I literally wear these 8 months out of the year straight-that means every day these get laced up. I live in the mountain town of Boone, NC, and with the wet weather, uneven terrain, and snow randomly...these are a must. I put a different insole in them because of my extremely flat feet, but other than that these are extremely comfortable for daily wear and provide good support and protection. Be sure to open them all the way up at night to avoid odor issues, but you should be good to go with these. Not too heavy for daily wear and are pretty easy to break in...if you could even call it breaking them in...very comfortable boot.

This is a great way to sleep in the warmer months, the double is great if you plan on using a pad and bag as it allows for a less confining feel while still holding you in. Get the pro straps either the mini or regular pros because they are longer and pack smaller. Also I chose to upgrade the beaners to ultra lightweight dovals as listed one the ENO website. Super comfortable, easy to set up, great for a nap or camping.

If you intend to just use it yourself in a non-camping way, go for this one. If you will be sleeping in it with a pad go for the salsa because it is a double hammock. I use the Eagle Nest Outfitters(ENO) Double nest hammock for camping and I use a 20" wide 2" thick pad under my sleeping bag.

I would like to add to AC's comments, the basic insole is worthless, it never made it out of the store. Also the heat isn't an issue, I wore these every day during an internship for a construction company. The project was on a sand covered army base where the temperature was 90 daily and humidity was 90%. They did great, the key is wearing wicking socks.

I bought this on closeout at REI last year, they had the larges for like $9 so my dad bought several for the family. I use is strictly for car camping as the large is somewhat large to carry around/backpack with. Pretty comfortable, does take a beating and about 20 minutes to fully decompress. Great for when space isnt an issue.

Ok so let me first say that I originally bought these out of curiosity as many of my friends had them. They are SHORT...but that being said...I have never had a more comfortable, easy to hike in, durable, and just overall great. The shortness allows for a wide range of movement and keeps you cool down below. They are a thick duck material but its not so thick that it becomes hot. The pockets are a little weird at first but the big back pockets are easy to stick larger items in and the wallet pocket still feels good. Plus the big back pockets are loved by the ladies hands...dont ask me why but apparently they call out to them...I dont get it but I am certainly not complaining. These hold up great and are a great short for hot summer weather hiking or just around town.

This is a good helmet, doesnt fit the best with my goggles, but not bad. It isnt too hot/cold with its vent system. I did manage a concussion last year when wearing this, but I hit really hard on ice so I cant blame the helmet. Comfortable...and as we all know, if you dont wear it its useless....wear your helmet.
