Therm-a-Rest Trail Lite

A great company with a lifetime warranty on their camping mats, and mats that will give you a comfortable night's sleep. Therm-a-Rest are brilliant camping mats for a good night's sleep and I can't rate the company highly enough. The mats have a lifetime warranty and there's also a brilliant repair service for punctures and valves so you will only need to buy one in your lifetime. I bought my Therm-a-Rest mattress 20 years ago and have used it for hiking trips and car camping trips a few times per… Full review

U.S. Military MSS (Modular Sleep System) Patrol

I have the Patrol bag from the MSS. Nice outer bag with top grade mil spec materials. Grabbed it on sale for $50 CAD. Have seen the system with Bivy bag and Intermediate bag for reasonable dollars. Looking forward to some early fall deer hunting camp. Always understood that military specifications were standards that were rigorous and that gear approved for our nation's forces was made to hold up to hard use and give years of service. Good enough for the military, then that is good enough for me. Full review

Therm-a-Rest Z-Seat

The Z-Seat is a lightweight and inexpensive piece of camp furniture. It will never replace the comfort of a camp chair, but it's also multipurpose, simple, and easy to carry for thousands of miles.   Accordion-folding foam pads are a ubiquitous piece of gear that have been around for a long time. The Therm-a-Rest Z-Seat is a pared-down version of the popular Z Lite pad. Both utilize the same materials, but the Z-Seat has more compact folds and sections. (As an aside, an old Z Lite pad can be cut… Full review

Sierra Madre Puffle 55°

A lightweight down blanket for late spring and early summer.     I was looking for a lighter weight alternative to my heavyish poncho liner and my homemade polarfleece bag, both of which weigh upwards of two lbs. Down blankets seem to be all the rage these days and, after quite a bit of research, I settled on the Puffle. It comes in three temperature ratings; 20, 40, and 55 degrees, each in waterproof down or synthetic. The material sheds water so I opted for down as it was lighter. I got the… Full review

Marmot Strato Pillow

The Marmot Strato Pillow strikes a good balance between minimalism, comfort, and versatility. Background: I've used a variety of inflatable pillows over the years, as well as pillows fashioned out of excess gear (the stuff-sack pillow method). While such an ultralight solution can suffice for a few nights, a long-distance trail of hundreds to thousands of miles requires days and months of restorative sleep.  My backpacking style focuses on lightweight, minimal gear with a priority given to some… Full review

Ozark Trail Air Mattress Velour Top

Went flat within a few hours—completely defective and no one cares. The air leaks from the seams. Poorly made. They won't take it back. Wasted money. Full review

Sea to Summit Ether Light XT Insulated

Good feature set in a lightweight and comfortable pad. I have been using a NeoAir mattress for over a decade (reviewed in 2009). Being a 5'9" male the women's length (66") fit me well. The old pad held up pretty well, but the valve system required some fiddling to inflate and more time to deflate and pack, and it was a bit narrower than preferred. It was noisy when new, but seemed to become less so with use over the years. In a new pad, I sought one that was 66" long, preferably with bit more width… Full review

Mountain Laurel Designs Spirit Quilt 28°

A kick ass Apex (synthetic) quilt. I've owned my MLD Spirit 28 quilt for about 6-7 years and it's still going strong. I own down quilts and sleeping bags, but if the conditions are likely to be on the moist side this is the quilt that goes with me. I do some longer adventure races and the possibility of rain/snow or getting dunked during a stream ford is always there–this is the right choice for a sleep system. If you have ever owned any of MLD's gear you know that the fit/finish is flawless. Full review
