Which tent for Overland Track

A place to chat about gear and the philosphy of ultralight. Ultralight bushwalking or backpacking focuses on carrying the lightest and simplest kit. There is still a good focus on safety and skill.
Forum rules
Ultralight Bushwalking/backpacking is about more than just gear lists. Ultralight walkers carefully consider gear based on the environment they are entering, the weather forecast, their own skill, other people in the group. Gear and systems are tested and tweaked.
If you are new to this area then welcome - Please remember that although the same ultralight philosophy can be used in all environments that the specific gear and skill required will vary greatly. It is very dangerous to assume that you can just copy someone else's gear list, but you are encouraged to ask questions, learn and start reducing the pack weight and enjoying the freedom that comes.

Common words
Base pack backpacking the mass of the backpack and the gear inside - not including consumables such as food, water and fuel
light backpacking base weight less than 9.1kg
ultralight backpacking base weight less than 4.5kg
super-ultralight backpacking base weight less than 2.3kg
extreme-ultralight backpacking base weight less than 1.4kg

Which tent for Overland Track

Postby Castropic » Wed 30 Dec, 2020 9:55 pm

Hi all, I'm based in SA and do most of my hiking here however planning in Nov 2021 or April 2022 to do the Overland Track.
I've generally gone with my kids/ partner and we have the TT hogback for that but now I need something solo.
I want to sit up, be able to store most of my gear inside the inner (not vestibule) but not have a massive footprint. I'm 173cms and will use a wide mat.
I wasn't sure how to delete this post but have decided to go with a TT double rainbow after further advice! Thanks everyone
