Average Amazon price is closer to $90 per those three dromedaries. Not the lightest 1-person double walled tent, but to get something substantially lighter you'd be looking at offerings from MSR, Big Agnes and the like. Those alternatives will cost triple or even quadruple this price. As OP says, this is a well reviewed tent.

It's a steal at this price.
They'll fit, but they probably won't love each other the next day.

It retails at 299. I picked it up for 180 during REIs big annual sale.

Lifetime warranty to go along with it.

I'm not saying my tent didn't cost more. After already owning a tent I'm a little more picky about one the next one will be.

My 4 person tent is 7lbs. It would be hard for me to justify 4.5lbs for a one person.

4.5lbs is the shipping weight. Most reviews say 3.9lbs is the actual packed weight. Not bad for the price.

And that's the way to go with everything in life. Use something of lesser quality so you can appreciate something better. Thanks for the input.

IMO if you are going with this design for solo you might as well get a double tent for just a tad more weight. Real solo tents should be more like bevy sacs to save weight
Still this is.good tent and value for the solo hiker that wants a little more space and a vestibule for their pack

I agree with this -- either go ultralight with a bivy, or just take an extra pound for a 2-man tent. Even if you're solo, it's nice to have your gear protected if possible.

I own this tent (bought it for $90 last season) and I love it; well worth the $58.

The Q&A mentioned that the older verison was lighter. Amazon linked the two together.

If you say so. I'd say buy once, cry once. If it were a 2 person I'd consider it. But it is on the heavy side for a single person tent.

I'm not knocking the deal. It looks like a quailty tent. My first tent had all kinds of nice features. 2 person, over 8lbs. I returned it. Didn't pack down small and was too heavy. My current tent is a rei half dome 4 and it easily packs down to be twice as small as my previous 2 person tent.
