I bought these for my girl friend. She has a pair of over mitts that came with terrible fleece liners. They were so loose she was not able to do anything dexterous in them.

Then, I bought these and she can function without every having to take them off. This helps to keep her hands dry and warm. Key to a relaxed happy touring partner.

If you have wider foot or higher volume feet you'd be doing your self a favor in picking up a pair of these socks. The wool is supper thin and soft, they do a great job of reducing friction and make my feet very happy.

Wide feet = thin sock because it takes up less volume in the boot allowing for a better fit.

Narrow feet = thick sock as they do take up volume allowing for a better fit.

I just picked up the new T1 and I have to say its by far better then any other boot on the market. I've been in the T2X and Ener-g's and these blow them both away. (I still prefer my T2X for loooong tours and multi-day stuff.)

The comfort from the new Intuition liner incredible. Its a bit stiffer then the old Scarpa liners, so the fit is just as comfy, but with more responsiveness and I imagine they'll pack out less as well. Also, I did some home baking on my liners and they turned out fine. If you've never done this before it is best to go to a boot fitter.

One note is that these soles do lack the rocker of older T1's so if you are planning on doing longer tours I'd recommend one of those new fangled free pivot bindings.

Stop thinking and buy these, you'll not regret it.

I simply love this shirt. I've owned a ton of sick clothing. Yet this is the only shirt that I feel comfortable wearing into the office to work. Then, when I get off, I don't have to change before running or cracking at the crag. If your looking for a wicking shirt but are a little scared of the price. Trust me, IT'S WORTH IT. You'll never want to take this shirt off.

These shoes are great for a person looking to run half on half off trail; or if the trails you run are fairly flat, and packed down these shoes will be the ticket your looking for. They are very light and the lack of seams truely does reduce pressure points. However, if you run very rough trails you may want to look for a shoe with a bit more support and protection.

All in all a great fitting/running shoe that is home running all but the roughest trails out there.

Plain and simple; I hate having stuff on my wrists. However, this watch converted me. super easy to use features have made me a watch wearer. Altimeter is very accurate. Like all you do have to set it before you leave, however it stays within 15 feet for the rest of that day. Which if you've owned other watches you'll know that is not to shabby.
The heart rate monitor works well also. The strap is as comfortable as can be expected. I'm a sweaty guy and have had no problems with the strap taking on moisture. All around this is a great buy.

If you Kayak, you'll want this bag. It fits in the bow or stern very nicely so you can maximize space. A key for long tours. Also the separate air chamber is a life saver and keeps you boat floating in case you do take a swim.

BONUS NOTE:
Fill the air chamber with water and let it sit in the sun for a couple of hours. Then, hang and the inflation valve lets you take a wonderful warm shower. Great for washing off that wet funky smell.

If your looking for a light pad that can take a beating this is the pad for you. Super versatile and rugged. Also, a great pad for winter camping as closed sell foam keeps the chill off your back.
However, if your looking to be super comfortable pad or are just want to save some coin, Don't. Buy a nice thick pad as a poor nights sleep can ruin your day.

This thing is huge. I build my own custom kayaks and I bought this to put in my touring boat. Super large size makes it harder to deal with. However, the size also helps because it supports your lower and middle back for all day comfort.
Bottom line, If your tired of your hips being sore after paddling your sit on top, get this and feel comforts warm embrace. Its worth every penny.

If you want a stable, yet playful touring boat this is the best out there. The 16 is a bit more maneuverable then the 17 version. If you looking for a good boat for rock gardens and day trips this is worth every penny.
In my view drop skegs are far better for paddling then a rudder and the skeg on this boat is the best design I have seen.

This is a great looking down jacket for a great price. While I just received it and haven't put it to much use; I have to say I'm impressed with it's light weight, and soft feel.

For sizing if your looking for a technical fit I'd go down one size. However, if your getting this as a relaxed fitting around town jacket, I'd follow the sizing chart.
