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.

Im looking at some second hand two person tents - and came across a MSR on Gumtree. It looks good except the MSR stencil brand is smudged across the tent.
Is this common? Seemed odd quality control for a company with their reputation. Im in no way making accusations against the seller who seems nice and legit - but maybe he bought on line in good faith and its a copy? Or am I just too cynical now a days...................... :shock:
Would love to hear if others have struck this so I can look to buy confidently.

I had a browse at a few things MSR I have. Without exception it's all quality stuff and in particular the logo is always prominent/clear/well formed on the item.

In this day and age of counterfeits it does sound a little dodgy.....
