I'm sure there are some experienced campers that check these boards.

Could you give me some advice on tents? I'm looking for a three season 1-2 man tent (just big enough for me and my gf). I'll be carrying it in my pack while mtn. biking or hiking so it needs to be small and light. I also like the idea of being able to leave the rain fly off during clear nights so I can star gaze. That means it needs see-thru mesh over the viewing area. A vestibule would be nice too.

I haven't bought a tent in over 10 years and I had no idea technology (and price) has increased so much.

Please share your experience and tell me what to look for.

Thx:

Keith

As soon as I read this, I thought of this new tent I had seen.

I bet this is really neat to sleep in. It gets you off the ground.

What's your view?
