If you've got a whole gang (well, a whole gang of three) heading into the backcountry and don't feel like drawing straws to decide who gets to sleep in the tent and who's bear food (it's been real, Steve!), bring along the Big Agnes Copper Spur UL3 3-Person 3-Season Tent and let Stevie survive to hike another day. Even though it sleeps three comfortably, has a full-coverage fly, and pitches using a two-pole hub system, the Copper Spur weighs in at just under four pounds, making it easy to load up and take with you. If you're looking to drop even more weight, bring just the poles, fly, and footprint (sold separately) for a waterproof setup that weights a full pound less.
The Spur pitches using a single hub-style DAC Featherlight aluminum pole, and has one cross pole that attaches overhead, combining with the steep-wall design to give you plenty of space to sit up without having to brush against the tent walls or jam your head into the roof. Even if you touch the walls occasionally (and you will, let's be real here) moisture won't be a worry, since the walls are primarily polyester mesh, allowing plenty of air to circulate, and the PU and silicone-coated fly has fully-taped seams and zipper-covering storm flaps to ensure that no water can sneak in and soak your gear in the middle of the night. The Spur has all the comforts of home, too, (fine, maybe not quite all) like four mesh storage pockets, individual media pockets with cord ports to keep things neat and organized, and reflective guylines and webbing to make circumnavigating your tent in the dark a little less hazardous.
