The First To Thru Hike With LightHeart Gear

Amazing! Roomy and it can take the weather. I first saw this in Franklin and bought one after a few minutes of looking at it. Good Choice! This tent weighs well under two pounds! and is rock solid. Hand Made in Asheville, NC.

I am very impressed with my LightHeart Gear tent. I have the duo and I have used it twice at Mt. Rogers, VA. And I have used it once in the Otter Creek Wilderness in WV. Both times at Mt. Rogers the winds were very high reportedly 50 mph max. The first time I was there it rained very hard both nights and I stayed completely dry. This last trip was last week and the wind chill was around 4 degrees F and I stayed warm. I have highly recommended this tent to people and everyone has been very impressed with it. Great product made by backpackers for backpackers.

Sweet tent! I cussed it at first because I did not have it seam-sealed properly and was not setting it up properly. After I got the kinks worked out I am in love with it. It's probably the ONLY hunter orange colored tent on the trail.
