MSR, Big Agnes, etc tents are pricy because it's tricky to make a tent that does the job reliably and that can be carried all day in a backpack.
If you're car-camping then the big Walmart or Cdn Tire tents may be more comfortable for less $$.

I picked up a Marmot Trestles 30 on LiveOutThere but just checked and they seem to be sold out. After all the discounts I got it for like $60. It was 40% off, lifetime membership 10% off and then another $20 off when you spend $100 (I bought a sleeping mat).

There's the Cloud Up 3 as well sold under many brand names, just search for ultralight and it will come up, about $160 no taxes or pay a bit more for the siliconed red/gray (hello msr) version with higher waterproofingantithesis99 wrote: ↑Jul 26th, 2017 1:34 pmThat's a pretty sweet deal on the Marmot.
If someone is looking for something lighter (~1.3 kg) and cheaper (~$100), but also smaller (2 person) and probably a bit less durable, there's the Nature Hike cloud up 2, I have it, fits 2 adults (very snuggly), but it's pretty well built, comes with a footprint and quite versatile if you want to save even more weight.

Just to throw out another options, not a lot of tent posts in Hot Deals

They had a coupon for 20% off $100? Or was it the first time purchase save 20% coupon? I thought that was only valid on full price items?mikek33 wrote: ↑Jul 29th, 2017 3:54 pmI picked up a Marmot Trestles 30 on LiveOutThere but just checked and they seem to be sold out.

I think TheLastHunt has some Trestles sleeping bags left on discount. From my research it's a solid option for a synthetic fill sleeping bag. Down filled sleeping bags get quite expensive.
My wife has a MEC Drake down filled and loves it.

Princess Auto has one for like $3.99 I think. Cheap insurance in the long run as buying a new rainfly later can cost a bit.
Also check out army surplus stores for paracord. My local surplus store (Creative Outdoors in the GTA at HWY7/East Beaver Creek) has 30' used OD green paracord for $3.00. I think it's $10 for new 50' black paracord. Nothing wrong with the used parachute cord for tarp use or hanging your bags to keep Yogi bear and friends from tearing up your bag. Just don't be repelling off it and you'll be ok.

Seems it's not at this price anymoreParttimebargainhunter wrote: ↑Aug 23rd, 2017 3:51 pmbought this bad boy for $216 a while ago, under 200 is a great deal.
It fit my girlfriend and 50 lbs dog easily, with overnight bags at our feet. Coleman double air mattress from Canadian tire fit perfectly.
I was actually pretty shocked how small it is disassembled, easy to carry, great tent can't go wrong at this price!
