rated 4 of 5 stars Durable, moderate weight, moderate packability. Setup: Because this tent stretches nice and tight and has very little flapping in the wind or pooling of rainwater, it also takes some practice to set it up efficiently. But overall it's not too bad. My main complaint with setup is that the model I bought in 2002 still used pole sleeves rather than clips and the poles had to be threaded through this in a crisscross manner and this is kind of annoying.  Stability: I have camped in some windy locations… Full review

Blue Kazoo

rated 4 of 5 stars Good bag, true to temp rating, excellent durability. Would take it anywhere. The Blue Kazoo is a great bag. I can't say that I have a strong basis of comparison because I have been using the same Blue Kazoo since college 10 years ago. I believe it is true to its 20-degree rating and I have taken it much lower than that by wearing clothes and using a tent and sleeping pad. To attest to its durability, not only have I stuffed it in my pack on numerous treks, and used it to crash on couches, it it… Full review

Crestone 75

rated 5 of 5 stars Comfort is the one word I would use to describe this pack. Plenty of room and great support. Great pack with enough room for a thru hike. Love this pack, a bit on the heavy side though. Full review

Surgent Full Zip Hoodie

No zippers could be a problem but the jacket has inside pockets on each side for storing things more safely and saving the outside pockets for hands. As the day warmed up, it was eventually too hot, and tied nicely around the waste. Great price too! All-around… Full review

Tadpole 23

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great tent, lightweight, quick setup, and excellent ventilation. Small packed size and weight helps to keeps loads in your pack light and tight. Nice vestibule area for packs. Great for extended solo trips or lightweight 2-person trips. I would recommend this tent to a friend. This tent has been my solo shelter for years for solo trips or trips when I don't feel like having a tent-mate. It's luxurious for one person and plenty or room for your pack in the roomy vestibule. It'll hold two but I suggest… Full review
