Abisko Shape 2 tunnel tent, by Fjällräven


This tent is ideal for backpackers and avid campers who hit the trail no matter what the weather forecast is calling for. (After all, “You don’t know, if you don’t go.”) Lightweight (1,650 g) yet burly, this four-season tunnel tent has served me well time and time again. Just this past weekend, while camping at 11,000-feet on Colorado’s Mt. Princeton, I endured pouring rain and howling winds and the Abisko Shape 2 held mighty tough through the night, keeping me warm and dry as can be.

Highlights include a massive vestibule, big enough for two persons to comfortably cook underneath in the event of high winds or wet conditions; serious warmth yet ample ventilation when you wish to cool off; color-coded tent poles for pain-free pitching; a spacious interior complete with a clothesline for drying or hanging whatever you please, plus mesh pockets for storage; a super-durable flysheet; and a mighty packable character, great for outings where weight and pack-space are at a premium. For the frequent go-getters who are seeking a dependable option, the Abisko Shape 2 comes highly recommended.

And hey, P.S. when you’re hunkered down in the Abisko Shape 2 next month, I might suggest you do so while wrapped in the Singi Two Seasons Regular sleeping bag. This bad boy delivers all the warmth you need for most summer and fall adventures in a lightweight (1,000 g), packable and supple package. Synthetic insulation excels in both wet and dry conditions, keeping you cozy and happy down to about 30 degrees Farenheit. Full-length, two-way zippers allow for easy entry, exit and ventilation—greatly appreciated when the mercury rises. It’s also comfortably sized, especially for a sleeping bag that is designed with multi-day outings in mind: I’m 5’ 9” with a mid-sized build and have plenty of room to spare while lying inside of the Abisko Two Seasons Reg.

I’ve sported a handful of other “backpacking sleeping bags” over the course of the summer and most of ‘em are too short n’ too slim for my liking. As such, this has become my go-to. Additional features include a drawcord at the head; a padded flap along the openings to keep warm air in and cold drafts out; an inner pocket to store a few essential belongings; eyelets at the feet for hang drying; and a stylish stuff sack. Happy camping!
