Exped Mira I Tent: 1-Person 3-Season
Backpacking solo requires careful planning and lightweight gear that won't weight your pack down. The Exped Mira I 3-Season Tent delivers on all fronts with a lightweight design that comes in with a trail weight of just under two pounds, meaning you'll have some extra room for your flask and fishing pole. The endoskeleton design makes setting the tent up after a long day of hiking quick and easy, while a mesh canopy provides a bug-free view of the stars on those cool and clear nights. The canopy is treated with a silicone coating with a water column rating of 1200mm to buck sleet and rain. To keep your gear out of the rain, the tent is fitted with a rear gear shed with an inner tent zip, so you can quickly access gear from your pack, without having to get out of your sleeping bag.

Backpacking Tents Checklist
||Weight Matters! For two
people, any backpacking tent should weigh less than six-pounds...preferably
||Don't Forget the Bulk. Packing
a bulky tent sucks. Make sure it packs down tightly, ideally packing
down to about 10x20 inches (smaller is better).
||Mesh Matters. As a general
rule, the more mesh, the lighter the tent. For warmer three-season
use, usually, the more mesh you have, the better. Not only does the
mesh save weight, but also allows for better air-flow.
||Vestibules & The Rain. An
often forget detail about backpacking tents are the vestibule. The
vestibule provides a little canopy in front of your tent. Not needed
during good weather, but absolutely needed during wet weather. Try
to get one that is about 5 sq. feet large, or larger.
||Speaking of Rain... Make
sure the entire floor of the tent is waterproof. Most are, but if
the tent says the floor is just "water resistant"...don't buy it!
You'll regret it the first time your sleeping in it during the rain.
||Remember the Footprint! Virtually
all good backpacking tents also come with "footprints," which are
essentially waterproof and tough tarps cut-out in the shape of the
tent. Buy It! Not only does it enhance the tent's waterproofing,
it also protects the bottom of the tent. Yes, they aren't cheap.
But they are a lot cheaper than replacing the tent due to a sharp
stick tearing a hole in the floor of your expensive backpacking tent!
