Mountain Hardwear Habitat 5 Tent

Mountain Hardwear Habitat 5 Tent – A popular family camping tent. At first glance, the Mountain Hardwear Habitat 5 Tent might just appears to be a pretty standard and basic family camping tent. But, in fact, the Mountain Hardwear Habitat 5 Tent is far from basic. This simple looking design is crafted as such to help make the tent as […]


The North Face Fulcrum 35 Pack

The North Face Fulcrum 35 Pack – Multi sport daypack. I enjoy the long two week plus backpacking trips just as much as the next guy. Unfortunately I don’t have time in my life to take extended hikes like that on a regular basis anymore. I tend to do a lot of intense over nighters or weekend hikes. Because most […]


Gregory Alpinisto 50 Backpack

Gregory Alpinisto 50 Pack – Great load distribution. I just recently was exposed to the Gregory Alpinisto 50 Backpack is was pretty impressed with what I learned about. I haven’t had a chance to try out this pack first hand, but if its features work as well as they are described to, the Gregory Alpinisto 50 Backpack should be a […]


REI Half Dome 4 HC Tent

REI Half Dome 4 HC Tent – Light and affordable four person tent. Picking out the perfect multi person backpacking tent can be tricky. One major factor that always haunts the cheapskate in me is the price of four person tents. If I am the only one paying for a tent that numerous other people will be using, I don’t […]


REI Ultra Light Rain Jacket

REI Ultra Light Rain Jacket – Affordable and comfortable. Thanks to the warm weather here, for the last few weeks I have been talking about how important good warm weather gear is to have. People always make such a fuss about colder weather gear, and with good reason. But if you ask me, warm weather gear gets the short end […]


Sierra Designs Vapor Light 2 XL Tent

Sierra Designs Vapor Light 2 XL Tent – Great summer tent for two. I don’t know what its like where you live, but the weather is just now starting to get beautiful here. In fact, it is just about down right hot! I spent last weekend in an older backpacking tent that was hot, muggy, and no ventilation other than […]


Water Shoes

Lightweight hiking shoes are great for exploring during them summer if you are the sort of hiker that tends to stay on the trail and only explore well beaten paths. But if you are anything like me, you constantly find yourself of the trail and exploring creeks, rivers, boulder fields, all sorts of over things you won’t find on the […]


CamelBak Rim Runner Hydration Pack

CamelBak Rim Runner Hydration Pack – Perfect for summer exploration. Summer time is officially here. This means it is only going to get hotter before it gets cooler. As such, it is important to stay hydrated during all your summer time activities and explorations. And by hydrated during your summer time activities, I don’t me drinking enough beer while you […]


REI Venus 75 Womens Backpack

REI Venus 75 Womens Backpack – Great deal for the ladies. I’ll be the first to admit that before I actually tried out REI gear I just thought of it as slightly over priced generic outdoor gear. To me it was a step up from the camping gear you could get at Wal-Mart, but no where near as good as […]


REI Travel Down +45 Sleeping Bag

REI Travel Down +45 Sleeping Bag – Cheap and versatile warm weather bag. After having just spent two nights in a muggy tent with warm temperatures, even in the evening, I realized just how important a good warm weather sleeping bag is. So often when people look for a sleeping bag they only think about it keeping them warm. For […]
