Storm

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Nice quality, very bright, and well made. This is a great light that's a bit on the heavy side but has a good burn time. Controls aren't very intuitive, but easy enough to figure out with some time. I was looking for a heavy duty light that uses commonly available batteries, throws a bright beam, and has a long battery life.  This fits the bill.  It's fairly heavy, I have a much smaller and lighter headlamp that works well for small tasks around camp but the Black Diamond Storm is bright enough… Full review

Magnum 16 Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars The Black Diamond Magnum 16 is daypack that can take abuse, hold enough gear for a savy overnighter. It has just the right ammount of features at a doable price point. It comes from a company with one of the best warranties I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. This little pack is perfect for the budget minded day hiker. It does everything one would expect from a pack this size while not breaking your budget.  If you're looking for a decent pack with a hard to beat price point, the black… Full review

Alpine Ergo Cork

rated 5 of 5 stars My first use of the poles was on the flat terrain of the Florida Trail. Lightweight, they didn't do much or cause a problem, so meh. Then I section hiked the AT, what a help!

Then, at night, they double as poles for my rain-fly. All in all, the best pole for my money I have ever bought. I am a novice hiker that is… Full review

Trail Pro Shock

rated 4.5 of 5 stars All around great product—five stars. These poles are great. Easy to adjust. Great shock absorbers. Great support. Carbon interchangeable tips. Best on the market. Full review

Spot

rated 5 of 5 stars Great headlamp with strong beam, and good battery life. Has battery meter, and and is highly water resistant; it's waterproof unless submerged. Can be locked to prevent it from turning on in a pack. I love this headlamp. It's waterproof, has many features, the best of which is the ability to lock it in the off position. I don't have to turn batteries around to prevent the headlamp from turning on while in my backpack. The battery life is very good; just remember to set it to low whenever possible… Full review
