I have always been an air pad skeptic. Since the air pad came on the scene, I have yet to sleep on one that gave me a great night's sleep. They were always loud when you moved, not insulated enough, or tried to buck you off when you got near the edge of the pad. None of those things happened with the the Klymit Static V Luxe! I took it out for a night dipping down into the mid teens and slept like a baby. The V shaped baffles seemed to hug me no matter which way I rolled. Not once did I feel the ground or the cold that I know was trying to infiltrate my dreams. The dual valves were easy to inflate and deflate. And the rolled up size was barely noticeable in my pack. This is a real game changer for me in the air pad world and one I will take with me much more often.

While not the lightest fork out there, the MSR Alpine Tool Fork can power through some dinner. When you absolutely, positively have to get that backcountry steak down in 3 bites, accept no substitute! Also, if your MSR
Dragonfly (or other liquid fuel stove) does need a bit of filed love, the built in tools in the handle make the job a pleasure.

This is the perfect piece for throwing in your pack when you slow down a bit and need to take the edge off or for rocking around town when a big down coat is too much. It compacts really well, which means there is no excuse for leaving it home. To me it seems to run just a bit small so if you're in between sizes, I'd say err on the larger end.

My little guy loves his Columbia Mountain Side Fleece jacket. The overlays on the chest keep out enough wind and the hood keeps him playing outside when things get a bit chilly. Not fighting any velcro on the cuffs is also a nice feature. It's amazing to see what treasures he comes back with zipped into the hand pockets.

Bought these Sperry boots for my wife. She absolutely loves them. They go on and off easily with the side zipper and she never worries about any water coming in. The wool upper on these dresses them up over the nylon version enough that she is comfortable weaning them to work on wet days. Couldn;t be happier with them.

We gave these Sperry Top Sider boots as a gift for grandma to run around in this winter. She loves the easy on and off of the side zipper and not worrying about walking around the puddles. They are warm enough with a good sock for her to wear when it is cold out and she really likes the burgundy color. Overall, the perfect fit for rain, slush, and snow.

The Backcountry Sherpa Fleece Jacket is well designed, ultra warm, and doesn't blend in with other bland fleece jackets. The detailing at the shoulders and waist make it pack friendly and the high pile fleece is really nice when the temps dip. The fit does run a bit small in the body, so if you're between sizes, go one up. Other than that a great piece to add to the jacket collection.

What more can you ask for? I have been more than impressed with all aspects of the Under Armour Fish Hunter shirt. the fit is is trim where ti needs to be, but does not bind anywhere while casting. I love that it doesn't scream fishing shirt if I wear it out to dinner with the family. The venting allows for great airflow on hot days and when it does get wet the fabric wicks really well and dries super quickly. I want one of these in each color.

I bought two of the Mad Rock Ultralight Wire Gate Carabiner to upgrade the carabiners on my hammock from the heavy steel ones it came with. I'm sure the two of them feel like they aren't living up to their full potential of summiting craggy peaks or saving lives when you miss that tiny hold, but they shaved a bunch of weight off my hammock and are doing a great job for what I ask of them; keeping me relaxing comfortably.

I bought these to replace my backpacking tent stakes, but needed to use them to replace some of the stakes on my 6 person campground hotel. I was worried that they wouldn't be able to handle the bigger tent in the relatively softer ground, but even when the wind kicked up, they didn't even flinch. The extra holding surface of the design gives great grip in all ground types and I have now traded all my old stakes for these.

I can't say enough about the benefits of the Big Agnes Tensleep Station. The tent sets up easily and is solid and dry in all weather conditions, gives you plenty of room for all your people and gear, and gives plenty of versatility for changing weather conditions. The number of interior pockets combined with the gear loft lets me organize and dry gear out of the way. the awning option for the front vestibule makes a great place to sit when the rain decides to join the party. One of my favorite features is the ability to roll up the fly to vent when the weather worms up without having to remove it completely. Big Agnes just got this one right.

I really like my Kelty Adjustable Poles for what they are designed to do. They are burly and hold up to any wind without even blinking. Have great adjustment for large tarps like the 12' Noah Tarp. I do wish that they started a bit shorter as trying to get low enough for a tarp to sleep under is a bit of a trick, but that's not really what they were made for. They do now come in a mesh carry bag which two poles will fit in which is a nice addition for the original packaging.

I love my Backcountry.com Trail Weight Rain Jacket. It is light weight and easily handled everything a spring trip in the Tetons could dish out. The breathability combined with the underarm vents prevent any dampness from building up inside and the cut is long enough to keep you covered while bending or sitting in the canoe. It does tend to run a bit small as I normally wear a small but needed to go medium to get the correct fit. That said, the medium fits everywhere; the sleeves aren't too long and I'm not drowning in it when not worn with any layer underneath. Overall, a great jacket for bringing along on any outing.

After years of using a regular dry bag, the change to the 40L roll-top duffel has been welcome. It is much easier to find what I'm looking for quickly and the wide opening makes getting bulky items in and out a breeze. The little side pocket is nice for things like sunscreen and lip stuff. For may daily boat gear, I don't think there is a better option out there.

I've loved Kaenon glasses for a number of years and have had 2 different pair of Bolsas. Where Kaenon no longer makes this frame, the options for smaller faces in a men's frame are pretty limited. Enter the Burnet. These fit my face really well. The temples are not too long to work with hats. and as always, the lenses provide a crystal clear view. The Gold mirror B12 lens provide great all-around usage; especially suited to outdoor activities. If you have a hard time finding smaller glasses, I'd definitely recommend trying these out.

We bought this for my 5 year old who can;t seem to keep a hat on his head. The fit of this is so good that we no longer have to fight to keep it on him. He likes the tassels and we have yet to be able to pull the ball off the top. Overall, a great hat.

I have bought two pair of Keen Bern Baby Bern boots for my wife and unfortunately have had to return both because the calf is too tight. The boot is really well constructed, has the look she is after, and falls in at a great price; they just don't work for her legs even in the wide. I feel that these would work perfectly for someone who has relatively narrow calves, but if you're in that 15" calf size or up these are going to be too tight.

The Ray Ban Aviator glasses may not get you to into the cockpit of an F-14, but at least you will look the part. The large frame does a great job of blocking out the light for almost every angle. The 13% light transmission level is great for the brightest days. The wire frames are just that, so a bit of care is required. Overall, though a classic look.

While the Petzl Tikkina headlamp isn't going to wow anybody, it does get the job done without a lot of fuss. You turn it on, pick high, medium, or low and forget about it. The battery life is great at high power and the band comfortably adjusts to almost any head size. I have not used this with the Petzl Core rechargeable battery, but having the option makes one more good benefit.
