SB 20

rated 5 of 5 stars I would highly reccomend this sleeping bag. It was warm, and the head and foot box will always be dry. Dri-Down is an excellent advantage over the normal down. We got the SB 20 because I was looking for a lightweight, DriDown bag. I got this one because of the extra protection Kelty puts on the bags. The head and foot boxes each have a water resistant covering to help you stay protected from any condensation that comes off of a tent.  The bag was plenty warm for me, and felt good. All the zippers… Full review

TraiLogic TN2

rated 4 of 5 stars Easy to use, not very heavy backpacking tent. It comes with the star gazing rain fly which is great! Setup is super easy with this tent. Kelty has color coordinated poles, tent, and rain fly so that putting it together is really simple. The color coordination is not obscene or obvious so no one will know that it is there unless they are putting the tent up.  The tent has the ability to keep the rain fly rolled up and out of the way so that you can view the stars at night. If the weather turns you… Full review

Acadia 4

rated 4 of 5 stars Nice tent for car camping. Easy setup with good protection from cold and rain. Cool when needed. Best for two or three people. Excellent product for car camping after many uses. Plenty of room in the vestibules on both sides. Large doors mean no restrictions on entry and exit. A queen air mattress can even fit through either doorway. The two doors allow easy access and airflow when using the rain fly, which i almost use. However, on dry balmy nights, removing the rain fly allows good breeze and… Full review

PK 50

rated 3 of 5 stars Innovative new design has promise, but needs refinement. I really wanted to like this back because of its innovative design, lack of any zippers, and organizational features. But unfortunately the uncomfortable suspension system kept me from doing so. I will start with the pack bag itself; it is a 50 liter which can be downsized to 35 liters by removing the exterior pocket. The outside pocket was one of the features I liked because it could hold all my clothing in the lower section and all of… Full review

TraiLogic TN2

rated 4 of 5 stars Great two-person tent. Very lightweight yet spacious. Recently bought the Trailogic TN2 and used it to to do some car camping in the Tetons and Yellowstone. Rained a lot one of the nights and the tent held up great. Best features are that it is easy to set up and very spacious inside and in vestibules. I have yet to try the stargazing mode but I am excited to use it. One problem was that water did pool in the top of the rain fly. This could have been an error in the setup. The fly as a whole did… Full review
