And we have a winner! Joshua tells us the 2.1 tent is a perfect fit for room and weight. He’ll use it for an upcoming trip into the Golden Trout Wilderness. “A few of us will be taking water quality samples, botanical surveys, and wildlife use around the lake,” he told us in the comments. “In addition we are doing trail maintenance work and interaction with users of the trail system.” Thanks Joshua! -Juliette
Mountain Hardwear is a trusted brand for long-lasting outdoor gear. From backpacking tents, backpacks, and jackets to casual hiking clothing, Mountain Hardwear offers top gear for many uses. Keep reading to learn more about this brand and be sure to enter to win the giveaway at the bottom of this post.
Mountain Hardwear was founded in 1993 by a group of individuals who believed anything was possible and that anything worth pursuing in life required challenge. Over the years, the company has made many improvements to outdoors gear. They’ve invented new tent designs, pioneered new fabrics and pushed the limits to make the best gear possible.
Outdoor enthusiasts know that reaching the summit, completing the thru-hike or leading a new climbing route require a lot of hard work. These challenges we choose to take for the sake of adventure are possible thanks to quality gear from reliable brands like Mountain Hardwear.
I’m heading out on my own thru-hike of the John Muir Trail and I personally chose to carry a Mountain Hardwear backpack for this adventure. The backpack is comfortable, durable and lighter in weight than others I examined. Learn more about our JMT2013 gear here: John Muir Trail Gear List.
