Four season gear is heavy and bulky. A three season tent should be enough. On the days when the weather sucks, seek out a hotel or hostel. The money you save by camping on the clear days should help cover the cost.

How many of us here contributing had real long distance travel with an enduro ? and had very difficult time in bad weather ?
Roameo talks about RTW. RTW means you will not have a motel or something else, even camping most of the time.
You had a problem with bike and need to fix it and need to stay in a place for 2 weeks in bad weather. Or needed to camp somewhere in Mongolia, Africa, Russia, Alaska, you name it...and nobody can guarantee it will be in nice weather.
In this case should decide 1 kg heavier and better protection or lighter and worse protection ! ?
I prefer better gear in extreme situation...
Of course everybody's choice is different...
Roamao, you should decide which gear is more critical and how much can you tolerate it as weight, space and money. Make an order in which it is the more important. Than decide and do what you want and never regret
