Cheap Backpacking tent

Recommended Posts

May be too late for you, but I'd also go for the 7x7 Walmart tent. It's fly isn't as pathetically small as the 6x5 tent, which would be too small for you anyway. However, be advised that you should really seal the seam between the walls and bottom. They apparently aren't taped. Had torrential rains on our recent trip and our son and his buddy got wet while my wife and I were fine in my true backpacking tent.
Should have added you should check out this paper I wrote, too. It's made for newbies and Scouters that don't know how to backpack light.
