Marmot Tungsten 1P First Time Pitching

The Marmot Tungsten 1P is an incredible one-person tent! I purchased this tent because it's small and lightweight but has ample headroom.

Mountain Hardwear BMG 105 Outdry Backpack Review

The Mountain Hardwear BMG 105 is a HUGE backpack! If you're a wilderness guide, like to pack a bunch of stuff or want to carry everything for your spouse too, this is an excellent pack! It had plenty of straps to lash things to on the exterior. When not extremely full, it's easy to compress.

DJI Osmo Pocket Perfect Campsite

The Osmo Pocket is first-in-breed. It features mechanically-stabilized video via a gimbal and an optional waterproof housing enables it to function underwater. I've been a long-time GoPro user since GoPro HERO2 but Osmo Pocket can be a game-changer! Osmo Pocket is small, lightweight and can record up to 4K60 video! It has an integrated screen
