ULA Conduit or Golite Jam2?
I used the Jam1 a few years ago and then moved to the Conduit and am very happy about that decision. First, I did not like the pad sleeve or lack there of on the Jam1, the little foam piece that...

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 ...

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...

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...

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.
