Morrison 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Great two door, two vestibule tent. I took this backpacking with my nephew in MI.  Amazingly easy and fast to set up.  We had a serve thunderstorm the early the second morning the tent held up awesome.  I was so comfortable and felt secure that I just put ear plugs in and feel back asleep. The fly keeps the rain (and no splash backs in the tent) and wind out. I bought it to replace my The North Face 2 man Tuolumne tent from the 70's/80's that it just to difficult to get in and out of fast. … Full review

Six Pack

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Although it has a slightly misleading name, the Mountainsmith Six Pack is a lightweight, collapsible cooler that has much more room than for just a 6-pack. Best for day hikes, paddling trips, and car-camping, where things need to be kept cold and separated from other goods for only one day. Ease of Use: This zippered soft cooler is capable of keeping items cold for a day or so, depending on how much ice/freezer packs you include. Even when your ice does start to melt, the seam-sealed interior prevents… Full review

Trekker FX MonoPod

rated 4 of 5 stars As others have found, the tip doesn't hold up well. Though I must admit it has been one of the best poles I've used in keeping the height adjustment accurately—have had no slippage in three years of use. I'm planning a long trip on some rough trails, so am planing on getting another one to be on the safe side. Also always carry an extra tip just to make sure. After three years of use this has not once slipped from the set height and the grip is just as comfortable as when I first got it. Only… Full review

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
