Published by under Gear,Published Writing,Reviews

Another fun gear review for the Summit Daily News. This tent is a quiver of one. I’ve been using the Big Agnes String Ridge 2 tent now for three years and it has stood up to the test. I believe the Steamboat Springs manufacturer categorizes it as a three-and-a-half season tent — the Shield 2 […]
