I certainly didn't NEED any more t shirts in my closet, but I'm glad to have these! They look and feel great, and seem to be really well made. Sizing is pretty spot on. I'm normally between a medium and a large; I went with a large in these, and they do feel a little bit big, but I think a medium might be a little too small.

I love these soft bottles as they always pack into a backpack really well since they're nice and pliable, fitting into the nooks and crannies of your pack with ease. In my experience they don't hold up to long term use/abuse though; eventually they always start to leak. I keep buying them though!

I love this jacket, it's super warm and toasty; kept me plenty warm in desert camping trips with temps down to the mid teens. It looks great too, fairly form fitting and slim feeling, but not restrictive at all. The thumbhole gaiter things are really nicely down too. It's not very compressible, but I wouldn't take this backpacking or skiing/mountaineering anyway, more of just a camp jacket.

If you find yourself car-camping frequently, get this chair. Oh my lanta, it is COMFORTABLE. If you've got a significant other you'll love getting close and cozy in this thing while you make s'mores over the campfire; and if you're single chances are pretty good somebody is gonna want to sit down with you, and then it's prime time for showing off those s'more-cooking skills (slow-roasted golden brown > burnt to a crisp).

I like this blanket, I do. It's pretty warm, and pretty too. Packs down to about the size of a 48oz Nalgene bottle, so definitely manageable for a backpacking trip or for saving space on a car-camping trip.

HOWEVER, I have concerns about durability. It seems as though this blanket could tear very easily, and definitely keep it away from the campfire and sparking embers.

I'm not going to take a blanket backpacking, that's just kind of a silly waste of space and weight, and it too likely to get thrashed out in the backcountry (I'm admittedly a little hard on my gear). And for car-camping, I'd much much much rather have a far more attractive and comfortable wool blanket. I find most quality wool blankets to be equally as warm, exponentially more durable, and the weight/volume difference is pretty negligible if you're car-camping. And if taken care of properly, they'll last a lifetime!

I was lucky of enough to test this blanket for Backcountry, and while I think it's a novel concept and fairly cool and modern looking, I would much rather spend my money on a timeless quality wool blanket.

I picked up this shirt originally thinking it would be a funny Friday shirt, but as soon as I put it on I knew I had found something special. Unleash your inner jungle cat with this surprisingly well-made and fierce looking shirt. Fits a little small; I can usually get away with a Medium for most shirts, but with this one I found myself clawing my way out of the schmedium and into a large.

I've been meaning to get some reusable grocery bags for quite a while, and I'm soooo glad I finally did! I got two of these, and it's been so nice not having to deal with plastic bags all the time. I keep at least one in my car all the time, and it's also really convenient for carrying excess stuff from the car to the house for those times when I can't fit everything in my arms and refuse to make a second trip! Pick up a few, you won't regret it!

These screws are absolutely fine; they work well and the teeth bite and set into ice very easily. However, if you're planning to use these for technical ice climbing, definitely spend the extra money a screw with a proper crank like the Laser Speed screws. It's absolute worth the extra cost. As mentioned below, if you just need something for a glacial rescue kit they're fine, but otherwise you're much better off spending a little more on better screws.

I used these, BD Turbo's, and BD Turbo Express screws, and so far these are my favorite. They rack really nicely, and the handle is very ergonomic and easy to use. Compared to brand new Turbo screws, I find that the teeth on these bite into ice more easily, and I'm able to get the screw set into the ice very quickly. The hanger is spacious, and easily has room for 2-3 carabiners. I would choose these over the Laser Speed Lights as they're more durable, with the exception of maybe the 21 cm length, which has the most significant weight savings. If you're building a rack of ice screws, just get these and you'll be a happy climber!

his thing is great! It's super easy to use and can be very versatile. I use this with a Petzl Grigri and a foot loop to quickly and easy ascend a rope for taking pictures. Works well as a progress capture device in a hauling system as well. Best ascender on the market; if you need one, get this one!

Very comfortable and easy to inflate / deflate. The wide/regular size was too wide to fit into the pad "slot" on my Mystic UL sleeping bag, but my arms weren't falling off the side and I slept very well no matter what side of my body I slept on. Well insulated too, I was warm in 20 degree temperatures.

Marmot wins again!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Marmot makes the very best tents around for car-camping, and this one is no exception. The vertical walls near the bottom are game-changers, and really expand the liveable space of this tent. As many have already said, it works as a 3 person tent, but it's better as a comfortable and spacious 2-person. Plenty of room for two people's pads and sleeping bags, plus a backpack or duffel bag full of gear/clothes. Holds up well in the rain too, I stayed in this guy in a desert monsoon storm overnight, dumping rain, and not a drop of water got through!

I bought these to replace the crappy aluminum stakes that came with my Marmot Limelight 2p tent. These things are GREAT. They hammer into hard, rocky surfaces really well, and are easy to remove. They do really well in soft, sandy dirt as well if you turn them around so that the angle is opening towards the tent, catching more dirt. Can't beat these for the price!

I love the looks of this beanie; a bit of a slumpy look, without looking too dumpy. The quality seems to leave a bit to be desired though; the stitching at the peak is already falling apart on me, and it's actually not super warm. The knitting seems to allow a lot of air to come through, and in a bit of wind I can feel the cold air reaching my skin.

Looks good, but there are better options out there.

Another good flannel from Stoic. The quality isn't going to blow your mind, but its comfortable and looks good, and doesn't break the bank. This one runs small though; I'm typically a medium or large in most shirts, and the Medium for this is very tight in the shoulders for me. If you're on the fence, size up.

I've been in the market for some inexpensive boxer briefs that are still good quality and comfortable, and I've finally found them! After being disappointed in some offerings from Stoic and other brands, these things are great. Breathable, comfortable, with a decent inseam length, I love wearing these every day! I've got four pairs now, and I intent to get more!
