Editor's Notes

November 13, 2018:

In a category like this, size and weight are usually pretty big factors, but priority was also placed on durability, particularly on a given model's ability to be effective year-round, which is why the Cura Tri Luxury fared so well. Eddie Bauer's model earned a high place for a similar reason, and a lack of resilience to cold and wet cost the normally reliable Coleman brand a few spots.

Daniel Imperiale holds a bachelor’s degree in writing, and proudly fled his graduate program in poetry to pursue a quiet life at a remote Alaskan fishery. After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
