Camping is a very popular outdoor activity for nature lovers and freedom seekers. However, to fully enjoy this experience, it is important to be well equipped. Lightness and strength are ultra important features in your choice of tents and mattresses for multi-day hiking trips. Every ounce less in your backpack during the day saves you effort and possible back pain. In this article, we'll take a look at the MSR Freelite 2 tent and Therm-a-Rest mattresses, two essential pieces of camping equipment for a comfortable night's sleep in the great outdoors.
TENT + ULTRALIGHT MATTRESS: THE PERFECT COMBO
The Freelite 2 MSR tent: an ultra-light, 3-season, semi-self-supporting tent
Therm-a-Rest NeoAir mattresses: optimized for spring/summer 2023
The NeoAir NXT update also re-launches the beloved XTherm with an improved R-value of 7.3, making it the warmest hiking air mattress on the market today. Therm-a-Rest has added 1.2 cm of loft to the XTherm while reducing the weight for each size, making this mattress a dream for cold weather hiking.
In short, choosing a good mattress and a lightweight tent is key to living the adventure to the fullest with all the comfort you need.
Product expert advice:
||These new Therm-a-rest mattresses are really bluffing because of their thickness, comfort and lightness. You won't feel it in your backpack but I assure you that you will sleep like a log. The best part is that there are sizes for all body types. Not having your feet sticking out is still better!
