My wife and I are going to the Canadian Rockies for 2+ weeks of hiking and backpacking, early this summer.
I have a Hilleberg Nallo 3 that I may take but would rather not if I can find something cool for the two of us, that would be...
1) Roomy. A true two person tent/shelter for two people and gear. One that we could both sit up in and move around a bit. I'm 5'11" and she is shorter, both on the slender side.
2) No heavier than 4.5 pounds complete with bug protection.
3) Is actually available for purchase, in time for us to get it dialed in. That rules out MLD mids.
4) Storm worthy is where it's at. Not so concerned with snow loading but we do live at 7000 ft in Colorado and get out early in the season. It's mainly the thunderstorms and gust fronts that I'm concerned with. We'll carry a little extra weight to know that the our shelter "has our backs".
The Golite Shangri-La 3 is available but it looks like it might be hard to find a place for pitching it in smaller camping situations. Is that true? Is it true enough to be a factor in the Rockies.
I'm considering the new Hilleberg Rogen if I could get one by the end of May. This doesn't seem 100% likely but I'm waiting to hear back from Petra. I'd certainly rather not spend that much but if the Rogen would work out, I'd likely sell our Hilleberg Staika.
