Flash 3

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a high quality, long life, and satisfying investment. You want a tent for most of your camping life...this is it. NOTE: This review is for the FLASH 3 model. It could also apply to the FLASH 2. I got the 3, even though it was used for just two people, because of added room and recommendations by others. Purchase: I was given a trade-up discount after calling Sierra Designs to find out how to fix the peeling coating on my 30-year-old Sierra Designs Quad Mountaineering tent. I always feel… Full review

Backcountry Bed Duo SYN 1.5-Season

rated 5 of 5 stars Someone who sleeps with a partner will find this bag has such great design features that they will know the person who designed it loved and hated doing this many times in the past. tThey distilled all these experiences in one great couples bag! I am 5'8" and weigh 240 lbs and my partner is 5'5 "and weighs 130 lbs. Most of my weight is in the belly, cursed that I am! Considering my proportions, this bag was just a little snug at the mid-section when laying flat next to my partner...not too snug… Full review

Light Year 1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I love the ease of this tent to set up. I'm a single woman with arthritic hands, and this tent makes setup a snap. I have an older SD Light Year 1 tent. It was originally purchased for my son TWELVE YEARS AGO when he was in Boy Scouts. He used it on all his pack trips, and I can guarantee not a lot of TLC was given during these first few years. After my son earned Eagle and headed out on his own, he left the tent behind, I'm assuming because he loved his mommy so much (LOL). I started using the… Full review

Bedouin 4

rated 4 of 5 stars Simple common cross pole design made with high quality materials and a few more accoutrements than the average 4P tent. A reliable 3-season family style camping tent that will last you a long time. Standing room. The Bedouin is a solid 4P tent that performs well in three seasons and can be used for four seasons with little concern. It goes up easy, has plenty of headroom and storage, and is made from high quality materials.  Setup: The tent uses a common cross pole design. I have the older model… Full review

Backcountry Bed 600 2-Season

rated 4 of 5 stars Innovative design with no zippers and built-in comforter. Warm below rating for me who usually sleeps cold. Fairly compressible. DriDown works well. Pad stays put in sleeve for good night's sleep. The Backcountry Bed is, as most of you must have heard by now, a new kind of sleep system. It does indeed have the qualities of your bed at home although it is a little harder to get into and out of. I have been using my Backcounty Bed in my yurt at home all winter and have just taken it out into the field… Full review
