Quarter Dome UL

rated 2 of 5 stars great tent. Easy set up and good design. The only problem is the polyurethane coating used on the fly and low sidewalls deteriorates within two seasons and becomes a sticky mess! It should be a warranty issue but it usually occurs after two years and not the one year "we got your back" "satisfaction guarantee". My Eureka car camping tent, my ancient North Farce VE and even a 1990's Walrus have none of the sticky carp issues.  Full review

Trekker Wonderland

rated 5 of 5 stars Best pack by far that I have ever had! All kinds of room for organizing your gear for easy access on the trail. The Wonderland is very easy to adjust for a comfortable fit, easy to adjust on the fly when the trail goes from a climb to a descent. This pack is my favorite that I have every used. Bought it brand new at the R.E.I. in Seattle over 20 years ago and it is still in like new condition even with the abuse that I have put it through. Only question I have after reading all of these reviews… Full review

Trail 30 Pack

rated 4 of 5 stars This is an extraordinarily comfortable day pack that can hold more than expected. I really love this pack for a nice day trip where maybe you bring a hammock instead of a tent. It fits all the essentials (except sleeping bag) nicely with room to spare. I love the hip belt pockets and the extra long compression straps on the outside of the pack. The straps allow you to tighten the pack down a good amount, giving it a much smaller mass and more comfort. It reminds me very much of the way my A.L.I.C.E. Full review

Kingdom 6 Tent

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I love this tent!! I love that this tent has enough room for me and my daughter to have our cots, tables, and odds and ends! We take it anytime we need to sleep out somewhere. I have had this for 2 years and just experienced its first rainstorm. Crazy mountain rainstorm!! It stayed totally dry inside!! Love it even more. I will be buying the garage next month! Definitely buy the footprint. Worth every penny. Full review

Base Camp 6

rated 5 of 5 stars Have used this tent for five years. Love it. Perfect car camping tent. Dry in the rain, star view without the rain fly.  Full review
