Life has been hectic, but I have been able to use the Gregory Paragon pack on two more backpacking trips since my last update – a week long trip with Big City Mountaineers in California and a long weekend trip along the Alabama-Tennessee border. The Paragon has performed spectacularly – comfort is top-notch; the pack is durable; and it can swallow all my gear including a bear canister and over a week’s worth of food. You can read my final update HERE.

After a summer’s worth of use the CGear Sandlite Mat has become a staple in my outdoor adventure kit. I have used it while car camping, backpacking and on trips to the beach. It is the perfect size for me to lay out camping gear or to use as a sitting pad on any surface. Click HERE for my final thoughts.
OLIGHT is a Chinese company that makes fine lighting products with multiple uses from everyday to hunting and tactical applications. They state that their mission is to provide quality illumination products to everyone. Their website is laid out well giving the user the ability to see lights based on their intended use. I will be reviewing their newly released M1T Raider flashlight. You can read my full review here.
One of the best things about reviewing gear is the ability to try out new products and learn about new companies. One of the new companies is Sakari Gear. Sakari Gear’s “goal is to be able to provide great quality outdoor gear at a great price, while creating a meaningful social impact.” Their first product is the Sisu Sleeping bag which I have the good fortune of reviewing. You can read my initial thoughts on the Sisu Sleeping bag HERE.
I was able to test out the GSI Stainless Camper in a different setting than I am used to. A trip to the South Carolina coast offered the chance to fry up a little bit of fresh caught seafood. This cook and eating set has been a blast to test and I have some final thoughts that you can check out by clicking here.
One of the things that makes car camping fun is hanging out around the campfire. The FirePit Rocker from GCI Outdoor makes hanging out around the campfire even better because it is super comfortable. I like the ability to lounge with my legs straight out and gently rock back and forth while enjoying a beverage. To read more of my update click here.
