Well after reading LOTS of posts out here I think I have come to some decisions, but I fully expect to get answer to this post that probably will make me think even more about my what tents I really need or want.
Right now I have a Kelty Gunnison 3.1 for my son and I to use together for backpacking and car camping, We used this on a three day trip in August when it was in the mid to hi 90's during the day and did not cool off much at night and the Gunnison did not have enough screen and airflow even without the rain fly. NOW it is great when its cold and raining, but not when its HOT.
I am thinking about lighter weight so I was thinking about getting a Go-Lite Shangri-La 3 along with the nest for when the two of us go backpacking so we can also keep all out gear inside.. My thinking is I can use the nest alone if its hot and we know we will be around lots of bugs or the tent alone or both if needed especially if we plan to backpack when its snowing.
Then I was thinking about getting the Six Moon Design Lunar DUO for when I go alone so I have plenty of room for gear inside with me.
Of course for the price I sure wont be ordering all this stuff at one time. BUT are these good choices for my 14 year old son and I ?
