Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This sleep pad is very comfortable in my opinion. The first one I bought seemed to have some problem with a slow leak (wake up with my butt almost touching ground), but I sent it back to Big Agnes and they sent me a new one that has no problems at all. The pad is slippery, so i suggest using a bag with a sleeve. The pad is also very warm, however, I wish they included something to blow it up with other than your mouth (because of the moisture you breathe) like thermarest or exped do with some of their warmer pads.

This bag is very good, almost perfect (minus a couple things). The no zipper, no velco design makes things very comfortable. I wished there was a little more room in the knee area (not much room to spread legs). In cold weather the quilt does stay in place, although I don't think it's quite as warm as if there was a zipper there. I have taken it down to the 20s and been a little cold. Overall very happy with this purchase.

This pad is pretty great. It's thick when it's blown up and provides good support in the wilderness. It packs down super small too. The sack that comes with it is almost too big (a lot of extra space left over). Takes a bit to blow it up, but really not that bad. Obviously not a cold weather pad either, but as long as you have a warm bag this thing keeps the cold off you.

I've taken this tent out a few times now and it has some problems. Inner zippers are catching...a lot! Bottom of tent definitely doesn't seem too waterproof. Set it up on some damp grass and you could feel water through the bottom. The stakes and holds on the tent are not great. And only having six stakes doesn't keep the tent very taught in between (have to hold the tent to zip up most of the time). That being said, there is good head room in the tent, it is very easy to set up, it packs down quite small, and it is pretty light for a 3 person tent.


Update: Tent's zippers were not working well after going to Moab. Looks like the sand can easily get in the zippers and make them stick. Persistent rain will soak through the tent's fabric. Also very easy to get holes from embers. Had my tent about 30 yards from a fire and still got a couple small holes (don't remember it being that windy either). Still works well other than the rain thing.

Update 2: Poles snapped and bent in Moab after some heavy winds. Waiting on possible warranty from North Face.

This tent is easy and quick to set up. The single wall design is a new thing for me, but it seems to work pretty well. There was condensation on the vestibule flaps, but not on the inside of the tent. Bought this tent for backpacking with one more person, wanted some extra room with the light weight. Can almost kneel straight up in the middle of the tent to change clothes and whatever else. One of the only problems I have with this tent is the flaps for the vestibule, they don't get too tight and close to the ground. On a windy day in Moab there was quite a bit of sand getting into the tent. I know this is a problem with any tent in Moab on a windy day, but other tents I have had stay tighter to the ground, blocking out a little more dust and sand.

This thing seems to be good quality, used it a bunch of times with no problems. Just need a couple sections of some climbing rope and tie this thing up to the trees in no time! Packs away pretty easily, but I notice the strap doesn't like to get too tight when it is packed up (comes open sometimes). Could fit two people in this thing, but I would probably only use it for one.

This tent is bomb proof. Held up to rain and snow and plenty of wind with no problem. Takes a little bit of time to set up with so many stakes to put in the ground (10 total). Not the lightest tent in the world, but I have taken it backpacking a few times and it has worked for myself and a friend. Just head to toe it and it works just fine. Not a ton of room, but there wasn't any spooning going on!
