Klymit Insulated Hammock V

Goes flat every 20 minutes. Multiple leaks. Bought pad Brand New and used once. Absolute Garbage. Good intention but poor execution and materials. I wish Therm-a-Rest made a similar pad. I bought it brand new at the Boy Scout Store in Atlanta. Next day I drove to the Blue Ridge Mountains here in Georgia. After I hiked in to camp I set up a ground sheet for keeping stuff of the ground, set up my Warbonnet Blackbird XLC (American Made) and then inflated the Insulated hammock V Pad (Chinese). Went… Full review

Exped Ultra 1R

Exped's lightweight and easy to use Ultra 1R sleeping pad is quiet, durable, and provides substantial comfort throughout a wide temperature range. Paired with a short CCF (closed-cell foam) pad, the Ultra 1R proved to be comfortable down to the mid-30°F range on the 93-mile Wonderland Trail in Mount Rainier National Park in September 2022. Although this sleeping pad is aimed toward lightweight/ultralight hikers, any camper looking for a compact and durable sleeping pad may find this product more… Full review

Exped Ultra Pillow

Far superior to extra clothing stuffed in a stuff sack. Inflating is no-brain easy, deflating is cumbersome. This is my second Exped pillow. The first one developed too many leaks to patch, however it came with separate inflation/deflation valves which made it super fast and simple to deflate. This "new" version has only one valve for both inflating and deflating. To deflate, one has to very carefully align the deflation "tool" over an extremely flexible spike which is attached to the actual flap… Full review

Exped Ultra Pillow

The Exped Ultra Pillow is an extremely small and inflatable pillow that can make a big difference in one’s quality of rest on the trail. As a backpacking pillow it is small enough to take almost anywhere, plus it is an easy-to-use product that comes in handy for air travel or a car road trip. Snow Lake, Washington "Pillow talk" may be sometimes considered taboo, and discussions related to pillows in the backcountry can be equally questionable. Some people shun the idea, thinking of extravagance… Full review

Wiggy's Super Light FTRSS

Good all around bags. Combined they're incredible. Easy to clean, pack, great kit. Being retired Military, I have used some incredibly crappy sleep systems.  Frankly, so bad it bordered on criminal to issue them to the troops.  But that's what we get. I discovered Wiggy's oddly enough by the boots he made. Lamilite insulated leather boots that were freaking amazing.  So I figured if those worked, well.................. I invested in the FTRSS system in the boat foot style bags. I've never looked… Full review

Ozark Trail Air Mattress Velour Top

Zero stars. 20+ years experience of sleeping on air mattresses. This is by far the worst ever. Zero stars. I have regularly used air mattresses for 20+ years one weekend a month in a room full of teens. I was excited about the extra height this single air mattress had. As I age I need height to get up easier. I expect an air mattress to survive 2-3 years. This one did not even get me through two nights. I understand stretching, so I tried it again for several more nights. Never have I had an air… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Air Head Pillow

Therm-a-Rest Air Head Pillow—just the ticket to reduce that aching neck.   After countless nights on the trail trying to repeatedly position my head on makeshift bundles of clothing or puffy jackets and still waking up with a neck ache, I was just about to break down and get a pillow. As I am counting ounces I didn’t want to add any “unecessary” items. And along came the Air Head! I tried it in conjunction with the Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Topo Luxe (separate review) air mattress and for the… Full review

Therm-a-Rest MondoKing 3D

Best pad for car camping I'm not a young chickadee anymore. I bought this pad and I spend a lot of time camping with my son's Boy Scout Troop. My regular Therm-a-Rest from 1998 wasn't exactly doing the job.  This bad boy is big and bulky but feels like your mattress at home. I don't even need a cot. I live in Upstate New York and as added plus this pad is extremely warm and insulating.  Full review

Patagonia Fitz Roy 30°

The Fitz Roy is a well-made, roomy, three-season down sleeping bag. Vertical baffles and a center zipper set this apart from many comparable bags. I particularly appreciated the quiet fabric, well-shaped hood and foot box, and dual baffles flanking that center zipper. True ultralighters may find this too bulky and heavy (short weighs 28 oz., regular 29 oz., long 30 oz.), but this is three-season bag should serve backpackers and car campers well. INTRODUCTION Patagonia is a relatively new participant… Full review
