Teri's Bio

Born and a little bit raised in Texas, also raised in Nevada. Traveled a bit, moved to Utah to peruse speedskating, met and married a speedskater. He introduced me to backpacking and skiing - 2 things I never had any desire to do, ever. I bought a hammock and my life is the most complete it's ever been. Starting to not fear bears.

This chair is awesome. Sit anywhere comfortably. Got this as a gift for my husband, he loves it. I love it. Tighten the straps to sit up straight or loosen them to recline. The fabric seems to be holding up well in the 4 months we have owned this.

Bought the double over the single because I liked the idea of extra fabric, thought it would be scary to move around in these things. It is not scary at all! I have slept on my back, side, stomach, flat and curled up. This things are the ultimate and it should be a law that everyone has one. Got the powder/royal blue one. Love the colors. Comes with 2 carabiners, no straps. I'd highly recommend the Atlas straps. Yes there is enough room for 2 people, it's just not comfortable at all.

I chose to purchase the Atlas Straps instead of the Slap Straps because of a few not so great reviews on the Slap Straps and really good reviews about Atlas. I have not been disappointed once with these. Had these for about a year now. Went hammocking every weekend during the summer/fall and never had any issues with tree spacing or attaching the hammock. Highly recommend!

A few years ago I got 2 of the "Eagle Creek Comfort Travel Pillow" which, this "Sandman" looks exactly like. Inflating it is super easy! Just a heads up with the inflate pillow idea though... I love the idea, it's so so handy to travel with, folds up and stores easily and it's super comfortable. The down side is that it got a hole in the seam, so I would wake up from my sleep with my pillow deflated. Eagle Creek does replace it for free if this happens, I'd know cause it has happened 4 times. They just keep sending me a new one. Every couple times they get used, a hole appears. Will I keep using them and sending them back... YES! It's worth it to me.

Oh, and this type of pillow (U shape) is so much more comfortable if worn around the front of your neck and not the back of your neck. Yes, you may look weird, but it's so much more comfortable and it holds your head/neck/chin up instead of having your head hang down. Try it!

It?s a dream. Ok, so I?ve only owned it for 3 days, but from what I can tell, it?s a good one. I have tried out the mummy shape bags and they are just not for me. I gotta move and be able to express myself in different positions when I sleep and the mummy held me back. The shape of this bag was the first thing that attracted me to it.

The second thing that I needed was warmth. I freeze easily. With a 0 degree rating, I am hoping to be warm when it?s in the 40s at night. I am also planning on having an inner blanket/liner as well.

The fact that it?s down means it?s light weight. I haven?t actually weighed it myself, but it?s said to be in the 3 pound range. It can also squish pretty small, which is what I need for backpacking. It comes with a mesh storage sack and a smaller bag? known as a stuff sack, though I will not be using it because I have a better stuff sack with straps to cinch it down.

The unusual thing about this bag is that there is no insulation on the bottom. It?s a sleep system bag and is meant to have an insulated sleeping pad slipped into the under pocket. The idea is that insulation is worthless when it?s compresses, which is what you do when you lay on something. So, there is just one layer of fabric that separates you from your sleeping pad. If you don?t have a sleeping pad with this bag, you will not be very comfortable.

The sleeve for the sleeping pad is the full length of the bag. I have seen some other Big Agnes bags where the sleeve is only half the length.

This bag has a sewn in pocket for a pillow. It also has a neck collar. Both of which are very nice.

As mentioned before, the shape of this bag is what drew me to it, right off. I can easily roll over and over. I can have one or both knees up while on my side or back.

I am 5'4 and got the regular size cause I like the extra room. I look forward to sleeping in this bag both in a tent and a hammock. I'll post another review once I use it.

The idea of this bike is genius! My niece and nephew had their Strider bikes since before they could walk. They figured out how to ride and 2 months ago, at 3 years old they learned to ride a 2 wheel bike with pedals in about 10 minutes. Their Strider bikes held up just fine and did the job they were meant to do.

You may want to invest in some shoes with a good toe as these 2 kids would drag their toes to stop. And don't forget the helmet!

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Originally bought this for my emergency kit. When I went on my first backpacking trip I took it along "just in case." The first night I was freezing cold, so I busted this little bivy open and put it inside my sleeping bag and was able to finally warm up. I woke up pretty sweaty. Didn't mind because at least I got some sleep. The second night, I put my sleeping bag in it. It was still warm. I woke up with lots of condensation between the bivy and the outside of my sleeping bag, I was dry. My guess is that was was in the low high 30s low 40s at night. It saved me, although I am now in the market for a new sleeping bag.
