Solo Cook Kit

rated 4.5 of 5 stars It is an outstanding set. The black anodized finish holds up well. Yeah, it heats well and I'm not afraid of crushing it by accident by misspacking. I work with Boy Scouts and I would even let them use it without much fear of it being destroyed. I use it with my alcohol stove and can boil water in about 5 minutes depending upon altitude and temperature. I enjoy this a great deal. It is versatile strong and does good work. I even enjoy the appearance of the black anodized surface. Holds up well,… Full review

Golden Hiking Boots

rated 4 of 5 stars I bought these at Big 5 for $29. I doubt they'll last as long as boots costing ten times the price, but for the price you can't beat them. They weigh only a pound. They weigh only a pound but are quite comfortable on the trail and stable. I never slip or slide, even on wet rocks or sand. Don't waste money on more expensive boots unless you plan to hike Mt Everest. Don't be an equipment snob with the latest brand name stuff. A tent is a tent. Boots are boots.  Stop trying to impress other hikers… Full review

5-person Instant Dome Tent

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Price was just under $80, so it is not bad for the money. Barely large enough for our queen sized air mattress. Quick and easy to set up. We couldn’t get enough tension on the tent to open the zippered door with one hand. Two hands were needed each time. There are only the corners to stake down the tent, leaving the sides a little baggy and tension less because of this. Recently, I bought a Coleman 5-person Instant Dome Tent at Costco. Price was just under $80 so it is not bad for the money. But,… Full review

Peak 1 Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars Still going strong after 38 years! Replaced with Coleman Compact Dual Fuel Stove Model 533. I am sure this review applies to the new model as well...they are exactly the same except for the tank design. I think the newer wider base with no legs might be better. As other reviewers of this same stove have commented "it's bomb proof". It on: I bought this in 1979. I used a few years and then stuck it in a shed, outside, half full of fuel in 1990. It has been in temperatures from 15°F to… Full review

Expandable Water Carrier - 5 Gallon

rated 1 of 5 stars I used two Coleman Expandable Water Carriers (five gallon) to take with me on a camping trip in a conservation area where there was no sources of clean water, in August when it was extremely hot. I was really disappointed with the bags for several reasons. They are made of fairly thin plastic and "rolled around" in the back of my SUV while I was driving. They were difficult to fill with water at home and unwieldy when trying to carry or move them. They always rolled over onto the spigot no matter… Full review
