Zephyr 2.0

rated 4 of 5 stars For the price, this tent is excellent. Easy to set up and pretty reliable when staked and guyed well, this is a great budget or beginner's tent. I have used this on multiple excursions, both for extended camping while fighting wildfires and for international backpacking trips in Mexico/Central America. I've never had problems in setting it up, even in the dark (provided I had a headlamp) thanks to its slightly asymmetrical design. On calmer nights, it is nice to have the insect mesh to see the stars,… Full review

Quadrant 4900

rated 5 of 5 stars A solid pack for the extended trip. Plenty of space with accessible pockets and an easy to get to rainfly make this a good pack. I have been using this pack for the better part of two years, and we go camping about once a month (weekends) and one week-long trip in the summer and one-week long trip in the winter. I have reduced my load considerably and the pack continues to deliver.   It is easy to wear, easily adjustable. I’m 6'4" and have found this to fit me nicely where other packs ride too… Full review

Sector 4200

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Well fitting, value conscious pack that is short on some details. This was my first high volume backpack since my military days 15 years ago. Purchased the ALPS Mountaineering Sector 4200 online from REI because of the price and in spite of some lacking features, notably pockets on the hip belt and shoulder straps. It is a comfortable pack at heavy weights. The load lifters and adjustable straps make for an easy carry whatever your pack weight. The hip belt in particular is solid and comfortable. Full review

Microfiber Mummy Liner

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a great liner at a much better price point than most. A must to protect and keep your bag clean. Perfect for summer trips, not much help for extra warmth. First things first, I bought this based on a Killer Review on Trailspace. It was super helpful, and there’s no way I could do better, and I agree with all of his points, so definitely check his review out: http://www.trailspace.com/gear/alps-mountaineering/microfiber-mummy-liner/?review=34340   My additional thoughts: Entry & Exit:… Full review

Chaos 2

rated 4 of 5 stars Fantastic tent, wish I didn't have to carry it. Can only recommend to those not looking to cut weight or plan on running headlong into a storm. I've used this tent on a JMT thru-hike and a variety of other short trips. I appreciated the crap out of it when we were stuck in random thunderstorms for days, but cannot stand how much it weighs. Setup is relatively straightforward and easy. Can be done under the rainfly to minimize water inside. Pitches beautifully as every freestanding tent should. … Full review
