My lovely wife who is new to backpacking asked me to find a tent/sleeping system for her. She prefers an enclosed tent to keep bugs and critters away. I'll generally be sleeping in my hammock, but it will be nice to also have the tent for backup either for myself or our 4 year old daughter who will come with us occasionally.
She also has back problems due to moderate/severe scoliosis, so comfort will be key to her enjoyment of the experience.
I spent some time on the REI web site and this tent, sleeping pad and bag looked pretty good for 3 season camping in the Appalachians. Does anyone have an opinion on them?
I'd love to hear more about them before we lay out this sort of cash.
