Hi everybody.
I am Italian so there will be plenty of mistakes in this message, i am Sorry.
I Need you to help me buy a tent
I want to have a trip on the Road.
I Need this tent to be light.
I don't need It to be comfortable or spacious as i Need It only to sleep. I would like my backpack to fit inside.
I would like It to be 4 season, as i am not sure what the weather would be like.
I would also like to avoid condensation.
I would avoid buying a bivy as they have issues with condensation.
I would avoid buying an hammok as I don't know if there Will be trees.
I know the "perfect" tent doesn't exists. I want you to help me find out what's the best compromise knowing what i Need my tent for.
I considered the idea of buying a Hilleberg tent. They are really expensive. Is It worth it?
I will consider every suggestion you make
Thank you all for reading

Ciao,
Consiglierei la tenda Alpine Bivy di MSR. È 4 stagioni ed è piccolo e molto impacchettabile. L'unico lato negativo è questo: tu probabilmente non riesci ad adattare la tua borsa.
spero che questo abbia aiutato,

Happy Trails!

Grazie per la risposta.
L'avevo già vista però c'è appunto il problema dello zaino. La tengo comunque in considerazione

Hi Francesco,

A 2 person tent will fit your pack in the tent with you.
The Northface Triarch 2 is a lightweight (4 lbs with everything) 2 person tent.
Northface Triarch 2 is sold as a 3 season tent BUT it can handle 4 seasons.
I have used my Northface Triarch 2 in snow storms and it is fine.
It also is great in rain - i have spent a whole days of non-stop rain in it and it stayed all dry inside.
Being a lightweight tent, one must handle it gently - lightweight tents require gentle handling because lightweight materials can not be abused.

Hope this helps.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
