The more I bike-camp, the more I research ultralight tarps, tents, hammock systems, etc. The very light stuff can get pricey very quickly so I am hoping discount retailers like Walmart will pick up on the need for light gear. They already carry lightweight sleeping bags and other pretty good camping gear for the price.
I know people hate Walmart because they think it's better for people to shell out $1000s of dollars for bikes, camping gear, etc. to create more jobs but I'm glad such discounters help people with lower incomes save money because I think we/they deserve more free time to go out and bike-camp, etc. without going (deeper) into debt for doing so.
