Dual Fleece Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Tailor fit, very warm with mind blowing softness. I bought this fleece jacket in size S and it fits perfectly! It is a tight fit, but not restricting, and there is still enough room for layering. The stretchy side panels really give you freedom of movement. The warmth of this jacket is superb. It has "monkey fur" fleece over the torso, sleeves, and pockets. The outer fleece is dense and relatively efficient against wind and light rain. The monkey fur is the softest thing I have ever touched. I just… Full review

Pinole 20°

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Warm cozy and bulky synthetic sleeping bag that weighs almost as little as a down sleeping bag. Excellent quality and features. I used this sleeping bag while hiking for two months the Israeli National Trail and I did like it a lot. I'm a very cold sleeper, with a slim fit, which means finding a good sleeping bag is a nightmare for me, but I did find this bag warm with no cold spots which was a nice surprise. I used it in freezing desert nights and misty damp nights, and while most of the other… Full review

Skyledge 2 DP

rated 4 of 5 stars Great and solidly built, three-season, general-purpose backpacking tent. Would be better with a few minor improvements. This is my third Mountain Hardwear tent. Before this tent, I had a Mountain Hardwear Approach (which may have been my favorite tent, though it was also my first real tent I've purchased), and then a Skyledge 2.1 that came with me throughout South America on a year-long trip, and it held up very well. The Skyledge 2 DP has a few design changes from the Skyledge 2.1, though I'm… Full review

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
