I really like this lighter a lot. I've taken it out a few times and it has been stellar. As some of the other reviews have said, it does not come with fuel. You'll have to order that separately. Also, this doesn't take your average lighter fluid, it needs quadruple-refined butane. All in all, it has been fantastic!

These headphones have great sound. Some of the clearest sounding headphones I've ever heard (I like them better than my Beats). These have a very class look that you won't get with other headphones (a lot less bulky than the Crushers). These are also extremely comfortable. I've been able to wear them for hours without even the smallest bit of discomfort. I think that the MSRP is a little high, but they are worth it if you can get them on sale here or over on SAC.

I have these bad-boys and they're awesome. I have these and the aviators. I have likes and dislikes. First, what I like:
Killer bass. These are the headphones for you if you like heavy hitting base and what to feel your skull rattle from the bass.
Great sounds. Obviously, these headphones are designed for bass, bass, and more bass. That being said, they do a good job keeping the other sounds crisp and clear as well. However, if you have the bass cranked all the way up, the higher tones do get a bit drowned out (but that's what I expected).
Comfort. The ear pieces are very comfortable and I've been able to wear them for hours on end.
Detachable cord. <-- really like that the cord detaches from the headphones.

Dislikes:
Bulky. These are a bit bulkier than I would like, but, given the hardware (read battery and amplifier), it is to be expected.

Great product! Skullcandy really delivered on these.

I love this helmet. I got the first gen, which is just a little different, but it's warm, stylish, and protects my noggin when I'm skiing. I also have the Skullcandy earbuds in my helmet and would recommend that as well. All in all, it's a great helmet!

I've had the Seal Pup Elite for a little while now. Overall, I like the knife. It's good for camping and can be used to split and cut with ease. The handle is durable and I don't anticipate it breaking at all. The only gripes I have are about the back. I wish they would have taken the jimping all the way to the handle. It's minor and doesn't affect functionality at all, but just a personal preference. I'm not sure how the knife would hold up to some serious abuse as I haven't had it long enough to really put it through the wringer, but my initial assessment is that it should be a great product.

This knife is great. Everybody should have a knife when they go into the backcountry. This knife is perfect because it's lightweight without compromising on durability. The SAT allows for easy one handed operation. The belt clip is great and allows the knife to ride low inside your pocket. I haven't found a real use for the groove handle. It's a bit too narrow for cutting paracord. It works fine with fishing line, but with anything else it's just better to open it up and allow it to work.

I really like this knife. I had the full size for awhile and decided that I wanted the smaller version for EDC. I love it. It's compact and the pocket clip allows it to ride really low in your pocket. The slit is a bit gimmicky as I've found no REAL use for it yet (other than cutting fishing line). Love SOG assisted opening. SOG has won me over with their great products and warranties.

The Somnus 15 is a great bag. The material is very soft, yet durable, and is very light. The down is an 850 fill, meaning you're getting a light bag without compromising warmth. The zipper on this is great and has never snagged on me. This bag runs a little long. I'm 6'1"and ordered the long. I probably would have been fine with the regular. That being said, I don't mind the longer bag. The only thing I wish this bag had was a stash pocket near the top. I've just gotten used to those with my other bags. Down is the way to go and if you can snag this bag on SAC or on sale here, do it! You won't regret it.

When I'm backpacking, a pillow is one luxury I won't give up. This is my pillow of choice. It's a great size and packs down to about 1/5th of its normal size. The best though, is after it seems to have lost some of its loft. Just throw it in the washer and dryer and then BAM! Good as new. It's so fluffy after a good ride in the dryer. I had to buy another one of these for my wife because she kept stealing mine. Get this pillow now!

This little lantern is a great addition to any backpackers gear collection. Unless you're really into ultra light, this lantern is a must. Headlamps are great, but this little guy really gives off a lot of light and is great to hang in your tent. It collapses to save space and gives a lot of light for its size. I absolutely recommend it.

This little towel is so soft and light. It's perfect for backpacking. I have the medium and it works great for drying your hands and drying off dishes after a long day of hiking. It packs down really small and isn't even noticeable. It fits inside my pots and pans. Won't camp without it.

Fit: True to size

This hat is great. It has a nice wide brim to keep the sun off your ears, face, and neck. I took this hat while I was hiking Kings Peak in Utah and it rained on us the whole day. This hat is water-resistant, but not waterproof. However, the brim did a great job of keeping the rain off my face and it allowed the water to roll down the back of my jacket as I was hiking. The mesh ventilation is nice as well. I haven't felt super hot in this hat yet (which was initially a big concern of mine). Love this thing!

Hands down my favorite freeze-dried dessert. This stuff is really, really, really good. I must say though, 1 package for 4 people is perfect. I tried eating splitting one with a buddy of mine and it's good for the first 5 bites, but it's pretty rich, so be ready for it. All in all, it's great and I get it whenever I'm heading to the backcountry!

This mug is perfect for camping/backpacking. It's great for backpacking because you can put stuff inside it when you're packing your pack for the week. I use it as a bowl as well as a mug. I must admit, I wasn't expecting the mug to be as big as it is. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of stuff it can hold. I love it so much that I got these for my friends as well so they'll stop stealing mine!

I have 3 of these sacks and I love them. This stuff sack is awesome because it doubles as a dry bag. Which is great when you have a down sleeping bag and really can't afford to have your stuff get wet. The material is pretty durable, however, I have one that had a few holes poked in the clear plastic when I was using it as a bear bag. A couple of stray twigs in the tree managed to find their way through the plastic. I taped it over with some packing tape, we'll see how that holds. I wouldn't hesitate buying these again.

It's a bowl. It's round, holds stuff well. The selling point for me was weight and price. For just a couple of bucks, this thing is great and it's dishwasher safe, so when you get back from your adventures, it's real easy to get it super clean and ready for the next round.
