These boots have endured nearly all forms of abuse I can put them through: snow, clay, gravel, water, mud etc.

They did take a while to break in, though, which for some is an issue. Here is a link to a review that encapsulates it well.

I do a lot of snowshoeing and winter camping in the Colorado Rockies. Why wouldn't a synthetic bag rated at -30 not be sufficient in negative temps? I used the Lamina last week in a snowcave and 4 season tent (both times in a bivy) and woke up freezing. The temps got down to -12 but I thought in a -15 bag I would have been ok. Is down the way to go? I was told down was the worst option for winter camping because it could get wet from snow and fail to retain warmth, I just want guidance on the best option for winter warmth in snowcave/tent as well as cut back on space/weight.

After 13 years of riding resorts and hiking backcountry I have used goggles from Spy, Dragon and Oakley. I stayed away from Smith (not sure why) until last year when another Oakley lens was ruined due to trying to wipe snow out after a fall. The worst thing on the hill is fog an lack of peripheral vision. A buddy of mine who gets flow from Smith lent me a pair of these to use for a day and on the way home I bought a pair. I used them for about 18 days before the season was over.They are so solid. They fit nice and close to your head (not like bulky Oakley and Spy) they never fog and you can clean the inside without ruining the fog protection unlike spy and oakley. The Dragons are the most similar but for the price of the Fuse, this will out live the others and give you some extra cash for a beer after the day is over.
