EP 82 - The Ultimate Ultralight 2 Person 3 Season Tent Review 2022

The Mindful Hunter Podcast

Jul 26 2022 • 1 hr 20 mins


Up next in the Mindful Review series is a comparative analysis of 9, 2-person 3-season tents including the Big Agnes Copper Spur, Sea To Summit Telos, Hilleberg Niak, MSR Hubba Hubba, Nemo Dragonfly, Stone Glacier Skyscraper 2P, Kuiu Mountain Star, Hilleberg Helags, and the Slingfin Portal. I looked at 30 different elements including price, build quality, practical space, pole construction, and many more.

I am also raffling off 4 of the tents and if you head to the link below you can buy tickets if they are still available.

Please let me know which category of hunting gear you would like to see reviewed next? Rain Gear? Electronics?
