Rain Pants

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Great pants, limited sizing. Silicon coated nylon with polyurethane treatment waterproof to 2000mm of water head. Zippers on the legs for easy on and easy off. Not in the least breathable, but very waterproof. Not much to say, you put them on when it rains and you don't get as wet. The big downside is that they come in fixed sizes with an inseam of 31 inches for extra small, 32 for small, and 33 medium to XXX-large, making them very long for anyone under 5'9". You can order custom inseam, but… Full review

Rain Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars No more wetting out. This jacket weighs about 7 ounces and comes with a brimmed hood, front zipper, and armpit zippers. Depending on color choice it is made from sil nylon or polyurethane treated sil nylon. There are elastics in the sleeves and a pull cord in the waist to help with a snug fit. Breathable rain gear sometimes wets out and doesn't always vent enough to keep the sweat from building up. This jacket gives up on breathability, other than the zippered armpits, and focuses on a very… Full review

Duo

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight hiking tent for backpackers. This past February my husband and I hiked almost 500 miles of the Appalachian Trail. We started at Springer and upon getting over Sassafras Mountain it became very obvious that our current tent wasn't going to cut it. Ended up at an outfitter who sold us a Light Heart Duo. We set the tent up a couple of times along the trail and found it not to our needs.  We had the tent seam sealed at the manufacturers which cost extra and got the the cut-to-size Tyvek… Full review

SoLong 6

rated 5 of 5 stars For the weight, this extra-large, one-person tent is HUGE! It is easy to learn how to pitch this tent in under three minutes using your hiking poles and six stakes. I bought this tent secondhand, but the previous owner only used it a few times, so it was still smelling new. I wanted a trekking pole supported tent so I could drop weight by not carrying tent poles. I looked at and tried several tents, including the Tarptent Notch and the Lightheart Gear Solo. Ultimately, I settled on the Solong 6… Full review

Duo

rated 5 of 5 stars Sweet combination of low weight, durability, storm-worthiness, and room for two large people! I have owned over 20 tents in the last 25 years, and I have my new favorite. All LightHeartGear tents are now made in North Carolina too!! TVThis is not my first tent, but it may be my last!!! I needed to get a true two-person tent, and I decided to sell my LightHeartGear SoLong6, as it is more of a 1 1/2 person tent. I loved it, but I am 6'1" 295# and I like to bring my son, who is 6'4", so we needed a… Full review
