According to backcountry's help section:

"First, add the item or items to your cart. Then proceed to checkout (don’t worry—proceeding to checkout doesn’t make you obligated to purchase anything). Enter your address in the billing and shipping fields. Once you change the country, the page will show you the shipping charges."

The build quality on this thing is excellent, the scissors cut though cardboard and plastic packaging easily, and the knife is also super sharp. Some shortcomings: the nail file could be more aggressive, but on such as small tool its not that big of a deal; and the tweezers could be better. However, as previous reviews have said, you've always got this tool with you, and since it I hardly use the tweezers or nail file I find this tool very useful.

This watch is really nice, especially at this price. I got the silver w/black face and the pictures above don't really do the watch justice (check the nixon site for better pics). The watch also is a good size, not to big or uncomfortable. The quality seems very good. It's just a sweet looking casual watch.

Wow, these sho.. I mean sandals are super comfortable, wear them heel up or down. Sanuks are great as a slipper for around the house, or when camping, and they are heaven for your feet after they have been in climbing shoes for a hour. Mine do seem to get a bit of stink when I wear them barefoot, but antibacterial shoe spray gets rid of the smell easy. The comfort of these sandals easily negates this negative. I usually wear a size 7.5, I bought the 8's and they fit really well bare foot, but with socks on and the heel up they are a little tight. They are still new though, so hopefully they will stretch a little.

The materials used on both jackets are essentially the same - ripstop nylon, and both have Patagonia's 2.5-layer H2NO waterproof and breathable fabric, with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Both have hoods that roll up to stow (no zip). The fit is also similar.

Advantages of the Rainshadow:
- Lighter by 2.3 ounces (65.2g)
- Has DWR centre zipper (as opposed to the Torrentshell's internal/external storm flaps)
- Internal fabric has a raised pattern to enhance breathability and durability

Advantages of Torrentshell
- Cheaper by $60
- Stows in one of its zippered pockets

Basically the Rainshadow is slightly more technical, while the Torrentshell is a more basic rain jacket. It basically comes down to if you are willing to pay $60 extra for DWR zips and 2 ounces while sacrificing the stow away ability of the Torrentshell.

Hope this helps :)

Yes it will. Also, check the yakima website for more info, they have a neat program which selects the products that will fit on your vehicle, or click the "car rack configurator" link at the top of this page.

High intensity yellow or persimmon are the best for flat to low light.
This is what the oakley site says:
- Persimmon: Sport performance lens for flat to low light. Filters blue light to boost contrast and enhance depth perception in overcast or shaded conditions.
- High Intensity Yellow: Flat to very low light. Features an Iridium® coating for tuned contrast and reduced glare, perfect for extremely flat light or foggy conditions.
