If you want to take your tent with you on a longer trip, find one that’s as light as possible. Here are some of the best options.

 

The Vango Helvellyn 200 is a top budget buy, coming in at around $135. For that you get a two-person tent that weighs about six pounds. It’s not the lightest, but at this price it’s one of the best around.

 

If you’re heading off on your own, or want to sleep in your own space, try a one-man tent like the Snugpak Journey Solo Backpacking tent. It’s not much bigger than a bivvy bag, with limited headroom, but the pay off is a low weight of around 4.4 pounds. You can also remove the waterproof fly on warm, dry nights so you can fall asleep under the stars. It costs around $140.

 

Those with a bit more money to spend can get larger tents that weigh less, like the two-person Mountain Hardwear Ghost UL2 that comes in at 2.2 pounds. That’s less than a big bottle of water, and the tent is made from quality materials that should last a lifetime. The Ghost UL2 costs around $350, so it’s a step up from the other two on this list.
