Moji XP

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Works excellent when hanging. Best for car camping. This review is for the 2016 150-lumen Moji XP. I really like aspects of the Moji XP. It is elegantly simple. It seems very sturdy and well made. The light tint leans yellow instead of blue. But due to some flaws it is not an ideal lantern. Hanging above a picnic table the Moji XP it is excellent. The light output is bright enough to comfortably light a table. The warm even light is ideal for eating a late meal. The lantern is not bright enough… Full review

Voyager

rated 4 of 5 stars Compact and effective. Happy with it. My Voyager is a 2016 model with 140 lumen output from the lantern portion. I hung it beneath a dining fly above a picnic table. I was in a car camping environment for a long weekend.  The light works great hanging above a table, or in a large tent.  The lantern's output is not bright enough to light a whole campsite, but that is expected. My table top was comfortably lit and the surrounding area lit about as well as a campfire.  The best aspect of this lantern… Full review

Saga 40 Jetforce Avalanche Airbag Pack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great high end avalanche backpack that can be deployed multiple times. Best for single to multi-day backcountry expeditions and ski tours in alpine, medium to high risk conditions. If you only do a few days a year in these conditions, renting may be a more rational option. Excellent fit and carrying system for an avalanche pack. I'm a longer dude and got the M/L version. The hip belt has a metal buckle and is comfortable during longer ski tours. The volume is not accurate. It can probably hold around… Full review

Snaggletooth

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Good precision and grip, but slightly heavy. I bought them for mixed climbing routes with a lot of rock climbing involved and they proved very adequate for the task indeed. I used them with a pair of La Sportiva Baturas and they performed very well with great feeling and precision. However there was this incident on the downclimb when one of the crampons suddenly came off without particular reason. I had them fitted really hard, so I don't know what happened but since then I am a bit cautious. Full review

HiLight

rated 4 of 5 stars Bought this tent for solo winter camping and for emergency shelter. It weighs 2.8 lbs and is described as a 1-2 person. In the den it was a challenge, but in the wind it is downright frustrating. The tent is like a parachute because you have to go inside to install the poles. I'll be spending some time practicing setting up the tent. This tent is a one-person tent! I have a 6-foot Western Mountaineering sleeping bag rated for -25 degrees. It took 3/4 of the tent and it would almost touch the tent… Full review
