Mountain Hardwear Direkt 2 Tent 2-Person
Sleeping in a cramped bivy or suffering through a storm in a bare-bones shelter just to save a little weight in your pack simply isn't worth it sometimes. The Mountain Hardwear Direkt 2 Tent was designed for serious high-altitude conditions, but weighs a jaw-dropping two and a half pounds (minimum weight) so you don't have to compromise protection when you're traveling light. This single-wall, internal-pole two-person tent is, in fact, the lightest tent Mountain Hardwear has ever made and is just the ticket for four-season fast-packing.

Winter Tents Checklist
||Quality? Thankfully, most
four-season tents are high-quality. You can't go wrong getting a
tent by The North Face, Marmot, Mountain Hardwear or Black Diamond.
||Don't Get Too Big! Due
to the bulk of winter camping gear, many people get "too large" of
a tent. Unless you truly have use for a large tent (due to having
more people), it's better to match the tent's size to the number
||Smaller Tents Stay Warmer. A
smaller tent will stay warmer with the same people in it. Thus, a
tent designed for four people (but which has only two people in it),
will not be as warm as a two-person tent with two people in it. Yes,
it's common sense, but many people forget about it.
||Convertible Tents? There
are a few four-season winter tents that are known as "convertible
tents," working for both three season and four-season uses. These
tents are alright for late fall/early spring use where there exists
a high probability of winter weather. However, convertible tents
are NOT ideal for either intense winter camping OR normal three-season
||If You Camp in Both Winter And Summer. Instead
of getting a convertible tent, it's best to get one dedicated tent
for three-season use and another for dedicated four-season use. It's
not necessarily anymore expensive, either.
