Ratio 15

rated 5 of 5 stars I would recommend this bag for anyone looking for a down bag on a budget. Perfect for three-season camping! I was replacing a Big Agnes mummy bag rated at 20 degrees. I wanted something different and without an inconvenient sleeve system, but I didn't want to spend an arm and a leg. Come forth the Ratio 15.  Purchased at Next Adventure where they accept old goods and in return give store credit which I'd accumulated the amount needed. This bag was brand new and on sale for a steal at $169. I couldn't… Full review

Skyview 3

rated 5 of 5 stars Best tent by far I've owned. I bought this 20 years ago and still use it. I recently had it on my last weeklong camp trip and I was the only one who stayed bone dry. It's been in 80 mph wind, 18 inches of snow in 12 hours, torrential rain for 3 days straight, and anything else you can throw at it. You can't beat this tent. Zip it up tight for winter or zip out the ceiling for summer. I can't say enough good about it. Full review

Pinole 20°

rated 4 of 5 stars The Mountain Hardwear Pinole 20 is a fine 3-season sleeping bag. I purchased this bag after much research on 20 degree bags. Some reviews had me second guessing. I'm glad that I ended up going with this product. I backpack/car camp/canoe camp in the mountains of East Tennessee and Western North Carolina. For me it made sense to go with a synthetic due to the humidity and moisture that I experience in my area.   Ready for use in the ever humid valley of South Fork Citico. I have spent an honest… Full review

Hammerhead 2

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Nice, light tent. It is easy to set up, even in the dark. Quick setup is helpful when it is raining. I've used this tent on a number of week-long hikes on the AT and LT. I've never been in a big downpour, but it has kept me dry in normal rain. It is quick and easy to set up. If you are by yourself, there is plenty of room in the alcove to keep your pack dry. Space might be tight if it is raining.  Full review

Lamina Z Spark 34°

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great all-round three-season sleeping bag. It's comfort rated down to 34°f, and compresses really well. The outer shell is waterproof, and even though it is a mummy style sleeping bag there is plenty of room inside to move around and get comfortable. The Mountain Hardwear Lamina Z Spark sleeping bag is a 3-season sleeping bag that is comfort rated down to a temperature of 34°f/1°c.  I have used this on several trips with temperatures dropping as low as 3°c, and felt no chills at all… Full review
