During my trip to NEMO headquarters and our subsequent hike up Mount Washington in May, I got to play with the new Spring ’17 gear — there are a few pieces I am super excited about.

Here are a few of our favorite ultralight tents we saw at Outdoor Retailer last month that will be available in time for your spring long distance hiking adventures.
