In building a reliable, efficient, and comfortable ultralight backpacking kit, “The Big Three” are big for a reason. They’re the core components of your ticket into and out of great experiences in the backcountry. And everybody knows good things come in threes–like the three longest thru hiking trails, for example. We can’t walk those miles for you, but we’ve got a system that will get you to your journey’s end and beyond.
THE BIG THREE
There is simply no better way to measure the effectiveness of a pack design than to send it out on thru hikes. Over the course of 2,000+ miles and an average of five to six months, day in, day out, loaded, unloaded, jostled, dragged, exposed to water, sweat, sun, and dirt, one of these long walks is going to tell you the truth. So, that’s what we went after, and the Unbound 40 is the honest to goodness result.
Over the years, countless tent designs have come and gone, but our experience-led convictions about what makes a truly reliable, versatile, and enjoyable backcountry shelter have remained unchanged and unchallenged. The Unbound 2P Tent is the manifestation of our wish list, and, based on the feedback from the wide array of field testers who took turns with it around the globe, it checks off all their boxes, too.
It’s easy to get wrapped up in the versatility, packability, and unrivaled light weight that quilts add to a backpacking sleep system. Tuck into all those benefits deeper into cooler seasons with the 20-Degree Quilt. To keep the chill at bay, the 20-Degree features 1000fp RDS-Certified Grey Goose Down, generously stuffed in 1.5” three-dimensional baffles for premium loft and warmth. The durable exterior shell is 7D micro-ripstop nylon for superior air permeability and compression.
