Crescent Lake 20

rated 4 of 5 stars The ALPS Mountaineering Crescent Lake +20F sleeping bag is warm and comfortable, relatively roomy, and retains its loft very well. It's one of the few sleeping bags I've ever used with an accurate temperature rating. I picked up this sleeping bag in late spring, but it was too warm to use until just about a month ago. In that time I've used it maybe 15 nights, in temps ranging from around 40°F to 16-18°F, and am pretty impressed with it. I like it enough that I bought an ALPS Mountaineering Echo… Full review

Zephyr 2.0

rated 4 of 5 stars A great tent for the price. Packs down smaller than my Sierra Designs Electron 2. Slightly narrower near foot, and a little less vestibule space. I bought with the deal flyer discount from Sierra Trading Post. A great low cost tent. Used it for the first time beach camping on Fire Island. A freestanding tent is necessary when pitching on sand. You'll also need sand/snow stakes. I used MSR stakes I got at REI. Tent performed great.  Full review

Jagged Peak 2

rated 4 of 5 stars A relatively lightweight, easy to set up tent with adequate room for two. The rain fly provides excellent protection, and a small and a large vestibule. The tent itself is very well ventilated, with two large screen doors, screen windows at each end, and two small triangular screened peak vents, all with zippered flaps to seal them up. This is the first lightweight tent I've owned, and I'm very happy with it. It sets up easily, has plenty of room inside (I've only used it solo), keeps the bugs out… Full review

Zephyr 2.0

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Going on my third year with this tent and it has performed better than expected. Great for two people and better if you're solo. My son and I recently backpacked a 7-day, 60-mile loop with the Boy Scouts in the Weminuche Wilderness in Colo. We had nice weather along with a few rainy days. Tent performed flawlesly. The two door vestibule is really nice as we each had our own entry and plenty of space to keep our backpacks.  No crawling over each other to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

Zephyr 2.0

rated 5 of 5 stars At a little over four pounds, the ALPS Mountaineering Zephyr 2.0 will scare away all the very weight conscious wimps, but the price, durability, and simplicity of its two-pole system, more than makes up for the weight, as far as I am concerned. I'd recommend Alps products as a nice alternative to anyone on an REI budget. I bought the Zephyr 2, for JMT #13, in 2013. It arrived just a few days before I took off and I didn't spend any time setting it up, but rather just accounted for all the parts… Full review
