Genesee 4

rated 4 of 5 stars Great value in a 3-4 person backpacking tent. You would be hard-pressed to find the features of this tent at this price point. I bought this tent a couple years ago for backpacking with my two kids. This tent has exceeded my expectations. Easy for one person to set up. From ice to thunderstorms this tent has performed well in all kinds of weather and always kept us dry. Ventilation is adequate. I have only experienced condensation if I seal everything up with three people inside and it drops below… Full review

Genesee 4

rated 5 of 5 stars Light and dry tent. This is the first time out with the MountainSmith Genesee 4 three-season tent, and it is impressive all the way. The first thing you will notice is this tent is that it comes in at under 7 pounds. With this pup tent sized weight you get 56 square feet enclosed and a few more feet under the fly for boot/drink storage. The materials selected are MountainSmith name worthy: 30d x 244T Nylon Storage Sack 7075 Aluminum V-Stakes Fly: 185T Poly PU2000MM F/R Tent: 185T Breathable Poly… Full review

Lariat 65

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A fantastic pack for overnight or the long weekend away, the Lariat has all the features you can use without all the add-ons you don't need. Easy to carry, it puts everything right where you need it with a simple zipper. I started looking for a new pack about three years ago to replace my tried and trusted Lowe Alpine Contour which had been my companion across the U.S. for years. I wanted a lighter pack with good suspension. I studied and compared, I tried on a lot of different styles and makes… Full review

Circuit 3.0

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I use this pack for multi-day trips into Wilderness. It is extremely comfortable and easy to adjust without stopping. I am with a federal agency. I am also a wildland firefighter and I use this pack when I take the "pack test." Loaded with 45 lbs I can do three miles in less than 45 minutes with no pain or strain with the Mountainsmith Circuit 3.0. After 30 years of backcountry travel and backpacking this pack feels better than any I have used or owned! Full review

Mountain Shelter LT

rated 2.5 of 5 stars The tent was tested for size and space for two people, one being 5'10" the other 5'1", prior to outdoor setup. I have hammock camped in storms and used double wall tents in the past.  Expectations for the weekend of testing included showers and possible thunderstorms. Ease of setup even in the dark was relatively easy for one person. Used the provided v-stakes and a nearby handy boot for placement in the ground. The first night it rained and awoke to 2-3 inches of snow. The ground stakes in some… Full review
