Gore-Tex Cresta Hikers, Fabric/Leather

rated 5 of 5 stars After 10 years of ownership I am in awe of these boots. I wish i could find their "little, lighter, more breathable brother" — but it doesn't appear to exist. Yea, they're costly at $225, but they last forever, support superbly, and are insanely comfortable (aside from heat). Here's a review after living with these boots a while — like TEN YEARS. They rock. Maybe it's me, or my feet, but in a mixed bag of real hiking, light use, and even around-the-yard stuff, these are possibly the most comfortable… Full review

Mountainside Backpack

rated 5 of 5 stars Very durable. Well designed and comfortable to carry. Very versatile and practical. Never had a problem with it. I love this backpack. It holds enough gear and is the right shape to wear on your shoulders. Good design. Has chest and hip straps for a secure and comfortable carry. Has just the right capacity for what I need. I take this pack on mountain climbing trips for the day or overnights. Rain has no effect on it and it keeps things dry.  Well made with tough stitching. Light enough for day… Full review

Adventure Dome 4-Person Tent

rated 4 of 5 stars This tent is THE tent for car camping. I've been trying to get my fiancee to love camping, and this did the trick. Wonderful view of the sky with the fly off. Spacious. Sturdy. Great air flow. Giving it 4 instead of 5 stars for plastic stakes. Needed to stake in near the ocean a few times for wind, and bent one on my first shot. Good thing there is a 100% satisfaction guarantee! Spent the last week in this tent and couldn't be happier with it. Smart features include a double zip on each door/window. Full review

Scrunch Down Vest

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Awesome! Very comfortable, warm, and well designed w/quality workmanship; excellent tailoring to layer with while also being stylish too. In keeping w/the LL Bean reputation, a great down vest for the money! On sale now too ; ) Full review

Escape 20 Day Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars Great pack for day hike, includes a hydration hole to insert your own. Great fit on your back. I got this pack and have used it on several hikes. I like that the side pockets can hold a water bottle if you don't want to use a hydration system. It has some great pockets to separate gear. And useful outside straps to prevent bouncing if not too much in pack. Nice durable contraction. I'm 6'2 and it fits on my back quite nice. Has a padded hip belt the breathes well to use on a trail run as well. A… Full review
