    Luke! Huge fan man, I appreciate all your hard work giving us top shelf reviews.. Had a quick question for you. I was looking to pick up the Ionosphere. What would you recommend for a slightly smaller build? Love how bombproof the Ion seems to be built. Similar durability and packability would be ideal.. Hope you enjoyed your trip to Co, I used to live in Vail..

    Why can't you just put the tent part in over the ground cloth and trade poles and clip it all it in still together !

    This tent is difficult, cumbersome and not at all workable... Sucks!!!! Complicated!!! No room!!!!

    I have been rocking the Litefighter 1 for three years now. Used it along with the Hunker 1 on a 15,000 mile road trip up to AK. Love the LF 1, especially on the cot. That is one setup you did not include. It is designed to sit on a USMIL green cot. I STRONGLY recommend using the ground fly to help prevent aluminum edges from wearing the tent tub down.

    Luke is the kind of dude, that every neighbor needs if and when shtf!! I hope there's a "luke" within 2miles of me cuz nobody in my house will know what to do but grab their phones. Which of course probably won't work and they're left wondering why. Thanks, Luke I been learning a lot from you! I know that you're a skilled hiker but your also a survivalist too.

      W ALKERONE 27 days ago

      Luke , like most others who have prepared, haven't stocked up for the neighborhood. He will be at Lone Wolf Mtn to try to keep his family away from all those who have not prepared. Prepare for the worst or expect to be on your own. Really. When it comes to your's not a joke.

    3D printed thin durable plastic structure that you can roll up in one direction then unroll and bend in the other direction to form a ridged arch. That you can slip into T's inside the tent to get rid of those poles. Design the main body of the tent out of thick durable water proofed lycra material. Very lightweight and you can fit it into a thigh holster. 🥴👍

    Cool surplus if you can find it cheap. 4+ lbs for a 1 person tent is heavy. 'hooch' can be done with any x-frame tent if you are willing to take the time to customize a tarp with grommets.

    Nice looking tent and great instructional video, Luke. I love the subdued colors of the camo, too. This would be an ideal tent for stealth camping. After watching many of your videos I'm inspired to get out and camp. Just made reservations at a beautiful state park with a site right on the lake's edge to try out all the new gear accumulated in the last month...tent, air mattress, tarp, camp grill , stove, and even my own porta-potty. The last time I camped at this site I caught enough fish to feed the campers in the entire quadrant of the lake. After testing all the gear in a controlled setting then I'll hit all the primitive sites I know. Being retired I can now do what I love doing the most..full time!

    Sweet! I'm gonna get one very soon! I've been using the ORC-ICS one man for years now and its a great tent but i want something a little lighter and multicam camo is was nicer than older ACU digital (stealth camping). I have compared multicam to four other camos in many situations and multicam just disappears just about anywhere its amazing! The pole structures between the ORC & litefighter are very similar. But the lite fighters poles are all one piece "Spider" lol (nice feature)! I also like the double vestibule too where as the ORC only has one. I was a little concerned with the amount of room though? Looks like theirs plenty of head clearance but the width is no more than the width of a cot?..Although the two vestibules can help to store the gear you cant fit inside with you. The ORC is pretty clammy inside in semi wet conditions! where the litefighter has more mesh which means more breathability! The ORC is really waterproof though! I'm hoping the litefighter does well in that respect! Sold lol..Thanks alot for the setup vid Luke! Hike on!

    I just spent a month in Romania using this exact tent, placed on a military cot. If you have any strong winds it does not hold up well especially if it rains. The inside does hold water very well though.

    Not really unique, many freestanding tents have the capability to be set up with the ground sheet (foot print), poles & fly only configuration, including my REI 2-person tents.

  • Shashkin's Cozy Survival

    Hey Luke! Wow-wow! Ground sheet for ground sheet! You knew I've just bought a tent with the ground sheet included and just didn't want to equal me, so you've nailed it! :D

  • daniel bernier
    daniel bernier Month ago

    Hi Luke love the videos was wondering which tent would recommend between this one the light fighter 1 or the eureka TCOP I like both but definitely value your opinion would be used for spring through fall and keep the videos coming

      W ALKERONE 27 days ago

      As the tcop is a 4 season tent at about 6 lbs.....I would think the L.F.1 would serve you better for no snow or really cold temps. But the tcop rocks. Colemans Military supply often has the tcop new in box for $199. on special. Just keep checking the site or get on their email list for sale sheets. As you may know, the tcop is a total black out and is 8 ft long x 42 in. wide. At 32 in. high it is stealthy. I love mine!

    Im a bit leary when items are advertised as being "Combat or Tactical". More often than not its just buzz words and a gimmik to sell cheap junk to those that have been in neither situation.
    Thanks for the vid and as akways a great review!✌🏻

    Hey Luke, I have a question for tents in general. When I wake up in my tent my eyes are strained and it is hard to see because of the colors of the tent. Is there a tent color out there that would reduce this effect? George

  • Red Cat Hat
    Red Cat Hat Month ago

    Just wondering where you would use the hastie hooch (did a spell that correctly?) set up? Seems like you would be just inviting the snakes, spiders and all the fun creatures to come hand out with you.

    • shcmoly
      shcmoly 29 days ago

      Meant to be done in the rain to keep your tent body dry. Can also leave the body at home to save weight when the skeeters are not out.

    Hi Luke! I just want you to know that your videos are how I decompress from work. I live in Wisconsin and don't outdoor nearly as much as I should! But I love you videos, your reviews and especially you crazy out in the woods in a winter storm videos. I appreciate your endurance, sir. Couldn't imagine doing that here in Wisco. Thank you for all your positive energy!

      I bought Snugpacks Bunker tent and it is Awesome. It's made incredible Durable. It's the tent that's made for the British military. If you take care of it, it'll last you a lifetime. I Live in Idaho, Weather patterns are extreme here. Brutal winters, Rains and winds. Tent has had 0 leaks,Tears,Rips or Fails.
      Good Luck
