It is possible to use this tent for backpacking, you can use any tent for backpacking. But, I would not recommend using this tent because it is rather heavy. In order to be able to suspend it's weight and the occupants weight in the air, the tent uses heavy straps and heavy metal ratchets. You could split a tent between two people and decrease the per person weight, but it would still be significantly heavier than a traditional half dome.
