I'm testing the SuperShelter for Backpackgeartest.org and I'd love to
here more about what kind of info you'd find useful. I of course
write my reviews according to what I think is important but I
certainly want my work to help others as well, so your input would be
very interesting and valued.
Thanks in advance.
