Will it fit onto MSR bag cap?
Climber who stuck in Florida and now either jumps from a plane or dives in Florida water filled underground.
Will it fit onto MSR bag cap?
Anybody used it? Is it self-achoring under an applied load on ice?
Need some updated info. Does this $149.95 include any subscription plans? Did anybody ever use this in Asia "yellow" zone where it says "96% TO 99% PROBABILITY OF SUCCESSFULLY SENDING A SINGLE MESSAGE WITHIN 20 MINUTES." Does that claim match the reality?
Huerfano creek valley, Colorado. Night was windy and cold so besides unlucky cook-on-duty the rest of the family is still half inside under the outer shell where enough room for gear, boots, four heads and that sticky spill morning coffee.
What is max weight for load? what is the material of roller axis: alloy or steel? I'm questioning this to find out how good it would be on long drops such as longer than 200 feet w/out rebelays, would it overheat and cause aluminum to change characteristics and alloy axis could be a problem.
Ceramic pre-filter does very important job if you are melting snow in summer or take water from glacier moraine runs - it traps sediment. It gets clogged pretty fast but that is how much mud it stops! I could not believe all that mud I just have used to drink before. Another awesome thing is that it disinfects the water so you could skip sometimes the boiling part when you don't have a time or room for a stove in your pack. Ability to pump water from under a rock is priceless too http://www.flickr.com/photos/ary-cave/4832383285/
I had to return first pair and get a size up from what I usually wear. I use it now for over a month crossing on Florida trails. Unfortunately shoes still make a squeaky sound (I hope it will finally wear and squeaking stops) and it is a problem for me sneaking from house on weekend morning. Grip, light weight and fit is very very good. I personally would prefer camo style but they only come in screaming palettes so I have to live with it. The mesh is not as easy breathing as it was in my worn to the ground TNF so if I would choose shoe now I would go for TNF.
Reg. "Manufacturer Warranty: Lifetime". Having durability issues before with my TNF trail runners (not from BackCountry). I would like to ask:
- if pieces started to peel off from sole and shoe nose past a year of use would TNF replace it?
- what is the replacement procedure (if any) if TNF product was purchased at BC
doesn't slip, lightweight, durable, easy to deploy and store, soft and warm (while I only used it on rock not snow).
2010 edition is as great as its predecessor. I used it during 2 week journey in CO. We had nights w/wind blasting at 50mph and temps below freeze. My wife kept bogging me "what if tent flies?" but I just slept thru it while the top of the dome was touching our sleeping bags at times of hard gusts. I would think however about getting extra (sold separately) set of alu tubes for wind re-enforcement. Awesome tent.
Very comfortable and light. I use it riding MTB and caving. Much lighter than other bike helmets. Kinda expensive though.
So far works for me 2 weeks. I had no problem w/using it. Few extra rubber bands will help to prevent rattling and sliding along bars. I would recommend to get a long secure cable and a separate weather resistant lock w/dial code for it. IMHO auxilary pin-lock that thule suggests will be trashed by road dirt and you won;'t be able to stick the key in.
I used this for 5 yrs. This was a 4th occasional dunk. Kayak tipped over in ocean. It is hard to tell how deep it went but dot deeper than 1m as duffle bag was attached to the vessel. The damage affected only the display because the picture still appears once in a while. Don't know if it is worth of a repair. Otherwise it was a great navigation instrument and it took a lot of abuse. RIP. Sometimes it was very slow to obtain a connection w/sats. Display could be brighter and larger. Lanyard is flimzy - needs more heavy duty way of clipping it of, perhaps w/snap bolt. Looking for a better replacement now.
Does it come w/basic maps on North America? Can I load a mapquest maps in it? What if i drop it in an ocean water?
Very convenient - fits in a pocket, lightweight. Visibility is not bad. The net however bothers when not in use - there is no way to fold it while using a hat as for a sun protection only. It also gets caught on scrub but the mesh nylon is pretty strong - i didn't have any holes so far. I'm sensitive to bug bites so it helps me a lot to explore Florida swamps.
