Flying Diamond 6
5 5

My first impression are that this tent is easy to set up. Has of plenty of room. I like how the rain fly clips to the tent and can be pulled tight. Also, the vestibule can be tied up and doesn't need to be staked out. I find this to be convenient when the weather is nice. Everything seems to be quality made. I had an REI Base camp 6 and it didn't do as well in the wind as I was hoping for. This temp seems like it should hold up. I can't wait to test it out in some more severe weather

Great Pack
5 5

I bought this pack and so far I've been impressed. All the zippers are taped and everything is made well. I took it out on a 8.5 mile hike up Wildrose Peak in Death Valley. The pack road well and it was easy to adjust for comfort. Also, the pivoting hip belt and load adjusting cables move with you and feel natural. The side pockets are stretchy which allows you to put stuff in them even when the pack is full. Also, I liked how the pockets on the hip belt are easily accessible. I've had other packs where the pockets could not be reached very well. Finally just for some extra info the hip belt doesn't come attached. It is easy to attach but you may not realize the tool is in a pocket. I didn't realize that and I went and got an alan wrench from my garage when there was one with me the whole time.

First off I'm impressed with the quality. Everything seems to be durable and well made. I wear the soft shell all the time. It is perfect for around town. It is warm, not bulky, looks good, and had plenty of places to stash things. I haven't worn the outer layer as much but when I have it works great as a windbreaker and keeps you dry. The hood cinches down to keep you warm but can be positioned so its not all bunched up in the face. Very comfortable. The soft shell zips into the outer jacket and has taps that keep the sleeves from slipping. The combo is great for winter fun. I mostly hike and camp and this has been a perfect winter jacket for those activities. I would recommend it to anyone.

I use this light for everything. For night hiking around Virginia City to working on a bathroom exhaust fan in my attic space. It has two functions a narrow beam and a wider beam. Both functions have to levels of brightness. To change functions you hold the button down until you see the change. To change light level just hit the button again soon after turning it on or or changing the function. To turn of just hit the button. There must be a time delay because after its set to the desired position you don't have to cycle through to turn it off. It just goes off with the next press. The position is adjustable. Its light and comfortable. I have used it for several hours on multiple hikes and activities and have had no problems and haven't had to change batteries. Great light without spending allot.
