Expedition Essential: Shelter

Borrowing from the ultra-light world of trekking, tents built for backpacking can be a good go-to. Watch out for fabrics (nylon is lighter than polyester) and features like vestibules and gear lofts that’ll add convenience but also add weight. MSR’s new Hubba Hubba NX fits two people comfortably, has a vestibule for gear storage on either side, weighs little more than a bivy sack and packs down to the width of a well-built bicep.
