For the would-be roof top tent buyer, the first of many purchasing decisions is whether to by one of the dozens of soft shell tents on the market, or to take the hefty financial… read more »

Gear Scout: LED Lenser SEO 7R

Over the last several months I have been evaluating many of the newer headlamps to hit the market.
