I bought this shell for my girlfriend to wear over her Siphon wool hoody, the combination of those two jackets is absolutely wonderful, and this shell is top notch. I've waited a few months to review this because I wanted to see how it performed for her in different types of weather, to say the least it has been flawless - she has had nothing but wonderful things to say about this shell. The fit is true to the sizing charts and the quality is top notch.

I've had this backpack for a quite a while now and have been a bit disappointed by it. I will say that it does work great as a school backpack or for overnight traveling. Although it does not have a laptop sleeve built in, a 17 inch notebook will fit (a bit snug - but it will fit) and it does have ample room for a days coursework as well.

It is however far from being a good hiking pack. It lacks a sternum strap, hydration compatibility, the shoulder straps are not especially comfortable and the waist belt is practically worthless. The back of the pack is not well padded by any means as well so lugging books around campus on a hot day is made even less enjoyable by the back sweat that you will form.

All in all, this is a good school and travel backpack but far from being trail worthy in my opinion.

You can see my previous review about the first pair I bought. I finally had to replace them (had them for the better part of a decade) and I am happy to say they are still the great boot I bought way back in the day. Great support, relatively light, good waterproofing, and pretty breathable as well. There are a couple small changes between my old pair and this new pair - including a second lace cleat on the upper portion of the boot, it's also taller than my previous pair, and this new pair also has a bit nicer insole with a little more arch support to it.

They were a bit stiff at first, but after a few days wearing them all day, they've broken in pretty well. I'll be taking them for a couple day hikes this weekend at and around Devil's Lake (Baraboo WI). Looking forward to see how they do.

I've had a pair of these for a long time. Used 'em and abused 'em for everything, from camping, deer hunting in Wisconsin, to just walking the dog. I've found them rather light for the size (12) and very comfortable right out of the box. Waterproofing was great for a long time, they started to leak within the past couple months, I just shot them up with the waterproofing spray and they have been fine ever since.
