Weight is cheap when cut up between two hikers – The Half Dome weighs 4 lbs. 11.5 oz. with all the included elements (tent physique, rainfly, poles, footprint, stuff sacks, stakes, restore package), and has a minimal weight of three lbs. 15 oz. (tent physique, poles, and fly solely).
We predict the true weight most backpackers will stick with it path sits nearer to 4 lbs. 4 oz. since most will wish to carry the stakes for strong construction however would possibly decide to go away the footprint behind.
When cut up between two hikers, that would go away every carrying simply over two kilos. Many solo hikers will carry that a lot weight for a one individual tent (or a roomier ultralight two-person tent), so the burden is cheap when seen by that lens.
