Love this tent!!
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this tent for a steal off S&C, used it for multiple days of car camping. First time it was just me and the pup, plenty of room for gear and the dog bed. Second time I brought my roommate and the pup and still there was plenty of room. She has a large REI basecamp mattress while I use a Thermarest Prolite, and even side by side they allowed for about 3-4 inches on either side. We are both of average height 5'4" and there was about a foot of space at the bottom of the tent. The tent itself is about 75% mesh which makes for a nice bug tent when out in hot weather and you want to take a nap. However, at night we threw the rainfly on and it still stayed rather nice- not too stuffy and not too cold. Having two doors is awesome , so no one has to climb over the other to get out, especially in the middle of the night. Plenty of gear space if you need it in the vestibule. Comes with a gear locker to place in ceiling of tent for headlamps, meds, phones, and there are mesh pockets in each corner of the tent. The crossbar across the top really helps to make you feel like you're not in a tent but in a giant cave, one can easily sit up without hitting their head on the tent ceiling. Only downfall is the mesh seems a bit thin and there's already a hole from the dog, guess it's to be expected.

PROs: lightweight (5lbs for 2 people?), airy, roomy, mesh screens for hot summer camping, afternoon naps away from bugs, stargazing on your back in your tent, double door access, large vestibule space

CONs: mesh doesn't really seem too durable and it makes up most of the tent body.

Overall, VERY VERY pleased with the purchase.

I just bought this jacket and it kicked butt in some nasty weather. It is worth every penny of its price. I was up at Mammoth Lakes, CA and this jacket stood up to temps in the low 20s and winds that were howling at 40mph-plus. The wind couldn't touch me—I felt invisible to the weather. With a long-sleeve shirt underneath this, I was good to go on the long 4 mile trek to the top of Mammoth Mountain, at 11,000ft. The winds were blowing so hard that it was difficult to stand up and walk a straight line. But was I cold? Nope. Great jacket, a bit pricey but worth every single cent. I'm considering buying another one. BTW, I love the lifetime warranty!!

This helmet is bad ass! It's not only light, but it keeps your head and ears warm. In addition, the audio is sweet. Way better than headphones, these audio pads give you great sound. Now you have a chance to have your own soundtrack as you bomb down the mountain! I think it looks way cooler than the Protec Freeride (my previous helmet).
