specs claim minimum trail weight is 5 lbs, but I don't want to misrepresent it. This tent was purchased due to amazing reviews about it's weatherproofness. It's a non-freestanding design, but stakes easily into an incredibly sturdy structure. Low profile helps in the wind, and it comfortably sleeps 2-3 people. Tent is a single door, but the vestibule is well designed with doors on either side of the center -- both can be opened and still have ~18+" of covered space between them. This setup is great for cooking in bad weather. FP weighs 10oz. Floorspace is claimed as ~44 square feet. By my measurements, it is ~43, so in this case manufacturer specs are pretty much spot on. This tent is the blue white combo that is much nicer than the more recent color configurations, IMHO.
I'm asking $120+shipping. Retail was $220 on the tent and $40 for the fly. It's been slept in somewhere between 2-3 weeks, across half a dozen different states, and is in very good shape.
Kelty Pagosa 4 with footprint -- Trailweight tips at just over 9 lbs; footprint is an additional 14 oz). Obviously NOT a lightweight tent. I've carried up a mountain before, but that's before I learned about this site. The upside is that it's 59 square feet with two 20 square-foot vestibules, so this tent is palatial. And this tent is one of the fastest, easiest setups I've ever seen. One double-bar connected at two points creates intersecting "C" shapes that clip in -- one very short bar across the top braces the double bar and you've got 59-sq-ft of space set up in 2-3 minutes. I love the simplicity and functionality of this tent, and it's ideal for car camping or camping with a family. However, we need to make space on the gear shelves, so this needs to go.
I'm asking $120+shipping. Retail was $260 on the tent, and $50 on the footprint. Tent has been used approximately 3 weeks worth of nights.
If you have any interest in any of these tents, please PM me. I'm also open to trades for gear -- feel free to make offers. If they don't find a home here, I'll take them to craigslist. Thanks for reading.
