Man isn’t meant to stay indoors — our weekly “Trekking” column can attest to that. It’s a column dedicated to the adventurer inside of all of us, the one pining to ditch the office humdrum for a quick surf session or seven-week jaunt in the Grand Tetons. One day we may highlight an ultra-light stove and the next a set of handmade canoe paddles. Life doesn’t just happen inside the workplace, so get outside and live it.
“High and mighty” isn’t a phrase we typically associate with camping, or at least not the equipment we use to do so. It is applicable when talking about the lightweight Nubé 2.0 Hammock Shelter ($275) though, particularly when you consider that the 3-pound package is designed take you directly from the forest floor and into the leaf-peppered throngs of the canopy itself (ladder not included).
