9Kg :eek1 Dude, thats a lot of tent! Why do you need to stand up, landing a hot back packer is all about laying down Seriously though, lets put this into perspective: You plan on spending a lot of time in your tent, so you will need a sleeping bag, and probably a sleeping mat (i recoment the Thermorest ) Also, you will need some cooking utensles and probably a stove of some sort. Then you will need to pack a fuel bottle, and most importantly, water. Consider how much spece all of this stuff takes up and you are going to want to save as much room as possible. You have seen my tent, it´s a Bibler 4 season single wall 2 person tent. It´s ample for my needs and only weighs about 2.5 kg with poles and ground sheet. This tent although quite compact for it´s size takes up 1/4 of my packing space. In fact, my bags mainly hold my camping gear and my cold weather gear. Thje top box only holds my clothing, computer and things that need to be secure. I´m maxed out right now! So far i purchased a pair of boots and a beach blanket, but had to give a few things up to make the space. Before commiting to this tent, which im guessing will take up a lot of your ever so valuable space, you may want to consider something smaller and lighter that will still suit your needs. Just sayin... I´ve spent many years building up my kit for motorcycle travel, and have learned a lot of lessons to get to where im at now, so if you want some advise on good, packable equipment, you know where to find me. The Steel Pony bags have been very good so far, and i have no regrets! I wouldn´t hesitate to use them on another trip. Go with the silicone pad on the exhaust side! Frames are easy to build for the purpose they will serve.
