Wild Country Zephyros 2 Compact Tent Review

As much as I love a huge family, multi-room, house like tent – you’ve got to love a small, compact tent. It’s brilliant to have a lightweight tent that can easily be carried on the trail and packed in your backpack. The Wild Country Zephyros 2 Tent has some great light weight credentials: on the scales it comes in at just 1.9kg, this makes the tent really easy to carry when backpacking. With the measuring stick, when the tent is…

Climbing Mount Triglav, Slovenia 2864m Part Two

Hopefully you’ve already part one of this three part adventure – if not you should probably go back and check it out first.
