This is by far the best sleeping bag I have ever owned. I sleep on my stomach, so it seems like this was made just for me. I like being able to stick your feet out the bottom if you get to warm. Cools me off quick.

Be sure you have a pad because there is no insulation at the bottom of the sleeping bag for your back. They did this to save on weight. Not a good sleepng bag for a hammock. I used it on a chilly night, in my hammock, in the mountains and had to add layers. Everything was warm except for my back. Also, it might be harder for a larger person to move around in the sleeping bag. I'm 5'8" 170 lbs.

The weight is great and it packs down fairly small. I don't use a compression sack. I stuff my sleeping bag in my pack to take up the space between items. It helps keep things from moving around. This is a great sleeping bag and I would recommend it.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great bowl. It holds my food. haha. I am able to hold a hot bowl of noodles in my hand while hot. I have had some hard plastic plates/bowls/cups in the past and the heat made it hard to hold. These are perfect and allows you to keep warm hands. Not as easy to clean as hard plastic. There are lighter options out there but not by much. The durability makes up for the weight. Great product. I would recommend.

This is an great cup. You can actually hold it with hot coffee/tea. I like that it is not hard plastic. It might be harder to clean than plastic but not hard enough to not use again. I was afraid of being able to taste the silicone, but that worry was laid to rest the first time I drank my morning java. I would recommend this cup to anyone.

Perfect weekend pack

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is the perfect pack for me on a 3 day 2 night trip when I'm going hammock style. I like the sleeping bag compartment. My Sierra designs backcountry bag stuffs in nicely. the only thing that I strapped to the outside of my pack was my chair (luxary item). I was able to pack my hammock, tarp, pillow, hammock hanging kit, sleeping bag, 3 days worth of food, the usual personal items and a pullover. The pack felt great on my back and the shoulder harness did not dig in to my shoulders. I recommend this pack to anyone that knows how to pack light.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This tent held up in a hail and rain storm. It kept me dry and all my gear. The vestibule will fit a medium sized pack but it wi still get wet around the edge at the bottom. I use the 2man tent even tho it's only me. I like to keep my gear inside with me. It would def be snug for 2 people. I like that it's light weight. I have not had a problem with condensation on the tent but the fly has had condensation. I also have the footprint which I recommend you get. The material seems thin but is tough. I like having the extra protection and if I'm gonna spend that much money on a tent, then I want it to last. Hands down it's the best tent I have owned.

This is a great luxury item I use on some of my backpacking trips. I can get tired of some of those meals. It cooks quick so be careful and watch your flame. I cook pancakes for breakfast. Lightweight and only have to add water. Instead of syrup, I like to use my peanut butter. Be sure you do bring a little cooking oil or you will have caked on mess.

These work great. They kept the bugs off me and they actually smell good too. After a few days in the backcountry, a nice scent is always refreshing. I was able to use 1 wipe for my arms and neck and 1 on my legs. They are lighter than carrying a bottle of liquid if you worry about weight and they are much smaller to pack. I give them 2 thumbs up.

Good Bowl

I purchased the large one and I prob would of been satisfied with the medium one. The large is very big. If you have a very large dog this would be perfect. I have a 80 lbs yellow lab and the medium would of been fine.

This pack is great. I love that it fits snug and doesn' shift. It holds my dogs backpacking sleeping pad, his food, cold weather gear, boots and a few other things when we are out backpacking the backcountry. I love that it has the leash hook up. I also like that you can lift your dog by the handle if he has trouble getting over anything. It also helps me when I come across horses on the trails. My dog gets protective of me around them so it helps me get a good hold on him just in case.
