Tis' the season to stock up on some new gear. What's on everybody's wish lists? I'm thinking about a new headlamp for starters. The Black Diamond ReVolt is tempting. I really dig the idea of being able to top of the batteries in between trips.

So what are you wishing for? Don't forget to post a link. :)

Hillebergs are decent tents. But the Rainbow is a lb lighter, more room. ...... and about half the cost. Not sure that Hilleberg model really being 4 season tho

I have one and like it. Only downside in my mind is that it doesn't achieve maximum brightness with the rechargeable batteries. On the plus side, I can charge it off my car stereo's USB port while in the field.

Still looking for the best deal on a big Agnes Fly Creek UL2. I'm hoping i'll end up in the money in my fantasy football league this year so I can make a few big upgrades.

Not really planning on anything for the holidays, but I'm planning on getting a Copper Spur UL3 next year with my REI dividend for Diane and I.

That's my plan too, except a UL2 probably.

I already have the UL1 for myself, and it works great for that. We liked the extra room of the UL3 (plus it's rectangular footprint...it's not tapered like the UL1 & UL2) and it's still over a pound lighter than our current 2-person backpacking tent.

If I didn't already have the UL1, I'd probably consider the UL2 for just myself, though :)

Coper Spurs weigh a bit more than I'd like..... Code for $45 off the Spur at Backcountry dot com: 5BT-1-EGNQX. Works on some stuff not on others.

They are the best true freestanding tents I've come across. Of course, I'm always willing to carry a little extra weight for comfort and ease of setup.

Thanks for the code, but I should have a pretty big dividend from REI in the spring that should cover the tent :)

Well I'm hoping to buy both. The tarptent for the summer, and the Akto for the shoulder seasons. Mainly late springs and falls around Yellowstone and Glacier. I have a large 3 man Hilleberg, and have mixed opinions of it. The double walls really make it a warm tent, and its sturdy enough for where I plan to take it. I'm not sure how much I trust the Tarptent in winter weather. I'm sure they will hold up, but how comfortable will it be. I've never used one, but have hiked with others who love them.
