Backpacker Magazine has a reputation of throughly “field testing” their gear before they make recommendations on it’s quality. Any gear that makes their “Gear of the Year” list usally comes highly recommended and ends up being duralbe, functional, and well worth the money.
Highlights of this year’s list include the Jansport Whittaker LT Pack (Yes, I was drawn to the pack first!), the MSR Reactor camping stove, which has been garnering a lot of attention it seems, and Big Anges Emerald Mountain tent.
So much gear…so little money!
