Review: Crua Hybrid Tent

When sleeping solo, I’ve always preferred a hammock—except when it’s raining, in which case a tent is the superior option. Crua’s Hybrid puts the best of both into a single, choose-your-own-elevation package. On the ground, it’s a one-man tent, with headroom, bug screen, rainfly, guy lines, all the usual features. Except this—attached fore and aft are burly straps for slinging the Hybrid between two trees, and huge side-panels for open-air enjoyment. Win-win.

Available online and at area stores; $269.
