I am looking for some suggestions for 3 or 4 man tents for Philmont Scouts.
Doug Prosser's crew back in 2006 used MH Kiva tents, which, weight wise, works out nicely. I was fortunate enough to locate a used Black Diamond Megamid with floor and pole used for $100. As our troop is sending 4 scouts as part of a 3 contingent group, this is a great deal. Tent-42 oz, Floor-30 oz, Pole-13 oz.
In 3 weeks, I will be doing a presentation to the whole contingent (30+ scouts and adults) on Philmont Lighweight Backpacking, based on much of Doug Prosser's philosophy and experiences. I am looking for some ideas of other tents I can offer to these scouts and their parents. In a week or so, I hope to take many of your suggestions and post in the Gear Swap section looking for some reasonable bargins.
Thanks in advance for your ideas and suggestions.
