rated 4.5 of 5 stars Almost perfect. I agree the Doobie is excellent for what it is. I write separate only to note for our readers that the insulation is somehow disconnected from the shell such that it can be hard to get the insulation where it needs to be in the middle of the night in a hammock in the woods. Giving up and going to sleep still leaves you warm, but only satisfied at 4.5 stars. Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars The warmest blanket for the weight I have ever seen. Compresses deceptively small and then fluffs out like a comforter. This is a review for the Kifaru Doobie,┬áthe thicker variant of the Woobie. It takes its name from its inspiration: the government issue poncho liner, known affectionately to ground troops as the "Woobie".

Tactical Platform Frame and Suspension

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a pack frame that you can carry anything that your legs can lift in, comfortably, whether it's an ultralight sil-nylon bag, firewood, or your friend who sprained an ankle.

KU 5200

rated 5 of 5 stars Ultralight custom made pack that handles heavy loads. 2#s 14 oz's lightest best ultralight pack period. Add on pods for for more gear. I put 125#s on this and it was as comfortable as any pack I have ever used. ┬áDont forget at two+pounds you get to add two to seven pounds free compared to other packs. That means you can carry almost a gallon of water and it won't be any heavier than most other packs this size. Custom made to fit your measurements. Patrick Smith (Kifaru/Mountainsmith) has redefined… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a 3700 cubic inch light backpack built by a long time U.S. manufacturer normally associated with hunting and military personnel. With its accessories and multiple attachment points it is able to be expanded and organized as desired. I would recommend this to anyone who would like a light pack that is capable of holding large loads very comfortably. I would like to begin by saying I am retired from a non related line of work to the outdoor industry and not a rep for this or any other company. Full review
