Cascade 5200

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Nice pack for the price, roomy. Good for long term backpacking. Held all my gear for a 10-day trip plus 5 days food. In preparation for a 10-day trek to Philmont, the Boy Scout backpacking paradise in NE New Mexico, I purchased a Cascade 5200. We did two long weekend training trips in Kansas and finally our big trip in New Mexico. The pack was roomy, held all my gear and at one time 5 days worth of food. The zippers were large and sturdy. The zippers held up well and didn’t catch on the material. Full review

Zephyr 1.0

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a great little one-person tent. I have had this tent for a while and have only used it a couple handfuls of times when flying solo. This is my backup tent or the tent that gets loaned out when someone doesn't have a need to fit two. I picked it up for really cheap on a discount site because I couldn't stand not buying it. I am 5'8" medium frame and it can fit me, my sleeping bag/pad, and a 60 liter pack with little room to spare. It's a cozy tent by all standards. It sets up in 2 minutes… Full review

Desert Pine -20

rated 4 of 5 stars A warm, but heavy, bag at a good price. I've only used this bag once, under the stars on my porch, after having to cancel a Scout overnight due to dangerous roads. The temperature started around the 20s and the low was 16°F with windchill bringing it down to single digits. It wasn't snowing, but a lot of snow was blowing around.  I slept on a 2" self-inflatable air-mat and wore Polartec Powerdry expedition-weight base layer top and bottom, a Polartec Thermal Pro fleece jacket, a knit acrylic hat,… Full review

Zephyr 2.0

rated 5 of 5 stars For Scouts, it's the lightest double-wall tent I found in its price range. Setup:  It's very easy to set up and free-standing. Two long poles crisscross over the middle and a small pole helps spread the roof. The biggest inconvenience are the sleeves at the top of the tent. The rest attaches with clips. The fly buckles to the tent with adjustable straps. A minimum of two stakes are necessary to create the vestibules with the fly.  Stability: The tent pitches tautly and is stable in the wind.

Zephyr 2.0

rated 5 of 5 stars Great tent for moderate to warm weather. This is a great tent for summer camping/backpacking. I have taken this tent on a couple of weekend backpacking trips and it fits in my pack with all the rest of my gear. I have used it just for me, and have had a tent mate, and there was still sufficient space for both of us. It breathes really well, which is great in the heat, but is essentially a 60 degree + outdoor temperature tent. If it gets much cooler outside you would want something with a little… Full review
