Brooks Range Tension 40 Tent Preview

Brooks Range Tension 40 Tent Preview

Brooks Range has outdone themselves with this new offering for Summer 2014. I was a little afraid to take this featherweight (weighing in at barely four pounds) out in the late fall in the northwest. It rains a little out here.

The Montane Grand Tour 55 Backpack Review

The Montane Grand Tour 55 Backpack Review

I crammed the Montane Grand Tour 55 full of ropes, serrated shovels, crampons and ice axes on a recent mountain rescue training operation. The pack was heavily abused while fully loaded as I slid it along ice and snow and dragged it through thick brush. It still looks brand new!

Easton Rimrock Tent Review

Easton Rimrock Tent Review

However, after my first night out with the Easton Rimrock 2P tent, I came to realize how far tent technology has come in the last five years, and started to think that maybe it was time to retire my stained, patched, heavy old friend to backyard campouts/car camping.

Light & Motion Solite 250 Headlamp

Light & Motion Solite 250 Headlamp
