I'm currently hiking the AT, just passed the 300 mile mark, and am trying to slowly go more and more lightweight. For my shelter I'm currently using the MSR Carbon Reflex 1, which I know isn't too popular because of its cost, but it's on loan from my school. It's a great tent for the weight, super weather proof and roomy, but at 2 lbs. 8ish? Ozs. I'd like to go lighter.
Could you recommend some shelter systems around or sub 1 lb that I should consider? My only caveat is that Id like it to have good bug protection if possible. If not I'd still love recommendations just so I know what's out there.
Thanks in advance for the help,
