In the dolomites and like here in the german alps I recently had the chance to put the new Robens Buzzard Ultralight tent to the proof and I have to say I really love it ! It is by far the lightest tent I know with only 950 grams (33,5 oz / 2,09 lb) yet durable, sturdy aswell as wind- and waterproof to meet the high expectations of longer hiking outdoor adventures in mountain ranges like the Dolomites.
One night it’s new Hydro Tex UL Flysheet withstanded a huge thunderstorm with quite heavy rains and strong winds and I must say I was heavily impressed by this incredible thin outer shell layer. I love its streamlined setup with the popular single hoop design. Together with the Hydro Tex, the minimalistic inner tent and the carbon fibre poles it makes this incredible minimum weight possible.
It packs up ultra small for a tent in it’s size and is pitched up easily within 5 minutes. Overall it is quite a perfect travel companion for my photographic hikes and I do not want to miss it anymore. If you consider buying a new ultralight hiking tent for the summer months I can highly recommend this awesome piece of gear by Robens Tents and could answer some more questions about it if they come up.
