Laminina Z Flame

rated 4 of 5 stars If you can afford just one bag, and need a bag that "does most" — consider the Lamina/Lamina Z Flame. While this bag is not for gram-weenies, it is a great mid-range, mid-cost bag that hits a really great sweet spot for wet and 3-season use. This bag also has among the most features, lowest cost, and warmth rating in its class. Overall Specs The unisex version of the Lamina Z Flame bag is rated down to 22 degrees Fahrenheit for the EN lower limit and 32 degrees Fahrenheit for the EN comfort… Full review

Shifter 2

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Don't count out the dome tent! The Shifter 2 is a great all-rounder backpacking tent for what most of us do in the mountains, with affordable quality. The Mountain Hardwear (MH) Shifter 2 is a three-season tent designed to allow different configurations depending on how you arrange the fly. Theoretically you could face the more solid side of the tent into the prevailing wind in a storm and gain a little added protection. Tents in this category and price range, in my opinion, make up the bulk of… Full review

Haven 3

rated 2 of 5 stars Like most other reviews.  Nice tent, but the rain fly delaminates at the seams. Weird that all went at the same time. I took it out of the storage bag this late winter. All the seams had shrunk. Not just here and there, but every inch. Mountain Hardwear should call this a manufacturing defect. They clearly are using an inferior material to seal the seams. I question purchasing another. Full review

Exposure II Parka

rated 3 of 5 stars Great waterproofing and an overall good shell, but after less than six months one of the chest zippers ripped. Not something you expect when you pay $280 for a shell. REI took it back and gave me store credit, but by then the shell was out of stock. So, you either pay more for the Arc'teryx shell or buy a store brand. Disappointed in the quality overall. Poor workmanship. Expected more for the price.  Full review

Ghost Whisperer Down Vest

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Sure, this vest only weighs 5 oz, but what are you really getting? I only paid 1/5 the price at a closeout sale, but it only weighs 4oz less than the down jacket I picked up at Walmart for $19.98 (1/12th the price)! Cut the sleeves out and there you are. The quality of this vest isn't THAT much better than the cheap Walmart jacket either. And they are both made in China. Though the retail price on this vest is $245!! Ridiculous in my opinion. I love my MH rain jacket, but I'm not very impressed… Full review
