I've used this pad a few times now and have no complaints. I've slept on it on 50 degree nights and 20 degree nights and it keeps you up off the cold ground keeping you nice and warm. Even if your only camping 3 seasons the little extra weight might be worth if you want a solid night sleep on a super thick and comfy mattress.

I absolutely love these gloves! I've been using them for 3 years now and they are still holding up really well. They're warm until it starts getting in the single digits and below, but I have poor circulation, and are a solid and very durably glove that won't let you down. When these things end up being too beat I will most likely get and identical pair. Great gloves!

These are great bindings! I've been riding G3's the past 3 years and made the switch because I wanted more power and these definitely deliver! I can put in an edge much more efficiently and have been riding mostly on setting 4. If your familier with th G3's this is stiffer than the world cup cartiridges for comparison. In all a really great binding that delivers power and durability!

I love these goggles!I got the polarized lenses because I was looking for a goggle that could block a little more sun and also reduce glare. I use them on occasion in low light situations but they are much better on blue bird days or with a few clouds in the sky. If your looking for goggles that fit the Smith Variant or G10 helmets these are great. They are a perfect compliment to a goggle that allows a little light in for those cloudy days

I love these gloves! They are super warm and durable. I wear these whenever the temps drop into the teens and below and they always keep my hands warm. In other gloves I have tried swaping liners and every other trick but always come back to these. Good for skiing and winter camping and when it get into the negatives im still warm. Great Product!

This is a very solid binding. I have broke 1 cable and the plastic off of the heel piece ( which doesn't do much) in about 200 days skiing. The cartridges don't provide a ton of stiffness but if your looking for a light weight, bomber binding with more of a neutral feel then you have found the perfect match.

I love this helmet! It's warm, comfortable, and the ventilation rocks. Don't let people tell you the brim doesn't do anything. The top of your goggles will stay dry and no snow will be able to get into them thanks to the brim. The adjustability is another plus as well. I havent tried them all but I can't see another helmet on the market being as good as this one. You won't regret buying the Variant one bit.

These are great cartridges. They deliver much more power than the x mountain cartridge. They are not as stiff as some of the BD cartridges but I love them and they do exactly what I ask of the. Nice and springy and I don't get much tip dive on powder days either. These are defiantly the cartridges you need if you want more power.

When I bought this pack 3 years ago I was psyched. I spent a little extra money because this pack had everything i wanted in it. It was big enough, and although a little heavy, its worth every extra ounce due to how comfortable it is. I got the hip belt heat molded which is an awesome touch and fits perfect, defiantly take the time and do it. This pack has been through rain and snow and is perfect. It doesn't look old at all and I've put well over 700 miles on it. For all of you winter campers/skiers you can rig a pair of skis on the sides too! This pack is great and worth every penny!

I hike a 600 mile section of the AT and used this filter. I never had any real problems with it and I new that if i needed water I could count on this filter. It's a really light and compact filter. One of the nice things i like about it is that it isn't ceramic so barring some sort of fall the innards wouldn't break. This filter pumps out water really fast and is perfect for an overnight or doing the whole AT.

Therm-a-rest got it right with this pad. It's light, packable, and comfortable. I haven't come across another pad that comes close to this one in any way. I've used mine on probably over 100 nights and it hasn't gotten a hole in it or anything else. The only bad thing about it is that the stuff sack doesn't come with it but besides that its perfect. Defiantly the best pad on the market.

This is a great head lamp. if your trying to cut down the weight but still get a head lamp that you can count on and that is really bright then get this one. I've gone on numerous night hikes and its perfect. I love this head lamp and have made all of my friends get one too. Its super light and bright and you can't beat the price.

These boots are great! I love the walk mode and although they are kind of on the heavy side you will appreciate the performance on the way down. This boot is perfect for inbounds as well as backcountry. I've used them from VT to AK and they always get the job done. You wont regret getting these boots.
