Latest Reviews


rated 5 of 5 stars Great bag for winter camping used on a mat. My wife and I each purchased an Ibex in the mid 1970s. Have used on many winter backpacking trips in the Smoky Mountains, and many fall and summer backpacking trips as well as wilderness canoe trips in Canada and BWCA, week-long bicycle trips, and fall camping in Wisconsin. Fantastic bags as held up well and are still in use. Have had repairs to zipper (replaced), fabric tears, and need for down replacement all under warranty except need to have bag cleaned.

Hightail 3S 15

rated 5 of 5 stars Perfect. A great find after lots of research. I did a lot of research on bags of this temperature rating that were under one kilo. This bag replaced a much heavier sleeping bag and it seems every bit as warm. I have not had it down to the rated 15 deg. F, but I believe with long johns and good insulation under it, it would be satisfactory for me at 15 deg. F.  (I am a warm sleeper, by the way). I have had lots of well made mummy bags and I find this one is a perfect fit for me. Others have been… Full review

Blue Kazoo

rated 2 of 5 stars High expectations, poor performance. Bought this North Face bag at a local REI. I used it for several years in a variety of settings, from indoor use to summer hiking, fall, even some winter hikes. My biggest complaint is its temp rating. My bag says it is a 15-degree rating. YES, I always stored it loose, never compressed. The bag was well taken care of. After several nights over several different outings I was sure to bring extra clothes to sleep in if I knew temps would drop below freezing. This… Full review

Dome 8

rated 5 of 5 stars This tent is incredible! I think I got the last one in the U.S. Used it once in the mountains in N.M. Initial setup was a bear, as once shell is set up then you have to attach hundreds of little connectors for what I call the inner tent! Whew!! was so tired after that I did not connect the vestibule. It took about an hour and a half and you better have at least two people! Truthfully it is waaaay more than you need in U.S. to camp, except for maybe North Idaho or Western Montana where I intend to… Full review

Jr Hedgehog Hiker Mid Waterproof

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Just right for outfitting the 7-year-old grandson for his first trek. I shopped and bought these, because I felt they were the best value in a real hiker for my grandson and I'm very pleased. Excellent design, materials, and construction in a waterproof hiking boot. I bought them in size 3 (which is his size now) and they may very well fit him through next season, too. There seems plenty of room in the toe box.  Full review
