I'm a big fan of MSR snowshoes and when I needed a new pair I was interested to try this binding system. After using them for a full winter, I'm not impressed. If you use one pair of boots of the entire season then perhaps it will save you some time, but I don't think it is significant. If you are changing boots, it is a pain (switching from mountaineering boots to hiking boots). Once in, the bindings are secure and work as described. Overall these are high quality snowshoes, read about the bindings thoroughly and decide whether the advantages/disadvantages of this binding system is worthwhile for you. I will continue to use these and they will serve their purpose well. You can't beat the durability, traction, and weight combo of MSR snowshoes!

Running in these would be my least favorite use for them, although it certainly can be done. Tennis, hiking, rafting, gardening, hanging out around town...These shorts are great for everything and look nicer than many other shorts. One word of caution - Patagonia does has changed the style of these. I happen to like the current style best as the elastic is looser and there is a more relaxed feel to the fabric.

I can't say enough great things about this dress. I wear it everywhere, including rafting. I'll wear it in the river...it drys quickly and then still looks good enough to grab dinner afterwards. I'm 5'6'' 135 and 34D...I wear a medium with a swimsuit or without a bra. It has been referred to as the river goddess dress and all of my friends want to get one!

I wear this hat for rafting. I'll jump in the water and sometimes even be dumped out of the boat, and it stays on because of the chin strap and top adjustment toggle. It folds in half and packs away when I don't want it. One note: because of the size of the brim, this hat does not work well when wearing a pack. Otherwise I love it!

I've used this back on several extended backpacking trips. I can fit everything (including two bear canisters), and the pack still looks good. I wish they made the 95 in a women's version. I also have a Bora 62. I've had that pack for years and it still looks like new (with the exception of being faded). You won't be disappointed with this pack.
