Big Agnes Seedhouse SL2
At only 2lbs. 14ozs. this is a very light double wall tent. I loved the all mesh walls which helps with ventilation and I never experienced condensation, but there were a few problems I had. Unless ...

The prolite3 short fits my pad sleeve perfect because thats what my sleeve was designed for. Thats about the only positive attribute for this pad. Even with seam sealer on bottom it slides around ...

Gossamer Gear Nightlight Torso
I love my nightlight torso, but I wish it folded similar to the z-rest. I only use two of the three sections because I use it as hip padding and not so much for insulation. I use a thinlight pad for...

Headsweats Race Cap
At under 2.0 oz. this is a great cap for above freezing temps. Coolmax material breathes and wicks away sweat at the same time. The terrycloth headband absorbs almost all of the sweat and is very so...

Patagonia R1 Balaclava

Backpacking Light Ti Esbit stove
I love this little stove. It fits my SP Trek 700 pot perfectly and I was suprised to find it is very stable. I have had no issues with the rivet. It gets great looks when you pull it out.

Snow Peak Trek 700
As has been mentioned in the forums the lid on the SP 700 is very heavy. Other than that , it fits perfectly in my Firelite Ti esbit stove. The 26oz capacity is plenty and lets me boil water for my ...

Patagonia MicroPuff Vest
I agree with all the great qualities others have mentioned about the Micropuff Pullover, but one thing to know is the cut is rather large. I wear a size Large in all other Patagonia gear but when I g...
