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.
