So far I have liked the Lunar Duo, Scarp 2, and the Double Rainbow.
Does anyone have any pros or cons to those choices? Or others to add to the list that I am forgetting? We hike mostly in the Southeast.
The Lunar Duo and the Double Rainbow seem pretty similar. The Lunar Duo is a tad lighter but is more expensive. The Scarp 2 seems quite a bit larger than the 2 but is also the heaviest and most expensive of the 3.
Other than that what are some things I may or may not be thinking about? We do share a quilt so tents with a pole in the center are out.
As far as packs go, this seems like a personal preference as I have gotten quite a few different answers. As far as brands go, it looks like I should look at SMD, ULA, Gossamer Gear, Granite Gear, GoLite, any others?
And while we are on the topic, I am getting treking poles as I stated, the BD Fliplocks seem popular, anthing else I should look at?
Thanks in advance.
