Flash 45 Pack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a fantastic lightweight pack. It carries well for such a light pack that doesn't have much in the way of a frame. This pack would be great for those starting on the journey to ultralight backpacking, while still having a pack with a lot of features. Fit:  This pack claims it fits up to a 19" torso in the Large size. I am 6'3" with around a 20" torso but decided to give it a try anyway. The pack is essentially frameless outside of the back padding and the Delrin rod around the outside of… Full review

Lite-Core Sit Pad

rated 4.5 of 5 stars If you don't want to carry a chair and you still appreciate relief from the hard ground around your campsites then you might want to consider adding the REI Lite-Core 4 ounce multi use item to your pack. It serves me as a sit pad, semi-frame for my frameless back pack, cold weather chair insulation and insulation under my calves and feet for sleeping in my hammock. I find the REI Lite-Core sit pad a very valuable, durable, and multi-functional piece of gear. It is the first thing that goes in my… Full review

Sub Kilo +15

rated 5 of 5 stars This bag was one of my favorite pieces of gear for my 21 days on the the Appalachian Trail. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a good spring or fall bag. I'm 5'9" and 180 lbs and slept comfortably even while ice formed on my rain fly. I started hiking the Appalachian Trail from Springer Mountain this spring. Started March 27 and traveled 160 miles in 21 days. This bag did great. There were nights I woke with ice on my tent and I still slept comfortably. I haven't used it down to 15 degrees… Full review

Flex Lite Chair

rated 4 of 5 stars Perfect for the backcountry or the neighborhood cookout! This simple little chair goes a long way when you can't find a log to park your rear on. Awesome for early morning stretches to put on boots! Finally got to use my Flex Lite in the backcountry of the Sangres near Crestone, Colorado! I'd been using downed trees as seats every trip since I could remember, and sometimes just the ground... well this added a sense of home luxury to the trip! After a long hike we brought the lightweight, easy to… Full review

Flex Lite Chair

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I am swiftly falling in love with this chair. Value for money is unmatched. I bought this chair to replace one of REI's Camp Stools, as my regular backpacking partner frequently experiences back pains requiring a chair with a back, as opposed to a stool. We have now used it on four trips and a car-camping trip, and we love it. It may not be as light as some chairs and stools out there, but the ability to lean back after a long day of hiking is luscious. Putting the poles into their slots in the… Full review
