Whatever you do, don't let them pick up your pack.
Tell your buddies that you'll carry the tent if they carry the food. They'll jump on that deal, not knowing that the Big Agnes Fly Creek UL3 3-Person 3-Season Tent (built for those looking to shave serious grams) weighs less than breakfast, courtesy of its ultralight DAC Featherlite hub-style pole system and lightweight but durable nylon fly. The 3-person Fly Creek has one more pole than the smaller models to provide a little bit of extra living space, but still has a trail weight of just three pounds, which is reducible to just 2lb 5oz if you choose to bring just the fly, poles, and footprint (sold separately). The hub system lets you pitch the tent in no time flat, and lightweight DAC Twist Clips make it easy to attach the tent to the poles.
You've also got a fully-featured fly with taped seams, a storm flap, and a roomy vestibule to stash your gear in. When you guy it out, you'll notice that all the lines and pieces of webbing are reflective, saving you the trouble of navigating extra-cautiously when darkness falls. Big Agnes also decked the Fly Creek out with seven (count 'em, seven) mesh pockets to hold more headlamps, glasses, and books that a group of three could reasonably bring with them. Better make sure your buddies are carrying all that, too.
