Modular Sleep System MSS

rated 5 of 5 stars It comes in three to four parts, where you can sleep in one part, two parts, three parts or four. I have slept in it all together and I had to open it up sometime during the night because I had gotten too warm. Come to find out it had gotten below freezing that night. I have also slept in just one part, the temp was at around 100° to 110° that night. Although it was hot, I was comfortable. Compresses down to about the size of a basketball, although it could probably compress smaller. Three to… Full review

CFP 90

rated 4 of 5 stars Another fine military item that has already been reviewed on Trailspace. I just wanted to back up what's already been said. I'll cover the camo colors, negative aspect of large-capacity, and some low costs. I'm 6 feet, 2 inches tall and the CPU-90 fits me well. I'm a Leave No Trace Master Educator in southeast New Mexico and I use this pack and the Marine Corps MARPAT pack when I teach the LNT Trainers Course (the Trainers Course is not a backpacking class but a certification class for LNT trainers… Full review

Poncho Liner Woobie

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a great multi-purpose camping/hiking resources. I have had mine nearly 30 years and it's still as good as when it was new, only a little less stiff. I got mine early in my military career and when I retired it came with me. It has been good in cool evenings and summer camping. Does not replace a sleeping bag in my opinion, unless you are in warm climate. If paired with a military poncho as designed, it does replace a sleeping bag in moderate climates.  I love this in a hammock during the… Full review

Poncho Liner Woobie

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Get your woobie on. One of the top inventions by the U.S. Military, the poncho liner (aka woobie) is very lightweight and is nice on mild nights as a wrap or can up the warmth of sleeping bags on colder nights. I'm amazed that no one has ever reviewed probably one of the best ever sleeping and warming inventions. It's the military poncho liner, aka woobie (don't ask me where the name woobie came from—it goes back to time of invention).  I was in the Infantry for 10 years and came to love the… Full review

Universal Improved Combat Shelter

rated 3 of 5 stars Universal Improved Combat Shelter Military Two-walls, low-profile freestanding tent by Orc Industries For 1-2 person (1.5 person tent) Color: Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP) Dimensions Outer: 250x170x88 mm Dimensions Inner: 240x100x83 mm Weight: 2.9 kg I would love this tent if it was truly one-person (instead of 1.5 person) with outer dimensions:  200x140x95 (2.2 kg) instead of 250x170x88 (2.9 kg) Plus painted olive green or one of RealTree patterns (instead of UCP, which is useless in forest)… Full review
