Any hiker who has ever been caught in an unexpected rainstorm knows the value of preparation. Under The Weather helps outdoor adventurers do just that with its Pop-Up Backpacking Tents designed for one to two people to stay dry and warm whenever and wherever they need shelter.


These individual pod tents come in a convenient travel case that carries like a backpack and are easy to unpack and pop up in seconds. There is virtually no assembly required as the tent unfolds and pops up into a fully functioning tent for one. You can place your tent upright for sitting in or lay it on the ground for sleeping, making it ideal for use as an emergency shelter during a storm or as a sleeping tent for one while camping.


The tent is easy to carry at only seven pounds and comes with a set of ground stakes so it can be easily anchored. It is wind resistant and water resistant and provides a much warmer temperature inside the fully-enclosed pod with a sun protection of UPF 50. With three clear sides it is easy to keep an eye on your surroundings while staying warm and dry inside your pod.


The original, single-person pop-up tent comes in 12 fun colors and retails here for a starting price of $99.99 with larger options for two to four people available for an additional cost.

Review: Bobby’s Free Speakeasy, Barcelona, Spain

As the speakeasy hype continues to take the world by storm, Barcelona opened its fair share of clandestine watering holes, which you’ll only know about with some prior research. A simple barbershop in Eixample (near Plaça Catalunya) is seemingly inconspicuous, but, upon entry, it’s easy to tell the hair salon isn’t just a place to get your ears lowered.
