    GoLite Shangri-La 2. 26 ounces if I remember correctly. Plenty of room for one guy and all the gear you can carry.

    I still use a $30 Sportsman's 2 man tent. Heck it's pretty lite and has kept the down pouring rain and a few feet of snow off me in the past. Nothing wrong with getting what you want to afford. I personally chose to spend bigger money on clothes, packs and other gear then a tent.
    I don't Break the rules, I Modify them.

    my first tent for backpacking in areas that had zero chance of rain (CA hunting in July) was a Texsport Bivy. The older version had not vestibule and weighed 3lb and fit two people. I still have it and use it today.

    the newer version have a vestibule, weigh 4lb. I have no idea how waterproof they are though.

    you can pick them up on ebay for $50 then add in a good lightweight tarp for $50 and you would be under budget and good to go.

    I have a Spitfire one and two person, I would sell either one very reasonable. I never used the one person as there was always two of us.
