ENO Solopod Eagles Nest Outfitters

**Received at a VERY GOOD discount for review**

Short Rewiew: Awesome Hammock Stand! Very easy to put together, although it is a little heavy it is still easy to carry!! I purchased a large 50X30 canvas bag from Stansport (Found here on Amazon) and it allows for easy transport of this stand!! Great for a patio, car camping (I call dump camping) or even a day at the park or beach! With a good canvas bag, this is super easy to travel around with you! I tried a few hammock stands and ended up sending most back because they didn’t work well with my ENO style camping hammocks.. This one works GREAT with those and I have tested it with several brands of hammocks (ENO, Grand Trunk, Bear Butt, Kammok, and others). I highly recommend this stand!

Pros
1.) Stylish
2.) Easy to Assemble – No tools required and can be put together in about 2 – 3 minutes. Everything snaps together and comes apart with a push of a button!
3.) Compact – Most hammock stands that I found on Amazon broke down to 5 or 6 ft sections.. This one is 4 ft sections making it easier to carry in small cars!! It is heavy but does pack down fairly small!
4.) Fits in the back seat of a car packed or even a trunk.. Great for traveling or dump camping
5.) VERY Durable! (THIS IS WHY IT IS SO HEAVY)
6.) Includes everything needed! (EXCEPT for a hammock)
7.) Works with all the camping hammocks I have tested with so far (Grand Trunk, Bear Butt, ENO, Kammok)
8.) Can easily attach underquilts, rainflys, tarps, or whatever else you need to make your night comfortable!

Cons
1.) Doesn’t include any carry bag YET they advertise that it is portable (As seen above though, the Stansport Delux Canvas Bag 50X30 fits fine). You can carry it around in it’s box, but the box might not last very long
2.) IT IS HEAVY (About 50 – 60 pounds packed depending on the weight of your canvas bag).. But this is very durable. I have no issues with it being so heavy BUT this might be a deal breaker for some

Overall: I really enjoy this hammock stand and would recommend it to anyone

Tips:
1.) Large military style canvas bags work great at storing this. I purchased a 50X30 bag from Stansport here on Amazon.. The bag was under $25 when I purchased it and works GREAT to carry the stand around!

Luxe Tempo 2 Person 4 Season Tents for Camping & Backpacking

Short Review:  Excellent TENT!!  I just got back from a weekend camping trip (Very cold camping trip due to the burn ban in east Tennessee) and I must say, this tent performed wonderfully well and the quality it outstanding!! This tent is built just as well as my $250 tent from REI and has the features to match!  Super easy to setup and packs back down in a jiffy! 

Pros
1.) Easy to Assemble – Instructions are sewn into the bag so you can’t lose them, but the tent is a simple two pole design!  I had it up in about 5 minutes
2.) High Quality Materials – Aluminum Poles, fully taped ripstop fabric, AMAZING Zippers, and overall just a very well made tent
3.) Waterproof – Fully taped seams and a full sized rainfly help keep you dry! It did come a very short shower while I was out and nothing got into the tent.. We are in a drought (At the time of this review) so we haven’t had significant rain in a while but I have no doubt that this tent wouldn’t keep me dry! 
4.) Footprint is available for this tent and it has the places to attach the footprint!  This adds warmth and protection to the bottom of the tent

5.) Aluminum Poles – I never buy tents that have fiberglass poles anymore.. Aluminum all the way
6.) Easy to repack
7.) Perfect Size – Plenty of room for 2 (Store gear in the vestibule) or TONS of room for 1 with gear stored inside.  For solo backpacking I ALWAYS use a two person tent when I am not backpacking with my hammock.. I love the extra space
8.) Weighs under 5 pounds if you leave the bag and extras at home!  Packed weight is only 5.5 pounds so not bad their either
9.) Excellent Value –  This tent is made just as well as my $250 REI tent..  The value of this tent is great! Its hard to find an aluminum pole, taped seams, high quality tent like this for under $200 anywhere!  This tent is an AWESOME Value
10.) Vestibule Area for storing gear
11.) TWO DOORS – this is a must when you have two people!! No climbing over your tent partner when nature calls!  This tent offers two doors!
12.) Bright Color is easy to see in your campsite after dark
13.) Great Ventilation – This is important when it comes to tents..  If not, condensation KILLS!! Especially on cold nights.. This tent offers wonderful ventilation!

Cons
1.) Footprint must be purchased separately but this is common for most tents

Overall:  I am very impressed with this tent and own SEVERAL name brand tents.. This one is made just as well as all of them!! Will it hold up as well?  I have no idea, only time will tell BUT from the looks of the tent, the build quality is outstanding and this tent will last for a very long time!!  I highly recommend this tent to ANYONE!!
