Camp Chef Sherpa Camp Table and Kitchen Organizer
This system makes for a nice addition to our base-camp kitchen. First, it all fits inside the main organizer bag, and the handles are heavy duty, making it easy to carry. Second, it’s quick to set up and is sturdy when put together. It allows us to organize our kitchen tools and store any items that we don’t want pests getting into. The system is comprised of 4 zippered bags that are roughly 11” x 12” x 6” (one of which has a coated-fabric interior so you can use this one as a cooler or sink) that fit into a 4-way divider, and a 27.5” long x 17” wide x 28.5” tall table. The organizer has a zippered pouch on the outside that fits the tabletop during transport and can be used to store items when set up. Another feature we appreciate is the square piece of clear plastic on the front of each pouch where you can insert a list of what’s in the bag.
Yeti Rambler 20 oz Tumbler King Krab Orange
Like all Yeti products this piece of drinkware is nearly bulletproof. It keeps drinks hot or cold by way of its stainless-steel double-wall vacuum insulation, and if you fill it up with coffee, it will stay hot for hours. It comes with Yeti’s MagSlider Lid to help maintain your drink’s temperature. A big plus is both the lid and the tumbler are dishwasher safe. Note that the MagSlider Lid is not leakproof—if you knock the tumbler over it will leak. We use ours on road trips, in the boat, in camp, at work…basically everywhere.
Stone Glacier Skyscraper 2P Tent
This 4-season, double-wall, 2-man tent comes in just shy of 5 pounds, making it very suitable to any backcountry adventure. We used it on an elk hunt in snotty weather and loved its performance. The tent is easy to pitch, and it kept Publisher Marcus Weiner dry throughout some hellacious storms. The dual vestibules provide plenty of room for gear for a pair of hunters. The tent sports a low profile, which helps it perform well in the wind, and the 12 guylines allow you to stake out the tent to keep it secure in stormy weather. Marcus is looking forward to living in it on an 8-day Arctic caribou hunt this fall.
Yeti Boomer Dog Bowl
Gun Dogs columnist and Associate Editor Scott Haugen had this to say, “This bowl is incredibly durable, thanks to its double-wall, non-insulated, stainless-steel construction. Our bowls have many dents and dings in them, but no rust spots or punctures, and the non-slip ring on the bottom is tough and dependable. It’s perfect for kibble, raw food, even water. It’s simple to clean, be it wiping down with a towel or placing in the dishwasher. It’s built tough, making it ideal for Alaska’s canines!”
Yeti Trailhead Dog Bed
Our dogs love this bed. The insert comes out to make two beds (or one for home and one for travel). It’s super comfortable for our furry family members and it’s proven to be easy to clean when the puppy gets mudded up. The quilted liner which holds the foam core can be unzipped and washed in the washing machine. The EVA-molded base is sturdy, and the bottom is waterproof so you can use it outdoors, perhaps while camping, without fear of the bed soaking up moisture from the ground. Publisher Marcus Weiner and Editor George Krumm, who both own multiple dogs, gave glowing reviews after their dogs tested these beds in 2021. The bed comes in one size and is best for medium- to large dogs. It is roughly 40 inches long, 29 inches wide, and 6.5 inches high. If you want the best for your furry family member, this is the dog bed for you.
Stone Glacier Chilkoot 0° Sleeping Bag
This sleeping bag is designed for serious mountain hunters. This mummy bag has a 15 Denier Pertex Quantum shell and is filled with 850+ fill power HyperDRY 90/10 grey goose down (29.1 ounces of it). The shell material is designed to provide wind- and water resistance to protect the HyperDRY goose-down insulation. The ⅔-length zipper is paralleled by Dacron tape to reduce zipper snagging. It fits people up to 6’5” tall. It packs down into an 8.5” by 17.5” stuff sack, but it comes with a larger mesh storage bag to maintain loft when you’re not in the field. It weighs in at just 2 pounds, 10 ounces. Publisher Marcus Weiner slept in the bag on several hunts in late 2022. He shared that the bag is extremely warm and is very comfortable with plenty of room in the foot box and at the shoulder. Sleeping in this bag in Stone Glacier’s Skyscraper 2P Tent during sub-freezing conditions, he came out warm and rested after every night.
