This is my first review of a shelter from HyperLite Mountain Gear. This setup is the ECHO II. The 2 person modular setup is ideal for all types of weather and will keep you dry. The whole setup weighs less than 2lb and because its a modular setup you can just set up the tarp or just the insert (tent mesh body). You can also decide to use the bek (vestibule) or not or just attach it and tie it off for added ventilation. All in all its quite expensive at $700 but if you have the money this is one amazing setup thats ridiculously light and made in the good ole USA! Kudos to HMG for not outsourcing.
The only issue I had was pitching this in high wind and rocky terrain. It was very difficult due to the shelters low weight and the stakes had a hard time finding something to grab onto in the rocky soil and sand. I had to get creative with the pitch but after a while it worked out fine. Just after a long day of backpacking that would be the last thing I wanted to mess with.
