thoughts on tents in Florida

Posted at — Jul 31, 2016

Joe Robbinet likes the Big Anges Creek ul1 and while it’s a really expensive tent I can see the appeal. Total carry weight is around 2lbs but you can reduce the weight to just over 1lb if you give up the rainfly and poles and instead use a tarp and ridgeline. I don’t have any concept of what a single pound feels like, however, if every item in your pack was rounded up to the nearest pound it would likely be very unpleasant.
