    Default Zpacks Duplex or HMG UltaMid2

    Quick question. I'm trying to decide which tent is better suited to my thru-hikes, trying to attempt the AT this year, the PCT and the CDT in the following years. I'm impervious to the difference in weight and bulk. I'll avoid sleeping in shelters as much as possible. But I don't know which tent will give me easier time to find spots to pitch. Thanks for your replies

    I have about 700 miles experience with the duplex and if you are under 6' tall you should be fine with the duplex. I am 6'2" and got tired of my head and feet being crammed into the tent. I would also warn you that you will probably not get a triple crown out of a single duplex. I don't know that you would get that many miles out of any tent.
