My Hilleberg Akto arrived last year at the beginning on July. So far, I can count 34 nights out in it. That's less than a tenner a night, and getting cheaper.
Well, it was small, and lighter than the water bottle that I had carried in that morning. It would go with me on more than 400 miles of treks in the year, and up a few Munros.
Weather at top of Coire Dhondail
Snow in the corries
Pitching in the Cairngorms
2006 - the first night out - Camping in Lairig an Laoigh at 750m
And the morning after - warm in tent, cold outside
A year later, I'm still not a morning person, the tent didn't change that.
But the guylines are better placed.
And finally, I was going to do a gear review, but there's more to life than the eternal search for what you take out on the hills. Is not the quality of your soul more important than the quality of your sole? Hike your own hike, pick your own nose, and best wishes for the rest of your own hiking year.
