VapourLight Hyper Smock 2.0

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Preliminary review: Not as light as advertised. This is a preliminary review. I'll update it once I've gotten to use it a bit.

Berghaus states a claimed weight of 75g for a men's large on their website and on the product's tag. The men's large the I received weighs 95g without the stuff sack (5g). Irritating. Full review

Wilderness 65+15

rated 5 of 5 stars A comfortable and capacious 65+15 litre rucksack with adjustable back system, front access to main compartment, and expanding side pockets.

If you want a jacket with more functionality, find a jacket with a couple more features and a couple… Full review

Expedition Light 80

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Berghaus Expedition Light 80 is a large capacity pack with a lightweight design. It has a surprisingly supportive suspension system which provides comfort in the hips and shoulders. It has a low, stable profile, even while strapping everything from skis to my dog's pack to the outside. It can be warm during hot days. I would recommended the Expedition Light to backpackers and mountaineers looking for a large capacity pack that is functional with heavy loads in the 50 plus pound range all seasons… Full review
