Sharon loved her Osprey 46 pack. She gives it 5 out of 5 points.
She also tested a Cascade Designs Neo Air mattress. Extremely comfortable. She gives it 5 out of 5 points.
Clif Bars and Clif Shot Bloks contain brown rice syrup which provides extra energy when you need a boost. I give them 5 out of 5 points.
Vibram Five Fingers footwear worked well for backpacking except when there were sharp stones, sharp pebbles or snow. They made excellent camp shoes. I give them 3 out of 5 points for backpacking, because there were a lot of sharp stones.
Timex Expedition WS4 altimeter watch - 4 out of 5 points.
Tech O Traileader altimeter watch - this watch also has a pedometer (accelerometer) built in - 4 out of 5 points.
Backpackers Pantry freeze dry foods - they have an especially good selection of vegetarian foods. I give them 4 out of 5 points.
