Velocity 1 Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars Great tent for when you have to sleep alone. I bought this tent to add to my backpacking arsenal because I was tired of carrying around a 2-person tent when most times I end up going solo. By doing so I shed over 2 lbs and reduced the volume it took up in my pack. It is only available at EMS as it's their store branded product. SO if you are not near an EMS and unable to review a unit before purchase that might be an important consideration. (I strongly recommend seeing a demo or at least a packaged… Full review

Thunderhead Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars The Thunderhead Jacket is a lightweight, waterproof, and windproof jacket suitable for use in all seasons. The rollaway hood is easily accessible and doesn't fill up with rain if you'd rather wear a rain hat. Exterior pockets are large and easy to access. Long pit zips help ventilate even in warmer weather. I bought my EMS Thunderhead Jacket about a year ago because I needed a lightweight, waterproof and windproof shell for 4-season use. It's completely waterproof, and the pit zips allow for excellent… Full review

Impulse Hydration Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars Perfect companion for hiking, trekking, climbing, bicycling, skiing, mountaineering. I bought it a year ago and since then it became my partner in all my endeavors. I even could not expect that its functionality extends beyond usual description. Consider it as good backpack. It big enough to contain lunch sandwich, raincoat, headlight, maps, photo camera,  compass, wallet and, yes, 2-liter water bladder. What else do you need for a day hike? It is very easy. You know, weight is important, especially… Full review

North Star Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars Great tent - long life. My backpacking experience is limited to Mid-Atlantic USA (PA, NY, NJ, DE, WV), but I have camped year round and this tent is a stalwart companion. It's well ventilated in the sun, yet offers enough protection to keep out most downpours.  A seriously driving rain will get through, but I have yet to encounter a tent that will prevent that. The elastic cords inside the poles wore out after about 8 years but they were easily replaced with aftermarket cord I bought on Amazon. … Full review

Star 3 Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars We all know that a choice in tents is a very personal experience. We all have prefferences that differ as much as our personalities. This is why my 3-person, 3-season pick is the EMS Star 3 tent. I love having front and back doors on this tent. Convenience of entry is key, not to mention great ventilation. It can get very sticky here in the East Coast summers. The Star 3 is roomy, easy to set up, 1 person-5mins. and has plenty of stake out / tie down points to keep it on the ground. After a 40+… Full review
