Phantom 32°

rated 3 of 5 stars It's a good bag and well made, yet a bit skinny and hood opening is too small. My Likes Bought the long model of the bag for a cross-country bicycling trip. It did that job well since it was summer and I never really needed to zip up all the way. It comes with a nice storage sack and a nice stuff sack. It packs down small and light and worked great in panniers.  It is also a joy to have for backpacking due to its size and weight. It was nice to find something this small and light with still a respectable… Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars Weatherproof 2-person tent that will last for 10 years of moderate careful use. I have owned this tent for I think about 10 years. My wife and I bicycled across the country in it without a single problem under every day use. Even though headroom was at a minimum it also was very low profile which allowed it to withstand serious winds.  Setup is easy and quick. The materials and craftsmanship are very nice. In shopping for a new tent I have noticed that the craftsmanship on Mountain Hardwear and… Full review

Scrambler 30 OutDry

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Solid build, but the waterproofing is a gimick. Overall I think this is a decent day pack for scrambles and hiking. I tested this out.  The side pockets are adequate, the material is very solid, and I found the fit to be adequate, but not superb. The lack of a decent hipbelt was off-putting, especially for a 30L pack. For me that rules it out of being useful as a crag pack, or for heavier hauls, which the burely material suggests it can handle well.  The pack is advertised as waterproof. An OutDry… Full review

Scrambler 30 OutDry

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Mountain Hardwear Scrambler 30 OutDry is a great little backpack that is 100% waterproof. I do a lot of canoeing and try to keep the number of packs to a minimum, so I usually take one large canoe pack and a food barrel. However I also like to take a smaller 'day-pack' along for side hikes and so I can access smaller items without opening up the big canoe pack. Up until now I have not been able to find a good waterproof daypack, but recently I came across the Mountain Hardwear SCRAMBLER 30 (for… Full review

Lamina -30

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very warm bag, comfortable down to -20°F for women I'd say. Note that it is heavier than a down bag and doesn't compress down very small. Having used this sleeping bag in a cold cabin when outside temperatures were about -25°F, I feel this bag keeps one comfortably warm down to -20°F (women), although the technical rating is for -30° (survival temp). This bag has a storage pocket on the upper body (outside of bag). It would fit a flip phone of yesteryear but not my Galaxy s4. I use it for chapstick… Full review
