Hubba Hubba NX 2P

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight tent that is awesome for all your backpacking needs. The Hubba Hubba NX is one of the best backpacking two-person tents on the market. It's lightweight at 1.6kg with a footrpint. I've had the Hubba Hubba NX for nearly two full seasons. I've used it in massive rainstorms, windy nights, car camping, wild camping, and everything in between. Most of my days out have been in the Canadian Rockies. It's easy to set up as one person, though a second is never unwelcome. Rarely does it take more… Full review

Standard Fuel Pump

rated 2 of 5 stars The new version is poorly built and prone to constant failure requiring field repair. Had to replace my fuel pump. The new one, now on third one, has had several failures. This last one I considered catastrophic in nature. The ear which holds the plunger in place fractured and broke causing fuel to leak everywhere when I was using the stove. Wrote MSR with no response. This was pump three. The other two valve casing cracked and seal failure. Have been able to put the three together and get one workable… Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars Setup time of old model (-) vs. new model (+). The current model of this tent has one main upgrade that helps significantly in cold/harsh weather setup.The previous model had sleeves for the tent poles, which were hard to push through in cold weather with frozen hands or even with good gloves on trying to regain your warmth. Then when you finally got them all into position, you had to muscle the one side of the pole (one side because the other side is sealed shut) into the grommets. With this current… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars A stable and reliable backpacking stove. A simple design that affords flame control and packs a punch with the heat it produces! Having used an MSR WhisperLite in the past, I was intrigued by their newest stove. This stove provides a very stable and larger base for pots, one that is larger and more stable than the Whisperlite. It does boast more BTU's of heat, however it is a bit loud when the valve is fully open.   Igniting the stove is simple and easy as it will light with a traditional lighter… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars Love it. 1st stove purchase in 18 years. This was my first stove purchase in 18 years and I couldn't be happier. It packs up in this neat little triangular plastic case that fits in those little gaps of wasted space in your pack. No assembly, remove from the case, screw it on the tank, open the three support stands, unfold the gas control valve & fire it up. Boils 2 cups of water in about a minute or so on high (Estimated time). You should be certain to have your pot centered on the support… Full review
