Teton Sports Mountain Ultra Tents – Gear Review


During the summer 2014 Teton Sports launched a brand new tent line called the Mountain Ultra. This line of four different sizes of tents can accommodate those who are looking for a single person up to a four person family.

The tents all have the same construction set up instructions and overall concept.  What sets these tents apart from many of the others is their very interesting ridge pole system. Designed to give you a wider ceiling and vestibules. The micro mesh tent will give you 360 degree views of your campsite, but if you would prefer a little more privacy or weather protection simply snap on the provided rain fly.  The rain fly creates a nice vestibule area to stow your gear from the elements.

The 2,3, and 4 person tents have two doors to easily enter the tent from either side. Mesh gear pockets to store your gear for easy access during the night. Extra high walls in the bathtub floor help prevent water from entering the tent even in the most severe storms.

What is in the bag? The tents come with the inner tent, rain fly, footprint, stakes, and aluminum poles.


 Why we like these tents!

The biggest positive thing about these tents is that they are built with the average person in mind. Easy to set up and use, easy to pack up, and are light weight. They are perfect for backpacking, car camping, and everything in between. The prices are great for the quality of the product you are getting in both the manufacturing and the materials used in the tents.  (More after the photos)

The tents are incredibly roomy with plenty of head room to be able to move around comfortably while camping alone or with others. Specifically designed pass-through ventilation technology clears away condensation.  These tents are a huge asset to the Teton Sports gear arsenal to get the everyday Joe camper, backpacker, and car camper outfitted with low cost quality gear.

#AdventureMonday 1/5/2015

Welcome to the first #AdventureMonday post of 2015. If you would like to have your photo featured all you have to do is tag your photos with #hikingthetrail. Happy Adventuring and enjoy the photos that were shared this past week.


2014 Ended with and bang and 2015 is only going to be more exciting.

There is that old camp song that goes a little something like this “second verse same as the first a little bit louder and a little bit worse”.  Lets change that a bit to be more fitting for 2015 shall we? “Second verse same as the first a little bit louder and a whole lot more awesome!”

Looking on back at 2014 there were just so many amazing things that happened.

Travel#Omnigames in Park City Utah, Shot Show in Las Vegas, Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City Utah, Hell Hike and Raft in Idaho, and Two trips back to the Midwest. I put over 4000 miles on the Jeep in just big trips let alone all the local driving around. Then you throw in the airline miles and it has been a very busy travel year. I know for a fact that 2015 is going to supersede 2014 by leaps and bounds.

FRIENDS FRIENDS and MORE FRIENDS! – What a year of reconnecting with old friends, meeting new friends, gaining new online friends and gaining new trail family members. I can not emphasize enough how amazing the outdoor community both online and offline.  Thank you all for allowing me to be a part of your adventures and being in mine. I look forward to more crazy antics in 2015.

Epic Social Adventures is running full steam ahead and at time it seems that we can not keep the fire stoked quick enough with the awesome moment we are gaining.

Hiking The Trail has again had an amazing year thanks to each and everyone who reads along and participates with all of the crazy that is my adventure.

So much already in the works for 2015, but why spoil all the surprises now and leave you with some suspense. I will leave you with five of my 2015 goals.

1. Adventure More!

2. Meet up with more people for adventures!

3. Blog More!

4. Enjoy everything more!
