I have had these for a while now...It is the one thing I normally bring with me in any fall, winter, or spring trek...There is nothing that will ruin your trip quicker, than the bottom of your pants wet and sagging below your boot heels..causing a tripping hazard too... During milder winter weather, I just wear softshells and gaiters, and these have a great price point and work wonders
Took my backcountry nalgene up on a small summit to watch a British Columbia Sunset
I find TNF shoes made for thicker socks...thus a bit bigger, but if you have wide feet like myself. I would try and find some close to you to try on
I bought these I have to admit on the color alone.. But was not disappointed when i got them home..I have since worn them in all conditions, multiple days and have had snowshoes and crampons on them...A great boot.. I am anxiously awaiting my next pair
I was just saying to my wife that I needed another Nalgene water bottle, low and behold, I get one en gratis from the great folks at backcountry.com.
I had my previous bottle for about 5 years, and had probably held a 1000 liter of liquid.. If I had done a better job cleaning the last one, it would still be in circulation...Looking forward to using my bottle tomorrow..
I dont know guys... I can but alot of freezer bags for 35 dollars
Foot Width??? Looking for a EE at least...In a hard sole boot, it is imperative my feet are comfortable.. Any recommendations for one?
I am not a large man, and I was looking for a good day pack I could carry some snowshoes, crampons, clothes, and food in.. i chose this one, and I am not disappointed.
I did not realize it was a womens pack until I got it home, but what works...works.
Spacious and full of features, I am glad I have gotten this pack, and maybe have discovered a little on my feminine side
The night before I make a summit in winter
These crampons are great..Easy to put on, easy to take off, and do what they are supposed to...Hold you on the ice.. I have made two approaches in these over 5000 ft gain in various ice conditions, in some very unusually mild temps. they hold up to everything..
I have a size 11 boot, and the standard size is almost maxed, so if you have larger boots/feet. Plan on getting the extension bars.
Medium should do you just fine
They will be fine until they start to break in on the outside, I recommend spraying boots like this a few times in the first few weeks. I am in Ontario if that helps
I just tried a pair if these on the other day...the mens version, and the tread is deep and quite similar to my other salomon boots. I find them pretty stable in grip on everything but that infamous loose snow covered ice
I am originally from Labrador, and have spent a lot of time prancing around the woods there. I have also done multi day canoe trips over rugged and rocky terrain. I have a couple points for you.
1. You should always have two pairs of footwear, when you can. One wet one dry. you would be surprised how much better you feel with dry feet.
2. You are going to want something with a solid bottom also. The last thing you need is a foot strain when you are 7 days in. It is easy to do, I did it last year
To the best of my research on Norrona products, the vast majority seem to be manufactured in China
Green will block out anything green,, and red red. For skiing I would say you would be better off with red.
Womens packs are normally smaller in size, not always the volume, but the harness. I really recommend getting professionally fitted for a pack, then choosing one online.

Check the help link at top right, there is a whole list of shipping rules
most of the time when you see that price diff, it is past season colors or a clearance of a size.
