rated 0.5 of 5 stars The Rubber part are Rubbish! I have had my North Face boots for about three years. Last week when I took them out of the closet to wear in the snow, the rubber lower and leather upper separated. The rubber completely deteriorated from indoor storage. What crap these turned out to be for an expensive boot. All the rubber on the boot is falling apart. DON'T BUY. Shame on you, North Face. I'll get my next pair from LL Bean. They actually stand behind their product. Full review

Meso 2

rated 2.5 of 5 stars I bought this tent for cycling and hiking trips. Used it four times and it is coming apart. The mechanism on the flying sheet, to attach it to tent, just falls off.

Ventilation: Good Room and Storage: Considering its light weight and reason I purchased it is small but perfect. Packability: Good Ease of Use: Easy  Features: Flying… Full review

VE 24

rated 5 of 5 stars Survived the test of time. I purchased my tent in the late '70s and used it in all conditions—backpacking, car camping, and many cross-country and cross-state motorcycle trips.

I think some of the smartest decisions I've ever made was to buy quality and the VE-24 is pure quality. Oh yeah I'll bring along that Swiss Army knife from the late '70s. Full review

Assault 2

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Great tent for beginner mountaineers before investing in a far more expensive tent. Better used for summits or snow, out of sight of rain. We backpacked South America. The cold, perfect. Warmer weather, there is not enough ventilation for air to circulate unless front and back are open, but the rain getting in is the next problem. Use this tent to "assault" a mountain, quick and fast set up and down. Don't expect to live in it in all four seasons in one place for a couple of days. A bare minimum… Full review

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bought these boots on clearance and stored them in the box under the bed. First time they were worn they cracked all the way across the toe on both boots. Complete garbage! Boots looked and felt great until I tried to wear them on my first winter trip. Both boots cracked across the toe.   Full review
