Titanium Ascent Tent Stake

rated 1.5 of 5 stars These stakes bend easily. My girlfriend made last Christmas a titanium Christmas. One of the presents I received were Vargo Titanium Ascent tent stakes. I was delighted to find them in my stocking and I was amazed at how light they were. Unfortunately my first experience using them was in moderately high winds for east Texas and my tent collapsed due to the stake bending. I easily straightened it out and continued using the stake for the remainder of my trip, but I have gone back to the aluminum… Full review

Bedrock 1/4 Zip

rated 4 of 5 stars A midweight, quarter zip long-sleeve shirt, the Bedrock is a durable option for any cooler time of the year. It’s a tight fit for slimmer bodies, but is fleece lined and breathes well due to side stretch panels and ability to unzip collar. The fleece holds sweat, but the TiFusion (titanium infused) fabric wicks and fights odor really well. I’d recommend for any non-summer (at least non-humid) season for any activity where durability and constant use is a factor. There are a lot of similarities… Full review

Slag Short-Sleeve Shirt

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Vargo Slag is a lightweight, short-sleeve tee which works well as an all-purpose shirt, though it does have a trim fit design.

If you’re active and prefer… Full review

Titanium Pocket Cleats

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The Vargo Pocket Cleats are a front foot traction option for light hiking and running. I found that they are best for trail running on level terrain or for those interested in a lightweight backup traction device. I had the opportunity to test the Vargo Pocket cleats on the back roads and trails of the White Mountain region of New Hampshire. I found them to be well made and an innovative use of titanium. However, they were not well suited for all applications I tested them in. Ease of Use: The design… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Vargo Triad titanium stove is a very lightweight, durable stove. It sells for around $30 which depending on how much you'll use it plays a factor as well. This stove is a neat, little compact stove I came across while looking into alcohol stoves. The stove is lightweight, being made of titanium, yet very durable. It weighs a mere ounce and you hardly know it's in your pack or even your pocket! The stove includes 6 retractable legs (3 on top 3 on bottom.) They recommend that the bottom three… Full review
