rated 5 of 5 stars I have the 3 liter variant of this bladder and it has been fantastic. It is well built and has taken a beating on the trails and quickly connects to my Miniworks filter so I can quickly fill it with clean water. This product is best for backpacking, hiking, camping, or really any outdoor activity. I even took mine to the beach one day! Some complain about the two loops as opposed to one, but my pack has two hooks for hydration bladders so it works great for me, definitely recommend. I bought this… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light, compact, and super efficient. Used for three weeks solid of the Pacific Crest Trail, as well as multiple times in the Scottish Highlands and it worked a dream, boiling water quickly for breakfasts and dinner (freeze dried). Comes with a lighter that works very well and is not flimsy. If you want something that boils water fast and is super lightweight and compact then look no further because this is what you need! It's very simple to use and set up with three prongs that need to be folded… Full review

Hubba Hubba NX 2P

rated 5 of 5 stars This tent is easy to set up, comfortable for two, and lightweight. I have set this tent up with another person in varying conditions and configurations.

It is comfortable -- good ventilation, but keeps occupants warm when needed. There is enough room to sit upright and change clothes in the tent. There are… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent stove for boiling water and fast cooking I have used this stove in the Beartooth Wilderness of Montana and the Porcupine Mountains in Michigan. I was able to turn the stove low enough that I could cook eggs and pancakes with it, but that is really pushing the stove on the low end. If you need to simmer a pot of gourmet gumbo, look into the MSR Dragonfly instead. I highly recommend this stove and have never been let down by any MSR product. Stove sets up easily. Just thread the pump into… Full review

WhisperLite Internationale

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The only reason this isn't a 5-star review is because of the weight of this item compared to other stoves. But, I've used this same stove for 16 years. It has seen countless nights in temps down to the teens. It has NEVER EVER failed me. This is a workhorse stove that gets the job done! There is a reason that MSR continues to make this stove. It works. It's reliable. It's easy to use. And, on and on... I bought my stove for my 2000 AT thru hike. It has never failed. It works no matter how cold it… Full review
