Overall it is a great tent—roomy, light, and comfortable both in the desert and above 12,000 feet. Sturdy when pitched well and stands up to storms (though you will notice tiny micro-holes appearing after moderate use). I used this tent for six months (April-September) while hiking the PCT, and I'd make the same tent choice again. Duplex setup in sand with rocks: Is it worth the money?! Yes—IF you plan on getting A LOT of use out of it, or if lowering your base weight is very important… Full review
This is an ultralight three-season sleeping bag (20 oz total). It works great during warmer nights unzipped and open as a quilt. It can be zipped up for colder nights. Zipped up, the fit is expectedly tight. These 900 fill bags come at a premium price. This review is about my Zpacks ultralight 900 Fill Power Goose Down Sleeping Bag - 20 deg Long. I have only used this for one summer/fall season (about 6-7 outings). When reviewing sleeping bags it always seems appropriate to note whether one is a… Full review
This tent provides amazing space and livability in an ultralight package. It provides everything tents weighing three times as much do without really sacrificing anything. Very impressive. The Zpacks duplex is a two-person single-wall cuben fiber (now Dyneema?) shelter that weighs about 22 oz (without stakes or poles—but with all guylines). The amount of room you get for a tent this light is pretty amazing. It is a two-man tent - an like most ultralight two person tents, it would be a tight fit… Full review
The ultimate three-season, two-person backpacking shelter. This is a ridiculously nice shelter. It's really easy to set up, uses 6 to 8 stakes for a taut pitch. It's very stable in wind and hard rain, the bathtub floor stands up to streams flowing under you (don't pitch it in a stream bed...). There is great ventilation, room for two and a 60-lb dog easily. It is easy to pack up small. All in all it's just fantastic if you can get past the price. One month's rent for a tent is quite a bit, but I… Full review
Nice warm bag. I have been down to the low 20s with it. Have you ever had to get out of your sleeping bag at night for a bathroom break and had the zipper snag? A small hassle in daylight, a pain in the ass at night. My wife asked me what I wanted for Christmas a few years ago, so I asked for a new sleeping bag. I got the wide 30-degree bag from ZPACKS so it would be more comfortable in cool weather and I could wear a puffy jacket and fleece pants if it got cold. NO ZIPPER. NO HOOD—Getting in… Full review
