Episode 5: Hammocks, Tarps, and Tents OH MY!

In this episode, Scott and Ariane discuss what to look for when choosing a tent or other shelter. They also chat about different shelter systems like, Hammocks and Tarps, and what is best for you.

Choosing the right shelter can be tricky, since there are so many too choose from. Answering a few questions first however may help:

  • Where you will be using it?
  • How many people will you be sharing it with? (dogs included)
  • How important is weight to you?
  • They also discuss some epic failures with their own gear, and why they have chosen a Tarp over everything else.

What we talk about

  • Don’t get caught up in the hype
  • Do your research! Online maybe the best way to go
  • I fell out of my hammock
  • My tent is leaking
  • Inverted Tarp?

They also discuss that people that are only going out one time, shouldn’t  spend thousands of dollars on gear. As promised in their podcast, sometimes renting gear is the best option. www.lowergear.com is a good place to start when looking to rent gear. Also, sometimes your local outfitter will rent gear.
