Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I originally bought one a few years back and it is still going strong. It keeps beverages cold for hours, even days. There was this one time I was in southern utah on a backpacking trip. I filled the Growler with a bunch of ice and water when I left my house in Salt Lake. I left the growler in my car for 2 days and came back to a growler with Ice cold water in it. It was a wonderful treat at the end of a hot trip.

Bought another for a present and they love it!

This thing is awesome. It will keep your beer/soda cold from the first drink to the last even if it takes you hours to finish one beer. It is a pricey sucker so don't let your friends walk off with it.

I bought one for myself and a bunch more for gifts. Everyone loves theirs.

Best climbing shoes for everything!! Seriously these things are super versatile with a slight downturn but still forgiving enough to smear on slabs too. They DO STRETCH. Plan for roughly a half size of stretch- so I think half a size down from your street shoe will be perfect. They will feel tight and a little uncomfortable at first but after about 10 pitches or so you will start to have them broken in. I've climbed about 100 pitches in mine and I sized down 1/2 size from my street shoe. At first they were uncomfortably tight. From pitches 10 to about 80 they felt perfect, and now honestly they seem like they might be a tad bit big. It seems like they have stretched even a bit more than I was expecting. Not sure if I would go down another half size but it could be possible...

Best shoes out there though- seriously you will love them!!!!

Gear loft is a perfect fit. It stays nice and high and out of the way. Pockets seem big enough to hold a lot of extras, and weighs nothing and doesn't add much to the pack size. I have never owned a gear loft before so I am excited to not search for all my little items under the explosion that used to be my bag. There are also 2 pockets that are light diffusers, you can stick a headlamp in these pockets and it will spread out the light to fill up the whole tent.

Fit: True to size
Size Purchased: 8.5

These things are awesome. Sizing is spot on. These fit very similar to the Classic vans. Vans took their classic waffle grip sole and reversed it to give you more traction in the snow and on the ice. I recently did a 2 hour hike on them and my feet stayed dry the entire time. I cannot be any happier with these boots. The colors are awesome too. I got the Black/Rosin color and they are like a military green with black and I get compliments on them everyday.

These boots are very comfortable. I got the liner custom molded and these things felt great right out of the box. I got these for touring and all around boot and initially they seem awesome.

I would size up half a size. I wear an 8.5 in street shoe and the 9's in these boots are snug.

I have a few pairs of Axiom Jeans which are a regular fit. These are a slimmer fit and are pretty stretchy. I have been climbing and hiking in these for hours and they haven't restricted my movement at all and still super comfortable at the end of the day. These aren't super skinny but just the right amount. Can't get enough of these. I also love that these come in 30in Inseam which is awesome.

Nemo made this cool addition for their tent. It is like having a soft carpet covering the whole bottom of your tent. I haven't used this item yet but I am really excited to. It just snaps into each corner on the inside of the tent for easy installation and can be taken out just as quickly if you need to clean it.

Is this needed for your Ultralight Backpacking tent, probably not. But it's a nice addition and will definitely be nice to roll out of bed on a chilly morning. It has a soft suede feeling which will be nice in the wilderness.

Pretty Awesome!

These shin/knee guards are killer. They have great protection and look rad. Now I don't mountain bike and use them while flying a parachute down a mountain. They do a great job protecting my legs when I kick bushes at 35mph. I even riveted a gopro mount into the knee for some sick shots. All in all a great piece of gear at an awesome price. They don't seem to move much at all which is great. I only have one issue with them. (Photo Attached) The way the straps connects on it is just a plastic clip. I just know this clip is going to break in the future, it just seems like it is poorly engineered. Let me say it is pretty beefy but once that clip breaks you will have to buy new shin guards because they will no longer stay on. You can however set them how you like them and then just slip them on similar to a soccer shin guard.

I love 3/4 shorts or Shpants! Norrona is known for their bright outrageous colors and they did not disappoint with these shorts. They are pretty durable and have a gripped waist so they don't move at all while riding. They come with a high back waist as well so your jersey or shirt doesn't ride up and expose your back. The one thing that bothers me is the pockets are kind of strange if you are using them for general use. The top front pockets are very shallow and kind of silly in my opinion. Not sure what they were trying to accomplish, I'm sure they had their reasons however I just use them for casual use and some hiking.

If you are like me and always lose your sunglasses then these are for you. You cannot find a better pair of sunglasses out there for the price. They come in a ton of awesome colors and are pretty comfortable. I haven't noticed any eye fatigue or any discomfort after hours of use. Definitely a great pair of glasses and if you break them or lose them who cares but another pair, they are cheaper then buying lunch.

Stance is the Bomb!
I love their socks and am always buying more. Then they announced that they were going to make underwear and I was pretty excited to see what they were going to come out with. Let me just say they blew my expectations out of the water. Super soft and comfortable. They are some of my favorite boxer briefs that I own. From my initial use they seem pretty Durable as well. I keep catching myself buying more.

These are rad and super easy. I have a pair of ENO slap straps which are easy as well. The thing I like about these Grand Trunk straps are they compact much more efficiently. These are a no brainer addition to your hammock. Super easy to hook up your hammock anywhere.

This hammock is so easy and rad. I have used this thing on Lightweight backpacking trips when I am not expecting any weather. It is an awesome substitute for a tent when you want to shave weight and carry less. I have rigged this up everywhere from a sunny beach in Thailand to the dusty playground of Burning Man. It never disappoints. The two person version is awesome. It has plenty of room for two people, one person and a dog, one person and your gear. Plenty of room for whatever you want to do.

No more slipping and sliding and getting embarrassed in front of your friends. If you don't need full blown crampons these things will do the job. I got these because I am running down hills quickly and that can get really hard when it gets slippery. These will restore your faith in your footing when you know the ground isn't your friend.
