Trekker 65

rated 3 of 5 stars Lots of room, comfortable after alteration. Lacks a critical adjustment option, but with some imagination and a trip to your local machine shop the pack can be re-engineered. I like external frame packs because they sit off my back and allow air to circulate. My 25-year-old one finally bit the dust, so I bought the Trekker 65. Unfortunately, the vertical position of the pack on the frame is not adjustable, leaving the pack way too high on the frame. Kelty could not correct the problem, but with… Full review

Domolite 4

rated 5 of 5 stars Best and only tent you need for two people. Absolutely love this tent! Great for any weather including snow, side of mountain, or just camping with a buddy. Light, easy to set up, hasn't ripped yet. Had it for a very long time 20+ years, maybe more. Perfect for stargazing. It's cool in the heat and the accessory cover snaps in at the corners. Airy and roomy for two with a lot of stuff. Kelty should bring this one back for sure! Can't say enough about this tent! It's really worth every penny and… Full review

Cosmic 20

rated 4 of 5 stars Massive bang for the buck... Four and a half stars, so far. I bought this bag a short while ago before leaving for my job as a medic in a summer camp in Maine. That being said, the mercury has hit between 90 and 101 everyday for about a week, so this bag with a European temperature rating of 19 degrees has not seen much use except as a bed throw. Even during early chilly nights I mostly used it as a blanket. By today's standards, 600 fill duck down is not the greatest, but back in the day, any down… Full review

Grand Mesa 2

rated 4 of 5 stars This tent is very easy to set up by one person. With the fly off it is completely a screen for great bug-free viewing. Easy, setup, lots of useful features. Better for one than two people. Value priced when compared to similar tents. Full review

Sierra Crest

rated 5 of 5 stars I love this pack! I have had this pack since 2003. It has seen probably 1,000 trail miles, in all weather conditions. It was one of the few packs at the time I could find for a person with an extra-small torso height, narrow shoulders, and size DD chest that actually worked with the chest strap and arm straps not digging in. Plus, I love the way an external frame pack feels on my body... seems to shift more of the weight to my hips rather than my shoulder tops. At the time (2003), no other packs… Full review
