Basin and Range Escalante 4 Tent Starting at: $193.17 This 4-person tent has a simple, yet effective design. A two-pole system meant easy set up as we arrived at our camp spot at 2AM after driving through the night. Three people and one dog occupied the tent for a few hours with room to spare for an additional person to squeeze in. Two roomy vestibules have plenty of room to keep gear organized and out of the elements, while keeping the interior of the tent tidy for card games while waiting out storms. Overall the Escalante 4 is a really solid option at this price point. Be sure to also check out the 2-person and 3-person versions of this tent.
Basin and Range Uinta Sleeping Bag: 30 Degree Synthetic Starting at: $78.17 The Uinta Sleeping Bag is the perfect car camping companion. This mummy style bag is sure to keep you warm and comfy when you want to venture out for a night under the stars. Testers appreciated the micro-fleece material in the head and shoulders area as well as in the foot box for an added touch of softness and comfort. The draft tube in the Uinta ensures no air will seep into the bag and ruin your REM cycle. The stuff sack has built-in compression straps to help pack the bag down even smaller if you want to venture into the backcountry. After a few nights use we had no issues with the zipper, which was a pleasant surprise as that is a common issue most sleeping bags face. For camping in moderate temperatures the Uinta really shines.
Basin and Range Current Quick Dry Pant Starting at: $40.46 These pants from Basin and Range are simple, but well thought out to create a go-to hiking and travel pant. A stretchy quick drying material gives you all-day comfort. The built-in adjustable belt keeps the pants where they need to be to keep you on the move. Testers’ favorite feature was the elastic draw cord at the ankle to keep the legs from slipping over sandals while lounging around camp. The Current Pants give you the styling to go straight from the trail to the bar without missing a beat. These pants are quickly becoming a favorite and are finding their way into our bag no matter the occasion.
