Wanna camp in the trees, but need to stay cool? Then the Tentsile T-Mini mesh might be just what you've been looking for. - GJ editor Adam tested it out and had this to say "Unlike its other products, however, Tentsile’s T-Mini is mesh. Not only will debris and sand fall through, but it’s more breathable than the larger Trillium hammock." - For full review and details go here: https://gearjunkie.com/tentsile-mesh-t-mini-hanging-hammock ☝️link in profile - And big thanks to @linkedringphotography and @tentsile for the awesome capture!
