I like sleeping in a hammock over a tent. The included bug net and rain cover makes this perfect in every situation. Make sure to sleep on top of a rolling mat to keep warm in temperatures below 50 degrees.
If your hike requires a bear canister make sure to have it or you could get a fine. Holds food and keeps bears out. Make sure to fill it to the lid with anything to save space. Get a holder bag if you can't fit it in your pack.
