Good Gaiters
5 5

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

Awesome Thanks Backcountry
5 5

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..

Good pack for men too
5 5

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

Great Price point/ Great product
4 5

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.

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
