New member, first time poster here.
I'm going to be going for a solo winter overnight trip in a couple of weeks. Live in upstate NY, but this trip will see me moving through mountainous terrain in CO at 8,500-10,000ft.
My main concern at this time is my tent situation. I have a Mountain Hardwear Trango 2 which has served me well over the years. Used it in GA, NY, CO, and WY in all weather conditions. Usually with my lovely fiancee to keep me company.
However, this will be my first "real" solo trip. Done plenty of trips solo, in the ADKs and Smokies, but that is pretty easy, relatively low altitude terrain. And, generally speaking, the weather was pretty cooperative.
Having carried 80-100lbs over mountainous terrain for weeks at a time, I appreciate saving weight wherever I can. The Trango is a great tent, but it weighs 10+ lbs, and is way too big for my 5'6", 145lbs and gear.
Basically, at this point, I'm looking for suggestions on highly breathable, singlewall tents that excel in alpine conditions. Having owned several eVent jackets, I'm a big fan, and know that it works.
As such, the tents I'm looking at are as follows:
Integral Designs Mk1 Lite
Black Diamond HiLight
Sierra Designs Convert 2
Any suggestions and recommendations of other products I've overlooked would be very appreciated.
