A great start for new Scouts - and an affordable upgrade/replacement for the rest of us

I set out last year to find a new quality backpack, tent, and sleeping bag for my kids as our scout troop is going to shift focus from car camping to backpacking in the coming months. Recently retired from the Army with experience in Scouting, I had a fair collection of gear - but much of it was starting to wear out and I needed a fresh start myself. Focusing on mid-range backpacking gear, I had narrowed it down to about $1000-1200 for each of us - until I saw an advertisement for The Dean and thought immediately it was a brilliant idea (everything has a place, and it is all easily accessible). Then I saw the bundle.

I looked at the individual components and tried searching for some testimonials from others; though there wasn't a lot out there, what I could observe online seemed like good quality - and the deal was impossible to beat. I was able to upgrade and remove items to make sure each of us got exactly what we needed and purchased three bundles for Christmas. Scott and his company were exceptionally responsive, went out of their way to make sure we were happy with everything, and quickly resolved the issue when I found one of the small divider flaps missing on the inside of one of the backpacks. The boys were excited with each new piece they unwrapped and packed away, and everything had been set up at least twice inside the house before we took them camping.

Our first camping trip began with a steady moderate rain for several hours followed by a storm with wind gusting to 40 miles per hour. Over the weekend, the temperature dropped into the 20's (F) and finished with snow. Through it all, the tent performed admirably, keeping me and my items warm and dry. In fact, everything performed as well or better than I expected - especially considering the weight and volume. My initial observations are that this entire bundle is an exceptional value, and I spent much of that camp letting others see how well things are put together and recommending NearZero to them. This is precisely the quality of gear I would recommend for any Scout, and the bundle and other support to Scouts from Near Zero helps keep a Scout Thrifty.

Unique all-in-one system

I got to test this pack at an event over the summer and was impressed by the overall system design and how well thought-out it was. I'm actually kind of surprised more companies haven't offered something like this for folks that don't want to buy ~25 different items just to go backpacking. I kind of expected a few items where corners were cut, but everything from the stove to the pad and sleeping bag were great all-around choices.

Everything you need to get out there

I used this system when I traveled to Arizona for a backpacking trip. Has everything you need and the components are high quality. The tent was light and easy to assemble (even in the dark); the sleeping bag was super light and warm, and the pad was comfortable and had good insulation. I would buy these even as separate items. If I were a guide, I would have these for clients, for sure. Also great for getting into backpacking. Everything is here, it is all good, and you don't have to scour the internet and watch YouTube videos to find the best of every component. Just grab and go.
