Therm-a-Rest NeoAir AirTap Pump Kit

A simple and effective, high-volume inflation device. Overpriced for what it is, but cheaper than the alternatives. A relatively inexpensive, lightweight, and simple… Full Review »

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

I love the weight and speed of this cook system. Every time I go backpacking with friends I end up boiling water for everyone. I can boil a cup of water by the… Full Review »

Alpine Design 45 Degree Micro Lite Mesa Hybrid Rec

An inexpensive hybrid design sleeping bag that works great in warm weather. Would be a perfect lightweight option for emergency equipment in a vehicle as well as… Full Review »

HALO Pocket Power StarLight 3000

I used it one time. It would not recharge. Full Review »

Salomon Men's Speedcross 3 GTX

This is my new favorite trail running/light hiking shoe. It is extremely lightweight, has perfect flex in the sole, and provides plenty of support. The Gore-tex… Full Review »

Armada JJ

Bottom Line: The Armada JJ is a really fun ski. It floats well at 115 underfoot, but with such early taper and rocker it has a really surfy feeling. It really can… Full Review »

Armada Magic J

This is hands down one of the best big mountain powder slayers on the market. It is extremely versatile given its width, and Armada nailed the flex profile in the… Full Review »

Salomon Rocker2 108

Awesome lightweight, extremely versatile, stiff touring ski that you can use all day inbounds. These are an awesome touring ski for someone that is looking for… Full Review »

Merrell Men's Continuum

I think these shoes were designed without a practical purpose and purely for aesthetics. They're not as good as other water based adventure shoes out there, they… Full Review »

Big Agnes Pumphouse

The BA Pumphouse is too low-volume to be a good inflation device, and that property is the main feature that differentiates it from any other lightweight, waterproof,… Full Review »

DeFeet Blaze

Don't let the name put you off, these socks can be worn all year round, but especially stand out in the colder months. An all around great sock. I've used this… Full Review »

Altra Men's Olympus

For zero drop fans, this is a fantastic shoe for long, grinding runs or when you need some recovery cush. I've taken this shoe through mud, rocks, roots and it… Full Review »

Kelty Men's SB 20

I would highly reccomend this sleeping bag. It was warm, and the head and foot box will always be dry. Dri-Down is an excellent advantage over the normal down. Full Review »

Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Day Pack

A minimal day pack for short side trips on longer backpacking trips. No promises on comfort, and it is not very durable or waterproof, but that's reasonable given… Full Review »

Marker Griffon 13 Binding

Pretty horrible option for the price. Not durable, low elasticity, very high stack. Plastic. A beginner would like this binding. I am not really sure why you would… Full Review »

POC Lobes

These are the best goggles. They don't fog up easily. The lens is easily removable. The frameless design has inspired a lot of copy cats. The peripheral vision… Full Review »

Atomic Blog

I was using these as my touring ski for a while. They would have been cool 6 years ago, but now they are just kind of... lame. I was using these as my touring ski… Full Review »

Atomic Tracker 16

I truly forget I am on an AT binding when I am skiing these inbounds. Out of bounds, they are awesome. Easier to use than the Duke. Don't get jammed up as easily. Full Review »

Salomon Guardian WTR 16
