Top Pick Award
We found the TACT to be best suited for very occasional emergency use.
The Alpine offers superior storm protection without any frills.
The AC combines light weight material with clever design, making it well suited for any environment.
While the BD Bipod is quite functional, it isn't without a few frustrating aspects.
Even though it doesn't have a pole or stuff sack, and it was the heaviest model we tested, it still performed well.
