Tubbs Mountaineer Snowshoes
4 5

This is my first pair of snowshoes and needed a pair for a planned trip to Mt Rainier. My main objective was a durable pair, I weigh 225 and adding my boots, cloths, backpack and heavy camera gear probably pushing 300 lbs. These snowshoes worked great and showed no problems supporting the weight on uneven surfaces or step slopes. Looking at different brands and levels of snowshoes, the other issue was the binding performance. The temp dropped to zero overnight and the bindings work very well with easy on and off and showed no problems of freezing up and sticking. The snowshoes were easy to use, the heal lifts worked great and made it easier going up hill. I am very happy with these and was worth the extra money for the durability and bindings.

Marmot Lithium Membrane Sleeping Bag
4 5

After researching several bags I decided on the Marmot Lithium Membrane 0 degree bag as my second bag to use during the winter months. I have another brand bag rated for 15 degrees but find I need to add additional fleece layers for 35 degree temps so decided on this 0 degree Marmot bag . I wanted the water proof membrane version due to occasional condensation a tent can get while camping in colder temps. I have used this bag twice since buying it this month and have ben very happy with it. The first trip was snowshoeing at Mt Rainier, temps dropped to zero that night with 35mph winds. I wore a very light fleece pant and a medium fleece top and stayed warm all night and the membrane did great to shed the condensation I had in my tent by my feet. The bag is comfortable, light weight and was able to get it compressed down fairly small with a compression stuff sack. I am 5' 10" and had plenty of length. Very happy with bag, see picture of Tatoosh Range from my base camp at Mt Rainier Dec '11. Todd Mortensen
