SoLong 6

rated 5 of 5 stars I was on my 82nd day of my thru hike of the Appalachian Trail when I had to leave the trail due to a death in the family. I will return to finish my hike on the Appalachian Trail after trail days in 2019 at mile marker 771. During this time, I learned more about my favourite pieces of gear starting with my tent, the LightHeart SoLong 6. This tent weighs 24oz supported by two 130cm trekking poles, has 10-inch bathtub base walls, two air vents on top of the tent, small and large vestibules with the… Full review


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
