So, I am looking for a 2 man tent that will do in the Irish weather all year round, not necessarily snow/ice, not planning on going if there's snow. But needs to hold up in wind and rain. No leaks, no collapsing etc.
I am not sure what weight tent is too much to hike with. Considering 2 to 3 nights at most wild camping.
Looking online I am guessing 4lbs or less is ok. Needs to be light enough for one person to carry, and pack size small enough to fit in 65L pack.
I've looked at loads of tents online and they all sound great at first but then I read the reviews and there's always an issue, like leaks, condensation, etc.
The ones I like are too heavy or too expensive or possibly overkill (would do in snow/ice/everest etc)
Has anyone used any of these.....I realise they are not under 4 lbs but I do like them. There are sooo many, too many to mention.
fjallraven abisko lite 2 or 1
fjallraven abisko shape 2
rejka antao light xl 2
MSR Elixir 2
MSR Hubba tour 2
ANY MSR tent
Would love to hear of other tents others use backpacking in Ireland that don't leak, not too heavy etc etc.
Thanks a lot
