    So it is over a metre long packed and weighs about the same as 18 litres of fuel.

    That is an adventure tent right there.

    I have used this tent since 1991 for ski touring, mountaineering, bushwalking, bicycle touring and of course ADV riding. The low profile makes putting on motorcycling trousers a bit of a wrestling match but for one person but it has been fantastic shelter. A little heavy at 2.4 kg but very weatherproof and quick to erect and pack up.
