rated 5 of 5 stars Great tent; good customer service. I just used this tent during an 8-day hike of the PCT. I found it easy to set up and liked the ability to roll up the fly so I could sleep "under the stars". I found the customer service to be quite good and I was glad to have them do the seam sealing; it was a chore I was glad to delegate. At 6'2" I had plenty of room in the tent for me and my gear. Finally, the tent is quite light. I highly recommend the tent. Full review

Solo Cuben

rated 5 of 5 stars Shelter that hits the sweet spot between function and weight. I have a Solo in Cuben fiber, with ti stakes and stuff sack — total complete shelter weight is 23 ounces.

rated 4 of 5 stars Initially I hated this tent. Initially I hated this tent. The floor was SLICK. I could not keep a Thermarest under me. Terrible sleeping condition.

Their solution was for me to buy a new and different tent at the outfitters in Franklin. WOW! Ultimately I added more seam… Full review

Especially if you use trekking poles when hiking, this tent is super-lightweight (because you will use your trekking poles to support the tent rather than lugging additional tent poles). Pitching the tent is easy and fast, though might take a little getting used to. Floor is a diamond shape, which provides a lot of space but do keep in mind that as you get to the tips… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Perfect hiking tent, does not leak, is ultra light and goes up quickly even in the rain. I find the Duo essential for hiking the AT. It serves as either a one-person or two-person tent, allows me to put my gear inside with me, and has enough room for a tall hiker. Love it. I have carried the Duo for two years on the AT and had zero issues with it. The tent goes up quickly even in the rain, does not get soaked inside while setting up in a down pour, and offers ample room for me and my gear. The vestibule… Full review
