I use this pop-up tent for agility trials. It is easy, roomy, and the quality is great. No wasted space on the sides, as it has plenty of height. Folding is not problem! Just like a folding umbrella. And the bag is so spacious, there is no worry that the tent will fit after you have folded it. Every time I take this to a trial, other handlers approach me for info about this tent. I am sure that I will see more very soon….I love it!..Oh, and my dog does too.
This is the BEST portable spa EVER. I know this because it’s my third one in 10 years. First one was from a home & garden show and I can’t remember the name. The second one was INTEX which I heard was a great brand since I have a queen blow up bed which works great for company. I was getting so discouraged because I have a lousy bad back and a spa really helps if I can get the darn thing to get hot. The INTEX never worked correctly and trying to find a phone # was a joke. One year warranty but could not get ahold of anyone, so I gave up and used it for my grandkids as a pool in the summer. When I saw this Coleman Spa and the great price, I said what the heck…..you can always find a Coleman website everywhere. It is the best, hottest, nicest, spa ever. I highly recommend it……I love how the cover fits and insulates the water.
I used this liner often on a rugged and lengthy trip through China. It is a lifesaver. It packs very light and small, is long enough to be very comfortable even for someone fairly tall, and is essentially a sleep sack and pillow cover in one. It was fine in hot conditions, as it breathes, and insulating and warming in cold conditions. The texture is silky and not in the least scratchy. I especially loved it when we had to take a particularly filthy sleeper car for one long train ride, and it kept me from any contact with the truly disgusting bedding and pillow on the sleeper. I am not traveling anywhere without it again.
I have spent many nights in a military canvas cot over the years (including deployments), and they weren’t long enough or wide enought for my 6′-2″, 220 lb. frame. Needless to say, I woke every morning with an aching back.This Chinook cot is very easy to set up and make level on uneven ground. A man twice my size could lay extremely comfortably in this cot as it is huge. It doesn’t shift or wiggle when you move around. The back rest adjusts up and down effortlessly. I purchased this cot for tent camping, but I may purchase one or two more for when guests want to spend the night. I strongly reccommend this cot.
Great basic sleeping bag for kids. Nice color and decently warm. Survived a trip through the washer and dryer with no problems. Good quality zipper, has a small interior pocket at the top front, and comes with attached cords to roll/ tie it up, and a matching stuff sack for transport.

At first I was dubious about the bag not having an insulated bottom. I’m old school and all my previous bags were insulated all the way around. Turns out I really like that design idea. The pocket keeps the pad in place, and not having bottom insulation keeps the stuffed dimensions smaller. I’m using a 3″ pad so insulation is not an issue. I love the room to move around. I love the zippers on both sides to control temperature. And I love the the way they did the hood and comforter collar. I’ve used the bag in temps from 60-75 with no additional layers of insulation (bare skin). At 75, it’s too warm and I needed to unzip and leave it turned down. At 60-70, it was just right. Below 60, I needed to add insulation depending on how cold it was. I tried it wearing light, mid, or heavy base layers and also with a light or heavy bag liner. With a heavy base layer and a heavy liner I was comfortable to 20 degrees. I prefer base layers because there is more ability to move around inside the bag. Liners tend to get tangled. I guess my point is, depending on how you sleep and with a little experimentation, the bag should perform well from about 20 to 75 degrees. Overall, the bag has many desirable comfort and design features that make it the best bag I’ve ever owed for car and tent camping. Not the right bag for backpacking. BTW, I’m 6’/215lbs.
I did not have high hopes when I bought this, thought maybe it was a gimmick, but b/c we love popcorn so much, thought I should give it a try camping. Incredibly impressed! We just sprayed some non stick cooking spray on both sides, added 1/4 cup of kernels, then shook it over the fire. Takes about five minutes (and pretty constant shaking) to pop, but not one single kernel burned, and almost all of it popped–a better performance than my hot air popper at home. I am so glad I decided to try it out! A great addition to our camping equipment!
Bought this hammock for a bear hunting trip in cherokee forest. I will be on the trip next week and will update the review after properly field tested.
Initial review: this hammock seems to be exactly what I was looking for. A very lightweight but durable hammock that will keep bugs out. I hung it between a couple trees in my yard and laid in it for an hour or so. So comfortable I fell asleep within a couple mins. The net is great and kept the bugs out. The next day I flipped the hammock over and laid in it without the net over me. It worked great and did not stretch or rip the netting. I will put it to the tru test next week in the mountains and will update my review.
So far, so good. My 11 year old son wanted a hammock for his birthday for his scout camping trips. After tons of research through amazon, hammock forums, and review sites, we settled on this model of the Hennessy hammock. This comes with everything you need – suspension, hammock, integrated bug net, and tarp. Once you consider all you get with this package, it is a great deal. The manufacturer’s videos were very helpful with demonstrating how to set up the hammock. One trial in the back yard, and he was able to set it up himself in the woods for a 2 night trip. It rained one night and he was dry. He says that he slept comfortably in it, more comfortably than the times we slept on the ground. It is certainly the right size for an adult, though I have never spent the night in it.
The quality of worksmanship is great. We bought it through Amazon, because of the free prime shipping when we needed it in time for the weekend trip, but I would check the manufacturer’s site as well, as they often have sales, and you can customize which tarp you get with the hammock you choose, unlike here.

From cross country trips and car camping my puffin blanket has been put to use, packs down great for travel although I wouldn’t backpack with it. It’s quite durable and has withstood my dog laying and jumping all over it with no issues.
I did a fair amount of research before settling on this mask. The manufacturer’s website “sold” it for me: It is evident that those guys take their mission seriously and are not in it for the quick buck.
The mask does a great job of blocking the light, mainly owing to the larger-than-usual eye part mask.
As far as the sound, the mask does muffle it somewhat, but does not reduce it to any considerable degree. That though is to be expected: Even pressing really hard on one’s ears with one’s hands does not greatly reduce noise, so how could a product like this… – particularly since this mask does not apply anywhere the same force or pressure. A pair of ear plugs is included with the mask (which, incidentally, has an inside pocket – nice touch!), which – if we are honest – is the only thing available out there that will *really* slash the noise levels.
Even though I am a tosser and turner and a very light sleeper, the mask stayed on, in the right position, throughout the night without having had to wrap it too tightly. Apart from muffling sound, the padding around the mask makes it very comfortable to wear.
Last but definitely not least, when there turned out to be an issue with my order, the vendor responded quickly, efficiently, and very courteously.
OK, so I am addicted to those plastic travel cups that look like a fast food cup, with the screw-on lid and straw. Trouble is, they break really easily and I am clumsy. I thought of getting a Nalgene bottle, but those are pretty big and bulky and don’t fit in my car cup holders. With a big trip coming up, I thought it would be fun to try a new type of bottle that I could fold up really small to fit in my luggage, but then have a full-sized water bottle when I get where I am going. I was offered a discount to review this product, and here is my honest review:
1. Very well made. This this will take a beating. The silicone is thick and all the plastic parts are very well made.
2. Leak proof. I filled it with water and threw it around my kitchen for awhile, with no leaks. The small pop-top lid that covers just the drinking spout actually screws on for even more protection when you need it.
3. Folds up. This is the best part. Open the pop top so the air can get out, roll up the bottle, latch it to itself (very obvious how to do this when you see it) and pull the cuff up over it to hold it in place. Very easy, and you can’t do that with a Nalgene bottle.
4. Fits my cup holder. Nuff said.
If you are looking for a sturdy travel water bottle that won’t break and won’t leak, this is the one for you.
This pillow was a gift for a friend and they absolutely loved it. It was plush, yet firm enough to provide support for the lower back when used for their office chair. The print was a bonus because he is very outdoorsy. Would definitely recommend for a friend or as an easy gift.
I bought this chair to hang out in Central Park in NYC. It is extremely sturdy and very well constructed. I’m 6ft 2in 210 lbs, and the chair is totally comfortable and the material seems like it will endure as much abuse as I can throw at it.
This chair is very low profile (e.g you sit very low to the ground). So instead of sitting at a regular 90 Deg angle you are lounging with your legs stretched out. This is exactly what I wanted because I didnt want to sit at 90 degrees, but do note- you are sitting lower to the ground than most camp chairs would put you.
The carrying weight is okay for me, I havent owned any other camp chairs, but i’d venture to guess that this is not the lightest chair on the market. That being said, I regularly walk 1+ miles with the chair slung over my shoulder to Central Park (and elsewhere) in NYC. Its not featherweight, but its totally worth it once you find that perfect spot to lounge in the park!
Finally, on the arms of the frame (where you’re elbows will be sitting) there is a sturdy cushion foam material wrapped around the (aluminum?) frame. This is a really really nice touch and makes the chair feel extra cushy and premium/luxurious. Having a nice foam arm rest makes that chair look cooler, and also keeps your arms cozy while you lounge.
It was an easy choice to buy this one and I’d 100% recommend it!
Bought one for my girlfriend and she loved it so much I had to step up and get her another one in the fun print! She wears it all winter long and any time we go camping, fishing where the weather is a bit questionable. Tell everyone you know, they need a Ninja Suit!!!
Love this tent! It’s amazing! It’s really light, packs real small but isn’t overly small when set up. Don’t get me wrong, it is small inside, it’s only a 2 person backpacking tent but I’ve been in some that were way too cramped. This one is perfect size for me (I’m 5’9″) and my wife (she’s 5’4″) We don’t feel like we’re sleeping on top of each other. It sets up in minutes too. Super simple.
The lights inside are the best idea since sliced bread! They work great. Two different settings, high and low. Neither one is overly bright, just what you need.
I would recommend getting the footprint for it if you’re going to be going back country camping, it’ll extend the life of the tent.
Overall this is an excellent tent. I can’t even think of any cons. Definitely would recommend it.
I will give you a bit of info on me so that others who were in my boat will be able to better understand. Im a large guy @ 6’5″ and 330lbs. So for those of you wondering how it will hold up to us big guys, it did well. I never felt like it was under too much strain and was also long enough. I bought this tentcot with intentions of using it on monthly Boy Scout campouts. We generally dont hike in to our sleeping quarters otherwise you might be leaving this at home unless you have a pack mule to carry it for you. That was one of the biggest issues, but I knew this before getting it, so it was an expected problem. I have a truck, so it fits in the bed of it easily, if you have a small car that the rear seat doesnt fold down to slide it through you will be strapping this thing to the roof, it is large(see product for dimensions). I did buy an air mattress to fit inside, and fits almost perfectly to the inside dimensions, only problem with that for us longer people, with the approx. 8″ of height added from the mattress and with the gradual taper from the ends of the tent, you lose about 6″ of length(roughly). In otherwords your head and feet will be touching the ends at full extension if you are 6’5″ or taller. I dont see it as a problem for me because I dont sleep at full extension, although I did not use this during my campout yet to see how it worked. I took the tentcot on its first excursion to Woodbadge(Scout Leadership Training), and it just happened to be in the low 20’s so it got a good test, as well as a little bit of rain, but it held up well, and was very comfortable. Something else I need to mention is there is a bar that runs through the middle of the bed, its as if there were 2 cots stacked side by side, so if you were thinking of getting the double so that you could spraul out, you will definitely need the air mattress. I like this bar, because im a side sleeper and dont roll around much when sleeping so it was very comfy. I used the other side to set up all of my camping gear(backpack, clothes, lantern etc…). I also bought the underneath gear storage bag, i thought i would use this for my shoes and things that might be dirty or smell, to keep the tent clean, but also keeping the stuff from getting soaked in the rain if left outside. Its also very easy to setup. I do recommend practice at home, but after one try at home, I saw how easy it was, and you will always be the 1st one finished setting up your tent! As I use it more, I may notice more good or bad things, but for now I am very pleased with my product. And everyone that sees it will want one!

This is my second pair of Baffin slippers–wore through my first pair b/c I wore them so much! My house has ceramic tile throughout most of it, and it gets CHILLY. With my Baffins, I have never had any problem with my feet being cold (or conversely, getting too hot). I highly recommend them!
I am a hammock camper and really hate traditional sleeping bags because they always end up bunched up on one side or the other. This thing is perfect! It is great for hammock camping and all other kinds of camping. Rated to 35 degrees it’s plenty warm for me. It will probably keep me warm at lower temperatures as well with some layering, and your friends will think you are awesome! Extremely comfortable. Slits so your hands can get a firm grip on that PBR. Highly recommended for camping festivals as well. Sizing chart is pretty much accurate. I am 5’9 and got a large. A little baggy but I like the extra room.

This was a great choice for our little one. She’s six months, 25″, 17lbs, and has plenty of room to grow (medium). It keeps her warm and cozy, I wish they made this in an adult size!!! Even washes well!
You can’t go wrong with wigwams line of made in USA socks and these are no exception. Wigwam has been around long enough to know where good wool comes from and that’s not nearly as treated via bleaching and dyeing and the like process. Most of these are not dyed in fact for the ‘salt and pepper’ variety for sure I can attest. But much of wool is processed to such an extent as to lose the softness that’s there naturally and replaced with some facsimile of that texture which never is as tough or wear resistant as natural wool. It’s because wigwam makes this effort to find hand-spun natural wool that I love their socks. I’ve been hiking, working and playing in them for at least 15 years. These are definitely not socks you want to overlook if you don’t mind raw wool. El Pine socks can satisfy a fairly cold 30 or below rating as well (check with Wigwam for sure). I am partial to Patagonia’s style for the blends and thermal insulation but for straight wool I came back to my old friend Wigwam and they didn’t disappoint: I am now up to 3 pairs of these and may not be done yet.
Purchased for an Alaskan kayaking trip. They worked very well despite being in water. No complaints. For the price, excellent. Only objection was the smell when I was also wearing heavy boots over them but the smell dissipated immediately upon washing them in machine.
These things are wonderful! I bought two of these since I have been waking up in the middle of the night and have had trouble getting back to sleep because I feel overheated. I grab one of these things and throw it underneath me and cools me off instantly. Now the one drawback to this is (like the other cooling gel mat products) this product DOES retain heat, so after about an hour of use, it has become very warm to the touch. When I next wake up, I just swap it out for the old/warm one for the new/cool one and that lasts me until my alarm goes off.
I have used my jet boil several times now. I am constantly amazed at just how fast it actually boils the water. I have not timed it but my guess would be about 3 minutes to boil 2 cups of water. Very happy with this purchase.
