Mini Multitowel

rated 5 of 5 stars The mini towel is perfect for backpacking. After a heavy rain it's great to wipe water off your tent. The towel holds a lot of water and rings out almost dry. It comes in a small lightweight pouch with a caribiner to attach to your pack. Can be use to clean or dry your body or cook gear. I won't go hiking without it. Just love it! I used this towel on a thru hike of the Apalachian Trail. I used it as a sweat band and a towel for bathing. It was a lifesaver when it came to absorbing and wiping water… Full review

Insulated Mug

rated 5 of 5 stars This fantastic mug has greated my morning for over 20 years now. Ordinarily I would say a mug lasting this long and still functioning is a fluke, but for the fact I have two identical mugs and both are great. I bought mine many years ago when my wife and I hiked The Big Bend in Texas and later hike down to Phantom Ranch in The Grand Canyon. My wife found a picture the other day with the mug in the background. The picture is over 20 years old. I guess this has to be one of my single greatest purchase. Full review

Quarter Dome T3

rated 2.5 of 5 stars The Quarter Dome T3 was marketed as a dome tent for backpackers. Unfortunately, it has proven to be poorly designed executed. While this tent is still usable for car camping, it is by no means a backpacking tent. I bought the Quarter Dome T3 about 3 or 4 years ago, but to be honest, I don't remember why I bought it. I certainly have no shortage of tents, but somehow this one got added to my collection. When I first bought it, I took it out on a 5-day long trek around the Presidentials. That was… Full review

Relax Air Bed

rated 4 of 5 stars Doesn't appear to leak. Not a queen size. Have only used once and the initial experience is good. Overall seems to be a good guality. Two drawbacks: Supposedly queen size but it isn't, at least in width. More like a full (double). Even though the foot pump allows the hose to be connected to the deflation(suction) side of the pump there is no mating adapter provided that will fit the mattress's female threaded port once the one way fill valve section is removed. I checked with my local REI store… Full review

Mountain 3

rated 4 of 5 stars I wouldn't want to take it mountaineering, but a heck of a good tent for bad weather camping in rain and windy conditions. After suffering through some windy (but dry) camp trips in Death Valley and various rivers that resulted in a tent full of dust, I went looking for something I could zip completely closed when conditions warranted.I also wanted something with a more robust pole setup that could stand up to the wind without folding or breaking poles. This led me to 4 season tents, which were… Full review
