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


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
