If you plan to go hiking for several days and carry your tent in your backpack, the best best choice will be a bivouac or trekking tent. They are light and compact.
You can easily slip them into your backpack or hang them on the straps.
Perfect for a few days’ bivouacking, practical to pitch and dismantle, they are generally around two kilos lighter for a two person tent.
Several models are available: light, ultra-light, for use in warm temperatures or stormy weather...
Depending on the number of trekkers, you can find models from one to four people.
These tents (usually) only offer sleeping space and a very small space to store belongings.
