DownMat 7

rated 1 of 5 stars Very expensive for a product that is such poor quality. Don't waste your money. My family (wife and 4 kids) have been backpacking for years with Therm-a-Rests. I thought I would treat mysefl and buy a more comfortable warmer mat. What a mistake. If you like to pay a lot of money for a mat that leaks, this product is for you. I have used this mat for about 10 nights in total and have treated it very delicately. I can not find any holes and the mat still looks like new.   Full review

DownMat 9

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Super comfortable and warm. Not fun to pump without Schnozzle. This is one heck of a nice mat. I sleep better while using it than I do in our bed at home. Really! I'm not sure what it is, but it is extremely comfortable.  The package weight and packed sized are not really all that different from my ultralightweight Therm-a-Rest CampLite, but the sleeping experience is worlds apart.  I am a naturally frugal person. Some call me cheap. Extremely cheap. I was lucky to find this at a flea market,… Full review

DownMat UL 7

rated 5 of 5 stars Best sleeping pad I've ever used in over 40 years of backpacking! I've used this pad for over six years, including in the Michigan U.P. in February in a blizzard, with temperatures reaching 7 below zero! It does EXACTLY what I want it to do, and does it better than any pad I've ever used, in over 40 years of backpacking: It provides a comfortably cushioned sleeping surface; it's very light for its R-rating, and it keeps me warm all night. It's also easy to inflate, with the included Exped Schnozzel… Full review

Travel Box II Plus

rated 5 of 5 stars Large bug net with a built-in floor for full protection. Great for use in shelters or under a tarp. Zippers on two sides make for easy access and lots of tie out points allow for setup in varied conditions. The Exped Travel Box II Plus is a souped up version of their basic, rectangular bug net, meant for multi-person use. They added a floor, side entry zippers, and some additional tie out points. The result is a very functional bug house that provides for a lot of protected space. I set it up in… Full review

Air Pillow UL

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Worked good for a few trips, but one night it just separated at the seam. Worked good for a few trips, but one night it just separated at the seam where the halves are hot glued together. Even with the included patch kit, it is not possible to repair an edge seam split. I won't be buying another one and don't recommend it. The price is too high for such a short lifetime. Full review
