It’s been done before but not often and usually tents require DIY mods to get the weight down that low. While I haven’t personally used MIER’s backpacking gear, we’ve decided to put this tent into the lineup for a couple reasons. I think the very generous and protective rain fly combined with relatively lightweight, large floor space, and low price make this tent hard to ignore.

Tarps and some tents employ your trekking poles, eliminating the substantial weight and bulk of tent poles from your pack.

But you’ll quickly familiarize yourself with the idiosyncrasies of one.
A mummy-cut sleeping bag with face gasket and anti-snag side zipper, this bag compresses well and maintains an excellent loft. An ergonomic draft collar prevents the escape of warm air from inside the sleeping bag and the comfortable footbox gives you a natural foot position to ensure that you are comfy and toasty.
