Dustin Kimball's Bio

If there's one thing in this world I love more than being outdoors, it's new gear. Tech clothing, backpacks, stoves, water purifiers, kayaks, snowshoes, spoons, if backcountry.com has it, I want it.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size

Snagged the Electro Coral Orange for my girlfriend on SAC for a decent price. Was pretty unhappy with it when it got here. Much less Coral colors and much more Electro-Crossing-Guard-Orange. Also around the wrists, hood, and pockets is a purple band. See my attached photo. She didnt care for it either, we returned it. I hate false advertising. ///////Update, the new photo they added after my review is true to its design, that wasnt there previously.

Size down: Unfortunately its to late, as they are all out of smaller sizes. I ordered a medium as suggested by their size chart, also because thats all ive ever purchased in the last 15 years, Medium in everything. I ordered my medium Lenny and was pretty excited to try it on. Its freakin huge. Sleeves go right to my finger tips, and i can easily put on my 800fill marmot mountain down, under it. More and more "outdoor" companies seem to be catering towards the general, every growing, american public; instead of their long loyal outdoor enthusiast consumers. I can no longer comfortably fit into the now boxy Marmot, OR, TNF, MH, etc. Its frustrating. Sorry, venting. Im 5'10" ~155lbs

Otherwise it seems like itd be a great softshell, especially for the current sub $100 price tag.

This is a fantastic lantern. I grew up with the classic Coleman Kerosene Lanterns. This is such a great alternative to the old Colemans. I expected this lantern to by much much smaller than it is, its the same size as the classic Kerosene lanterns. The fact that it packs into itself is great, it doesn't make it a good size for backpacking, but its nice to protect the globe while transporting it. The Instastart feature is great, works instantly every time. Another great feature are the Insta-Clip #95 Tube Mantles, they are sooo easy to install compared to the old ones where you have to tie them on by hand. So if you are looking for a lantern for backpacking, keep looking, but for around camp, or to keep in the truck, this is the one for you.

We all know in the below freezing temperatures it is almost impossible to keep that line from freezing, this will definitely help, but not stop the inevitable. While a bit pricey for something so simple, if you have the extra $15 and want a little help in the winter, get it. Otherwise blowing into the bite valve until the water in the tube is all resting in the Camelbak reservoir, works equally as well..and its free.

The bad reviewers mostly are saying how good it worked at first, how fast and effective it is. But then say the next day how slow it is..I wonder if they read the directions or if theirs really were defective. This small filter is suppose to be 'back flushed' every 8 liters, that's very often, especially these people saying they used it for groups or 3-12. this shows how to do it, for those you already own and haven't read the directions properly.

for those whose really 'sucks' that's a bummer.

Well if you already have the Katadyn and need a replacement ceramic filter, there you go. Ive never had problems with my getting 'gunked up', since the pre-filter on the end of the inlet tube usually helps keep most of it out, but the ceramic disc is great for murky water non-the-less.
