Trekker Wonderland

rated 5 of 5 stars I have used this pack for many years on extended trips of up to nine days. It has seen many cross-country hikes in very rough terrain. It has always performed well and is comfortable until I get up to 60+ lbs of weight, but over 60 lbs what pack is comfortable? Zippers are still functioning well as is the rest of the pack. I am very sad to see that you can no longer buy a new one. Fits well and is comfortable. Full review

Flash Carbon Trekking Poles

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Poles absolutely make hiking easier. These are my first poles and I really find them useful on the trail. They adjust easily to your height needs by telescoping in and out, which can be important going up and down steep slopes as you might want to change the length. The poles take a lot of pressure as I not only use them to help propel myself forward, but on more than one occasion they prevented a fall on slippery rocks. On one particularly rocky downhill climb one of the baskets came off in the… Full review

Half Dome 2 Plus

rated 5 of 5 stars This tent is extremely easy and fast to set up and break down. It has an entrance on both sides so you don't have to climb over each other. There is lots of storage pockets all around the tent and a loop for a lantern on the ceiling. It is pretty lightweight and very waterproof. I have had this tent for a year and have loved it. It is still in fantastic condition. It is a three-season tent, but I have used it in winter backpacking and it worked well. It has been through rain and high winds and has… Full review

Trekker Wonderland

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Quality and functionality for over 20 years. The Wonderland was handed down to me nearly 20 years ago! It's still in great shape, except for a zipper on the removable fanny pack. I believe it's more reliable  and modular than these newer streamlined packs. Sure it's bulky, but I'm not running a marathon in it. It's timeless and I wouldn't exchange it for any other pack.  Full review

Quarter Dome 1

rated 5 of 5 stars I purchased the REI Quarter Dome tent for my Triple Crown quest. Planning over 35,000 km in backpacking and 25,000k m in cycling. This will be my go-to tent. I purchased this tent after two previous tent, before finding the REI QuarterDome. This is a triple detailed review sorry, but these two previous tents led me to the final tent. First tent was the NatureHike UL 2 tent. Standalone. Not expensive. Easy to set up Very stable Best weather resistance based on its class Ventilation was superb Tons… Full review
