Well, on non-Scouting Saturdays I prowl garage sales. Last year, about
a month befor a Philmont trek, I lucked into a Moss one person (or if
you are veerry friendly two) for $25. I believe the model was Helios.
It's about 3.5 lbs., and has a single pole (alum.) that runs
diagonally. Quite spacious, you can dress sitting. About 25 sq.ft.,
plus small vestibule
I wish you the luck I had, it is a SUPER tent. Moss is a premier brand
like Walrus and Sierra. I have a Sierra Sphinx 2, and a Sphinx 3 which
are super free standers but weigh in at 6+ lbs. (3 & 4 poles,
respectively). Sphinx is an earlier model to the Clip Flashlights which
are very good.
