If you are planning to have only a 2 or 3 day ride or pack trip during nice weather you might want to consider not taking a tent. Bedrolls can provide protection from the elements and precludes you from packing a tent.

Some of my more hardy customers do not use a tent at all during hunting season or inclement weather. These customers use a relite tarp and use bedrolls. Saves allot of weight and tent set up time.

Personally, I prefer a canvas tent to protect me from the elements. But the bedroll only is a good option for the 2-3 day pack trip.

Having said that, in my younger days I would not take a tent or a bedroll during short pack trips. Just a poncho to keep the rain off me if I did experience bad weather. Age does have some benefits in developing common sense.
