      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Finding the ideal tent

Recommended Posts

Well, I got my REI dividend the other day, and I'm looking for a tent. I'm very into the outdoors, long hiking trips, mountaineering etc.. I used to think light and fast was the way for me because I like hiking, but now as time goes by I'm getting more and more into mountaineering, and am not sure what I should go for because tents aren't cheap. I'm thinking 2 person would probably be the best. I've been looking at 3, 3/4, and 4 season tents. At NOLS we used the mountain hardwear 4 season tents, and the clip system for the pols was very attractive (as opposed to the sleves). Anyway, any suggestions would be great because reviews haven't been to helpful so far. Thanks in advance.

Hilleberg have some decent tents that are a pretty good compromise for alround use

 

"Decent" [/i]and[/i] pretty good? Easy on the hyperbole there, chief; people are going to think you're a shill. rolleyes.gif

REI sells the MH EV2. I just used my 20% discount and my dividend to get one. Probably the last thing I get from them (REI, not MH). wave.gif

don't matter the brand - after a long day of trudging through the snow, the ideal tent's gotta one of these inside:

course, if it's a small tent (like them little biblers, which do rock btw) there might not be much room to move around in... HCL.gifbigdrink.gif
