You are a team of editors for Backcountry Trekker magazine. Thousands of subscribers anticipate your annual review and recommendations regarding the quality of new gear for backcountry travel. As part of your annual process, your team reviews and re-establishes its list of criteria for making recommendations in each category of equipment: backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, and stoves. This year you agree to make equipment recommendations appropriate for three-season travel in the Adirondacks.

Your selections must be currently available for purchase. Be prepared to share both your advertisement and the rationale behind your choices with others in the group.
