    @Bonecrusher your huntech tarp & ground sheet combo probably weighs twice as much as my tent. (Tarptent Contrail is under 1kg with all poles, guylines included).

    You can get a tent that weighs less than most tarp/ground sheet combos. I like the closed in tent option but you could get more room with a tarp I spose.

    In the right weather sleeping with a tarp is much nicer than a tent. I have a big ole heavy army surplus goretex bivvy bag at 800 gm with a silnylon tarp at I think 400 gm. If I could be bothered I'd get one of the very light bivvys out there but the army surplus bag is nice and works well on its own too.

It depends on where I'm hunting and at what time of year but basically in summer it is fly/bivvy bag combo. This lets me do a weekend trip out of a 35L daypack. For the other three seasons it is the Minaret and a 50L.
    Me too.
