Mountain Hardwear OpticVue 2.5 Tent Review

Bottom Line: A spacious and feature rich 2 person, 3 season tent. The OpticVue 2.5 has a really interesting design that allows for 180 degree views. A bit heavy for backpacking, but still manageable.

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XTherm Review

Bottom Line: Super light, super packable, very comfortable, air mattress.
