Diad Pro 22

rated 4 of 5 stars The North Face Diad Pro 22 is a handy little pack that's perfect for day hikes, or even a minimalist overnight trip. Its list of features make it seem a lot bigger than it is. I'm somewhat lacking in small backpacks for three-season day hiking, my MH Snowtastic 28 is really pretty heavy for its capacity and my next larger pack is way too big, so when I saw the TNF Diad Pro 22 for $24 on S&C I scooped it up. When it arrived I unwrapped it and was really surprised by how light it was. TNF says… Full review

McMurdo Parka

rated 2 of 5 stars Not nearly as warm as it looks. All "Cons" mentioned here are spot on. I bought this at Macy's in the winter of 2009 in NYC. I believe I paid about $300 for it. It's not worth $200. I agree with all of the "Cons" I've read about it here: cold arms and upper back, poorly conceived and shaped hood. Useless removable ruff faux fur on the hood. Bizarre placement of adjustment cords (inside hidden pockets). If you have the extra $200 get the Canada Goose. Really heavy-bulky for what it does. Full review


rated 0.5 of 5 stars Same thing happened to me ... I had these and only wore a few times bc I have really cute coach boots and last year we didn't have much snow and this year we didn't have much snow. I got them out of my closet for the second time this year and they cracked same place as all of the others. I am so disappointed bc I loved these for really cold days. Seems to me there is a defect!!!! Same thing happened to mine!! Seems to be a defect if it happened to so many. They should give people their money back! Full review

Stormbreak 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Comfortable, roomy tent for two for most three-season (plus?) adventures. Recommended for backpackers, car-campers. This was our tent of choice, my partner and I, for our Iceland trip last summer. I own a number of tents (yes, I have a problem!), yet we ultimately chose to take the Stormbreak 2 for its combination of: Livable space: the double arch/ spreader pole gives a lot of headroom Double doors: ease of entry/ exit, and we'd be living in it for two weeks nonstop, and so didn't want to crawl… Full review

Roadrunner 22

rated 2.5 of 5 stars I like the design of this tent with twin vestibule/entry. The rainfly has been very problematic in terms of workmanship and longevity. Setup is easy once one you get used to the asymmetric pole positions. The color-coded attachment points are useful. The tent has a very nice footprint with two side vestibules and dual entry points. Shock-corded poles are light and easy to use. The tent is moderately lightweight with compact packability. In fact, one of its selling points for me was the potential… Full review
