Unless you're a hardcore minimalist, the heaviest item in your pack isn't your stove fuel or your food--it's your tent. Like food and fuel, your tent is an essential, but there's nothing wrong with shaving a couple of pounds, especially if you can do it without compromising versatility. The Light Wedge 2 is one such example. While we mentioned in the little text by the picture that it weighs six pounds, that's actually the packing weight. It's possible to lighten the load of this tent down to 5 lbs. 6 oz., or less if you're creative with your pitching approaches. It has a full-size mesh, D-shaped door and two top vents plus a rear window for 4x4 venting on muggy summer nights. The outer fly has a non-yellowing window made from UV-resistant and tear proof UVX film, a proprietary clear material that's been tested at 27,000 feet and resists clouding like PVC or plastic film. It even stays flexible all the way down to -66 F, not that we're saying that you should use this durable, three-season tent in -66F, but if you did, you would have a clear perspective on your predicament. The aluminum brow pole over the vestibule adds strength while increasing headroom above the door. Large pockets along the walls and suspended webbing loops help keep your gear in order.
