Light as a feather.

Made for minimalist backpackers who move fast through the mountains, the Black Diamond Beta Light Shelter is an ultralight option that won't weight you down or take up too much space in your streamlined pack. It sets up using your trekking poles, so there's no need to make room for awkward tent poles in your pack, and the SilNylon fabric is extremely lightweight, yet tough, so it can withstand your adventures from the AT to the Rockies.

This shelter is ready to go on trips where the forecast is completely clear, although it can be outfitted with additional accessories when the weather is less predictable, or you're simply willing to carry a bit of extra weight. There is an optional floor (sold separately) that you can bring for extra protection from wet ground, and the seams can be treated with McNutt Sil-Net Sealer (not included) to prevent leaks when the rain starts coming down. Black Diamond also offers optional bug netting (sold separately) to keep the skeeters out when the swarms come out in summer.

Really excellent shelter

I've used it several times

It's a tarp. It's light as heck, needs to be managed for condensation, and lets bugs in. That's just the nature of things. That said, this thing is incredibly EASY and FAST to pitch, which sets it apart from most tarp-type shelters out there. It's super affordable and will withstand a whole buncha wind and snow if you anchor it well. We've had this halfway up Cascade volcanoes in ripping winds and it doesn't miss a beat. The livability for 2 is amazing. Lots of space to sleep, store and organize gear, etc. My wife, our gear, and our two dogs fit comfortably for weekend mountaineering trips. Minus one star because it does not come seam taped, the zipper can't be opened from the top for ventilation, and the anchor loops are non-adjustable. All in all, we love it.
