Fluid 32

rated 4 of 5 stars I am an avid backpacker, hiker, and mountain biker. I needed a new full size day pack. I wanted a bag I could use for long day hikes, as well as around town. This pack is the newer model (Panel Loader Design). Pros: New panel load design allows me to open the bag up enough to see all the contents. Very lightweight and versatile. Does a great job and distributing the all my gear, yet I can compress it and stow the waist belt, and use it sightseeing and for quick overnight traveling. H2O bladder compatible,… Full review

Airjet 2

rated 2 of 5 stars If the seams had not failed I would have rated this tent 5 stars. Loved this tent. I actually put it to some good backpacking use. I used it for ten years, but only a few times a year. Unfortunately its failure in seam tape design, as has been mentioned by other reviewers, was its downfall.The entire front wall, where you enter and exit came unglued on my last trip this month. This tent could have had another 5 years service, minimum, with the use I put into it. I suspect I could have squeezed 10… Full review

Pinole 20°

rated 5 of 5 stars Great bag for the budget backpacker. Compresses well for a 20deg synthetic, and keeps me warm down to rated temp! My son and I needed a couple of packable, cold weather bags for backpacking with his Scout Troop.  Considering budgeting for outfitting us both with packs, bags, sleeping pads, and miscellaneous gear, we were looking at less expensive bags. Throw in that we're in the Southeast, where humidity and rain are always in the possibilities, down bags didn't make sense, either. I put some research… Full review

Hunker Down Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars This is an ideal for lightweight visits to the town. The lightness of it, you won't believe really, unless it comes in your hands. It packs down to a stuff sack, very handy and could be used as a pillow. I had a blue one, very great. Chest pocket is a nice feature. It acts as a great layer itself. Throw on a wool shirt underneath and this one and you are ready to go, when the temperature is freezing, like -10° and up, depending upon your own body circumstances. Abrasion protection is admirable. Full review

UltraLamina 32°

rated 4 of 5 stars Light, packable. I love this bag. I used it for a 5-night trip to Clear Creek in the Grand Canyon. The coldest night was about 38 degrees. I wore several layers most nights as the temp was low 40s high 30s, and I wasn't freezing. The thing I love most is how small and light it packs. Carrying everything around for 6 days, it's the weight and room it takes in my pack that matters, and this bag is excellent in both regards. I guess it could be warmer near the temp rating, but having researched bag… Full review
