The Mountain Hardwear Hoopla 4 Tent is a 4-person, ultralight, simple air-light floorless shelter designed for the minimalist. One Trussring, one hiking staff and a single layer of thin structural fabric separates the thru-hiker and her gear from the elements. Compact and light enough to serve as a day-hiker's "11th essential" emergency refuge, large enough to serve as a backpacking group shelter as it seats 4. The traditional round shape of the Mountain Hardwear Hoopla 4 Tent deflects wind, modern structure and reinforced stretchless seams keep it light and add stability.

I have to say, I love this tent! My wife and I need something a bit more sheltered than the tarp now that our little one is joining us on our longer hikes. We have plenty of room for the three of us. It is easy to set up and light enough to carry for my solo trips hunting, fishing, and exploring our beautiful world. For added precaution for the Pacific Northwest, I sealed the seams. They were taped, but I prefer the added protection of the silicone sealer. I highly recommend this version of the hoopla as the weight is right at 2lbs 2oz with the sealant on the top down to the midway tie points. It is floorless, which I prefer. In mosquito season I add the nano net from sea to summit for the family, it's tight, but very light. If I am solo, I don't mind the head net to keep bugs away. We love this size and abundant shelter. For the coverage and the weight and cost, this is the perfect fit for us.
