Great pair of lightweight polarized sunglasses at a good price. They are very small and thus fantastic for the small faces and tiny heads. My only gripe is the tightness or the fit above the ears. They narrow quite a bit thus they stay on the head securely and are great for sports, but after an hour of straight wearing you feel the pressue. Overall these are an excellent choice for an inexpensive pair of polarized light weight glasses designed for the narrow faced and tiny headed.
The combo pack is worth the money. These bags are fantastic for keeping your junks dry. Boating, kayaking, rain, whatever these are clutch. I use the smallest one most often as it rather large, but if you have a bigger load or your friends try to get in on your dryness the big one is money. The compression roll down and air valve system is superb for cutting down on excess bulk. I highly recommend if you need your stuff dry.
While it's not a designated dry bag, it is very water resistant. Also it is durable, but not ultra durable. This is a great multi purpose duffel, but not for critical gear in the backcountry. Casual use around town and small trips it's the perfect bag. I use this on weekend trips to friends places to store clothes, beach trips, and really anything where i need to cram random stuff into a bag for a few days. I have the Large and it is mighty big. Holds shoes, towels, shirts, pants, frisbee, flashlights, etc.. no problem. A great bag, just make sure you know what to use it for.
Just got these recently and the complaints about the length are what motivated to buy them. Being 5'8 with a normal size torso and shorter legs, most shorts end up looking like capris on me. These fit great. In fact they are even a little long when they slide down a bit. They come to the bottom of my knees and any lower would be silly looking. As far as waist goes the Mediumm is just right. No need for a belt but if I want one I can add it. These also can double as board shorts if you forgot your pair or you just like the style better than aggressive floral prints... we're not 19 forever.. A great short if you're a little on the shorter side and don't like shorts around mid-shin.
Is the "Phantom" the gray color or the darker more black color???
13.6 ounces not 2.45 lbs!
Dusty, this pack sounds like a great fit for your 10-14 day trek. AT weather conditions this time of year are pretty awesome, but storms pop out of nowhere so detachable rain cover is a big bonus. These packs have lots of adjustments so you should be able to get a pretty solid fit. However the frame is set to accomadate all sizes so the straps will require some personal tweaks for sure. A safe bet for a good pack.
I have a small head so finding a hat that looks great is tough. The short brim makes the hit and the materials are top notch. I got a medium and it fits pretty well, a little big at first, but after a short time in the dryer this thing molded to my head and it's a good looking 'classy' hat look. If you could wear a hat to dinner this is the one you'd want. Great for cold weather since it's wool it does get pretty toasty.
Antoni, no no no on diving, this light wouldn't even survive a shower! Diving lights are actually a special beast that need to be designated for diving. A "waterproof" or "weatherproof" light does not mean dive rated. Pressure at depth makes a big difference and a great waterproof light will still not be sufficient for any real diving. Static tests (no movement or operation of switches) are used to rate lights on water resistance, but diving is not a static activity. My email address is on my profile page if you or anyone wants more information.
Angie, incandescent bulbs burn out very easily. The filament doesn't always appeary broken like you might see in an old light bulb. If you changed the batteries and it doesn't work there are only a few explantions.
1) batteries are in the wrong orientation, double check
2) bulb is burned out, need a new bulb
3) electrical issue, water or corrosive battery acid has damaged circuitry, flashlight is now garbage
My suggestion, the bulb is not worth the money to replace it. Buy a new LED light that has at least 3 watts and you will never need to replace a bulb again. Additionally, you will have increased battery life and it will be much lighter and smaller.
Greg, don't buy this light or a Maglite. They are really not good lights. Maglite is better because they've moved on to LED technology, but still they are using reputation and not technology. As far as "7 watt" don't let that fool you into being impressed. 7 watt incandescent is very weak. 7 watt LED would be very very bright. If you want a good security light I have many suggestions for you none of which are available through BC. You or anyone else can email me personally if you want information or suggestions on lights. I want to make it clear I do not sell flashlights! It's just a hobby I take very seriously and don't want people wasting money on old technology. BC you can email me too if you want some suggestions for improving your light inventory.
This is a clunky light using an incandescent bulb and 4D batteries, if it was 1995 then this would be a great light. This is heavy and provides mediocre light given it's size and weight. Not waterproof, not durable, not worth the shipping cost.
BC needs to seriously revamp their light vendors. I love BC, but the lighting, especically flashlight section, is terrible. Email me if you have any questions or would like good lighting suggestions. My email address is on my profile page.
Still lanterns are lagging behind the rest of the illumination world. This one is no exception. While Cree makes excellent LEDs this one is old old technology. If I had the money/time I'd make a good one and sell it on BC. 30 lumens is unacceptable, but if you want a run of the mill lantern then add to cart.
These are fleece pants. Basically they are sweat pants that aren't cotton so they're super soft and much lighter. Theses are prefect for lounging around on weekends and chilling at home, but not a high - performance piece of gear. They are too loose or 'relaxed fit' for anything technical, so if you're getting these for anything other than straight chilling you should look elsewhere. My only gripe and why 4/5 stars is the size. Inseam is quoted at 32" but that may even be less seems more like 33 - 34. They are very very long. I have a medium and I am 5'8 150 and these things are way too long on me. I have to role them up or just step on them if im not wearing boots. Unless you're at least 6' be prepared for the outrageous length, again only good if the couch is your primary objective. Overall comfort is unparalled for sweats, but the size leaves something to be desired.
80 Liters is including the Daypack when attached.
Kristoffer.. I own the Rab Microlight Down Jacket (deceivingly light jacket yet incredibly warm). Based on the jacket, I know these are solid pants, however the jacket has down not primaloft (synthetic fill). These pants do use pertex as the nylon shell which is a very strong light material. I suspect they would be perfect under your Beta AR's, but exact sizing I am not sure how their pants run. I am 5'8 155 and a medium top is ideal. I think a large would work but a medium might be better if you're wearing these under something and the tighter they are the warmer you'll be. Likely medium is the size for the 450/16 ounce reference. The zipper is probably not a YKK, I have not had any issues with the zipper on my jacket. These are perfect pants for midlayering in cold conditions under your shell. Rab is breaking into the US market now and I think the good buzz is just beginning, a great company finally getting international recognition.
James, the nylon is water-resistant but certainly not waterproof. These down jackets/sweaters are ideal for keeping warm in cold dry conditions. This jacket should however be windproof, as the down combined with the "polyamide" (or any synthetic shell-type material) will keep out the wind. If you're going to be using this in wet weather or while it's snowing make sure you have a shell to wear over it. Wet down is worthless so avoid the issue by rocking your shell if wetness is in the forecast.
Brian medium for sure! im 5'8 155, medium is ideal
Cad3040163.. yes good news I am 5'8 155 also with a 14 & 1/2 inch neck. Medium is your best bet. I own a medium in most of my winter jackets and my TNF down jacket is a medium and the neck is great. My buddy has a Marmot down jacket and I tried it on they fit very similar, but Marmot is nicer in my opinion. Go medium and enjoy, sick jacket!
