Our most popular solo shelter, the ProTrail is the best tent for thru-hiking, bikepacking, or any trip where every gram/ounce is important. For day in and day out on the trail, the ProTrail's lightning fast set-up and packability make it the perfect ultralight companion. Need room for two? Have a look at the MoTrail.

Use of a groundsheet depends on the conditions you expect to encounter and your style of camping. The sewn-in flooring is remarkably tough and does not usually require a separate groundsheet. We sell optional Tyvek groundsheets which are very tough and great for sleeping out or taking a break, but generally heavier than you need for floor protection on longer hikes, in most conditions. For use on very rocky ground and desert conditions where puncture wounds are possible, a groundsheet is recommended.
