I bought these in XL size and fit nicely, I typically wear 12.5 to 13 men's shoes. I love that they don't requre a strap across the arch and the zipper works well. The rubber soles are very slim and are conducive to use in a kayak. The sole wraps up over the heel, perfect for how your heels rest on the bottom of a boat. I also bought a pair of neoprene socks to wear underneath for extra-cold weather.

I've got the gore-tex version of these. The tongue is attached all the way up to the top two laces to dis-allow water from entry. The soles work great on all terrain (sometimes they are really slick on wet tile nearly biffed it afew times). Heavy duty contruction make these worth-while to me as my last two pairs of shoes (sketchers and north face) have had sidewall blow-outs.

This is the skeletonized version of the knife I've had in my pocket and used daily for the past 7 years. It opens easily with one hand only, and the steel is not too hard to resharpen if needed. The serrated section of the knife severs rope in one swipe, the drop point retains control when doing alot of cutting. Highly recommended.

This is a jacket that is completely adjustable while wearing it. Even the shoulder straps are easily adjusted, and all extra webbing is nicely hidden. It has finger warmers and a center zipper for cooler weather, or only buckle it when it is warm. There is a pocket for a hydration bladder in the back (sold separate) that holds just under 2 L of water. I actually bought a cheapo bladder from wally world that worked just fine. This is a comfortable jacket that sits low on the torso but won't interfere with your backrest. I had no problems performing a cowboy scramble with this jacket on. BTW...I paid more for it than what it is going for here....:(
