Vixen 22L

rated 4 of 5 stars Light, comfortable day pack designed for women. Ample pockets for water bottles, poles, camera etc. on side, top, and back of pack as well as the waist belt. Love that load is kept off the back! Pack is extremely comfortable, even with a full load. Accommodates a bladder inside or water bottles on sides of pack. Zippered top pouch and two pouches on the belt. Great overall day pack. Full review

Omni-Heat Sleeping Bag Liner

rated 4 of 5 stars Magical little silver dots in a lightweight package in a 10 oz. large grapefruit package promise added warmth. And those little silver dots pretty much deliver as advertised. In my last overnighter I was comfortable at 55° using a 40° under quilt in my hammock.

Silver Ridge Convertible Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars These pants are are very lightweight and durable. They are also very comfortable. These pants are great. I bought them for camping and hiking, but find myself wearing them on the regular.

On a hike recently, I was getting caught in all kinds of thorns and I just plowed through and the pants don't… Full review

Watertight Jacket

rated 3 of 5 stars This is a solid jacket for wet conditions, but it still has room for improvement. I like the way it compacts into its built in stuff sack and fits a little big so that I can add layers underneath it when it's cold. I would recommend this jacket for those who want to spend a few weekends in the great outdoors throughout the year or for anyone who wants a cool looking rain jacket to wear around town. I give this a 3 star rating mainly because of its ability to keep you dry in the rain. It works, but… Full review

Whidbey II Water Short

rated 4 of 5 stars The Columbia Whidbey II shorts are a fantastic pair of shorts that are quite versatile. Whether you are hiking, swimming, or playing a sport, these shorts will keep you going and keep you cool! I bought these shorts this past spring and have worn them A LOT this spring and summer! These shorts are a well-fitting and relaxed pair of shorts with an elastic waist and built-in belt. You can keep them comfortably fitting or cinch them down if the trail gets rugged or you need to dive into a swimming… Full review
