    what's the best 2 man tent for hunting?

    bush and alpine, North & South Is but not interested in mid winter camping in freezing snow conditions chasing those hairy goats. Ha ?!

    What are the trade off's in weight vs strength & durability ? & cost ?

    I had the Macpac Minaret 2 man in Fiordland for ten nights , struck an absolute shit storm.
    Pretty stoked with its performance, held up in cold wet temps for days.

    Haha @csmiffy - I have two One Planet Goondies (after my 20+ year old Macpac Olympus gave up the ghost and leaked all over some cobbbers that borrowed it for a trip in the Makarora - for some reason they were less than amused, funny that, I thought it was bloody hilarious). The one person is great, the two man is pretty slim for two persons. The Goondies are very bulletproof (spent a very nervous winter night storm on the main ridge above the Narrows in Fiordland, but the tent handled it fine) and can be had in both "normal" with quite a bit of mesh, and "alpine" with not much mesh (but more weight). Some people don't like them cause you have to pitch them inner first, but thats never bugged me, even in the rain.

    Have used a MSR NX for the last 3years for fiordland trips without any issues, its never let any water through the top or underneath but doesn't take to kindly to high winds.
