Venture Jacket

rated 0.5 of 5 stars The lifetime warranty means nothing. The lining in mine has completely deteriorated and the jacket is unusable. And I'm told lifetime warranty = 2 years! Very disappointing. Don't waste your money! Very disappointed with this item, as I thought I was getting something of quality.  The lining has completely deteriorated and the jacket is can only go in the bin.  Their "lifetime" warranty (as I've been informed by email) means two years.   Deceptive adverstising if you ask me!  Don't… Full review

Snow Leopard Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars I've had this pack since 1988. It has completed the AT, the Vermont Long Trail, the Wonderland Trail around Mt. Rainier including a summit of Rainier, and it has seen every inch of around 400 miles of trail and summit in the Catskill Mountains of N.Y. To this day, it has never torn, zippers have not broken, stays have stayed true to my body. It is still (other than the clear faded colors) as good as new. Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is the perfect small family's car camping tent. Extra room, comfort, excellent stability, and durable materials. I've used the North Face Cumulus 3-season, 3-person tent for more than 15 years. I made one repair years ago, unrelated to the tent's durability after my 80 pound dog clawed his way through one of the clear mesh doors to get out and say hi to me cooking bacon one morning. Sadly, it's no longer in production, but if you get a chance to pick one up, take it. This is the perfect tent… Full review

Tadpole 2

rated 5 of 5 stars This is an excellent, storm proof, backpacking tent. It's reasonably lightweight (sub 4lbs), easy to set up, and has terrific interior room. It has a dry entry and a built-in vestibule, and a small footprint. I have used this tent now for two years, and I couldn't be happier. As a mountain guide, I spend a lot of nights in tents, and this one is terrific. It is very livable and comfortable. The pole configuration makes the walls nearly vertical, and the ventilation is superb, even when it's storming. Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars No leaks or wear visible after 18 years, 2-3 trips per year. Once slept 5 (2 shorter adults in middle of 4; slimmest lying at 90 degrees with hip and shoulder in space yielded this way). Four could backpack fine at ave of 1.2kg (2.5lbs) each. Love this—would buy again. Baking hot, snow, hiking, car booting, campsite, wild camping... all accomplished with ease. Anyone who says too heavy, note you can sleep four, unless all large, even five average adults at a squeeze, by moving all kitbags into… Full review
