another great review of the HardShell

check out this recent review of the SlingFin HardShell tent from Outdoor Gear Lab.

Here’s how it starts:

The SlingFin HardShell tent is the equivalent of Air Force One for mountain climbers and polar explorers. Its innovative design and premium materials make the tent reasonably lightweight (12 lb. 4 oz. with carbon poles), easy to setup, and castle strong. It’s like a portable luxury suite for the world’s most heinous conditions.
