This is a place to share fair and systematic reviews of gear. Share the good, bad and ugly as well as including how you tested it and reviewed the gear. This is not the place to carry on about a bit of gear that failed, sometimes good gear has a lemon - this is more about systematic reviews. Although this can be a way to help gear manufactures with feedback, this is not the place to hassle them or ask for money back.

Start each thread with
[tag]Brand, product, RRP in AUD. The tags have two parts the type of gear and type of testing/review. eg
[Sleeping bag | Unboxing] Kmart Summit Hooded $29
[Stove | Field test]Jetboil, flash $150

Suggested review types. Unboxing, field test, 1 year on, stress test, teardown.
If someone else has already reviewed the same product in a similar method then please use the initial thread to include your review. Please note if the gear was provide to you for free, loan, discount or if you paid full RRP.

waterproof breathable jackets can only shift your body moisture through them when you're sitting still or doing light exercise on a cold day, hiking usually drenches the inside with sweat.. neoshell is the most breathable membrane out there, and in dry cold conditions i can saturate that on the inside,, i still need pitzips to help vent it..

Pit vents are under-appreciated, but the provide an elegant solution to internal humidity. Your body heats up the internal air, which can then absorb more moisture. The pit vents expel that moisture-laden air to the outside, and it's not your problem that the expelled air will cool down and dump its excess moisture as condensation somewhere else.
