Half Dome 2

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Terrible Quality Control. BAD RUNS IN NETTING THROUGHOUT TENT. Same situation with runs found on three different tents purchased "new" from store stock. Same problem but fewer runs on a 2017 model tent. I heard that returned defective tents were being returned to general merchandise stock. REI staff responded to situation with something between ignorance of the problem and indifference. Staff short-changed me on issuing a cash return. This review was posted on the REI website. They took it down… Full review

Flexlite Chair

rated 4 of 5 stars Good camping/hiking chair. Strong and lightweight. Not too packs away fairly small. I have owned this chair for two years and I am happy with it. I cook, eat, and drink my well earned glass of wine after a long day of hiking seated in this chair. Bought one for my GF...she loves it also. In all, it's great to be off the ground. Full review

Trail 40

rated 5 of 5 stars Great carry on travel size, pretty much the max that most airlines will take. Easy access to main compartment. Comfortable. I just bought this pack for a trip to Europe. We are on the trip now and I'm very happy with this as a travel pack. I feel that is an optimum size. I was able to pack in this as a carryon for a three-week trip that includes a weeklong bike trip, so normal spring/summer travel clothes, plus two bike kits, bike shoes, gloves, arm warmers, shell (no helmet, pedals or bike packs).

Camp Dome 2

rated 4 of 5 stars A terrific value for the budget conscious camper. While I love taking my Big Agnes Fly Creek UL1 tent on backpacking trips, it is a bit claustrophobic for car-camping trips, where weight and bulk isn't an issue. So when REI dividends and discount coupons came out, I decided on this tent from REI. A post-Easter trip to Yosemite provided an excellent opportunity to test it. At five pounds, and with a huge stuff sack, this would be stretching it for backpacking. The stuff sack is pretty roomy, so the… Full review

Silk One Liner Sock

rated 4 of 5 stars This liner sock improved my ability to hike and remain blister-free, as advertised. If you're looking to pair a liner sock with wool socks to reduce friction on your feet and avoid blisters, these will do the trick. If you have ever hiked or walked long distance in regular socks and switched to wool socks, you will understand the "revelation" of how much better your feet felt when making the switch. If you haven't tried liner socks inside your wool socks then you haven't had the second revelation:… Full review
