20 Degree Sleeping Bag

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Don't buy this. The stuffing rips out easily and the zipper broke just after a few months in light use. Without the zipper the bag is useless. They need to put more money into the zipper! Don't buy. Full review

Mesa 8 Tent with Screen Porch

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Good design...poor execution. I bought the tent new. Following the instructions, tried to erect the tent. One of the corner brackets broke. Even though this unit doesn't use standard tension rods, the theory of the support is similar. Unfortunately, the brackets are plastic, and cannot take the tension as designed. The store wouldn't take it back saying I had done something wrong. Factory replacement parts seem unavailable, as customer service is non-existent. Buy something else! Full review

45-degree Micro Lite Mesa Rec Bag

rated 4.5 of 5 stars An inexpensive hybrid design sleeping bag that works great in warm weather.

I am also a stomach sleeper (one leg bent), so a skinny bag (mummy) wasn't going to cut it for me. In reality, almost anything was going… Full review

Gator V Sandals

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I've purchased two pairs of these sandals and both fell apart in under three months. Never again! Cheapest on the planet! What ever happened to quality control in this country? I also will never shop at Sports Authority because they don't stand behind the crappy crap they sell. Full review

Ghille V

rated 2 of 5 stars I liked the shoes very much, but the soles split on the bottom. Both my earlier pairs lasted 2 years and still looked new when the sole failed. I'm on my 3rd pair. I love the shoes except the sole has about a two-year lifespan before one of the shoe soles will get a horizontal crack where it binds.This pair will be my last if their lifespan is so short. They are usually just worn on weekends and vacations. The first two both had their blowout at bad times on vacation. It's a shame that the sole… Full review
