Outdoor Deal of the Day

Posted: July 2, 2012 in Outdoor

When I go backpacking, I usually only carry a waterproof bivy sack for sleeping. But times have changed. We live “back east,” meaning lots more rain, and I have two young children now, so I need a new tent.

If you are in the market, here’s a nice deal from Amazon on an Asolo two-man. Read a gear review here.


  • 2-person, 3-season backpacking tent in convertible wedge dome shape
  • Large front door with vestibule for extra gear storage
  • Super-sturdy 3-pole sleeve setup with tough aluminum poles
  • Zip-out curtains on door and roof mesh panel; gear loft
  • Measures 7′ 3″ by 3′ 11″ (not including vestibule); weighs 6 pounds 3 ounces
