Hobitat 4

rated 5 of 5 stars A tent big enough to stand in, or lounge inside with several friends during stormy weather. Great for most types of weather, even light snow. Great all around, car camping tent. Full review

Half Dome 2

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Good in fair weather only. ANY amount of rain consistently ends up coming in through the vents even velcroed shut. Heavy rain bounces into the tent from under the flaps. After many soaked nights, I have begun adding modifications since I live in Australia and can't really exchange it—fingers crossed on the mods. This tent is great in dry weather. We have used it in all sorts of terrain—hard earth, soft earth, duff, grass, river cobbles (with protective blanket under, that was car camping), etc. Full review

Stratus Insulated Air Pad

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the best back-packable mattress pad I have used. The Stratus is aptly named. I bought this mattress for a sailing/camping event along the Maine Island Trail in a small boat. The pad has proved to be just right for camping on land as well. The outside ribs help prevent rolling off, which always happens to me on other sleeping pads I've used. This one provides a nice cradle effect and even on the boat I did not slide off. I find it easy to inflate and deflate, a welcome change compared to… Full review

Igneo Sleeping Bag

rated 5 of 5 stars Great bag, I would buy another one. You can't go wrong buying this bag. It has the quality or exceeds the quality of much more expensive 20 degree bags. I used this bag on an AT thru-hike 2015. What I like most about the bag is it's ultra-lite, very packable, very water resistant and a perfect fit for me at 165 pounds 5'10", using the regular bag. I found it to be a very comfortable bag. I washed the bag using cold water and dried the bag in a dryer on low heat using drier balls to keep the… Full review

Recycled Camp Mug

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Good for the office if you have size small hands. The Good: I bought this product in the 12 ounce version to keep coffee warm and for a little spill prevention. It's a little smaller than the freebie 20 oz coffee cups I use normally, and sturdier. I'm sure it would last forever. In comparison to a 650ml titanium or aluminum mug, it keeps the liquid warm longer and has a lid to keep floaties out.    The Bad: When filled it tends to tip over more easily than a 650ml mug, and without a closing mechanism… Full review
