Salida 2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This product is great as far as airflow, weight, and price point. Larger vestibules area similar to the Sierra Design Flash Lightning and the like would be awesome, but you sacrifice weight for convenient storage. But for a smaller size weight 2-man tent this is a great buy if you can get your hands on one. I took this pack for five days out on the PCT last year in February and it performed flawlessly. I had no issues with condensation even though it got quite cold and stayed quite damp. I do use… Full review

SB 20

rated 5 of 5 stars An excellent 3-season down bag for the money. Quality made product and impressive customer service. I've turned several people on to this bag. Was able to purchase for a promotional price, but wouldn't hesitate paying retail. Me: 6'1" and 210 pounds. I chose the long bag and it fits perfectly. My tent: Big Agnes Slater UL 2+. The Slater series has no mesh so it does help my stabilize temps in colder weather. Ground Pad: Big Agnes 15 degree insulated Q-Core pad. (5 stars plus for comfort! best night's… Full review

Compression Stuff Sacks

rated 4 of 5 stars I use the large for my Alps Crescent Lake 20 sleeping bag. It's a good sack, as it's pretty durable. The straps put up to a lot of pulling and pushing. The sack doesn't keep its form super well, but careful stuffing helps to alleviate that. When not in use, the stuff sack can be packed into a small pocket on its lid and then clipped to your pack. Nice touch. Only downside is the sack is not waterproof, but it doesn't claim to be or anything. Full review

Cosmic Down 20°

rated 5 of 5 stars A down bag for $115—it doesn't get better. Got the long from Sierra Trading with deal flyer discount over $100 off retail price. Very nice looking bag, the two blues look great.  Added a 13L Granite Gear eVent waterproof compression stuff sack and when compressed it compresses to about the size of a large shoe box. The bag has DriDown, but I wouldn't let any bag—let alone down—get wet. Full review

Grand Mesa 2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars In my short time with this tent, it has satisfied all the needs I require out of this piece of gear. It's easy, simple, and very effective in separating in from out. I would highly recommend the Grand Mesa, especially given how good of a deal it is. SETUP: This is a tent, so if you can set one of those up, this should be no challenge. The poles snap together beautifully, and the ends slot into their places with a very nice ball-and-socket joint. The only challenge I found was orienting the rainfly… Full review
