rated 3.5 of 5 stars The Big Agnes McKinnis is a lightweight, down insulated sleeping bag designed for minimalist trips, bike packing, or any time some extra insulation is needed within your sleep system. Versatile enough to go from your warm weather summer bag to a winter liner, I believe the McKinnis would be an excellent addition to many people's kits. The main point I’d like to see redesigned is the hood shape as it currently doesn’t add much function. WARMTH No temperature rating is given for the McKinnis so… Full review


rated 3.5 of 5 stars An extremely light and comfortable sleeping pad suitable for its intended use—warm summer nights. Besides comfort and being extremely lightweight, it packs small and easily, has a good design to prevent roll-off, is relatively easy to inflate, and seems cooler on warm summer nights.

Insulated Air Core Ultra

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Does not seem as heavy material as original Q-Core. I had the older model Q-Core and while it took a bit to inflate, it was a very nice sleeping platform and served me well until leaks started for some reason. The first product was returned to REI after a failure of the valve that occurred during a fire camp in Washington state. It made some tough sleeping for the two weeks on that wildland fire. I deploy several times a year and sleep is pretty important after working 15 hours straight. I repaired… Full review

Fly Creek UL1

rated 4 of 5 stars The lightest tent I've ever owned. I used mine several times and found that though it's light, it didn't afford the room and access I like, so I sold it. Full review
