For the past few years I’ve been relying on my Tarptent Scarp 2 or my Teton Sports Mountain Ultra 1 for any of my tenting adventures. They’re both great, but the Tarptent is designed to be an ultralight, small thing and the Mountain Ultra only sleeps one. I wanted something that was big enough for two with more room for luxuries. When Mountain Hardwear gave us the chance to pick out our ambassador kits for the winter season, I jumped at the chance at working with the Optic Vue 2.5.
In the past few months, I’ve been embarking on a ton of solo-esque adventures, sleeping in tents alone, all that jazz. I don’t really need to lug around a 2-person tent for one, so I’ve been turning to my Teton Sports Mountain Ultra 1 on all my trips.
