As is the subject, I thought to ask somewhere, found this place. Do you know any affordable tents, preferably up to $260? Just for the few months that are somewhat warm, so no need for a winter tent.Picture not related.
>>2207180Half Dome 2?
>>2207230It doesn't even need to be that large, even a 1-person will do.
>>2207240Any smaller and you might as well get a bivvy (40$) and a good quality tarpI use a french F2
Vango tents seem pretty good quality. I have a Helvellyn 300 and paid 250aud for it. Depends what you want it for though, so many different types.
>>2207180I've got a cheap shit Alps Mountaineering Zephyr. It's held up very well over 5 years of frequent use and at least one bad storm per year. This year I had it in a 3in/hour downpour with 40 mph gusts and it was basically perfect.It is a somewhat airy tent, if you need your tent to keep you warm, I'd pick a different one.
>>2207180I've heard good things about Lanshan tents but have never used one
>>2207180>Do you know any affordable tentstarp masterraceHow do you enjoy the warmth and protection that your bowdrill made campfire offers you inside your canvas cuck cage? How do you gaze at the beauty of the stars or the mezmerizing darkness of the forest in a fucking tent? How do you smell the farts of ferrets or train your body to resist hypothermia if you are wrapped up in the illusion of safety that your tent represents?How do you
Kelty Salida, $160, might be able to find it cheaper. I have had an early version from 2012-13 I think. Taken it all across the Rockies in some pretty intense wind storms and it never broke a pole, unlike a $900 Mountain Hardware Trango that snapped in comparable winds when I did an Andes trip (thankfully not mine).Not a winter tent but very fast set up, quite functional.
>>2208510>train your body to resist hypothermia if you are wrapped up in the illusion of safety that your tent representsare you training your body or is it an illusion ?
>>2207180>Trekker tent 2vIt takes me less than 15 minutes to set up, and I really don't try very hard. Keeps the rain out decent in the light rain conditions I have had. Plenty of room for me and my full 80 liter pack of larp gear, and on the front porch area there is enough room I can fill one side of it with firewood to keep dry and also the mosquito net keeps out all the bugs
>>2208664yes believe it or not you can train your body to create body heat
>>2209362they also have a smaller one for like 10 less but my friend has it and I wouldn't recommend to small but atleast I get to tell him it matches his dick
>>2209363That wasn't my point.If the tent allows you to be insulated enough for your body to not need to create warmth, then it isn't an illusion of safety- it's just safety.>>2209362this is priced right for OPgotta get poles thoI still stand by my tent >>2207525 it only needs stakes
>>2209366>I still stand by my tent >>2207525 it only needs stakesI can't carry all my larp garbage without poles, its too heavy
>>2209373>stakes are polesthe poles were in >>2209362 note how it stays up primarilyis why I noted you need poles for that tent, and stakesthis tent >>2207525 requires only stakesbut you can use your poles for the hike too if you want
tents are for homost. tarpchad
>>2209374I know it had poles I have the tent, I was saying I need poles anyways cause all my larp gear is too heavy
>>2207180Hijacking this thread to see if anyone has reccomendations for winter tents that arent hot tents so to speak. Weight im not really concerned about, and orice ways i mean it would be good to find a reasonable priced one but just throw reccomendations my way. I found "acrtic oven" tents and they seem to have decent reviews. Any thoughts on these?
>>2209770You could get the litefighter 1 and then get the four season conversion kit. The conversion is 120 in their website and I got my tent for 120 on eBay. I think all together it's 5.5 pounds.
