Last Saturday got a 1.5 kg tent. This will save 3 kg of luggage. To be quite honest this tent will not stand up to a good storm like my other tent. I am taking the lead from http://ultralightcycling.blogspot.com/. He says” so what you get a little wet”. On the other hand traveling lighter makes trip much more enjoyable. I found it gave me extra space in my panniers, this will free up space for other much needed items.This is my old tent.
Your old tent looks cosy! Want to see what your new tent looks like, have you a photo of it to show us?
Not yet will have to do a small trip to test it out.
