Save $200 on the Perfect Entry-Level Backpacking Tent


March 8, 2019 Deals By

Tentmakers employ their most advanced manufacturing processes and innovative materials to make shelters as packable and lightweight as possible. Backpackers are the primary demographic in mind here, but more casual adventurers — the type who head out for one or two nights rather than seven, or regularly make camp next to their car — form a more substantial proportion of those enjoying wilderness. Nemo’s Losi tent is for these folks, and right now it’s 40 percent off (a savings of $195) at Mountain Steals.

The Losi isn’t like the big-enough-to-stand-up-in tents you can find at Walmart, but neither is it an ounce-counting ultralight trekker’s dream shelter. Instead, it’s somewhere in the middle; small and light enough to carry in a backpack when weight isn’t paramount, yet roomy enough — thanks to a unique pole configuration — to enjoy hanging out in. It’s perfect for casual campers and those who want to balance their experiences at camp and on the trail, and nearly $200 in savings isn’t a discount to ignore.
