Nebula Tent

rated 5 of 5 stars Best of many three- and four-season tents I've owned. Supported 8 inches of wet snow in Minnesota. Held up to 50 mph winds in Utah. Didn't leak a drop in a heavy three-day rain in Oregon's Columbia River Gorge. Wish I could find another as a backup. Full review

Double Headed Toad 44 BX

rated 5 of 5 stars My wife and I bought this tent used four years ago and have used it many times since. It is the perfect tent, and I would recommend it to anyone. We are a family of four—our boys are now 11 and 8—and our Double Headed Toad has served us well in a wide range of camping situations. It's so easy to set up that I trained the kids to do it, and they can have it pitched in a couple of minutes.

It can carry enough gear for most day trips while being comfortable to carry. The only negative issue I have found is that when fully packed the mesh water bottle holders are a bit tight for a 32 oz bottle. Full review


rated 0.5 of 5 stars Made from improper materials. My Chilkats are maybe three years old and I wear them solely for snowblowing during New England winters. I've worn them approximately fifteen times. When they're not on my feet, they're stored in the house. About four weeks ago, I took them out of the closet and found the right boot had four or five major cracks in the rubber material, wide enough to expose the insulation inside. Then, a few weeks later, the same thing happened to the left boot! This is clearly a failure… Full review

Banchee 65

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very comfortable carry with efficient weight transfer to hip belt and an airy suspension, plus excellent load management and organization: as good as my old external frame pack in these areas while also being much lighter and having the control and balance of an internal frame pack. Model reviewed: 2016/2017 season Banchee 65 Men's L/XL Star rating: 4.5—personally, I'd probably give it a full 5, but there's always room for improvement, right? And who am I to be saying something is 5 star when… Full review
