Great Basin

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Shape, how hard to set up, price for product, product safety, water leaks, breakage of zipper for door, and windows, screen in area. Tent has a neat looking setup and natural neutral colors, but the design is waist in more ways than it different. As to would I recommend this product, is maybe, depending on whom I was talking to and what product was and is to be used for, just camping with smaller children, yes for larger ones, no. What is product best for would be different style. This product can… Full review

Camp Pad

rated 5 of 5 stars An ultra-light (7oz) , minimalist sleeping pad that surprised me with both its quality and its price ($12). Anyone seeking to move into ultralight camping or simply lighten their pack load should seriously consider buying this inexpensive little gem of a sleeping pad. If after spending $12-$14 you don't like it, you won't feel buyer's remorse. First off, I would have never bought one of these on my own. Every pad I've ever used says "Therm A Rest" on it. When my son won one of these in Cub Scouts… Full review

StarLite

rated 2 of 5 stars The Wenzel StarLight tent is best used for backyard camping or perfect weather, where bugs, not rain, are the only concern.

I spent a week trapped in the Wenzel StarLight during my first backpacking… Full review

StarLite

rated 3 of 5 stars A $29 tent that, with minor modifications, weighs 1 lb. 15 oz. packed. I actually bought this in the '90s for a canoe trip that I did not take because I became ill. Since then, it sat among my camping stuff. And sat. And sat. Until I decided last year to see whether I could cut its weight and use it as an alternative to my ultralight hammock setup. Here are the modifications I made: Threw away the heavy stakes and replaced them with ultralight stakes from MSR Tossed the foot pole and replaced it… Full review

StarLite

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I'll start with the only negative thing about it..it's not waterproof...which can be solved with a coating of waterproofing spray. Other than that.. it's a great tent.. I've read reviews saying that the Starlight it's not that easy to set up. that's not true! Hiking the Appalachian Trail the first week of April of 2010, it was already getting dark by the time I got to the place I'd be camping for the night, and set up the tent in less than 5 minutes. there was a thunderstorm that night, so i had… Full review
