2 man < 2 Kg
These 2 man hiking tents are 2 kilos or less. There are fly only options or tents without floors or screens available for those who are looking for partial cover. Where I come from one of the key roles of a tent is to keep critters off you - so I've only included sealed options.
|Bargain 2 man||
||On 5 September 2010 I was walking through my local Coles store and saw a display of 2 man tents. Cost $15 each. I asked a check out operator to weigh one for me and got 1.5 kilos. I did not think this was possible but at the price I bought one anyway. When I got it home I found that it weighed 1,421 g all up - so I am guessing trail weight is 1.3 Kilo. This is extraordinary for a chain store 2 man tent. Seemed like a great idea till I lent them to some friends for a weekend of trekking. It rained that night. This tent leaks - so the conclusion is world class weight - but not actually functioning as one would expect. Be warned.|

|Big Agnes Seedhouse SL2||
Trail Weight 3lb (1.4
LItekamper review Seedhouse SL2 - I have one of these - it took a while to come my way though. My decision making was based on the fact that I did not want a one person tent after my experience in my Blackwolf Bivy Bag. I needed more room. I went to REI in Chicago in December 2010 with the intention of buying a Hubba Hubba which was on sale. However, when I picked up the Seedhouse in comparison I immediatley rejected the Hubba Hubba idea - much larger as well as heavier. The SL2 was noticeably more compact and lighter. It was expensive, however, so I did not proceed at that time. A little later, after I got back home to Australia I found some closeout items for sale on the Big Agnes web site - so I bought an SL2 with footprint plus an SL3 to cover most of my options - solo walking or with one or two kids. I have used this tent once on a single night through walk. Worked a treat and kept my son and I dry with some light falls through the night. Great investment from my perspective. It has an inner layer which is all fly screen - open weave which is perfect for my moderate climate.
