New Star

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The performance of this pack has been unbelievable. Durable, comfortable, versatile...it was a great. I bought this pack in 1994.  Anyone have an older one?  Mine, I must say, is worn out.  It has been a great friend and I am a little sad that I need to replace it.  I believe that I easily put 2000 miles on it.

Hang Time Chair

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The REI Hang Time Chair is extremely comfortable and ideally suited to car camping. It is one of those chairs that everyone will be trying to sit in, so lay claim to it early—if it belongs to you. I have covered my impressions of this chair pretty well in the pros and cons list. I don't have much else to add other than the fact that inserting the backrest tubes can take a little bit of effort for someone that is not mechanically inclined. But not a problem for the most part. The reclining angle… Full review

Gemini 50L Pack

rated 4 of 5 stars Interesting hybrid pack-on-a-pack design; don't ignore the volume potential between the two packs. One of my two go-to packs; the other is a Mountainsmith Ghost. Not cutting edge for 2016 any more, but somehow a few years back I got out of the "buy new packs every year" mode. For longer trips—more than three days—or trips where I might camp and then day hike, this one is the one I carry. If you're a packrat, and you see one of these for a price that seems reasonable, consider buying it. Full review

Mountain 3

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I bought this tent in 2010 and used it every single weekend 51 weeks a year for three years. It gets the job done. I've owned a few four-season tents and at MSRP price point this one is the best. It's shame it was discontinued. I've camped this tent in every season here in Colorado. For a few years there it was out 51 weekends a year. From that I can tell you that it's really durable. I can also tell you that from 50+mph winds to 12" of wet snow to driving rain it will come through like nothing… Full review

Down Vest

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The is a good quality down vest that is available at a very reasonable price that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone looking to pick up a down vest to put in their pack. I have been very focused on reducing the base weight of my pack and one area that I made a lot of changes to was what insulating layers I would bring for my summer hikes in the Sierras. My upper layer of clothes now consists of a base wicking shirt, a pullover lightweight fleece, a wind shirt, a down vest (the subject of… Full review
