Review: REI Co-Op Quarter Dome 2

quarterdome2 review

Be honest for a second. What are you looking for from your outdoor adventure?

Do you want to dive deep into the depths of the wilderness, journeying down unforged paths like a tiny forest-Columbus? Or do you just want to hang out with a couple of good friends around a cozy campfire adventure with a couple of friends, a bottle of whiskey and a bunch of smores?

Depending on the day of the week, I want one or the other or both.

Let me tell you: finding one tent that fulfills all my outdoor ambitions is nigh impossible.

Review: Sierra Designs Summer Moon 2

Camping is about connecting with your loved ones and with nature; not hiding away in your tent.

Too many shelters these days offer crazy designs, fancy prints, and unnecessary amenities, as companies hike up their price with superfluous features. Instead of researching expensive glamping tents, reach inside your soul and ask yourself: “Why do I want to venture into the wilderness?”

Review: Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL 2

When researching tents, I’m always torn between my love for the outdoors and my love for a stable bank account. I constantly waver back and forth like there’s a cliched angel and devil on my shoulders.

The wilderness cherub is reassuring me that cost is indicative of performance and that the higher-priced tents should be perceived as an investment into my outdoor future.

Yet the bargain Beelzebub threatens that my soon-to-be empty wallet is better off choosing a cheaper budget tent.

Best 2-Person Tents for Under $100

Tents Under $100

Camping is about unwinding from the chaos of the city and basking in the beauty of the natural world. Unfortunately for many of us, the dream of outdoor bliss can be hindered by our finances.

Making an escape into the wilderness can put a major dent in your bank account - but the truth is - it doesn’t have to. You don’t always need the most expensive gear on the market or the newest wilderness gadget.

Review: ALPS Mountaineering Lynx 2

Everything was perfect... until we experienced Mother Nature’s wrath.

When the sun dipped out of the sky, the soft pitter-patter of drizzle soon grew into a booming white noise. My wife and I were cramped in our tent along with our Border Collie, watching the rain seep through the supposedly-waterproof fly.

Trapped at a remote campsite, the only thing we could do was try to get some sleep.
