Backcountry Palace

Had a chance to test the Six Moon Designs Lunar Duo Explorer in the backcountry last week. They call this the “Backcountry Palace”, and I’ll be putting out a full review of this shelter shortly.  Looking a for a shelter that is big on space, light in your pack, and full of flexibility?  This one deserves a serious look. This thing is huge….. more than comfortable for 2 people (by backpack tent Sea to Summit Ultralight Pad, Six Moon Designs Lunar Duo, Elightened Equipment Quiltstandards) and comes in at 2.5lbs! You can set it up with trekking poles(The S&S Archery poles were a perfect combo with this shelter….see my Trekking Pole Review here) or your choice of carbon or aluminum poles which can be purchased through Six Moon Designs. I also had the opportunity to test out an Enlightened Equipment Quilt along with the Sea to Summit – Outdoor Gear Comfort Plus pad.
