Most of you know that each month (starting now) we’re selecting one online reader to test gear for the magazine, based in part on how many points that reader has earned. We’re pleased to announce that this month’s pick is Del in KS!

Del is currently our top online reader-contributor and has racked up 53970 points in the two months since our new site went live. We picked him based on both the quantity (which is prodigous) and the quality (which is excellent) of the comments he’s made on our blogs and articles, the questions he’s answered in our Answers tool, his participation in our message boards, and the photographs he’s posted to the Trophy Room. In recognition of this, we’re sending him four tents (worth $200-$300 each) to test for the magazine (he gets to keep them after he’s done). Look for his reviews in the July issue. The tents are …

MSR Hubba Hubba Tent (shown above)
Eureka Mountain Pass 2XTE
LL Bean Mountain Light Tent 2
Coleman Exponent TYL X2 Tent
