Weekender Pad

rated 5 of 5 stars This pad rocks. I have two of them. For the price you can't beat it, I have taken it backpacking four nights on Isle Royale, multiple weeks spent in Colorado backcountry, West Virginia, and so on. This sleeping pad provides enough insulation to keep you warm on colder nights. The only problem I have had is a leak occurring from the fabric right where the nozzle is (these leaks occurred on fourth use and somewhere around the 20th use).

Redwing 50 Reserve

rated 4 of 5 stars Kelty’s upscale Redwing 50 Reserve backpack has enough class for city travel and enough toughness to tackle the trail.

Cosmic 20

rated 4 of 5 stars Super affordable sleeping bag. It is perfect for a camper/backpacker on a budget. This bag is not only affordable, it's lightweight and compactable.

Teton 2

rated 5 of 5 stars I love this tent. It is going to replace my old solo tent. I recently picked up a gently used one, in great shape, and love the tent. The only thing missing was the original ground cover. So I used one from one of my other tents and I replaced the dried out shock cord. Easy to set up, plenty of room as a solo, and I stayed dry through a nasty thunderstorm while on a canoe trip. This will be my solo tent going forward. I'm giving my REI NiteLite away in favor of this tent. I have yet to see a "2-person"… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars This tent sleeps two comfortably. The footprint is a must to keep moisture out. The tent is perfect in weight to backpack camp. Dries quickly and packs easily. Highly recommend! Full review
