La Sportiva Akasha trail running shoes feel great straight out of the box! The flex and structure built in is great. I found the sole to be more durable than most trail running shoes so it's great just as a general walking shoe as well - day hikes, walking into crags etc.
There's nothing worse than having nothing to put your back against after a long day hiking. It also doubles as a durable mat cover making it really versatile. Keep the mat inside when you pack it up makes for a easy set-up. Totally worth the little extra weight.
My absolute pick! Light, easy to set up, and I've had it seven years and is going strong! As-far-as lightweight tents go this thing still delivers good durability. It's also quick to set up / pack down and double doors is always a good option for general hiking tents.
