Michigan Backpacking Tent Rental-Ultralight Backpacking Tent-Detroit Backpacking Gear Rentals

Backpacking Tent rentals in Detroit, MI. This relatively ultralight tent is only recommended for experienced backpackers. It is slightly more finicky to put up than some of our other tents as it depends on trekking poles for support instead of the typical tent poles, but if you want to shave a few pounds off your pack weight, this is the way to go. LowerGear offers high quality tent rentals by MSR, Kelty, Alps Mountaineering, Marmot and Sierra Designs. Big tents for families. Little tents for the weight-conscious ounce-counter. In-between tents for the rest of us. They've got them all. Rent camping and backpacking gear like backpacks, sleeping bags, tents, gps systems and much more in Detroit, Grand Rapids, Warren, Flint, Sterling Heights, Lansing and all of Michigan.

Part of the weight-savings is due to being single walled as opposed to having a tent body and separate fly setup that most of their tents feature. If it rains for a long time at night, single-walled tents can be prone to inside condensation unless the tent is setup to be well ventilated. So its not recommend sleeping in one of these with a down sleeping bag in rainy season in the East for example. There is no need to go with this model if you are car camping, unless you just want to see what all the fuss is about ultralight gear.

But enough of the warnings – there is nothing better than a light pack, and this tent will get you there in a hurry. Use one of our lightweight packs, a lightweight sleeping bag and lightweight sleeping pad, and you can be packing a base weight of as little as 5.25 pounds. Your back, shoulders and knees will appreciate it, and there’s little drop-off in camp comfort.

All tents are shipped to you clean, with no smells, tears or holes, and are easy to setup. All tents are already seam-sealed, so if it rains, you will stay dry. These tents are much better quality than the cheap ones you find a sporting goods store and at most rental outlets.
