Solo or Family? If you're going solo, there are tube tents (known as "bivy sacks") and dome tents with some variations in between. For backpackers who hike off-trail, a tube tent is ideal. It's light, easily set up, and doesn't need a lot of space. But for some, they can be claustrophobic.

If you're looking for rarer, maybe even valuable military goods and souvenirs, participating in live auctions or a physical visit to an army surplus shop is your best bet.
