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 wear this jacket for backcountry touring and at the mountain on wet/snowy days. I've also worn it for several weeks of winter camping. I tend to keep the hood out and love the high collar - hood combo. It's great for keeping my face out of the wind and snow. The pit zips sometimes stick, but that's my only complaint. Highly waterproof and very comfy. There are other comparable jackets that you can buy for less, but if you find this one on sale, go for it!

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 thought that I would love these cords because I have other Mountain Khaki pants. As other reviewers noted, the regular are (or maybe were) very short. I found that they ran large in the waist and stretched a lot and sat a bit too low for me. They are wonderfully soft, but I never wear them because of the poor fit/stretch.

I've had this pack since 2004 (I think), and I've taken it all over the world and on all sorts of terrain. I take it on my daily hikes in the foothills in Idaho, and as a carry-on when traveling. My laptop even fits inside so I occasionally carry it for work. My only complaint is that the zipper tabs came off, but it looks like they've changed the design since I bought mine. I've given this pack as a gift numerous times.

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.

I love these. I won't ski or even hike in cold weather without them. I also wear them under Carhartts or old jeans when doing winter shoveling or spring yard work. And they are great to sleep in at home or on a backcountry trip. They keep the butt and upper thighs warm and are soft and comfy. True to size (don't order up, you'll want them to fit well to wear under all types of pants).
