Great versatile Pant
5 5

Got these for climbing the spring and used them all summer for climbing and backpacking up in WI and absolutely oved them, they are durable and have a great fit I got a medium and I usually wear a 33" waist and a 34" inseam and they fit just perfect but i don't think they would fight al the way to a 35" waist like the chart says. The water repellent treatment has a good life between treatments and they look great.

have had five different sporks and they have all broken in some fashion, either the fork tines break or they break right in the middle, they are brittle all the time and especially of it is cold, they are a cold design but a waste of money and i would not recommend buying one. Sick with an aluminum or ti spork. I now have a crkt eat'n tool and that is much mor compact and useful.

Grabbed a 20l version for my sleeping bag and sleeping pad and its great for fitting in the sleeping bag compartment of my aether 85. It compresses really easily with the eVent panel on the bottom. Had one of the just dry sacks and had problems with durability so I've been carful to use this one in my tent and then put it straight in the pack and not leave it on the ground. Will up date review after a few more trips!

This is a great solo water treatment option as it is small and works really fast with little effort, however using it for a group of more then 2 is time consuming as you have to wait between bottles 2 and 3 for about a minute before it will work again. All in all a great product and the pre filter is a great addition when filtering slow moving or lake water.

affordable way to reliably finter water, easy to clean on the go and nothing to fragile. I've used it on multi week trips and only cleaned it a couple of times. I love this filter. Its not the fastest filter but it gets the job done. I've had it for 6 or so years and i've only ever bought 4 new filters. the key is to boil it after every trip and to not over scrub the ceramic part of the filter, you just neet to take off a very thin layer.

I used this all summer day hiking in yellowstone and other national parks and had a chance to use it is several storms and will it feels wet it does keep you dry. Packes nicely into one of the pockets and fits nicely in a day pack. Haven't used it in the winter snow but thats not really what its for. I have a large long and am 6'2" 170lbs.

Best bag for summits
5 5

I used this as a day summit bag to the white mountains and i cannot recommend it enough, it takes everything you need to the summit and it is comfortable the whole way. Holds and ice axe with ease as well as snow shoes once you have to srap on your crampons. Best thing i've ever bought from north face hands down, also holds the my skis for travel, i use it as my day to day bag as well. Awesome bag!
