Camera Base Layer

rated 4 of 5 stars Unique and usable way to protect your camera while around your neck or in your bag. As a member of another website, I sometimes receive gear to test in exchange for a review, and this is one time I know I will use it! As a nature and wildlife photographer, I’m outside shooting pictures in every type of weather, both on land and sea. I needed something to protect my camera from the elements, but also need it to be lightweight and easy to put on/remove. I ordered the Camera Base Layer and an additional… Full review

Freerain 24

rated 5 of 5 stars Needed a durable, lightweight, and small packed daypack for peak bagging. The Matador FreeRain24 ended up being perfect! Needed a daypack to use on a recent backpacking trip. Was going to do some day hikes and summit attempts from basecamps so needed a small pack that wouldn't take up much space or add too much weight to my 65l backpack.  At 5 oz and about the size of an apple when packed down, this appeared to be perfect. Took it out for a summit attempt, loaded it up for an 8-hour trek and headed… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Overall, I would highly recommend the Matador DL16 backpack to anyone. Not only is this a quality piece of gear for the avid camper and hiker, it has a multitude of other uses; from carrying around school books and laptops on campus, to holding souvenirs and passports while exploring a new country. This backpack is truly a great investment and is something that I look forward to using on a variety of future adventures.

NanoDry Shower Towel

rated 5 of 5 stars Very quick absorbing and drying. Cleverly designed silicon case allows you to easily transport it and let it keep drying on-the-go. As a member of another website, I was given this product in exchange for a review. I have other travel towels, but nothing this size that is this light, this packable, and this quick drying. It's a total keeper. Well, I actually forgot it at a different campground a few days later, but it's something I am happy to pay to replace. I would wake up, have a shower, lay… Full review

Camera Base Layer

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Was great at keeping my camera dry, even during some rainstorms. I am a big fan of how lightweight it is, but it comes at the expense of providing what I feel is adequate protection for some high impact situations. Overall a very good option for a lightweight camera bag. As a member of another website, I sometimes get the opportunity to test different products in exchange for a review. I photograph a lot on my adventures with a DLSR and noticed the Matador Base Layer, and a lightweight, protective… Full review
