One of the most frequently asked questions the folks at MPGear hear is, what is the difference among the three weights listed for one tent: trail weight, packed weight, and fast fly weight.
If you’ve ever wondered what these different tent weights refer to here is the answer:
- Trail Weight/Minimum Weight refers to the poles, fly and tent body.
- Packed Weight includes poles, fly, tent body, stakes, guy lines stuff sack, instruction, and packaging.
- Fast Fly Weight refers to the poles, tent fly and accessory footprint.
