Lynx 1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great one-person backpacking tent! I needed a small, lightweight, easy to set up on the fly tent for backpacking and this fit the bill perfectly. I have had no problems with its zippers, fly, poles, stakes, or seams. Stayed warm and dry. Had a couple trips this summer, rained a couple times and no leaks, woke up with frost/ice on the outside once this fall but stayed cozy and warm all night, didn't even realize how chill it was till I stepped outside. I am 5' 8" and 230 lbs. It's a bit difficult… Full review

Camp Pillow

rated 2 of 5 stars Why bother. Purchased a few years ago for dirt cheap, thinking I needed a pillow for my nights. Two stars is probably generous. Terrible structure. Does not pack down well, it's bulky. Definitely got what I paid for here. Full review

Zenith 3 AL Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great tent—easy to set up, roomy, and dry inside despite the weather. For a bomb-proof tent great for backpacking (even though it's not ultralight), you can't beat the Zenith for twice the price! I notice the review info denotes this tent as discontinued, and that's not entirely true. ALPS makes the Zenith for Sierra Trading Post, and it's intermittently available. Beyond that, ALPS also makes this same tent for other retailers under the Zephyr moniker. The Zephyr is readily available,… Full review

Featherlite Air Pad

rated 5 of 5 stars Comfortable for back or side sleeping, nice and light, super easy to inflate, and no headaches from blowing into the valve! What more can you ask for? This mattress is light (under 21oz), comfortable (3.5" thickness!), and inflates easily with the built-in CPR-style pump (65-75sec to inflate). I've slept a couple dozen nights on this, and I wouldn't go afield without it in the warmer months. It's no good for cold weather due to a lack of insulation, but for warmer temps, it's the best camp mattress… Full review

Lynx 2 AL

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Decent backpacking tent for getting into the backpacking world without breaking the bank. Bought this tent as my first backpacking tent. I had been family camping before but wanted something more suited for backpacking without breaking the bank. Easy to set up and stays taut as long as you set it up correctly. There was some condensation on it in the morning but nothing that couldn't be shaken off easily. At over 5 lbs, it is nowhere near ultra light, but it does the job. In the end, it will be… Full review
