Specific details and features I'm looking for:
- It'll just be my gear and I in the tent, so I while I am cool with something super small, if it's a tradeoff of a few ounces for a roomier/2-person tent, I'd be more apt to invest in that
- I want something with as simple of a set-up (including rain fly) as possible. The quicker I can set up and take down camp, the better!
- I am leaning more towards having a freestanding tent as opposed to non-freestanding (but would be curious to hear arguments for/against—wind is more or less my main concern here)
- I really don't know what "season" I will need to buy for. As of now, I am not interested in full-on winter backpacking; but I want something that can withstand high altitude spring/summer/fall snow
