rated 4.5 of 5 stars So durable I inherited one. My dad passed this stove down to me after many years of service. It looks like it is around 20 years old? Would that be an exaggeration? The yellowed instructions put the company in at an old address with only a local Seattle phone number. The bottles were just plain aluminum with no logo or name and the pump was just yellowish plastic. It worked like this for many years for me before the hosing became brittle and cracked and the other rubber parts deteriorated. I had… Full review

Mutha Hubba

rated 2.5 of 5 stars This tent is for someone who wants a good quality, light 3-person tent. I received the MSR Mutha Hubba approximately 6 years ago and it has served me very well. I always stored it correctly and never had an issue, but my last trip I noticed some leaking at the stich points. On closer examination the taped seam sealer had deteriorated and began to “crumble” off prematurely . I have had other high end tents that never did this (especially at 6 years old) and I believe this is a factory defect. Full review

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
