Easton Kilo Carbon 2P Tent
Weighing a mere 2.7 pounds packed, the three-season Kilo Carbon two-person tent is ideal for rugged backcountry trips. A 35-inch head height is perfect for sitting, and Carbon ION poles are strong enough to double as a drying rack for wet clothing.
Thermarest Mira Sleeping Bag
With a 15-degree rating, the new women’s bag from Thermarest, the Mira, is an all-around winner for ultralight backcountry adventures. It features compressible 750-plus-fill goose down, a Toe-asis foot warmer, reflective ThermaCapture lining and straps for securing it to your sleeping pad (sold separately). Men’s bag also available.
Camillus CK-9 Knife
New from Camillus Knives, the CK-9 is a hardy tool built backcountry tough. At9 inches long overall with a 4.5-inch cutting edge, this knife wears a tan micarta handle and durable black Traction coating on its thick 1095 high-carbon steel blade. Comes complete with a survival whistle and ballistic nylon sheath.
Stone Glacier Sky 5100 Pack
Stone Glacier’s heavy-duty Sky 5100 with KRuX frame is a 5,100-cubic-inch pack that converts to a 3,500-cubic-incher. A large center zipper gives quick access to the main bag and four internal pockets. Lid converts into a small daypack. Available accessories include rifle sling, spotting scope pocket and dry bag for hauling meat.
When the mountain zaps you mentally and physically, a few breaths of 95 percent pure oxygen found in O2 Unleashed will boost energy, increase alertness and put you back on your feet. Ultra small and lightweight, it’s a simple and effective way to beat fatigue and altitude.
MSRP: $41.97 (3-pack).
Jetboil MiniMo Camp Stove
The new MiniMo from Jetboil is perfect for meals on the mountain. Features include a wider and stouter 1-liter cooking vessel for easier access to your grub and an upgraded valve for better flame control. Weighs only 14 ounces.
Mountain House Freeze Dried Meals
Freeze-dried meals from Mountain House aren’t touted as “a five-star meal in a pouch” for no reason. They are just that good. Simply add boiling water, and in minutes you’ll have a hot meal, more than welcome on long hunts. Various meals available from entrees to desserts.
Sawyer MINI Water Filter
Perhaps the most versatile filter on the market, the Sawyer MINI works with the included drinking pouch, your hydration pack, a soda bottle or even the complementary drinking straw for instant stream-to-belly quenching. Weighs 2 ounces, filters up to 100,000 gallons and includes plunger for cleaning.
