Klymit Static V2

I found myself a great sleeping system in the KLYMIT Static V2 sleeping pad. Because it roles up so small, it's perfect for my backpacking adventures. I've edited together a video review of the KLYMIT Static V2 sleeping pad.  This little sleeping pad is not inexpressive, however I think it was worth the price I paid based on all the comfortable nights sleep it has provided me while out on the trail. Please check out my video overview of this fine product: Note, if the above video does not play,… Full review

Therm-a-Rest Men's ProLite

A spartan self-inflating pad, lacking the warmth and comfort of most other inflatable pads. Good for those who need the lightest possible and the most compact pad while keeping it relatively durable and affordable. Otherwise, there are better options in various pad departments. In comparison to 15-mm foam pad, 50 cm width (20") In the daily usage I prefer 15-mm thick foam pads (20" / 50 cm width), like Therm-a-rest Ridgerest, or cheap equivalents with similar thickness. These pads are lightweight,… Full review

Hammock Gear Premium Incubator 20°

Bigger in size with a finer down than its ECO version, Hammock Gear’s Premium Incubator 20 is one of the best full-price gear purchases I have ever made. Once again the cottage industry proves its superiority to shelved items at REI. I suffer from a hiking condition known as CBS (Cheap B@st@rd Syndrome). If you look over my gear reviews you will see loads of sentences like, “I bought this on clearance,” or “It was on sale.” And I often steer clear of name-brand stuff, unless I pick it… Full review

Sea to Summit Premium Silk Travel Liner

Perfect for traveling and staying in hotel conditions where they use harsh laundry soaps. I purchased this Sea to Summit item on a recent trip to GA to use to give me a barrier to the harsh laundry soaps used in the hotel I was staying in. I have travelled for a couple of years with a larger lightweight sleeping bag, but it was taking up too much space in my one piece of luggage. This was an expensive switch to a newer lighter weight and smaller solution, but one I am happy to say was a perfect… Full review

Outdoor Vitals StormLoft 30-Degree Down TopQuilt

The 30 Degree Down TopQuilt is one of the most affordable, lightweight and reliable sleeping bag options on the market. Weighing just 18 ounces, it's built like a workhorse but performs in an elegant way. If you’re looking for an affordable-yet-reliable quilt for backpacking, look no further. Outdoor Vitals’ 30 Degree Down TopQuilt is unmatched in its efficiency. The 800fp quilt is compressible beyond relief, warm when it counts and it still costs a fraction of competitive products.  The 30… Full review

The North Face Lightrider

Durable, warm, relatively lightweight, very comfortable mummy, small pack size, all-around good summer bag. I have and regularly use four mid '80s era (red label) The North Face Light Rider down sleeping bags. I've had them for about 25 years. They are still going strong. They're warm to just slightly below their rated 35°F, and pack down to a respectable 6" x 15".  They weigh in at 1 Lb. 12 ozs.  While not "ultra light" they're still light enough to be useful.  While 550 down is considered… Full review

Western Mountaineering SummerLite

I have tested WM Summerlite in the Colorado Rockies (say, above 9000 feet), where you can expect frosty nights at any time. I would not recommend to venture out, even in midsummer, with less than a 20°F bag. BUT 32°F Summerlite did quite well in keeping me comfortable in July. I was dressed very warmly, ofc. (comfortable is the right word here, not warm). I guess this is because of the comtinious baffles; there's an unbroken four-inch layer of down separating the two nylon shell fabrics. This… Full review

Outdoor Vitals LoftTek Hybrid MummyPod

Outdoor Vitals' LoftTek Hybrid MummyPod sleeping bag offers an unconventional approach to sleeping in the backcountry. Designed to function as either a sleeping bag or an under quilt, this product is as clever as it is reliable. Outdoor Vitals is known for providing reliable backcountry sleeping bags for a fraction of the cost of competitive products. They believe that we'll have less of an impact on the environment if we invest in quality products that can be used for a lifetime. And the LoftTek… Full review

The North Face Women's Blue Kazoo

Lightweight and comfortable, packs small. I bought this bag to replace my VERY old (one of the originals) Blue Kazoo bag, which had weathered the Long Trail, PCT, and CDT, along with many shorter adventures. It was a trusty friend. I found the new one to be adequate, but nothing great for the price. Has some nice features, listed in the pros, but overall I found it to be less than I expected given the quality of the original and the price. I had big cold spots when it went below about 40 degrees,… Full review
