Summary: Summary The Macpac Microlight is a versatile tent especially for a 46-year-old Dad, me, wanting to introduce his 5-year-old daughter to the Australian Alps and for a once competent 20-something telemarker to give it go again this snow season on battered knees. At 46 I unashamedly want 4-season gear to be lightweight and this delivers at 1.5 kgs. I've heard it's perhaps too warm for Australian summer conditions but then you can't have everything, where would I put it!

Summary: Used this tent always on multi-day trips on foot. I have done quite a bit of research before I bought this tent and I could not find any other tent here in Australia that compares with this in regards to space and weight. Most one-person tents are too small that you put your backpack either under the fly or if you put it inside then it gets uncomfortable to sleep.
