Thanks for putting together such an informative video. Because of you, I'm going to order the bivy and tube tent. In an extreme emergency situation, I think that a person could sleep within the bivy under the tube tent. As for the Teton 4 person tent, it doesn't seem like it would be tough enough. I've found that the Coleman Sundome 4 person tent is pretty darn tough and lightweight. Of course, it weighs 3 more pounds than the Teton. What are your thoughts on this subject? Is it worth it to carry the stronger tent, even if it weights 11 pounds versus 8 Pounds? Fore car camping situations where weight isn't a factor, I like Cabella's Alaskan Guide Model. Still, I like to carry a compact survival tent on the side.

Lisa Shea says:

Dude, if you're trying to avoid "trouble" I wouldn't want to be in a highly bright Orange tent. Eh?

Chris Homesteader says:

Most of the videos in this series are showing as no longer available. Bummer! Although it could just be the really horrific signal I get at my house.

Gary Roberts says:

Teton makes things that easily rip after mild use, why they are so light for what they are. great review.

Daniel Rivera says:

Do a review on the Taurus 2

Kurt Baier says:

Military poncho with 55 g drum liner for short bivvy.

Kaylan Lincon-Crough says:

Mate do a review on an Australian swag

Josh Russell says:

I love the stuff. For me personally though, if it doesn't have a bug net it isn't going in my pack. Nothing is more demoralizing that happens any time in the woods than being eaten alive by mosquitoes and chiggers.

Shadow Walker says:

Great concept.

ilbob says:

when it is warmer out I usually carry just a light poncho for shelter. I don't go real far out and I'm mostly worried about getting wet and cold. when I hike in the snow I have a giant plastic bag called a banana bag in my pack. I also usually have a space blanket but I'm not Overjoyed with it as a shelter. they are just too small and fragile but they can be used to keep Wind and Rain off to at least some extent. the Poncho is the big deal though.

Dano DeMano says:

I have a shelter (or two) in every load-out. I know how important it is to get out/protect yourself from unsavory environments. Even my combat belt hiking L-O has a poncho (w/ grommets) & an emergency blanket.
We carry fire shelters on our L-O's when we're on wildland fires for what they're worth.

A Spit of Mud says:

The only right setup is a tent. This tarp trend will get you killed when the weather goes really bad like snow blowing sideways on what you thought was going to be a beautiful trip. Tarps are good for covering your pack in camp or your firewood. A foot of blowing snow in at night in the mountains will prove this comment true and you……dead.
But hey, you'll look trendy out there Mr lightweight. Now do some squats…..

Liam Brown says:

David, what are your thoughts on the Lawson Hammock Blue Ridge? I think that it could work well in many climates provided the right sleeping bag and insulation.

Lagility Blitz says:

Lol

Lagility Blitz says:

I know this is a stupid question how much is the MSK one cost and I love you David

gasdorfic muncher says:

1# watch out for widow makers ..before setting up tents

Stop using the crap shot. I don't need to see through your ear.
