A backpacking shelter is meant to provide comfort by keeping you relatively dry and warm-ish. This class will focus primarily on tents, but will also touch on hammocks, tarp tents, and shelters. Different types of tents and the pros and cons of various features will be discussed.
This event is part of our Virtual Outing series! Join us on July 2nd at 7:30 PM.
