I'm not sure if the fact that Sanita's used to make these and now they don't makes the difference, or if they just aren't for everyone, but I could not see getting comfort out of them. Maybe I will get some from the Danish makers next time. I have a pair of Alegrias for work (hospital nursing), and they win over these hands down.

Hardly takes up any room compared with the ridgerest or regular Thermarest, but your back will still thank you in the morning. A little slow to fill up in cooler weather, but just open up the port as soon as you get to your destination and it will be full when you get ready for bed. May not feel like all that much when you first get it, but insulates perfectly and distributes your weight evenly so you wake up without aches.

This bag is very comfortable, but if you do hit about 25 degrees, it won't be enough. Great for late spring or cool weather. I recommend getting a 15 or 0 degree if you may hit freezing temps. You can always vent it if you do get a little warm. Synthetic is great if you don't use a tent footprint to keep out ground moisture.

I have two pairs of these, and both have served me well. I use them for camping, hiking, climbing, and water sports. Water beads right off, and they dry quickly if they do get wet. Very abrasion resistant and breathable. For cooler weather I wear a layer underneath. If you don't like zip-offs, you can pull these up and use the cinch cord to make them 3/4 or shorter.

I can't say anything bad about it, it works great as a light or mid-weight jacket for almost any purpose (or any purpose if you wear it under a rain shell). It looks great and is very comfortable. Higher pockets for use with a waist belt and underarm zips to cool off without taking it or your other gear off. I have hiked, canoed, been rock climbing, and skied in this great jacket. Highly recommended!

These gloves are great for any day when you just need to cut the wind but you still want to use your hands. I have used them for biking, hiking, and canoeing, and they make a world of difference in hand comfort. Keeping my hands warm always keeps my core temperature bearable, and these gloves to a great job. As someone who never wore gloves because of bulk, these have made my outdoor experiences much more enjoyable.
