i've used a MSR Hubba for years, but switching it up this year and going with the SuperTarp for solo adventures with a small stove. Me and another person it's gonna be the Sawtooth and med. stove.

Last year I used the GoLite Eden1, and a hilleberg akto both. My most recent purchase is a Kifaru Sawtooth. It should be done within a week or so. I look forward to getting my feel for that tent in the upcoming shed hunting season.

A good way to p*** me off while I am trying to sleep is to hear a skito!

Akto: I used the akto for preseason scouting for several nights. Excellent for one person with gear. Never had any issues whatsoever keep in mind the majority of my scouting was done from July through August. I have no doubt that the Hille can withstand a good storm. I almost forgot to add that during preseason scouting when using the hille that i took out the inner netting and slept two people in there a few times. No issues just a tight fit and I had the footprint in it so it somewhat had a floor.

Eden1 The Eden 1 was used extensively throughout the Colorado Archery Season. Ten nights. Very similar design as the Hilleberg Akto. One big difference in this tent is that you will not be using it with two people because the innner netting does not come out. the tent held up very well as there is several different way s to guy out the tent. withstood wind very well.
