After my last trip to Chile I’ve decided to update my tent.  I don’t want a solo tent because of the lack of footprint size.  I’ve looked at a few sites for the reviews:
 

What I’m looking for:

  • under 4lbs
  • can use the fly and footprint as a shelter
  • external poles
  • two entries
  • three season
  • two man

So far I have it down to these tents:

  1. Marmot Aura 2 – http://www.travelcountry.com/shop/marmot/tents/marmot-aura-2-tent-2-person.html
  2. MSR hubba hubba – http://www.backcountrygear.com/catalog/tentdetail.cfm?PRODUCTS__ProductID=MSR5181
  3. sierra designs – http://sierradesigns.com/tents.display.php?id=944 

 Here is an interesting matrix based on all types of tents:
