Aeros Premium Pillow

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A lot of backpackers look at pillows as luxury items and leave them behind because they are too heavy or bulky. The new Sea to Summit Aeros Premium Pillow is definitely a luxury item because it affords its users serious comfort and support, but it weighs less than four ounces and compresses to the size of a lemon. Even more surprising, is that it has five and a half inches of loft and almost covers the width of your sleeping pad. For side-sleepers who require extra loft and support, this pillow… Full review

Ultra-Sil Day Pack

rated 4 of 5 stars A minimal day pack for short side trips on longer backpacking trips. No promises on comfort, and it is not very durable or waterproof, but that's reasonable given the small weight and size. I wouldn't recommend it for all-day hikes but it fills its niche well. We brought a pair of these along on our JMT through hike, and my daughter and I did several side trips to some of the nearer and easier summits using them. Short side trips when carrying larger pack are all I ever intend to use it for. When… Full review

Accessory Straps

rated 2 of 5 stars Metal hook cannot withstand rated load. I purchased a set of the 3/4" version of these straps to attach a bear canister to my external frame backpack. These straps are supposed to be rated in excess of 440 pounds according to the packaging. My bear canister with a week's supply of food weighed approximately 15 pounds. The metal hooks on the straps have slowly started to spread, so it is just a matter of time before failure occurs. Full review

Solution Gear Access Deck Bag

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good deck bag for keeping bare essentials at hand. Minimizes wind/water drag over bulkier designs. I've used this deck bag in high-wind situations, where a more bulky design would have caught and created excess weather-cocking. The bag was big enough for a small 1st aid kit, beach blanket, and my point & shoot camera. There was room for some small snacks and a water bottle, too. There is an internal framesheet that keeps the rounded shape of the bag. This also makes it harder to stow-away, as… Full review

Micro MC II

rated 5 of 5 stars I had forgotten how clever I thought this bag was. It is meant to be light, so don't complain about what it lacks but they try to compensate in other ways. They have just tried to leave the essential bits. The zipper baffle is stiffened just enough to stop it snagging.   It lacks a box foot to save weight... this allows you to open it completely like a quilt and vent the foot end of the bag but you may have to hitch the hole under you on truely cold nights.   The stylish black inner is I assume… Full review
