Lowa Men's Renegade GTX Lo

Very comfortable shoes, but with weakpoints and too expensive for not repairable shoes. I have had several pairs of these shoes of several model years. The foam/fabric… Full Review »

Hike-N-Light Tyvek tent footprints

An inexpensive alternative to tent manufacturer's nylon footprints, but not set up for a fly-first or fly-only pitch. Some assembly required, and hard to keep clean. Full Review »

Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket

For its money the best lightweight jacket I have had. Beat the OMM Kamleika one (3x the price) hands down. Just needs a better hood visor. So when I got my OMM Kamleika… Full Review »
