Newbie looking for a tent
Hi-Friend of mine only goes packing with me once a year. That's all.He uses most of my gear, but since I have only one tent know (closet cleanout) he needs to get his own. Any lightweight inexpensive 1 man tents that can be obtained from a REi/Campmor/EMS??Thanks
Here's a good quality REI Outlet option here. For a once a year use, this is a good price for a tent backed by a great REI guarantee. A little heavy for a single person, but still under 3lbs. Why not?Edit for another: Tarptent Rainbow is up for sale over on Whiteblaze gear swap if you hurry.

Here is one...not super light (under 4lbs), but it has decent floor space, and for under $100.00 (after coupon) it seems like a great value. http://www.rei.com/product/827809/rei-passage-1-tent
It's not at REI/Campmor/EMS but it's relatively light and cheap:SMD Skyscape Scout, $125, 34 oz (assumes use of your own two trekking poles)Six Moon Designs Tents

A little heavy, but once a year who cares (and if its good weather camping leave fly at home). Less than a 100 bucks. http://www.geartrade.com/item/263367/flint-1-tent-1-person-3-season-bamboo-green-one-si
Thanks, didn't think of the REi brand tents. I was going to say the backcountry 1 by eureka but maybe not..Any others?
Watch for a couple weeks on gear swap here on BPL and you are going to see a lot of used solo tent option at discount. Really, it's a great way to go if it is not going to be heavily used.
They rent as well.
