Coyote 4900

rated 4 of 5 stars A bomb proof pack that does it a little on the heavy side. This product is best for 2+ day expeditions in any terrain. I would recommend this to a friend with a larger waist. The pack fits excellent and true to size. I however have a smaller waist and even with the straps fully tightened it is a little too big around the belt. I have hiked with this pack on multi-day treks and it is very comfortable. Everything is adjustable. The torso adjustment came in very handy seeing I have a longer torso. Full review

Redwing 50

rated 4 of 5 stars Great materials and craftsmanship, Kelty is very durable in harsh field conditions. Perfect for packing as a carry-on everything you cannot afford to lose from a suitcase. Ergonomic, fits and adjusts to your body. This is a replacement for my old faithful Kelty used for many years. Full review

Acadia 2

rated 4 of 5 stars Great tent! Lightweight and easy to pack. I am pretty tall, 6'4" and this tent fit me great when I was lying at an angle. Very easy to set up and the rain fly did a great job of keeping my gear dry. After looking at several tents for my first backpacking trip I chose the Kelty Acadia 2.

Super Tioga

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Are YOU a mule? When you need to haul a week's worth of stuff, this pack will do it. I'm not a small guy—6' and 225-230 pounds. I usually have to carry enough to qualify as a mule. This pack carries it all. If you need to carry a real load this is your pack. I know it's considered old school, but hey, it is still made because it still works. If you hike trails and don't want to be Mr. Schweddy, you'll like this pack. It transfers the weight to your hips, and takes it off your shoulders.   The… Full review

SB 20

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A quality down bag that is as good as some much higher priced sleeping bags. I bought this bag for backpacking in the Sierras and I have used it over the past two years. It's very comfortable and warm — true to the 20 degree spec. I am 6'1" and this bag has plenty of room for me.  Because this sleeping bag has DriDown, it has great loft and also packs down very small into the included stuff sack.  A storage sack is also included. I would definitely buy it again! Full review
