Amazon.com Product Description

Lightweight and versatile, this three-pole dome tent from Wenger assembles in seconds thanks to its color-coded ping-and-ring attachment system. The tent's shock-corded fiberglass frame weighs a mere 9 pounds, 10 ounces--light enough for most hiking backpacks. Plus, two-door access and double roof vents, make this model far more versatile than other two- and three-person tents. The tent's sidewalls are made of polyester with a 600mm coating--which resists rain and dew--while the floor is made of durable nylon taffeta. For added convenience, the main circular door is designed to hinge to any side, letting campers find the setup that works best for them.

Other features include a gear/loft organizer, two mesh utility pockets for gear storage, and a flashlight loop. The tent comes with a 600D polyester zippered duffle bag for transport, along with pole and stake bags, and measures 8 by 7 by 4.3 feet (W x D x H).

Selecting a Tent
Fortunately, there are all kinds of tents for weekend car campers, Everest expeditions, and everything in-between. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Expect the Worst
In general, it's wise to choose a tent that's designed to withstand the worst possible conditions you think you'll face. For instance, if you're a summer car camper in a region where weather is predictable, an inexpensive family or all purpose tent will likely do the trick--especially if a vehicle is nearby and you can make a mad dash for safety when bad weather swoops in! If you're a backpacker, alpine climber or bike explorer, or if you like to car camp in all seasons, you'll want to take something designed to handle more adversity.

Three- and Four-Season Tents
For summer, early fall and late spring outings, choose a three-season tent. At minimum, a quality three season tent will have lightweight aluminum poles, a reinforced floor, durable stitching, and a quality rain-fly. Some three-season tents offer more open-air netting and are more specifically designed for summer backpacking and other activities. Many premium tents will feature pre-sealed, taped seams and a silicone-impregnated rain-fly for enhanced waterproofness.

For winter camping or alpine travel, go with a four season model. Because they typically feature more durable fabric coatings, as well as more poles, four-season tents are designed to handle heavy snowfall and high winds without collapsing. Of course, four-season tents exact a weight penalty of about 10 to 20 percent in trade for their strength and durability. They also tend to be more expensive.

Domes, Tunnels and Sacks
Tents are broadly categorized into two types, freestanding, which can stand up on their own, and those that must be staked down in order to stand upright. Freestanding tents often incorporate a dome-shaped design, and most four-season tents are constructed this way because a dome leaves no flat spots on the outer surface where snow can collect. Domes are also inherently stronger than any other design. Meanwhile, many three-season models employ a modified dome configuration called a tunnel. These are still freestanding, but they require fewer poles than a dome, use less fabric, and typically have a rectangular floor-plan that offers less storage space than a dome configuration. Many one and two-person tents are not freestanding, but they make up for it by being more lightweight. Because they use fewer poles, they can also be quicker to set up than a dome.

Size Matters
Ask yourself how many people you'd like to fit in your fabric hotel now and in the future. For soloists and minimalists, check out one-person tents. If you're a mega-minimalist, or if you have your eye on doing some big wall climbs, a waterproof-breathable bivy sack is the ticket. Some bivy sacks feature poles and stake points to give you a little more breathing room. Also, if you don't need bug protection and you want to save weight, check out open-air shelters.

Families who plan on car camping in good weather can choose from a wide range of jumbo-sized tents that will accommodate all your little ones with room to spare. A wide range of capacities is also available for three- and four-season backpacking and expedition tents. Remember, though, the bigger the tent you buy, the heavier it will be, although it's easy to break up the tent components among several people in your group. It's also helpful to compare the volume and floor-space measurements of models you're considering.

Amazon.com Product Description

Take the family camping in style - and protection from the elements - with the Columbia CB-5300 Bugaboo dome-style tent, which fits four to five people. It provides a heady 74-inch center height and features a 1200 millimeter double-coated fly, sealed seams, and a polyethylene tub floor. The reflective zipper pulls make it easy to get in and out of the tent - even in the dark. It comes with a remote-controlled light (with a 65-foot reach) that attaches easily for exceptional nighttime security and visibility.

The Clean Sweep zippered floor flap makes it easy to sweep out debris. The two storage foot lockers are accessible from outside and inside the tent so you can easily store your gear out of the way. Other features include a quick-release buckle system, two hanging cup holders, and a removable door mat.

The Bugaboo's skylights offer large areas of mesh for maximum airflow and awe-inspiring views of the night sky. In addition, the rainfly has clear panels with zippered covers that offer you the option of having night views or no morning sun in your face. The Bugaboo's venting system creates a vortex that flushes hot air up through the roof, providing fresh air all night long. For maximum climate control, open or close the lower vents to feel the cool night breeze or keep warm air in.

The CB-5300 features the GoBe Dry Ultimate Rain Protection System, which combines patent pending fabric, component, and seam technology that culminates in exceptional protection from the elements, in particular rain, in any and all terrain. The DryTek Fabric repels moisture with a protective coating. The DryFloor Tub design elevates the floor seams to keep away water, while the DryGuard Skirt deflects rain from the floor seams and stake loops.

Specifications:

  • Base Size: 12 x 9 feet
  • Center Height: 74 inches
  • Poles: 4 x 9.5 millimeter fiberglass poles
  • Weight: 21 pounds

About Columbia Sportswear
Founded in 1938, Columbia Sportswear Company has grown from a small family-owned hat distributor to one of the world's largest outerwear brands and the leading seller of skiwear in the United States. Columbia's extensive product line includes a wide variety of outerwear, sportswear, rugged footwear and accessories. Columbia specializes in developing innovative products that are functional yet stylish and offer great value. Eighty-year-old matriarch Gert Boyle, Chairman of the Board, and her son, Tim Boyle, President and CEO, lead the company. Columbia's history starts with Gert's parents, Paul and Marie Lamfrom, when they fled Germany in 1937. They bought a small hat distributorship in Portland, Oregon, and named it Columbia Hat Company, after the river bordering the city. Soon frustrated by poor deliveries from suppliers, the Lamfroms decided to start manufacturing products themselves. In 1948, Gert married college sweetheart Neal Boyle, who joined the family business and later took the helm of the growing company. When Neal suddenly died of a heart attack in 1970, Gert enlisted help from Tim, then a college senior. After that it wasn't long before business really started to take off. Columbia was one of the first companies to make jackets from waterproof/breathable fabric. They introduced the breakthrough technology called the Columbia Interchange System, in which a shell and liner combine for multiple wearing options. In the early 1980s, then 60 year-old Gert began her role as "Mother Boyle" in Columbia's successful and popular advertising campaign. In 1998 the company went public, and moved into a new era as a world leader in the active outdoor apparel industry. Today, Columbia Sportswear employs more than 1,800 people around the world and distributes and sells products in more than 50 countries and to more than 12,000 retailers internationally.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Columbia Quality Tent! Must Read.....
I purchased this tent for my husband & I to use with 2 cots for the tent. The tent boasts a 12X9 size, but I beg to differ. The entry-way eliminates some much-needed space, and if it were 12X9, our 2 cots snuggly fit horizontally inside with a quaint spot to place our belongings at our feet. I think without the cots, you could fit 3 adults in this tent. In my opinion, people do not like to be sleeping like 'sardines', but have a little room. Overall, I am happy with this tent, it has nice features, great floor, and comes with a battery operated light that velro's to the outside and ceiling of tent(with remote control!)Easy to put together (2 adults) and is completely dry to rain! I've seen the Black Mountain (columbia) and that is bigger and also a great value! Happy Camping!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Family Tent
We purchased this tent so we can introduce our family (my wife, 2 young children (4 and 3)) to the joys of camping.This tent easily hold all 4 of us with plenty of room for another kid and all of our gear.
The tent sets up quickly, but you need 2 people to properly pitch it - so one man setup is out.It becomes pretty tight and sturdy once properly setup and staked, and has very good ventilation.
The directions are not the best in the world, but they will do. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars It sucks!
I don't understand why guys here rate this unit 5 stars.
I ordered one. The one I got definitely sucks. Poor built. There are many marks and scratches in the unit. Seems not to be a true Swiss Army or maybe it's a refurbished one. I returned it and amazon charged me the shipping fee!
Anyone has the same problem?

5-0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary.
This is extraordinary. The pocket knife yes, but also the fact that I am writing a review in praise of it. I'm a thought guy not a thing guy; I review books, typically philosophical ones. But this is a thing fit for a philosopher if ever there was one.

Circumstances have conspired to make me spend some time contemplating my Swiss Army Knife. I recently lost mine. It was a dark day. I've had this knife in my pocket for something like 25 years and use it daily. Yes, a person might get along fine without this knife, but why would they? Here's a quick, although partial, inventory: The saw comes in handy for landscaping and plumbing work (cuts PVC and ABS pipe better than a hack saw does) and for gardening (pruning limbs up to 1.75 inch diameter or more). Two knives, two screw drivers, an awl/punch/drill, a can opener, bottle opener, even a toothpick. The scissors are excellent for personal grooming (trimming finger nails and nose hairs). The steel is highest quality and holds sharp edges for years, even under constant use.
There's simply nothing like it: compact, intensely functional, inexpensive, dependable high quality. It'll be your inanimate buddy; you'll use it at home, at work, in the glorious wilderness, should you be fortunate enough to find yourself there. If you want to endear yourself to some philosopher (or perhaps even an ignorant numbskull), or maybe a guy with a nose hair problem, here's the perfect gift.
Other people probably make a 'similar' product but don't waste your money on a knock-off, wannabe or Johnny-come-lately; this knife is a legend for every good reason. The only potential drawback cannot be blamed on the knife itself -- if you've forgotten it's in your pocket you will have it rudely confiscated before you can board a commercial airliner, this we must blame on a world sadly deficient in good philosophy.
It's a beautiful thing. I found mine a few days after I lost it. My nails are clipped and life is good.

5-0 out of 5 stars All I can say is, everyone should have one....
Whether you're a guy or a gal, you'll find yourself using it over and over again. These things NEVER wear out. A must-have for everyone's pocket or purse - it's your "micro toolbox." Keep one in the car too - it just might help save your life someday.

5-0 out of 5 stars Elderly enough to merit the name Victoria
My old one from the early 1950s is stamped Victoria as this company did back then, and a few of the blades are different, but it has survived much use. The plastic sides have long since decomposed and been replaced with handmade light alloy. The only thing that's been cheapened since then is apparently the liners. They were once white brass, but all have been aluminum for decades now. There is no better pocketknife made, in my opinion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best of the large Swiss Army knives
This knife is my favorite of all the Victorinox army knives. It has the most useful tools, basic blades, the corkscrew, the sizzors, the awl (with hole for sewing). You can get the little eye glass screw driver and stow it in the corkscrew. The other larger knives IMO are too bulky and have tools which really aren't up to any major hard work. Pruning knives for trees, fish scalers, magnifiing glasses etc. for instance. So if you are going swiss army this is the best of the bunch. Price/size/utility, its a good deal. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Old-fashioned practicality
I like the heft of cast iron, and the cooking results, too.I have well-seasoned skillets handed down from my grandmother.But every once in a while you come across something so darned "obvious" that you just have to smile.This is one of them.You can use it on the grill or in a skillet.Flat bacon is only one of MANY uses.The handle is also old-fashioned.It dissipates heat pretty fast, so unless you're using it in an oven or on a closed grill, I haven't found any problem.

4-0 out of 5 stars works fine but the handle gets hot
This works great to flatten bacon.I chose this instead of the larger circular one and it fits better in more of my pans.The only question I have is why they didn't spend an extra 50 cents and put a wooden handle instead of a metal one which gets so hot one has to use an oven mitt just to pick up the press.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent bacon press
Nice addition to your kitchen if you are cooking bacon, which tend to curl up. The bottom is smooth, with no places for food to catch and hide.

Cavet, the first one I had, the spring on the handle broke. (the wire spring is welded to the wire handle, it must have been overheated as the wire spring broke loose from the handle. Not incapacitating it, as the spring just rolls in you hand, but annoying.) I wrote Lodge Mfg, and they sent a replacement which has worked fine ever since. Hence 4 stars instead of 5.

Requires some assembly, a screwdriver and a small wrench. Easy for any handyperson to do. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars My Experience with Zipka
I was very excited to have my Zipka at first, for all the reasons others mention here. Then I noted, as another reviewer did, that it seemed to eat batteries faster than advertised - but I still loved it. Then it began to misbehave. It began flashing and not turning on at various times - really cut my enjoyment. But still tolerable. Then one day I had it mounted on my bike helmet and it flipped off, falling to the ground and breaking in an unfixable way. I won't buy another - if they make one that's more robust and functions consistently, I'd be delighted. I'm going to try the Princeton Tec Aurora now. Hope this helps.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic For Camping And Many Other Uses!
I purchased my first Zipka as a stocking stuffer for my husband, HOPING he would use it.It gets used all the time!Taking out the trash, in the workshop, as a book light, around the house and of course Camping! My whole family has since purchased them.The battery lasts forever and its a great way to tend the fire or cook without having to set up a lantern or other light source.Its light weight and durable too.Even my small cousins have them and they work great!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow- lasts forever, great product!
This light never dies due to its LED technology.It is not extremely bright but definitely bright enough for illuminating your path at night.It is great for power outages or camping.I feel much safer walking or jogging at night in my neighborhood.Light-weight, very good attachment mechanism.This product is a major improvement compared to the standard head lamp, to the point that everybody should have one.It is a perfect gift in that it is (1) reasonable price, (2) usable by anybody, (3) sufficiently different that people are unlikely to already have it, (4) truly useful/safety feature as opposed to worthless junk that is most gifts.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great light for occasional use
I am a private pilot and carry this light in my flight bag.It has proven to be phenomenally useful.I highly recommend it for any situation where you need an occasional light (household use, in your car, boat, for camping, etc.) For portable, occasional use, this cannot be beat.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't hesitate
Since I have aquired this headlamp, it is always with me. It is powerfull and it is really worth the expense. The power of the beam is fantastic. Since power consumption is very low, the batteries last very long. I am working very often in theatres (being member of a thatrical amateur society) and quite a few backstage and lighting team members have purchased it. How was life before it? ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Minus 5 Degree Mummy Bag at a bargain price.
This bag is realy soft and warm. There is a nice little pocket inside near the top of the bag, enough room to put your wallet or something in like a flashlight. Comes with compression bag for easy storage and the total weight of the bag is only 5.5lbs. Very good deal for those on a budget. I couldn't be happier with the bag.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Product, a little tedious
I bought this product because I was expecting to use it as a blanket more than as an outdoors sleeping bag.

It's very warm, yet for my purposes, the tight space to keep your feet warm may be a little too small and the string locks really get in the way of your confort whether you use it as blanket or as an outdoors sleeping bag.

Overall I did enjoy it, because I was hoping to reduce not so warm and several blankets from my bed, leaving just an old, yet warm sleeping bag, and this very sleeping bag I purchased. ... Read more

About Columbia Sportswear
Founded in 1938, Columbia Sportswear Company has grown from a small family-owned hat distributor to one of the world's largest outerwear brands and the leading seller of skiwear in the United States. Columbia's extensive product line includes a wide variety of outerwear, sportswear, rugged footwear and accessories. Columbia specializes in developing innovative products that are functional yet stylish and offer great value. Eighty-year-old matriarch Gert Boyle, Chairman of the Board, and her son, Tim Boyle, President and CEO, lead the company. Columbia's history starts with Gert's parents, Paul and Marie Lamfrom, when they fled Germany in 1937. They bought a small hat distributorship in Portland, Oregon, and named it Columbia Hat Company, after the river bordering the city. Soon frustrated by poor deliveries from suppliers, the Lamfroms decided to start manufacturing products themselves. In 1948, Gert married college sweetheart Neal Boyle, who joined the family business and later took the helm of the growing company. When Neal suddenly died of a heart attack in 1970, Gert enlisted help from Tim, then a college senior. After that it wasn't long before business really started to take off. Columbia was one of the first companies to make jackets from waterproof/breathable fabric. They introduced the breakthrough technology called the Columbia Interchange System, in which a shell and liner combine for multiple wearing options. In the early 1980s, then 60 year-old Gert began her role as "Mother Boyle" in Columbia's successful and popular advertising campaign. In 1998 the company went public, and moved into a new era as a world leader in the active outdoor apparel industry. Today, Columbia Sportswear employs more than 1,800 people around the world and distributes and sells products in more than 50 countries and to more than 12,000 retailers internationally.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good quality, outdated tool selection
Victorinox makes fine products, and this model is lovely, classic, and durable. However, it is missing tools that you will probably want, such as scissors, while including things you rarely use. (Also, a blade that locks open is preferable for safety.) Pick another model and you (or your gift recipient) will be happier.

5-0 out of 5 stars Quality knife, lightweight for size
Attractive design with tough, durable red handle. I carried a Case Trapper forever and a couple of years ago started using a Victorinox Tinker. For its length and contents, it is relatively slim and very light. So light in fact you may think it wouldn't be as durable as it is.
This is my 2nd one, which I went out and bought immediately after I lost my first one, so I'm sold on it, there's really only one thing I don't like about it.
The phillips driver extends from the side, making it useless in many applications because it requires so much space to turn. The can opener blade has a slot tip that will work in a pinch in most phillips screws though. On this knife I have now, which I've used and admittedly misused several times a day for a couple of years, I've broken the tips off both blades and reground them, the can opener slot tip and the big slot tip, so alas, the knife is not indestructable.
-I have gone through a lot of knives in my lifetime.
BTW, the stainless steel blades sharpen better than most ss blades it seems, at least that is my experience.
I haven't noticed the keyring thing being a problem at all, actually I like it to be there.
I've found this knife to hold up well in extremely rough use compared to the much heavier Case Trapper, found it's slim width and light weight to carry well in my pants pocket and have been well pleased with the durability of this knife, considering how I've mistreated it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A simple and yet amazingly versitile and reliable knife!
The Tinker was the 1st Victorinox knife I got. I've had it for about 10 years now. It's got the scratches and wear marks that only a very used knife can have and yet functionally it is still in perfect shape. I've been able to keep the 2 blades razor sharp through the years with only occasional sharpening. The bottle opener and can opener double as tough flathead screwdrivers and the philips head screwdriver on the other side is solid as a rock. This knife has gotten me out of a jam many a time and is probably my most treasured item in my tool collection. A must have for the handy-man type!

4-0 out of 5 stars So you want Phillips screwdriver AND scissors?
I saw quite a few reviews here from people who love this model but more or less miss having the scissors.You may want to know that Victorinox makes (at least) 4 slightly different Tinker models: "Small Tinker", "Tinker", "Super Tinker", and "Deluxe Tinker".If the measurement information given above (3 1/4") is correct, then the model sold here is actually the "Small Tinker".The other 3 are full-size models (just 1/4" longer).Trivia aside, what I want to bring to your attention is that the "Super Tinker" model has all the same tools as the "Tinker" plus one - the nifty little scissors!If you're looking for the ideal model that has BOTH the Phillips screwdriver AND the scissors, go with the "Super Tinker" instead.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great all-around pocket knife
I have had three Tinkers over the years.The first one I liked best, as it was the smaller size and had a nice black handle.It is a great size to carry at all times, and forget about it until you need it.I did miss the scissors at first until I realized something.If you keep it sharp you don't really need scissors.you can use the large blade for everyday use, and just keep the small blade as a backup, always razor sharp.Another reviewer mentioned that you should remove the key ring.I agree wholeheartedly, and I went one step further.After you remove the key ring, grind down the nub that the key ring went through (with a bench grinder or Dremel grinding wheel) and it is so much smoother and fits in your pocket without poking your leg at all.The only disadvantage I can think of is that the plastic that the handles are made of are not as rugged as the rest of the knife.After carrying my first one for about 7 years and dropping it a few times, the handles loosened up and eventually fell off.Victorinox is making some newer models at a lower price point with red nylon handles.The handles are much more durable, but the Swiss cross is just painted on and looks very cheezy.My original, smaller Tinker had a philips screwdriver that was shaped to blend in to the rest of the shape.The newer ones are just round and not quite as nice.I might be ready for my fourth Tinker, hehehe.If they would just make one with the smaller body, with the rivted aluminum handles and managed to keep the toothpick and tweezers... ...

Sleep Well: Finding the Right Sleeping Bag
Sleeping bag technology has come a long way from the days of cowboy bedrolls. These days, there are a number of high-tech materials and designs available to keep you warm during the coldest outings. Here's a short list of things to keep in mind when you're shopping for a bag:

Buy for Cold
It's a safe bet that on at least one of your adventures, the nighttime temperature will drop unexpectedly. That's why it's smart to buy a bag that's rated for the lowest possible temperature you expect to face on your camping and backpacking trips. For summer trips, a bag rated at +35 degrees or higher will likely do the trick. If you like to camp in higher elevations in the summer, or if spring and fall outings are in your future, consider bags rated from +10 to +35. Winter adventurers should look for bags in the -10 to +10 range, while those on serious winter alpine climbs and expeditions will want a bag rated lower than -10.

Keep in mind that sleeping bag manufacturers' temperature ratings only estimate the minimum temperature at which the bag will provide warmth. Take these numbers with a grain of salt, as different folks generate different amounts of heat when they sleep. If you're the type who likes to pile on the covers even on warmer nights, go for a bag that's rated ten degrees colder. The opposite is true for "warm" sleepers--a 35-degree bag will probably work for you on a 25-degree night.

Goose or No Goose?
The most important component of any sleeping bag is its insulating material. Modern sleeping bags offer two choices: goose down or synthetic. While both materials have advantages and disadvantages, down bags are considered superior because of their phenomenal warmth-to-weight and warmth-to-bulk ratios. While providing great insulation, down is extremely compressible and light. There's a reason why geese can fly and stay warm through the winter! Down also boasts great long-term durability and will typically retain its insulating properties after years of use.

All of that said, there are many high-quality synthetic bags on the market and synthetic materials are getting better all the time. While a synthetic bag will weigh somewhat more than a down bag at an equivalent temperature rating, synthetic bags perform better when wet. (Yes, the Achilles heel of down is that it loses all insulating properties when wet.) If your trips take you to wet climates, you may want to consider a synthetic bag for this reason alone. Keep in mind, too, that many people are allergic to down--synthetic bags are non-allergenic. Finally, down is considerably more expensive than synthetic, which might tip the balance for adventurers on a budget.

Bags for All Shapes
Sleeping bags come in two basic shapes that reflect their intended use. Mummy-shaped bags offer the best warmth because they conform to the body's contours. This minimizes the amount of body heat the body must put out to maintain a constant temperature. Many mummy bags are offered in women-specific shapes and sizes, as well. Rectangular bags, while they do offer more room to toss and turn, are less thermally efficient because they contain more open air space. Also, they are typically heavier than mummy bags, and are generally not offered with down insulation, making them best suited for car camping or short backpacking trips.

Pad Yourself
No matter what kind of bag you choose, a sleeping pad is a required accessory. Not only do they provide much-needed comfort when sleeping on the ground, pads also offer crucial warmth for your backside, as the weight of your body compresses--and renders virtually useless--the sleeping bag insulation that lies beneath you.

2-0 out of 5 stars Comfortable, but...
Pros:
Comfortable.
The "sheet" thing is interesting.

Cons:
There's no way this thing measures 86" long. They must have stretched it to measure. I'm 6'4" and I thought this would be great - the main bag is less than 6' long and with the pillow attachment, it might be 6'8"

You can't combine 2 sleeping bags to make a larger one. For whatever reason, the decided to put the place where the zippers start in the middle of the bottom of the bag and combining the bags produces a lumpy mess.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent value!

Pepper spray enables you to defend yourself while keeping a safe distance from an attacker. A one second burst to the face will cause temporary blindness, choking, coughing, and nausea-bringing the attacker to his knees. The active ingredient in our spray is Oleoresin Capsicum (O.C.), commonly referred to as red pepper. When considering which pepper spray is most effective, one must consider the percentage of pepper being used and the heat rating of that pepper (measured in Scoville Heat Units or S.H.U.). All of our pepper sprays are two million S.H.U., which is the highest available. At 17% and two million S.H.U., this Street Wise pepper spray is the hottest, most powerful in the world. The potency of this spray enables it to bring down even the most aggressive assailants.

4-0 out of 5 stars Little Heater is a Big help!
This heater has a small footprint and doesn't take up much space.It is working great in our garage as a supplement to our electric heater.It is nice and toasty up close to it, and it warms our 2 car garage up slowly to a decent level to do woodworking.It is perfect because my second electric heater was tripping the circuit breaker whenever I used power tools.

The only thing to remember is to keep it away from the sawdust!I like it so much, we're buying another one, so we can ditch the other electric heater.(I'm tired of tripping on cords!)

2-0 out of 5 stars Reply about Lack of filter ruined my heater.
When I pulled my heater out to use it the pilot wouldn't light. I diagnosed my problem to be the regulator, not the control valve. The guy's statement about using a trap (filter) for 20lb tanks is incorrect.If what he said was true why isn't there a trap (filter) on every gas grill, outdoor heater, and any other appliance that normally uses a propane tank other than the 1lb tank? The reason for the trap (filter) is when the gas supply is delivered by iron pipe. Initially the pipe has oil inside it due to the manufacturing process and to prevent it from rusting before it is put into use. The viscosity of the oil is heavy so the trap (filter) collects this oil and later any scale that may occur from the inside surface of the pipe. Without the trap (filter) the oil or particles of scale could end up in the control valve preventing it from operating properly. If you use copper lines or a rubber gas line there isn't any need for a trap(filter).

4-0 out of 5 stars About filters....
The mention of filters that I saw was a recommedation for a TRAP, not a filter, as it was called. It is common in professionally installed propane appliances to have a trap. I haven't ever seen a trap used on a portable appliance. The trap is essentially a pipe "T" with a short section of pipe going down, terminated by a cap. The other side of the "T" goes up to the appliance.The trap allows chunks of debris fall into it; it is in no way a filter.

5-0 out of 5 stars to clear up the filter issue
I loved reading the reviews and yours especially Spyryl. You brought up some "common sense" replys. lol. But there is a type of "filter" that should be used with all propane fueled devices except ones that use the 1 lb. bottles. The bottles are already filtered. Propane can get contaminated when connecting and unconnecting. The filter is just a trap made with pipe just before it enters your unit. Instead of using a straight adapter to connect to your unit, use a tee and have a 1" pipe connect to an elbow and connect up to a 2" pipe pointing downwith a cap on the end. This allows contaminants to collect in the trap and you can take the cap off once a year, with the propane cut off, and clean it out. I have two wall mounted propane heaters and I have a filter on both. Just thought I would let you know there is a filter for propane in 5 lb. tanks and above. You just make it yourself really. Not one made up that I have seen. Again thanks to all for the replys. I am thinking about buying one of these heaters and the information helps.

Updated 1/5/04
You may be right in that the filter may not need to be used but if you can use it and it help I think it is a good idea to use one. But you are wrong that I am the other person that posted. This was my first post and this is my first update. I am just offering my opinions and did not ever state I was an LP expert. But this filter was recommend to me by an LP expert.

2-0 out of 5 stars Lack of filter ruined my heater /Parts no longer available
When I bought my "Buddy" MH9B 3 years ago there was no mention of having to use a fuel filter. This lack of information caused my heater to build up with oil from the 20lb tanks I used. The control valve (part # 73416) is shot and no longer available from Mr. Heater. All of the lines have oil residue in them and this heater no longer works. I paid $104.00 for a heater that worked well for only 3 years.Has anyone else had this problem? ... Read more

Selecting a Tent
Fortunately, there are all kinds of tents for weekend car campers, Everest expeditions, and everything in-between. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Expect the Worst
In general, it's wise to choose a tent that's designed to withstand the worst possible conditions you think you'll face. For instance, if you're a summer car camper in a region where weather is predictable, an inexpensive family or all purpose tent will likely do the trick--especially if a vehicle is nearby and you can make a mad dash for safety when bad weather swoops in! If you're a backpacker, alpine climber or bike explorer, or if you like to car camp in all seasons, you'll want to take something designed to handle more adversity.

Three- and Four-Season Tents
For summer, early fall and late spring outings, choose a three-season tent. At minimum, a quality three season tent will have lightweight aluminum poles, a reinforced floor, durable stitching, and a quality rain-fly. Some three-season tents offer more open-air netting and are more specifically designed for summer backpacking and other activities. Many premium tents will feature pre-sealed, taped seams and a silicone-impregnated rain-fly for enhanced waterproofness.

For winter camping or alpine travel, go with a four season model. Because they typically feature more durable fabric coatings, as well as more poles, four-season tents are designed to handle heavy snowfall and high winds without collapsing. Of course, four-season tents exact a weight penalty of about 10 to 20 percent in trade for their strength and durability. They also tend to be more expensive.

Domes, Tunnels and Sacks
Tents are broadly categorized into two types, freestanding, which can stand up on their own, and those that must be staked down in order to stand upright. Freestanding tents often incorporate a dome-shaped design, and most four-season tents are constructed this way because a dome leaves no flat spots on the outer surface where snow can collect. Domes are also inherently stronger than any other design. Meanwhile, many three-season models employ a modified dome configuration called a tunnel. These are still freestanding, but they require fewer poles than a dome, use less fabric, and typically have a rectangular floor-plan that offers less storage space than a dome configuration. Many one and two-person tents are not freestanding, but they make up for it by being more lightweight. Because they use fewer poles, they can also be quicker to set up than a dome.

Size Matters
Ask yourself how many people you'd like to fit in your fabric hotel now and in the future. For soloists and minimalists, check out one-person tents. If you're a mega-minimalist, or if you have your eye on doing some big wall climbs, a waterproof-breathable bivy sack is the ticket. Some bivy sacks feature poles and stake points to give you a little more breathing room. Also, if you don't need bug protection and you want to save weight, check out open-air shelters.

Families who plan on car camping in good weather can choose from a wide range of jumbo-sized tents that will accommodate all your little ones with room to spare. A wide range of capacities is also available for three- and four-season backpacking and expedition tents. Remember, though, the bigger the tent you buy, the heavier it will be, although it's easy to break up the tent components among several people in your group. It's also helpful to compare the volume and floor-space measurements of models you're considering.
