Lunar Solo LE

rated 3 of 5 stars This is the tent for you if absolute lightness is your only criteria. I used this tent a few times, and moved on to slightly heavier tents that are easier to set up, need a smaller site, and have a higher ceiling.  The core problem is that if you're relatively tall, like me, it's absolutely impossible to sit up in this tent without brushing the ceiling. It cannot be done. And because like all single-wall tents it does condense, this means that my head got wet. Every. Single. Morning. I think you… Full review

Fusion 50

rated 4.5 of 5 stars FINALLY, the pack I've been looking for! Lightweight, but tough and can carry everything needed for 3-5 days...and a little more. Just for comparison purposes, I'm 5'10" tall, at 190 lb I'm about 30 lb overweight, old (55), lazy and, if you can't tell by my description so far, out of shape...unless you consider "round" a shape. Due to my advancing age and lack of physical fitness, I've been spending the last few years getting the gear I carry down to a more reasonable weight and, for a change, leaving… Full review

Lunar Solo LE

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Simple to set up, very light and roomy tent for one. Used it on a three-nighter in the Mokelumne Wilderness (lower elevations). Temperatures ranging from highs in the 70s during the day to mid 30s overnight. Some very minimal rain one night, but windy during the day with sustained winds of about 20mph and gusts in the 40-45mph range with the wind letting up between 8 p.m. and 10 a.m. I can't believe I got pictures of everything associated with this trip EXCEPT this tent! The tent was set up on a… Full review

Skyscape X

rated 5 of 5 stars The SMD Sky Scape-X is an excellent tent for anyone who wants to lighten their pack weight. For such a light tent it is also quite strong and ventilates well. Also a roomy shelter for one person. I couldn't be any happier with this purchase. The Fish Whisperer: First off a little bit about myself. I was born and bred in Mount Shasta, California, and naturally the great outdoors was right out my back door. My stomping grounds are the Trinity Alps, the Trinity Divide, the Russian and Marble Mountain… Full review

Gatewood Cape

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Gatewood Cape is a versatile and clever piece of gear that serves multiple functions so saves a lot of weight and packing volume both by using ultralight materials and by reducing your overall gear item count. It takes the place of some of the larger and heavier items in your pack—your shelter, your rainwear, and your pack cover. This is a review of the Gatewood Cape from Six Moon Designs. SMD is a cottage gear company in Oregon that makes ultralight, high quality shelters and backpacks. I… Full review
