In gear news, check out the new Mollusc Tent project. It opens like a clamshell and is made of durable, high quality materials. It’s sort of a semi-perma-tent, and at 50 pounds it’s not very light. But it is exceptionally cool, and can comfortably sleep 3 adults. There’s also a jumbo version that sleeps half a dozen people … so it’s basically a fabric dome-home. Check out Mollusc’s Kickstarter to buy the plans or the finished product.
