Reverie Mummy 30

rated 4 of 5 stars This bag is used only by my dogs. I bought it for them. They have never shared it. So this review is a bit skewed since I bought this bag strictly for my dogs.  My Dalmatian, Ferrari, was getting very cold at night while camping in October and November for 4-day trips in 2015 (it got down to the high 20's or low 30's at night but was supposed to be in the 40's) and I was snug in my sleeping bag and I felt horrible.  I piled every fleece, every spare jacket, towel, anything to keep her warm the… Full review


rated 3 of 5 stars Lightweight, inexpensive, solo backpacking tent. Suitable for reasonably dry hiking areas. This inexpensive, lightweight, single-wall tent won't keep you perfectly dry in a rainstorm, but for the minimal size and weight it is still well worth carrying. I carried one of these on three section hikes on the PCT and it performed well even in the snow. It kept me out of the wind and the rain, although of course there isn't a whole lot of rainfall in that part of the country, so it would probably not… Full review

Great Basin

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Shape, how hard to set up, price for product, product safety, water leaks, breakage of zipper for door, and windows, screen in area. Tent has a neat looking setup and natural neutral colors, but the design is waist in more ways than it different. As to would I recommend this product, is maybe, depending on whom I was talking to and what product was and is to be used for, just camping with smaller children, yes for larger ones, no. What is product best for would be different style. This product can… Full review

Camp Pad

rated 5 of 5 stars An ultra-light (7oz) , minimalist sleeping pad that surprised me with both its quality and its price ($12). Anyone seeking to move into ultralight camping or simply lighten their pack load should seriously consider buying this inexpensive little gem of a sleeping pad. If after spending $12-$14 you don't like it, you won't feel buyer's remorse. First off, I would have never bought one of these on my own. Every pad I've ever used says "Therm A Rest" on it. When my son won one of these in Cub Scouts… Full review


rated 2 of 5 stars The Wenzel StarLight tent is best used for backyard camping or perfect weather, where bugs, not rain, are the only concern. I purchased this tent before I was knowledgeable of backpacking, and I quickly learned this is not a tent you want to depend on in inclement weather. Although Trailspace lists this as "discontinued," it is back in production and selling on Campmor, Amazon, and other sites. I spent a week trapped in the Wenzel StarLight during my first backpacking trip. I picked it based on… Full review
