I definitely prefer a comfortable tent .
Must be easy to set up . Plenty of room and keep in some heat when you camp in the higher altitudes.
The tent you describe sounds rather disappointing and expensive .
I found a two man tent with a waterproof floor , plenty of ventilation and a cover that can keep in the heat .
I put it on the scale. 2.4 kilograms. I would call it durable as my tent gets many years of service. Takes about 5 or 10 minutes to set up .
Tent pegs are ridiculous and a issue if your tent is on solid rock. Nasty to trip over for those after dark pee breaks .
The poles and packed up tent measure 2 feet or 60 cm . Not an issue as I prefer a 60 litre pack .
I get the lightest cheapest sleeping bag and carry layers of comfortable clothes to regulate heat . Covering your head is the key to keeping warm . A wool cap is my favorite.
Don't laugh the tent is a two man unit from Walmart. Cost 40 $ .
Dave try the gulf islands for some bike " glamping " . There are some beautiful camping opportunities, endless scenery. And hills lots of hills . My pack with my DSLR gear and all my camping stuff weighs in at about 15 kilos . Sometimes I add my 2 man pack raft . It all fits .
I love trail riding so stuff hanging off the bike does not work. Gulf islands are riddled with trails so I don't have deal with traffic.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts .
My thoughts : You don't always get what you pay for. Sometimes less is more .
Sun is shinning and I'm going bike packing . I may poach a summit . View of active pass and the gulf islands at night is rather surreal.
