Hyperlite Mountain Gear Echo II Ultralight Shelter System
I first backpacked in 2005. In 2011, I learned I had back problems. If I were to continue backpacking, I needed to lighten my load. This is how I found the Hyperlite Mountain Gear Echo II Ultralight Shelter System.
My search began for an ultralight tent. I looked for a double wall tent, 1 or 2 person, under 2 lbs, durable, made in New England. Over the years, I have hiked and camped in many areas of the US and eastern Canada. Through experience I have learned what to desire in a tent design. With that in mind, I also wanted this tent to protect me from insects, including tics, and to be good in high humidity at most temperatures. After a lot of INTERNET researching, I found that Hyperlite Mountain Gear, in Biddeford Maine, designed and manufactured tents. They seemed to have what I was looking for in a tent. Since it was an expensive product, I made a visit to the factory. To read more please chick here.
