Travel Box II Plus

rated 5 of 5 stars Large bug net with a built-in floor for full protection. Great for use in shelters or under a tarp. Zippers on two sides make for easy access and lots of tie out points allow for setup in varied conditions. The Exped Travel Box II Plus is a souped up version of their basic, rectangular bug net, meant for multi-person use. They added a floor, side entry zippers, and some additional tie out points. The result is a very functional bug house that provides for a lot of protected space. I set it up in… Full review

Air Pillow UL

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Worked good for a few trips, but one night it just separated at the seam. Worked good for a few trips, but one night it just separated at the seam where the halves are hot glued together. Even with the included patch kit, it is not possible to repair an edge seam split. I won't be buying another one and don't recommend it. The price is too high for such a short lifetime. Full review

DownMat 9

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Hot stuff in cold weather. I am a small framed person (5'4", 140 lbs) and run cold. This mat is the only way to sleep if you run cold. I'm not using this for Everest like most users. I use it for temps just above freezing. Which is ridiculous. But if that's what you need, look no further.  Only downside is it's very narrow, so your elbows will be off the mat. Solution? A bag with enough down to coat a flock of geese. But other than that, if you have to pack for cold, don't go with synthetics for… Full review

MegaMat 10 LXW

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Exped MegaMat 10 LXW is the most comfortable sleeping pad in my collection. Due to its size and weight when deflated it would only be a choice for car camping. I have a collection of sleeping pads and this is my favorite one!  The Exped MegaMat 10 LXW is very easy to set up. Once the tent is set up, just unpack the MegaMat  and open the dedicated inflate valve to let it begin the self-inflate process.  This may take 15-30 minutes, so you can continue with your camp setup and return later… Full review

SynMat UL 9

rated 2.5 of 5 stars It's a great comfortable mattress, no doubt, but unfortunately I will be moving on to a different manufacturer in the future. I've had two of these, and each one has developed a slow leak after the first dozen or so uses. Simple as that. Regular use, not abuse. Granted I could patch it (like the first one....) and be on my merry way, but no thank you. Lost the faith, and would rather spend my time doing other things than chasing air leaks every couple weeks or so of use. Full review
