First thing is Lifetime Warranty. Have several pair and did buy my wife some last year and Trekking in Nepal the sole of hers came off. Went to the old factory in Paonia and what happened was they had a bad shipment of glue. Fixed them for free mailed them to me for free. Chaco will make it right period. They did move main factory to China which is sad but still the best sandal made.

I've had the Nixon Scout watch for 3 years now and I can say this is one tough watch. I have the black band with stainless bezel and black face/white #'s.I wear it everyday work play the raised bezel keeps the crystal from getting scratched. Battery lasted over 2 years and was easily replaced. Not waterproof but I have been swimming surfing in the natural hot springs and no problems for me. Best watch with out all the fuss. Simple clean and looks good with everything.

I used this pack size large on a 21 day trek in Nepal around Makalu I packed my down bag, Thermarest, sometimes the tent, snack food, chaco's,extra set of clothes, hygiene stuff,first aid, 100 oz. pladder, MSR filter, and other gear headlamp,knife, etc. If you are a serious about going light then this is the pack use compression sacks for everything u can and it will hold all you need. Even used it as my carry on the whole trip. As far as comfort on long hauls it is great. Began the 21 days with a 37lb. load sometimes 40lbs. when carried tent by the end had 35lbs. and was awesome no matter the load. I will add that even though you need a rain cover I got dumped on for about 2 hours before I stopped to dig my cover out (keep it handy) and only a few things got damp. Hip pockets are real handy, should have kept my cover in one. Only down side is loading and unloading. I would add a bottom load zip as well then I would call it near perfect. Use it all the time on short hikes in CO perfect. Osprey makes some tough packs this is my Favorite.

I not gonna disagree with mike at all, but its always good to go up on size for two reasons: 1. you want a little clearance from the tip of your toe to the edge of the sandal so you don't slam your toe every time the sandal takes a hit and 2. you want a little give on the back (about 2 fingers room)cinch. I have the same size foot (10 1/2) and my 11s are perfect.I'll add that if your foot is wide check out the wide width I wear a 10 in about every shoe or boot I own and wore the Z2's or what was called the Tokay for ten years(size 10) but the last year found that the 9 Wide is a perfect fit still have my originals after wearing them all over Asia trekking and Colorado. Best Sandals Ever Made.

My wife tears through boots with a serious case of over pronation so finding boots with enough support can be a challenge until she tried these. Bought for 3 months of trekking in Asia the longest stretch was 21 days straight. Amazing support Flawless waterproofing. As far as the support after almost 2 years she still treks the western slopes of CO weekly. Best piece of footwear she owns.
