rated 4.5 of 5 stars Best ultralight night of sleep, especially in the cold, also doubles as a fun raft! This pad is an all-around winner, providing excellent support for a side sleeper like myself. I've heard others complain about the noisiness of the lightweight material, but between the floor of the tent, my sleeping bag, pillow and the rush of the wilderness, it's not distinguishable to me. Another issue that may arise is the extra few minutes of inflating, but with a pump sack, it only takes two and a half pumps. Full review

NeoAir Venture

rated 4 of 5 stars Perfect for backcountry camping. I recently purchase one of these for a recent alpine expedition. I did not want to bring my old T/R feeling it was too bulky. After spending a couple of nights sleeping on some high elevation broken scree I am glad for the extra loft the Venture gave me. I never felt a thing. I like that it rolls to the size of a water bottle since there was a lot of scrambling and pack size mattered. It takes a lot of air to fill, so check some of the local hacks to fill. Full review

Slacker Snuggler

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Slacker Snuggler is a great little underquilt. I think it’s a perfect fit for hanging in summer, late spring, and early fall.

The Snuggler is about half the cost of similarly rated down quilts, but easier to use and maintain. The Slacker Snuggler came without any instructions, and there are no instructions for use or care on the Therm-a-Rest website; an insert of some variety showing… Full review

RidgeRest SOLite

rated 4 of 5 stars A technologically advanced closed-cell sleeping pad, offering very good warmth and lightweight in this class. Though it is less durable in comparison to traditional pads, and its ridged surface may not be liked by everyone. I’d been using this sleeping pad (in Regular size) from 2013 to 2016. Before and after this one I'd used the traditional closed-cell foam pads with smooth surface. The bulkiness is not a problem for bicycle tours, as the pad always rides outside the bag, and it also makes a… Full review

Slacker Hammock House

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Slacker Hammock House is the “grand slam” Therm-a-Rest needed to prove they are a worthy contender in the hammock market. The Hammock House is both a reliable all-in-one system and an exceptional value for the money. I came away from this test greatly impressed and eager to recommend this system to anyone looking to start backpacking with a hammock. Because I feel the need to discuss each component of the Hammock House in detail, this is a very long review. If you are not a detail-oriented… Full review
