If you dislike mosquitoes,
Add Black Diamond Beta Bug. (140$, 1.9lbs)
This is the most simple way.

if you have enough money and dislike weight,
find lighter tents.

for ex.
Big Agnes Fly Creek UL2, weight 2lb 10oz $349.95

I am considering to buy this tent, because I may revisit JMT this
summer as a guide (or Sherpa) of my wife.
