rated 3.5 of 5 stars Solid lightweight option, price effective. Tent holds great promise, but ultimately falls short of potential. Withstood PCT through hike with minimal signs of wear. When I first bought this tent I thought it would be the ultimate shelter with the weight savings of a single-walled tent, and the strength of a double-walled tent. While the tent is full of good ideas, it ultimately falls short of what could be a phenomenal product. I would recommend this product for anyone who is exploring backpacking… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars I'm a repeat customer—wore out one, bought another. I use this tent primarily in the Sierra Nevada, along the California coast, in state parks that allow backpacking, and on the occasional trips out of state (such as the Ruby Mountains in eastern Nevada). I use it in the alpine as well where rocks are required to hold the stake out points because there are no places to sink stakes. Generally I am out somewhere every weekend with few exceptions. We do trail crew, we do backpacking trips, we sometimes… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars I have the LH Solo and absolutely love it. It's light. It's a breeze to set up. Remains sturdy in a storm and provides wonderful ventilation on wet, damp evenings on the AT. I've used my LH Solo for several seasons now along the AT. It's the best tent I've ever owned. Takes up almost no room in my pack and is so quick and easy to set up. I love the integrated fly which allows me to set up in the rain without getting the interior drenched.  I can easily get my whole pack inside the tent with me,… Full review

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
