Tori Plunkett's Bio

Hi! I'm Tori from Arkansas. I started backpacking in 2011 and am so passionate about spending time on the trail and sharing my knowledge with others. I lead a Wilderness Ministry in Arkansas where we take women out, often for the first time, and they fall in love with God's creation and draw nearer to the heart of God. The fellowship in the wilderness is authentic and amazing! P.S. I am a gear junkie

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this to upgrade from my thermarest. I used it for a week while backpacking in Arkansas this Spring. Temp lows were 30F. This pad kept me pretty warm. It fits into my Big Agnes Roxy Ann sleeping bag with pad sleeve perfectly. I was able to put my pillow between the pad and the sleeve which allowed me a MUCH better nights sleep! It kept me from pad envy this year as I was off the ground at least 3 inches along with my backpacking partner. My only issue was the width being a bit narrow. It took me anywhere from 40-60 breaths to inflate and deflates in seconds. Overall I am happy with my purchase.

This tent has gotten me through weeks of rain, snow, and sunshine. I recently took it backpacking for a week with a friend. We split the weight, which is always helpful. We ran into some snow with temps around 30 degrees. Super light when splitting 3 ways! I have only slept 3 people in this tent once and it was surprisingly comfortable. We were 3 cozy ladies! This tent has never leaked on me before. I love the gear loft and window in one vestibule. The vestibules are spacious, always allowing plenty of room for my pack and all of my gear. It packs down small. All pros, No cons. I love this tent!

I have this jacket in magenta purple and I love it. I haven't had any problems with seeing feathers. However, I have a small hole now in the sleeve and some feathers come through. This jacket is a backpackers best friend. I put it on whenever stopped. It's remarkable how much heat this little jacket keeps in!

I have slowly upgraded my boots over time and these were a good option for me when I bought them. I've worn them for 3 years now and the soles are tough. The ankle support is pretty good. They aren't the most stable and I don't recommend them for backpacking with a heavy load. I personally get blisters on my big toes from them. They are very narrow boots.

You really can't go wrong with this stove. When my butane is too cold to work in my jetboil, I know this stove will fire right up. It's worth the extra weight of fuel if you're going out for longer than 2 days. You can cook gourmet meals (pancakes for me) or just boil water. It's perfect for group use as well.

This stove cooks well but is loud. I have the whisperlite and dragonfly. They are both great stoves. But I choose the whisperlite over this one simply because of sound. I enjoy conversation while cooking!

Sitting around with friends at night, I was the envy of the group as we spent a week in the Snowies of Wyoming. I use a Therma-Rest Scout pad that works perfectly with this chair. It is the most lightweight and cushion (optioned) seat I have come across. The only down side to this chair is having to wait to bring my sleeping pad to bed with me and pulling it out in the mornings to assemble. However, I was recently given a chair with poles that sits off the ground for backpacking. After trying it once, I quickly realized I was spoiled and do not mind the assembly . I carry the trekker with my tent poles on the side of my pack. I've used it for 3 years and it's been a great chair!

For me, a good pillow is the difference between sleeping or not sleeping. I will never go without my sea to summit pillow again. I love the soft fabric against my face. I am able to inflate/deflate according to my needs each night. It packs down so small and lightweight! It's a no brainer!

I have been using my Roxy Ann 15 degree bag for a year now. I usually freeze in 30 degree temps but this bag has kept me warm. I love the pad sleeve which keeps my bag from rolling around. The draft collar works great! I am a side sleeper and this bag allows me to bring my knees up to my side at night while not having too much room to heat. I couldn't be happier with this bag!
