I enjoy nothing more than getting outside with my gorgeous wife and idiot dog. We love walking, hiking, camping, biking, fishing, hunting, and just about anything else.

I love these bottoms. I used them for hiking/packing or even hunting. The 200 weight is great for active pursuits in cold temps or more stagnant hobbies with cool temps. They couldn't be more comfortable.

Sizing: A lot of people have mentioned that they run a size small, but I'd disagree. I'm 6' and a lean 200, and they fit nice a snug. These aren't meant to be pants, they're a long UNDERWEAR. They're supposed to be skin-tight, but not constrictive, to go underneath everything else. They're bomber and I'd recommend them to anyone.

These things are great, lightweight, and......good for bait?.... I use this thing all of the time. They can get a little dented up, but that adds to the character, and they never retain flavor. I only have 2 problems with them: first, they can sweat quite a bit, which can be annoying for off-the-trail use, and second, the mouth isn't wide enough for ice. Other than that, it's a great bottle for anything.

I looooove my Vector. Never had any problems with it and have had tons of compliments. I agree with Eric M.'s review though. If one is spending significant time on the trail, you should probably rely on more than a watch--er, "wristop computer." That being said, The functions are great, useful, and not that difficult with a little practice. (If you complain that your watch has too many functions, then get a simpler watch!) It's not hard if you read the manual. Certainly a great backup at the very least, and a great piece of equipment all around.

I'm addicted to this stuff. Great company and a great product. It does the job and gives your lips a nice tingling sensation. Also, it doesn't create the Catch-22 of using/needing like Carmex does. The Hand Salve is amazing stuff too for those of us who work/play outside and get dried, cracked hands & knuckles.

I love this pad. You can sleep ANYwhere with this thing! My buds are continually amazed at how much nicer mine is and the fact that it rolls up almost as small as their pads. I should've done more research before buying it though. Trying to save oz I bought this one instead of the insulated and froze my butt off on Weekend on the Buffalo River (AR). If you're going to be using this in colder temps, I'd really recommend bringing along a silk blanket or sleeve. This thing is light, super comfy, and packs well. Really nice outfit B.A. has going on.

THE sandal. Period. The sandals go anywhere and everywhere 365. Love 'em. They run true to size, come in wide sizes, a million different colors, and you can just throw them in the washing machine, etc., etc., etc. Not to mention they last forever, and their customer service is dynamite. I recently had a 2-year-old pair's sole start to separate, so I called Chaco. They told me to send them in for a free repair, so I got them completely resoled for $0 (including shipping). THAT's customer service.

I LOVE my encampment, and it's been so good to me. I'm a restless sleeper and the sleeve system and roomy back are great.

However, the roominess can keep you colder (more space that you have to heat), and if you don't get the insulated pad, the bag WILL NOT keep you warm down to its 15 degree rating. (This can be remedied with a silk blanket though.)
