Read our article on Ultralight Tents for additional information on shelter systems.
When selecting a lightweight shelters consider your backcountry skills and your tolerance for dealing with a variety of conditions ranging from wind, rain and snow, to bugs and heat. Tarps are typically the most affordable and the lightest shelters available, but also require some skill and foresight to use effectively in more challenging conditions.
