  • Therm-a-Rest Vesper 32F Quilt

    There's light, and then there is ultralight. And ultralight these days has gotten crazy-light, thanks to companies like Therm-a-Rest. Their Vesper quilts is about as minimalist as you can possibly get in features, and it doesn't give an inch on performance to get there.

    Some people say you shouldn't kill the goose that lays the golden egg. Well I say screw them.

  • Slumberjack Wheeler Lake 20 Sleeping Bag

    Slumberjack makes tents, sleeping bags, clothing and other gear targeted at people who go outdoors to find something to bring home to eat.
