Casey's Bio

Let's be honest, nobody wants to know about me. They want to know about the gear!

These bags are great. Coupled with a carabiner they make for great additional storage in a tent or around camp and the multiple sizes come in quite handy when organizing smaller stuff in your pack. Also, they really don't get dirty which is nice. The only down side on these is their cost. The material is great, they're well made and I haven't found anything else out there that quite compares.

This little lamp is perfect for the tent and get's the job done if all you're looking to light up is a small patch on a table. It's super light and packs small as the description suggests. No complaints at all but it would be sweet if they added a light to the top as well so you could use it as a flashlight... it would be the perfect combo.

I don't have too much original information to express except that the housing is in fact tiltable even though the specs on backcountry say it is not. Other than that it is super bright, very light and after a couple uses it is second nature switching between bright/dim/strobe/red. It has quickly replaced all other headlamps!

what's the word on these? i'm not looking for a cold weather glove but i am looking for a decent cheap glove that i can stash and bring out if need be that can pack real small. Will these do the trick or are they just glorified cheap knit gloves that fall apart after 20 minutes?

From my experience, NW shoes run pretty true to size. I'm a size 10-10.5 US depending on the brand but my feet are more narrow than most so i decided to go with a 42.5 (=10 US. from the sizing chart) and they fit perfectly. I think you can be confident that the 44.5 will be the right size for you.

is more fun, but that's not really a fair fight! These socks are great, super light and they dry quickly! They also keep their stretch and feel longer than most socks i've ran and rode in! Warning, if you're planning on picking up a pair you might as well just buy a bunch and save on the shipping!

This is the perfect day pack whether you're strolling around campus or hiking through the woods! The laptop sleeve and back panel construction protect a notebook better than most backpacks and the main interior is large enough to stash all your books or plenty of gear and food. Best of all, i've been using this backpack for more than 3 years and it's still going strong!

Like most TNF products this backpack is well made and gets the job done. That said, in my opinion its more than worth the extra 30-40 bucks to pick up a pack like the recon or hotshot if you're set on a north face pack! Best piece of advice to consider when buying gear, spend the extra coin for something that is of better quality and you really like and will use for many, many years!

These puppies bark! Maybe that isn't clear enough? These shoes rock! The vents really let the air flow unlike many other 'vented' shoes out there and the northwave buckle ratchets up the feel like a champ. The shoe is stiff as a board but still comfortable. Like many of the other reviews, I would suggest you buy a liner to go with these, but that's kind of a no-brainer with cycling shoes. Bottom line, best shoes I've ridden in! You will not be disappointed!

I picked up this fleece about a month ago and forgot about most of my other ones. It's perfect during any sort of outdoor aerobic activity because of the generous sized pit zips. Its versatility makes it a great pick up. It's warm enough to use as a jacket when it's warm and is also fitted perfectly to wear under an outer layer. Also, who can complain about the price?
