Talus 33

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Solid, dependable tent. I bought this model of the Talus in 2000 (different color). It has only ever served as a 3-season tent for me (lower fabric is not suitable for snow).  It survived in a hot attic for a couple years when I wasn't backpacking — the seams on the fly de-laminated and the elastics in the poles became increasingly less elastic, but neither failure was catastrophic.

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great bag, I own two. I've got big shoulders so it's a lil'tight on me, but otherwise a great bag for the person stout enough to handle the extra lbs.

Chilkats

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Do not buy them. Wore them once in the snow, seemed fine. Second time I wore them the whole upper section came off. Buy a Euro brand. NF, shame on you! Full review

Thermoball Traction Mule II

rated 4 of 5 stars A very good base camp shoe. About a lb per pair. An excellent camp shoe. Runs small. I wear an 11, and if I want to wear socks with the Thermoball it has to be a low cut running sock; no chance of a wool hiking sock fitting in it. On the plus side, you will not worry walking off you site to use relieve yourself with the Thermoball on. The sole is a few centimeters higher than the footbed, so you foot does not slide around in it. Full review
