Too often in the ultralight backpacking community it seems like when you buy lighter gear with less features and amenities, it somehow ends up costing more. River Country Products seems to have found the answer- at less than $50 USD with a built in mesh and sleeping floor, their single man Trekking Pole Tent is the best deal on the market.

This shelter, though it only sleeps one, has everything an individual could want or need in a basic tent. While it’s not the lightest tent ever made, you can’t argue with the price or the practicality. If you’re a backpacker who doesn’t mind putting some work into their tent, look no further than this low cost shelter.
