It's becoming harder and harder to find a tent that includes a footprint and interior gear storage at a good price. I searched for quite a while and ultimately landed on this one.

I was looking for a roomy, 2 person backpacking tent around 5 pounds or so that would work for weekend trips. Everything about his one hit my requirements and I was a huge fan of the mesh interior.

First thing I noticed when I picked it up-Trail Weight: 4 lbs 13 ounces. Not the end of the world but important to note for any of you weight conscious folks.

On the set up, I liked everything until it got the rain fly. The plastic tabs with the keyhole loops on the just were NOT easy to attach to the tent body. Every time I got one on one side the other side would fall off. Another issue was the tent poles all being connected as one structure. Not a huge deal but was a little tricky on the tear down process in my opinion,

Not wanting to deal with this in a bad weather situation, I deliberated for a few days and ultimately decided to return it. I'll likely be going with the Marmot Tungsten 2P based on how the fly attaches on that one and the similar weight.

If you have any questions on this tent or need help picking out the tent for your needs reach out and I'm happy to help!

Like most people, I never treated flip flops as a serious investment and would just get some cheap ones every so often. These bad boys put the end to that real quick. All the cheap flops in my closet get passed over for these each day. Can't beat the support and comfort and when they wear out it'll be time for another pair!

This is a legit self inflating pad and was a huge upgrade from my Alps one that was my first sleeping pad. The mummy shape and raised edges kept me on top of it both nights. Very easy to inflate and deflate as well. My only complaint is the same as Andrew with the pack size. Not a problem for car camping but would be a little bigger than a preferred for backpacking.

Used the Small/17L for drinks on a camping trip last weekend and it got the job done nicely. It's by no means in the Yeti/Orion class (or price range) but if you're looking for the equivalent to a Coleman cooler from your local sporting good store but want the versatility of a soft sided one then look no further.

Go the chance to use this on a camping trip this weekend and it was a huge hit! Everybody kept asking to switch seats with us because it was so comfortable. The double cup holder on each arm rest and the carry bag that doubles as a floor mat is a nice touch as well.

Got this for my Mom for Summer rides and she likes the vest but we needed to exchange it for a size up. She is usually a Medium unless she'll be layering underneath and needed a Large in this.

Got these for my Mom as a gift, and she loves them. She rides a few days a week 20-30 miles and said they are perfect for that. Only complaint was that the grippers weren't quite as sticky as other Pearl Izumi's. She enjoyed the fit and longer length as well.

Okay, maybe a little dramatic. But for real this stove is legit. I love cooking over an open fire as much as the next guy but being able to make breakfast hassle free like you would in your kitchen at home is the way to go. Pancakes and coffee at the same time? You bet. Super easy to clean, the griddle comes off no problem and both burners heat up QUICK. No complaints so far and this will be coming with me on every camping trip in the future.

Like a few others have said, this is a killer value helmet. Tough to get MIPS technology at this price point and Giro delivers. Size wise, there is some adjust-ability with it so that helps a ton. I'm a 7 1/4 to 7 3/8 hat and the Medium was spot on for me. Large would be too roomy in my opinion.

Got these for my car camping cook set and they are basically your regular silverware that you have at home but more transportable. Definitely not for backpacking but when you're cooking up a 5 star meal at your glamp site these will do the job.

These things are absolutely the best way to stay organized on your camping or backpacking trip. I started with the XXS for my headlamp, pocket knife, lighter, etc. and XS for my JetBoil MiniMo and fuel canister. Grabbed the next two sizes up for my mess kit/cooking supplies and larger gear. Could not be happier and I definitely recommend making these a necessity for your pack.

Got this pad passed down to me when my older brother upgraded his sleeping set up and it's a good starter pad. Inflates and rolls up pretty easy but not super pack-able by any means. Something smaller and lighter weight is on my radar for longer backpacking trips but for an affordable and durable car camping pad this is a solid option.
