Although great once you've got these poles extended, getting them to tighten is a pain. I was backcountry hiking in the NC mountains and trying to get one of the poles to tighten when I just happened to run into a guy with the same poles who showed me how to adjust the poles from inside. This works about 1/2 the time. If I were to order again, I'd find some with a different locking mechanism.

If you're allergic to down and looking for a really lightweight summer bag, this one is perfect. I still can't get over how small it is when in its stuff sack (and there's still enough room in the stuff sack for my compressible pillow and silk bag liner)! Comes with a really nice hanging/storage bag that also doubles as a great laundry bag!

Marmot makes wonderful products...and thanks to them for thinking of us tall women and making the rain pants in long!!! I rate them a 4 only because the side zippers could come up a little higher to make it a little easier to pull over my large, mid-weight boots. Kept me dry as intended, so I am very happy. Lightweight and compress quite small.

I was really hesitant about this one at first because when you mix the blueberry topping in with the cheesecake, it looks really nasty. Surprisingly, it tasted wonderful! We probably would have eaten every bite, but we got rained out after dinner and tried eating this for dessert after breakfast the next morning...a bit too sweet for breakfast. Suggestion to Mountain House: make your bags burnable!!!

I was very impressed with all of the Mountain House food I ordered for a recent trip (only ordered the ones with good reviews). This lasagna was very good! Would have been better with a little garlic bread, salad and wine...but considering we were in the backcountry, it was great! Suggestion to Mountain House: make your bags burnable!!!

Versatile, tough, convenient, and my filter screws on! I ordered two of these (4 liter) and I'll never order another brand. I have the MSR MiniWorks filter and it screws onto this bag and Nalgene bottles (standard size). The little things make a difference with these Dromedaries - 3 ways to pour water, straps that make it easy to carry back to camp, doesn't leak at all, you can boil or freeze them, and you can set it in the sun to heat for a wonderful shower!

Incredibly durable. I've slid down a few rock faces in these, and no tears. So lightweight you don't even have to remove the legs when it’s hot. They are cool and dry very fast. Two suggestions: Put zippers or buttons on the outside pants seams so you can remove the bottoms without having to take off boots. Also, make the waist a little wider. I have a tiny waist and the waist is still a little too narrow for comfort while hiking. Still great though.

Too bad we lost it on the first trip out! Yep, it comes with a handy neck lanyard, but it doesn't do much good if it isn't around your neck or in your pack! Liked it so much, I'm ordering another one. Other features not mentioned in the description include switching between your preferred display modes, temp can be read at C or F, two time zone options, and probably some other things I'm forgetting since it is somewhere in the NC mountains...
