The ENO SlapStrap makes setting up my hammock a breeze and extends the working length of my hammock by a significant amount. It does this while being much more gentle on the trees than a rope system alone. Adjustments are quick and easy and it removes just as easily when relaxing time is over.

The Hydroflask 16 oz. Pint is amazing. It keeps ice forever! The shape of the cup is really easy to hold on to and having a full 16 oz. capacity makes enjoying your favorite beverage that much easier without having to get up to refill as often. With no lid, I wouldn't use it as a travel cup but once you get where you are wanting to hang out, this will be your go to drink dispenser. My wife liked mine so much we had to buy a second one (color coded so she doesn't steal mine of course). Pick one of these up, pour something in it, and never worry about the temperature. it's just that good.

The Roll Top Cooler Cube from Mountainsmith has been a lifesaver for us. We were looking for something to keep a few things cold that didn't take up the entire back of the car. This cooler does a great job at insulating and with the roll top makes access to those things easy and fast. I have used this in the backcountry on canoe trips to hang our cooler food and have yet to have any moisture enter the bag through the roll top. The exterior fabric is tough and cleans up easily and the liner material has held up really well. The ability to fold it up and stuff somewhere once empty has also made this a product that I am extremely happy with. Overall, a great purchase.

We love our Deluxe Cooler Cube and have used it both with and without the Modular Hauler system. The exterior fabric has held up well and cleans up easily. The inside material wipes down quickly and never has held any residual smells. Having a built in bottle opener along with the added cup holders has been nice for keeping the kids (or my) drinks from spilling. Wile I don't think it is quite as efficient as a hard sided cooler, it is much easier to haul around. It works amazingly well for backcountry canoe trips where a full size cooler just isn't an option, but you need something. The zipper will allow water to leak if it gets tipped over, but other than that this is a great product.

I was looking for a travel cup that was really efficient and could handle some abuse. I definitely found it in the YETI Rambler mug. This thing feels like a tank! The lid is so secure that you never worry about spills and it keeps things hot/cold for hours. It is also very nice to have a 30 ounce capacity and still be able to fit it in a standard cup holder. Like everything YETI builds, this thing will last forever. I'm guessing my children's children will be using this one as I cannot fathom anything I could do to this to hurt it.

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 140 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I'm fairly certain that if I could only own one pair of pants, the Stretch Zions from prAna would be my choice. I have worn these through slot canyons, to work, hunting for elk, and even to a wedding once I think and they look just as good now as the day I bought them. They shed water really well and stretch for miles. The new buckle design on these is much more secure that the previous metal one and the addition of belt loops has made these much more versatile than they already were. It does seem as if prAna made a slight sizing tweak recently. My original pair of these seem to be about 3/4" smaller than the pair I just purchased. It isn't enough to force me to change sizes, but it is something to be aware of if you are retiring an old pair or are right in between sizes.

I love my Grand Trunk Double Parachute Hammock. It is really well built, packs small, and is comfortable for two adults to fit in together. The only draw back are the carabiners that come with it. They are steel with a very pointed end on the gate. The first time I had this out, there were snagging the connection ropes. Trading these out with a couple better biners fixed this problem and we have had a great experience with this ever since. it is nice that the adjustable ropes come with this, but I did buy add-on straps to makes things a little easier both on me and the trees. Overall, a great addition to our campsites and one we rarely leave home without.

Shade anywhere

Familiarity: I've used it several times

We have now used our Three Forks Shelter about 8 or 9 times and each time I set it up I am impressed. Whether it at the parade, splash pad, campground, or just in the backyard, we have loved using this. The high profile feels very open, but does catch the wind a bit. Nothing that staking the corners and using the guylines can't handle though. Set-up is doable with one person, but because of the length of the poles, having two makes it a breeze. Also, having the adjustable/removable side wall makes adapting the shade easy as the sun/wind/rain changes position. We purchased an extra side wall to give us a bit more protection if we need it. Overall, this has been a great purchase for us and we rarely leave home without it in the car.

Best sleep nights, ever!

My toddler loves his Little Red bag and the Big Agnes system of sliding the pad into the sleeve so you don't roll off is never more appreciated than when you have a wiggly 2 year old in a tent. This keeps him on his pad all night and he really does sleep better in his bag than he does at home. It makes for a great excuse to go camping! The temperature rating is legit on this bag.He has slept in this bag comfortably down into the mid 30s with only a pair of baselayers on inside it without being cold at all.

Helinox has done a great job with the Chair Elite. It is comfortable to sit in, relatively solid, and most importantly packs up super small. I have been using this as my go to seat now for not only camping, but also on hunting scouting trips. It is much more comfortable than sitting on the ground when glassing for long periods, yet fits easily in my pack. Getting it back in the bag takes just a bit of work, but overall it isn't any harder than putting any folding chair back into its bag. It is a low seat height, so if you are on the taller side, you may feel like your knees are around your ears. Overall, I've been really happy with the way this performs for what I need it to do.

I picked up the Ex Officio Air Strip Lite Shirt for a canoe trip and it worked perfectly for keeping the sun and wind off all week. It breathes well, handles all sun, and has a number of features that seem small but add to the shirts functionality. I especially like the double collar for protecting your neck. The shirt is REALLY cut generously. This is great in the morning when you want to throw a base layer on under it and does help with keeping you cool, but if you are in between sizes, I'd say go smaller.

I absolutely love the OR Helios Hat. It fits perfectly, sheds water well enough to use in the rain, and keeps me from having to lather my dome in sunscreen. I was right in between sizes and decided to go a size up. So glad I did. There is a drawstring closure which allows you to fit the hat perfectly and between this and the chinstrap, this thing will stay on in any kind of weather.

The Eagle Nest Outfitters ProFly is the perfect size for throwing in your pack "just in case". After riding out a nasty storm last year in the Uintas, I knew I wanted something that I could put up quickly, was light enough to vanish when not in use, and built to handle anything that came my way. The ProFly has accomplished all of these and more.

The Patagonia Nano Puff Pullover is my new favorite piece of gear period. It is warm enough for chilly mornings at elevation, yet doesn't roast your organs in the evening by the fire. The shortened zipper on the pullover means it layers nicely under other zippered pieces, yet is long enough to act as a vent if things heat up. Less zipper also means less weight and bulk for throwing in your pack. I am fairly sure that when packed into its own pocket, this thing is smaller than my cell phone and weighs considerably less. It runs true to size and the sleeves are not built for a gorilla; which those of us with normal to short arms appreciate. I had debated on a light insulated piece for quite a while, but glad I waited for this one. It is everything I was hoping to get.

While the Ride Contrabands take a little more work to set up compared to most other bindings, they are definitely worth the effort. The Contrabands hold more solidly than anything else out there, have amazing response, and I'm not sure that any single human can hurt these. Drop the cash on the Ride Contrabands, watch the video on how to fit them, and shred anything that gets in your way.

The Dynastar Big Troubles definitely handle any trouble that comes their way. From charging groomers to floating in the powder, these made short work of anything I could put them through. They do feel a bit heavier than some skis of similar size, but their stability and the ability to power through anything definitely make up for it. If you are looking for an oversize ski for the deep days out west, the Big Troubles would definitely fit the bill.
