Square footage
I, for one, have sized up and use "2 person" shelters for solo hiking. I found the "solo" shelters to be a tight fit, had little room to store/sort/dry gear, and offered thinner...

Ron's comments
+1 to Ron's comments. I don't always agree with Ron, but find he offers thoughtful opinions and explanations. I am disappointed in SMD's move to heavier packs. I think that part of the ...
