Every ounce packed on thru-hikes that last months must be carefully considered so needlessly throwing a three-pound tent in your pack when you could opt for single-pound MSR Thru-Hiker Mesh House 3 instead is a no-brainer. Its ultralight design delivers protection from bugs when your thru-hike takes you through the High Sierras on the PCT or through the buggy Blue Ridge Mountains on the Appalachian Trail. A versatile design allows it to be pitched under MSR's Hiker 70 or 100 Wing (sold separately) when you need protection from bugs and rain and the non-freestanding design means you'll want to bring trekking poles for setup. The Thru-Hiker comes with six MSR Needle stakes so you can be sure the shelter's secured before you climb in for the night.
