King Pine HD 4-Person Dome

rated 5 of 5 stars Top dollar car camping tent, once you try you won't go back. I write here about the old model King Pine Dome 4. If you can't have the nicest house where you live, this tent will play the part in any campground.  I have replaced the shatter-prone plastic stakes with steel stakes for the 8 required for the tent body. The footprint is color-coded matching the tent body for routing poles and tent body quickly. The poles are shock-corded fiberglass with hard mounted aluminum sleeves to join them as… Full review

Explorer Sandals

rated 4 of 5 stars Women's footwear made by L.L Bean. Whether they're for hitting the trail, strolling along the boardwalk, gardening, these athletic sandals keep feet protected and ventilated. Plenty of options and styles available. I'VE GOT MINE ON RIGHT NOW!!! Relaxin' with my L.L Bean on my feet. My feet smile when I wear them! These are by far my favorite sandals. I've had them for several years and have walked plenty of miles in these sandals. These sandals are not recommended for running but are comfortable… Full review

Mountain Light XT 3-Person Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars We actually have a prior year's model (rust and light grey), which supposedly has been improved for this year's green model. Hard to imagine how they could improve it, but apparently it is a slightly stronger fabric, and is actually $50 less expensive! The design is the same, and so our review would be useful for this, or prior year's model. This free-standing tent is easy to assemble, goes up quickly, and also can be taken down with ease. In our family, it is usually put up by one person, without… Full review

Gore-Tex Cresta Hikers, Fabric/Leather

rated 3 of 5 stars Shank not stiff enough; Toe scuffed badly after one hike; Upper lace hooks cut my finger. This is a review of the Fabric/Leather Cresta. I weigh 225 pounds. With a 40-pound pack the boot shanks flexed, transmitting unwanted surface contour sensations under my feet on/off the John Muir Trail in California. Been using Bean products there since the Reagan years. No fit problems using a Birkenstock 3/4 length insert. However cushioning was an issue arising in bruised and blistered underside of one big… Full review

Coolweave Technical Fishing Shirt, Short-Sleeve

rated 4 of 5 stars I am not a fisherman, but this shirt has become my "go-to" shirt for day hikes and canoeing. It is comfortable, cool, has UPF+50 sun protection, a zippered pocket, and other features I like. It is a bit pricier than my t-shirts, but I think I may be purchasing another in a different color. I have the short sleeve version of the shirt—it does come in a long sleeve version, which I may consider in the future. The fit is relaxed, and the fabric does not cling, even while hiking in hot and muggy conditions. Full review
