InCamp 4

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bought this tent last week for car camping to replace old leaker. Bought this tent last week for car camping and I'm very happy with it. Slept in it five nights, two rainy and three windy with no problems. First I had the Kaiju 4 and sent it back as the pole diameter was too small. The brow pole was stressed to a point on snapping. Purchased the InCamp 4—great vertical space and thick poles with pre-bent sections. Happy camper!!!!!!! Full review

Quarter Dome 1

rated 5 of 5 stars Great tent at a reasonable price. This tent is everything I was looking for in a shelter, plus it was REI's spring 20% off so it was the perfect time to get a new shelter. I had a 1-man tent and in an effort to cut weight went to a tarp. With the tarp, stakes, tie outs and but netting I wasn't saving much weight and it was a pain to set up. This tent has it all—light weight and spacious. It is wider at one end than at the feet, but at 6'4" I had plenty of room for me and my 50lb dog. Rain fly… Full review

Passage 2 Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a solid freestanding, three-season tent that fits two people with ease. It's lightweight, breathable, and compact—perfect for all your backpacking and camping needs. I got this tent on sale hoping it would make me go hiking more, and honestly it has. The first time I used it was with a college friend after driving to Mammoth Caves for a night. We got in late, and I was a little worried about getting the tent up and ready before it got too dark. The first time I opened the stuff sack,… Full review

Traverse Shocklight

rated 4 of 5 stars I took a pair of REI Traverse Shocklight Trekking Poles end-to-end on the Long Trail in Vermont. One pole went the distance! I have backpacked extensively in Canada and the western United States and never used trekking poles. My wife insisted that I take them on the Long Trail. She was right!! The Long Trail is a steady diet of roots and rocks, up and down. Much of the Long Trail was blazed without the benefit of switchbacks. The trail very often is a stream bed. When you are lucky, the stream bed… Full review

Revelcloud Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Great lightweight jacket for windy and chilly conditions. Packable and warm. I was in the market for a puffy type jacket and researched many options. I was leaning towards the Patagonia Nano Puff, but really didn't want to pay the higher price for the Patagonia. I came across the Revelcloud and it seemed to be pretty much the same jacket and was much less expensive. Since buying the jacket I have used it a lot. It makes a great outer layer over my fleece for cold and windy conditions. I have not… Full review
