There’s no need to fuss with a trekking pole tent when you have a freestanding shelter this light. At less than 2 pounds, the Fly Creek achieves respectable solo-hiker weight, but its 28 square feet of floor space is enough for two (and a very low per-person weight if you don’t mind dealing with a single door). The Fly Creek’s hubbed pole helped it withstand 30-mph winds and driving rain on the Colorado Trail. 1 lb. 15 oz.
