Mistral 20

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great bag, at a great price. Very warm. I bought this bag from Sierra Trading with the deal flyer discount, and it came in under $100. A very nice bag. I pack it in a large Alps Mountaineering compression bag. One of two long 20 degree bags I own. The other is the Marmot Sorcerer. This is the nicer bag. Full review

Noah's Tarp 12

rated 4 of 5 stars The Kelty Noah 12 is a huge tarp perfect for year round use, if you are not worried about weight. It can be set up in many different configurations and has plenty of tie-out points. I bought this Kelty Noah 12 used for use over my hammock when backpacking. It provides more than enough cover for my hammock and gear to be kept out of the elements. I've even used it to cover my hammock and daughters 1-person tent while out camping and it provided plenty of coverage. I mostly use this on a diagonal… Full review

TN2

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Great design, but smaller than advertised. This appears to be a well-constructed tent, and the stargazing fly is a genius idea. When I did a practice pitch in my yard and put my 77" Therm-a-Rest pad in the tent, though, it seemed like a tighter fit than it should be. Sure enough, the tent floor on mine measured 81.5" x 48" at the widest, and that was being generous with how I was measuring, and I had the tent fully staked out. The narrow end was likewise a couple of  inches narrower than stated. Full review

Grand Mesa 4

rated 4 of 5 stars It's a solid tent. It has perform great in the rain and cold, and has great ventilation during hot weather. There's plenty of room for four people. It's a bit heavy and best used for car camping. I have had this tent for a few years now. Have used it mostly car camping with the Boy Scouts and it has worked great in all types of weather. Took it on a backpacking trip recently and realized that's too heavy (about 11 pounds) to haul around on the Appalachian Trail. The tent comes with two sturdy aluminum… Full review

Ignite DriDown 28

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This sleeping bag is designed for warmth even in damp conditions. The DriDown technology keeps the cold out and dries fast. I bought this bag to replace my 20-year-old down bag after waking up freezing on a wet 50 degree night. This bag is great for warmth in damp conditions and packs down light. I bought it to take fall camping and fight off foggy mornings. It's rated to 28 degrees but I found that it's closer to 40 degrees for comfort. I am 5'8" and made the mistake of buying the regular length… Full review
