I've some generic questions about tents for the touring guru's and didn't want to start a new thread or hijack anyone else's particular tent thread. Firstly, is a legit 4 season tent really necessary for Aus BC alpine conditions? I was given some advice recently that camping on Stirling for example wouldn't require a 4 season tent, would this be accurate or folly? Keeping in mind I don't intend on heading out in a torrential downpour and anything remotely like it. If it wasn't really necessary for Stirling could the same be said for the likes of Bogong, High Plains, Main Range? Secondly, size? Is a smaller tent a better option for retaining heat? Would I be better served with a smaller tent and store gear in the vestibule or something larger with gear stored inside? What gear would absolutely need to be stored inside? Boot liners? shell jacket/pants? insulation layers? Any advice would be appreciated!
