Really cool ultralight pack that doubles as a compression stuff sack for your sleeping bag. Stuff your sleeping bag in the Kompressor, throw it in your backpack and use the Kompressor for day hikes from camp. Or use the Kompressor as an ultralight day pack. Foam back panel turns into a nice seat at lunch. Gets more use than I thought. Take it to the gym or market on my bike, too.

That's who Aeolos is. This tent is super sturdy and roomy for it's weight. Lots of head space and plenty long for me at 6'0 and plenty wide for 2 adults. Sleeves make set up easy for 1 person and the clips are easy to attach. Lots of mesh and fly vents you can access from inside the tent keep it cool. One big vestibule and a second storage space gives you room to keep your stuff by your door. Fly clips into place. Poles are light and strong. Great tent if you want one strong enough to take higher in the mountains when it might snow and light enough to carry on your own and fits 2 adults comfortably.

I have about 6 sleeping bags and this is my favorite. I take it to the desert year round, spring/summer/fall trips in the mountains, hut trips in winter and in my car as an emergency bag in winter. Sleep comfortably at 30 and have used it on colder nights wearing clothes without trouble sleeping. I'm 6'0 and fit into the regular. Long would give a little more wiggle room and width but I like the smaller size and lighter weight of the regular. This bag has been stuffed and unstuffed countless times and still has tons of loft. Marmot is the only company that certifies fill power and the quality shows on the Helium. Full zip is key on an ultralight. Best ultralight bag out there.

Great jacket for the money. Hood is adjustable and fits great. I'm 6'0 160 and the medium is the right size. Packs into chest pocket so easy to clip to a pack or bike seat. Big pockets and nice closures for waist and wrists. Super light and looks good. Plenty waterproof for rain storms. Throw it in the dryer on med heat for 20 minutes when wet to keep the water repellent finish working.

These are great. Never had sandals with this much support before. Keep my feet relaxed after runs or bike rides. I'm a 10.0 and bought the same size. Fit is great because they mold while you wear them and they have a metatarsal support pad, deep heel and lots of arch support. Haven't found another sandal with the met pad and it's my favorite feature. Keeps your toes from gripping the sandal and slipping when you walk. No more flip flop sound. These aren't cheapo casual flips. You get the same support as a footbed and the comfort of a sandal. Awesome product.

Lightest perfromance 4 buckle mountaineering boot I've tried on. Great fit. Tight around instep and heel. Liner is light and warm. Best when thermofit by bootfitter. Skiing performance is phenomenal. Skiing on Coombas with dynafit bindings and it's plenty stiff for a 100mm+ waisted alpine board. Bottomless feel to the flex. Walk mode easy to open and lots of mobility in the cuff. Full strides save steps and energy on the up.

Awesome fit and much more performance than any other Dynafit boot that I've skied. If you're looking to drive a big ski with a Dynafit set up, this is the way to go. Liner is stiffer than other Garmont's and still thermoformable and the zeppa is nice for grinding and adjusting your stance. The zeppa also adds a little cush and warmth. No other AT boot that I've seen has one. This boots brings Dynafit to a new level of performance.
