Re: Talk me out of these (Six Moons, Therm-a-rest)
I'm a big guy and the 20x72 Neoair is fine sleeping on my side. The SMD Lunar Solo is a very good tent. It can be tricky to set up, in my experience. For similar weight and price, I would a...

Re: ULA Circuit roll top vs drawstring

Photon Freedom Micro (White)
The newest version is the Photon Freedom To The Max, which uses some sort of new technology in the LED that doubles brightness while not using any more battery power. Nice. The Doug Ritter edition ...
