These bags look like they might be a decent replacement/add to my duluth pack/BWCA portaging collection - waterproof enough to handle some rain, maybe even get dropped or set down in shallow water, and back-packable, although not for long or technical hikes. Hard to tell from the pics, anyone who has set eyes and hands on the real deal got anything to say about that potential use?

I have three pairs, and wear them everywhere, with everything. Yard work to (casual) weddings, so does the hubby. They are comfy and cute. The church-key is so well placed it never digs into floors/ground, safe enough for boat decks. I would also like to point out to all the skeptics that the bottle opener only touches the bottle cap, not the bottle. So shake your shoe off, open that tasty non-twist off, and drink on!

I love this shirt, fits well, long enough to tuck in and stay, thumb holes don't bind, super warm, often even alone. HOWEVER, maybe because I wear it so much, the fabric has not stood up well to the use. The cuffs on both sides are pretty trashed after one season, left much worse than the right (a girls gotta know the time, and it does not fit under the watch) as well as in front where it appears to have suffered from contact with the zipper and buttons on my snowboard pants, etc. Thus, is no longer a candidate for wearing after i get done. Since the runs (think pantyhose) in the cuffs and midsection don't really affect the function as a baselayer, this will not be my last, but I hope they can beef up the fibers to, well, last through the season.

Got this for a recent 4 day trip to the BWCAW (Late Aug08) - worked great, even when we got 2.5 inches in one night. I did not find the hood to be too small, even while wearing glasses and a headlamp, but then I have a pretty small head. Packs up in about half of the space available in the pocket/pouch (left pocket) with a nice hang loop and zipper tab on the inside to use while packed. The sizing was great and not boxy nor overly skinny, fitting nice and looking nice at the same time it has enough room to layer a fleece underneath withough feeling stuffed in, which allows you to use it as a do-it-all shell instead of packing another coat. My one and only complaint is that on the XL, the velcro straps to hold the cuffs tight do not get small enough to fit my medium frame - every time I went to adjust ropes on the tarps, I got a stream of water running from my wrists to my elbow - inside the coat.
