I have talked about it before.. but I love to pass on “Expert” advice on backpacking and camping gear. I always tell the Scouts that if you take care of your gear it will take care of you. Your tent is more than likely the most expensive or at least in the top three most expensive items you have in your gear collection. If you take care of it.. it will last a long time.
I carry the MSR Hubba, and have for some time. It is as good today as the day I purchased it, and has many, many nights under the stars.
Here is an older video on how to pack away your tent, plus some tips on care. In case you don’t believe what I tell you (speaking to my Scouts)… this is the Editor of Backpacker Magazine. Enjoy the video.
Have a Great Scouting Day!
