For long trail hikes with shelters I substitute a Zpacks Pocket tarp for the Duomid. 5.8 oz. 185.00.
Weights are measured on my scale. Shelters include guy lines, stakes and stuff sack. Four decades ago, my first real pack, a Kelty Tioga, weighed 7 pounds and cost a whopping $75.00. My first real tent was a Sierra Designs Alpine tent that weighed 7 pounds plus. I don't recall the cost. In those times, the big 4 was a big load. We have come a long way. Hike the AT, LT or any National Park and you will frequently see kits and loads that make you ask WHY?
