For those willing to accept compromises in the pursuit of a low pack weight, the Poncho UL Tarp provides a reasonably durable, value option for rain gear, pack cover, and shelter—with a few important caveats. The Poncho UL Tarp is at its best as rain wear, pack cover, and shelter in more moderate conditions, but high winds or sustained heavy rain can make the user vulnerable to the elements. However, due to its versatility, it is an ideal multi-use item for day packs, emergency bags, etc. What… Full review
Very light tent rated to three people. Easy to pitch and take down. Great for backpacking with two people. Recommended.

In 2016, GoLite had successfully ‘reloaded’ as My Trail Co, basing their operations out of Denver, Colorado. My Trail Co has resurrected… Full review
My Trail's Storm UL Jacket is a waterproof and breathable shell that gives you a lot for a budget price. With two low zippered pockets, an adjustable hood and cuffs, and armpit zips, it has some features you don't see on a rain shell that retails for under $100. The jacket has an athletic cut that only allows for a lightweight layer underneath it; it is probably a jacket best suited for people with a medium to slender build. Lighter jackets like this can present issues if you expect to be off-trail… Full review
