Haven Tent

Friday, February 7th, 2020

At last week’s Outdoor Retailer I ran into Haven Tents which was originally launched on Kickstarter.

They’ve taken the best of the hammock and tent and put them together. It will accept a sleeping pad and offers a much more stable sleeping platform than a traditional hammock. Additionally, it has a roof which will zip closed so no need for an additional tarp.

As you can see, there’s interior storage and you can even store your pack inside the Haven with you.

Further Faster Designs – Super B

Friday, December 6th, 2019

Super B, is Further Faster Designs’ modern answer to the venerable poncho liner.

They combine Climashield Apex insulation with 1.1 oz per square yard micro rip-stop DWR shell material and a built in toggle and draw cord system that allows the user to configure it as a sleeping bag or draped around the shoulders as a static layer for camp/patrol base activities.

Tgey offer two insulation weights, 2.5 and 3.6 oz per square yard so the user can make decisions based on the time of year and weather. The Super B is rectangular, enabling the draw cords, one located on a short end and another mid-way on one of the longer ends.


They tell me they have other products in varying stages of production with a new product launch planned for our Pop Up Preview booth at this year’s SHOT Show.
