Lightning HT 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Good all-rounder: durable, quality materials, good construction, weatherproof, quite spacious for two for a lightweight backpacking tent. Lightweight (if not quite ultralight by today's standards) tent. Good all-rounder, backpacking oriented, durable, spacious for two. Most comparable to the MSR Hubba Hubba, I consider this tent better because it's a tad lighter, considerably more spacious, better colours, and just different/unique. Frame design makes it wider at the top in the middle than at the… Full review

Sweet Suite 3

Backcountry Bed 700 / 20 Degree

Great for side sleepers and folks that get out of the bag at night and hate struggling with zippers half-asleep. As a side sleeper using a CPAP, I've always struggled with sleeping bags. My "go-to" bag for 20-40 degree weather is either a Kelty Cosmic 20 or Cosmic 0 bag. They work, but the 20 is more like a 30-degree bag and the 0 is more like a 20-degree bag. When Sierra Designs released the zipperless… Full review

Cloud 800 / 20 Degree

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A bag with the magic of 800 fill DriDown for about $100 less than the other bags in the same weight category. Sierra Designs Cloud 20 800 fill down Regular: 1 lb 13 oz In the mountains you need your gear to be as light as possible and still able to do its job. Being light reduces fatigue and lets you move through hazard zones faster thereby reducing your exposure to risk. In short, light is right. Another philosophy is summarized by, “pack light, freeze at night,” the idea that comfort and good… Full review
