    I heard Federal Reserve chairman William Powell say the Fed was against hiking this year.

    100% agree. I like (relatively empty) shelters, dislike wet tents. But I would never hit the trail without a tent.

    I should have added that I don’t use hiking poles either, so the weight savings from dual use aren’t there for me.

    Not sure the scientific rigor behind some of these claims, but the gist holds true for me. But you have to be open to it.

    Any performance difference? REI shows a .4oz weight delta or 6%, same price.
