Mantis 2 Tent Review

{

This simple-setup, two-person tent offers a lot of bang for your buck: oodles of venting, multiple interior pockets, twin doors/vestibules and a mesh gear loft. Slim-packing and only 2.8 kilograms, it’s backpack- or kayak-ready. (And I love supporting Canadian companies.)

T-100 Sleeping Bag Review

{

At a thrifty $80, the Hotcore T-100 sleeping bag punches well above its price weight. The quality of design and manufacturing is impressive from this Canadian company. The insulation is siliconized Trueloft microfibre and you get a double layer of it around the core area, between the neck and belt line. Unlike down sleeping bags, the T-100 is not afraid of wet environments. I think it is ideally suited for the shoulder-season boating and kayaking. The bag is rated to 0°C, weighs 1.2 kg and comes with a compression sack.

Wingman Tarp Review

{

Tarps make campsites better-like this three-metre-area, seam-taped, waterproof­-coated, 75D polyester unit from Canadian company Hotcore. It comes ready to hoist with six high-viz guy-lines and two grom­mets, and at just 600 grams it’s good for car-camping or backcountry excursions.

Genesis Sleeping Bag Review

{

One of Hotcore Products newest models, the Genesis mummy bag is rated to a perfect-for-fall -7 degrees Celsius and offers a two-way zipper for ventilation on those toastier September nights. The cozy brushed polyester lining makes snoozing easy and the shoulder drawcord helps to snuggle-in when the temps drop. But the standout feature from this Canadian company is value-for the price, it would be difficult if not impossible, to get a warmer bag.

This lightweight tent is a great buy at a great price offering room and versatility all while only taking a small space in your pack.
