      Love my Big Agnes seed house for 1. 2.5 lbs. I have the 2 person tent which is a little more comfortabel but the xtra 2 lbs is not worth it.

      depends on time of year and number of hikers

      early summer - bug proof tent

      mid to late summer - tarp shelter possible, but I still bring the tent:
      it's your home for weeks so having a nice place at night counts more
      than weight for me

      winter - bomb proof 4 season tent
