Listed weight is 3 lbs 10 oz min, 3 lbs 14 oz carry, that's much closer to 4 lbs carry weight than 3 lbs. It is also a single wall tent. It has pretty good ratings in reviews and may be a good choice for some. I would recommend the original poster consider the benefits of a double wall tent. While AZ is probably the only place a single wall will be comfortable most of the time, if you plan on travelling anywhere out of the desert you will appreciate a double wall tent. Double wall tents generally will not have any condensation issues.PageRob wrote:My Eureka Zeus Exo 2 sleeps two plus one dog and has a vestibule for gear, and totes around for around 3 pounds.
I use a combination of the two, generally. I have a 4L bladder, as well as a 2.5L I can interchange depending on need. I also carry a 1L Gatorade bottle (with electrolyte mix); it's light, durable and cheap. I also carry a 2.5L Platypus (empty for extra-duty/backup if needed).OZZZ wrote:What are you using to carry water in? Just a jug or are you using a bladder of some sort?
I carry one MSR Dromedary 4 L bag full but have an extra, just in case, and a gatorade bottle, or two for mixing and carrying if needed. I over carry water, but I've never run out either.OZZZ wrote:. Also, What are you using to carry water in? Just a jug or are you using a bladder of some sort?
