Rest Easy Pad

rated 4 of 5 stars Not as bad as some reviews make it out to be. Just bought a Coleman Easy-Rest blue foam pad. It was $4 at Runnings, when I went back a couple weeks later to get it, it was $9.99. It measures at 71.5"x24"x3/8", 11.5 oz. without packaging (claimed wt. of 8 oz.). Tried it on a very cold concrete garage floor (18°F). It has noticeable R-value (more than expected :-), and no real hard spots, even on my side, I'm 180 lbs. It rolls down to 5 3/4" diameter (non compressed). It cuts 2 lbs off of my current self-inflating… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars It is great for three-season camping and packs down small enough to fit on a bike rack. I bought mine years ago and have camped with it several times. I found it to be great for fitting on my bike pannier rack with my bike packing tent and inflatable mattress. For comfort in extreme cold, I've bought a silk liner to add another season rating, but haven't needed to use it...yet. Full review

Feather 442 Dual Fuel Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars It still works! I purchased this stove in 1989 and used it extensively for 10 years in heat, wet, and cold...then I got married and lost it in a box. On a recent camping trip I dug this thing out and blew the dust off of it. It still had fuel in it...about a half tank. I pumped it up, turned it on, and what do you know, the thing still worked like a champ. Used it for four days without a hitch. In one word, this thing is bulletproof. I've been looking at all of these new fancy canister stoves and… Full review

Sportster Dual Fuel II

rated 5 of 5 stars Very reliable. Low simmer to full power. Easy to use. Powerful. I have used this stove for a few years without problem. I wish it were somewhat smaller and lighter. The flame control is great from simmer to full out high. I have cooked hamburgers, soup, and also done some dehydrated meals. I have used it with a small percolator with no problem. It boils fast. It's fairly stable with pots. I like its simplicity and toughness, but it is heavy. Full review

8-Person Instant Tent

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Leaks in moderate to heavy rain and tent corners break easily. If someone could make them out of metal it would be a great tent. Used camping, worked good, setup was easy. Then the deluge hit and the tent folded sideways, broke three joints.  With all the comments found researching this part why doesn't Coleman either make these available and affordable or make them better?
