- Tester Application:
Date of Application:
I would like to apply to test the Golite Hex2. I currently use a Eureka Timberline, obviously not a member of the ultralight club! I did envy a fellow camper last year in Alaska who used a pyramid style shelter. I most likely would not have the opportunity to use a typical test strategy, go out and use it on a multiday backpacking trek. I would testing in the backyard and while cabin camping. I would then add the Golite Hex2 to my search and rescue field pack for packing and carrying testing. These testing opportunities would be during all types of weather.
A secondary use for this type of shelter for me would be during all day search team training exercises, it would be convenient to set up and allow myself, gear and dogs to get out of the weather or sun in-between activities. I was impressed with the Golite customer service during the recent pack test and would really like to take part testing a piece of Golite gear. If not picked as a tester I would also like to be considered for test monitor.
I have read and will comply with the report requirements of the BGT Survival Guide.
