The Tents are coming! The Tents are coming!

The tents are coming! The tents are coming! ... a message from Reed and Maureen McCracken, owner-operators of

We've got a new shipment of Sierra Designs tents making it's way to us at this very moment.
We were in a Sierra Designs Lightening XT 4 not so long ago and I'll tell you it was a snap to put up...and very roomy. With nearly vertical sidewalls this backpacking tent would also be a roomy car camping tent for a young family. We can't wait to open up the boxes of all these great Sierra Designs tents. So which tent will we be sending to you?? Check out the full Sierra Designs Tents page and place your order today!

Also in tent news... this past week we took in a big shipment of Nemo's Meta 2P tent. So they are IN STOCK NOW and ready to ship within 24 hours of your order. The Meta 2P is the ultimate in the new ultralight backpacking category and is HOT HOT HOT! This is a tent you gotta grab while you can because people are just snapping them up. Check out the Backpacker Editor's Choice video review HERE. We're also anticipating more Nemo tents coming into inventory in the coming days - check out the great deals and options on our Nemo page. Later this week we'll get re-stocked on the roomy Asashi 4P. If only there were enough of those Asashi's to go around, we'd take one for ourselves!

Speaking of ourselves, we got back from a recent family camping trip where we tried out the Big Agnes' Lynx Pass 4P. What a value! At $299 you get an incredibly versatile all-around great tent. Yeah, you can find lighter tents, but there are a lot of more cost effective ways to shave a pound from your back than missing out on this tent. Our family of four fit fact it was surprising roomy. Best of all, with four corner vents in the fly there was practically NO condensation overnight, as an added bonus each corner had a mesh pocket for each family members' headlamp and personal items. Plus it was a snap to put up. The Lynx Pass 2-person and Lynx Pass 3-person tents utilize the same innovative pole architecture and share the same great features - just a bit smaller.

  1. Our old family tent had seen its last day and today, we're doing some hunting on a new tent. I'm pleased that there's a lot of new models today and very affordable, as well. I invest in good gear and make sure that our family tent is excellent and can withstand strong gusts of winds, downpours and even a little snow.
