Mountain 24

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Had to give a send-off for my North Face Mountain 24 that has been sold to a new owner. Guy was going to camp in Sequoia and was going to buy the North Face Assault 3 that I bought recently and realized I didn't need. I offered him the Mountain 24 instead and she is off to Sequoia!

Terra 40

rated 5 of 5 stars Unbelievable find at a thrift store, $8.99. Brand new. Great pack and now is my favorite pack. Looking at doing segments on the Colorado Trail. If you're looking for a great pack, look no more. Love it for light to ultralight backpacking. Highly recommend this pack. Has everything I've been looking for in a pack. Full review

The jacket shed snow very well. Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars This is a modern rectangular sleeping bag, with the feel of high tech, but reminds me of sleeping bags I used when I was a kid. I love it—very warm!

This will certainly be my only sleeping bag for three seasons. I spent a week on a canoe camping trip with this sleeping bag. It is very comfortable—I slept like a baby. It also filled me with nostalgia… Full review

Hedgehog Fastpack GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Great on every count except price (in Australia and UK). I have just bought my second pair of these. The first were probably the best hiking shoes I have owned—and I have owned a lot. In fact, I have given up on my favourite boots for most trips and use these shoes on all but the roughest hiking. Durability: Truly impressive. I estimate I have walked about 2500 km (1500 miles) in them on all sorts of surfaces. They have only just worn through the sole (see photo) while the upper still looks like… Full review
