Mars 80

rated 5 of 5 stars You can disappear for seven days with this very comfortable pack without leaving any gear behind. Great Pack. I have used this on a 50-mile trip hiking the north loop in Glacier National Park and a 38-mile trip on the AT in North Carolina. I carried six days worth of food on both trips. I tend to bring  a lot of unnecessary gear, chairs, hammock, electronics, and a big first aid kit. The Glacier trip I carried 65 pounds without discomfort and had to scramble a couple of times. Pack feels like a… Full review

Kingdom 6 Tent

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Ha! Just read the full review ; ) Purchased the Kingdom 6 online 5 years ago. Lived in it for 2 summers+autumns until the snow stuck (late oct in sw co). following are a mess of messages i sent a friend regarding this tent: Thought the 2 (main tent structure) panels of screen would make it difficult to keep the warmth in, but banked it up with some straw on the sides and was cozy!..especially love (besides being able to stand in it), the 2 'walls' that meet across the center forming 2 rooms. and… Full review

Rainwall Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Great fit, allows for layering, fantastic durability. This jacket fits kids, and relatively small adults. I have used it for five years, and the rip stop fabric and breathable waterproofing remains at 100% effectiveness. Full review

Flash Insulated Air Pad

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight, quick inflate, and very comfortable. REI Flash sleeping pad (long) is one of the lightest and compact pads I've owned. I primarily hike on the Appalachian Trail in Georgia and North Carolina and this pad has made my nights very comfortable.  I would recommend this air pad.  Full review

Dash 2 Tent

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Exceptional semi-freestanding lightweight 3-season tent. This is a fantastic tent for under 3 pounds. I love the fact that the material is 15 denier ripstop nylon (20 denier mesh). Plenty of mesh for great ventilation. Although the tent is rated for 2 people, it is best used as a 1 person with plenty of room for gear. I think it would be awesome if REI made a 1 person tent from the same material. I would definitely purchase it.  This tent pitches very quickly (under 1 minute in a hurry). The semi-freestanding… Full review
