Check this clever tent out. If they could figure out a way to make these from lightweight materials, it would be a heaven-sent solution to long-distance backpackers who frequently get stuck in rain. At the moment a 2kg one-man tent’s more than I’d carry. Great for festivals though!
I saw someone nursing a baby in something much like this at the park the other day and thought it wad brilliant, just enough privacy & shade for a mom and little ones.
haha okay… I guess for hiking, folding might be an issue.
