If you plan on being out on the trail for a couple nights, carrying your shelter in your pack, we suggest you consider a backpacking tent. Designed with a balance between roominess and weight in mind, these tents are going to be smaller and lighter than the camping variety, leaving more room in your pack for the other things you will need while you’re away from civilization.

Designed with the hardcore backpacker in mind, ultralight tents provide the best option when you will be on your own for extended periods. Even smaller and lighter than standard backpacking tents, these will shave liters of room and grams of weight from your pack, so you can carry more food and fuel. Ultralight tent designs put more emphasis on light weight than roominess, so the quarters will be snug so the voyage can be long.
