  Something unconventional
  Posted by: guideboatguy on Feb-28-13 12:38 PM (EST)

I mentioned this tent as a floor-less option in that other thread, but I didn't remember its proper name.

It's plenty tall at the front edge, and being ten feet long from front to back means you can keep all of your gear at the back end where the roof is low without detracting from the space used for sleeping. A lot of people wouldn't care for the fact that you need to rely on your own ingenuity to rig it securely, but on the plus side, anchoring options are almost limitless and can easily be made "better and better" if the weather gets worse. Still, it's not ideal for extremely high-wind situations. In any case, you can't beat the living space in proportion to the weight, but of course, a person who brings a cot isn't worried about such things.
