Mollusc Nano 2

rated 4 of 5 stars I invented this tent so the reader needs to understand first off that I am utterly biased in its favour but I do think it easily solves the hateful summer overheating problem that afflicts just about every other nylon tent and its 'open and close' functionality confers a lot of collateral advantages that people who have used the tent rave about. Yes, we would love it if people want to buy one but as a pretty unique design we also want to put it out to the camping community for feedback so we can… Full review

Mountain Lodge Merino Wool Outdoor Sport Socks

rated 4 of 5 stars Mountain Lodge Merino Wool Outdoor Sport Socks are a great option for day hiking and casual wear when your day includes hiking boots/shoes and casual footwear.

Bearpaw Superior

BSN Medical Leukotape P

One of the best things about the tape for me is that it is… Full review

Alpine Start Original Blend Instant Coffee

rated 4 of 5 stars If you’re looking for instant coffee you’ll do well finding Alpine Start. Upmarket of center, Alpine Start offers a boldness, a complexity of flavor not often found outside of the fresh-ground-and-lovingly-brewed set. For those not married to the traditional method of coffee brewing, Alpine Start also allows a greatly reduced base weight and packed size in comparison. Best For: Well, you know—Alpinists, apparently. Fast-packers, thru-hikers, college students, and commuters, also. All those… Full review
