This Dutch oven comes pre-seasoned which is great for anyone that wants to take it out right after you buy it and get to cooking. I have a large 16 inch made by Lodge but decided to go with Camp Chef for my smaller one to compare. I have to say I believe these Camp Chef Dutch Ovens are built a little better and also come with a handy lid tool. Having the lid double as a skillet is also brilliant.
After blowing through multiple cheapy tubes I decided to try these out. The Vittoria Latex Tube holds air much better and handles much more of a beating than those other lame tubes. These are definitely worth a try if you have problems with your tubes leaking or popping easy.
These Pearl Izumi Rev Shorts look slick so you can wear them just about anywhere. They are very durable and are true to size. I have already put them through a few beatings and don't even have a loose stitch. The chamois is just right for the kind of mountain biking I love to do.
This is yet another purchase I made for my niece who is recently getting into serious camping mode. I threw this thing on and played around with the sizing but I could tell this is definitely built for a woman's frame. She loves it and it fits her great. She is roughly 5'6" and 120 lbs.
Padding in the hip belt is a big deal to me. I always noticed that in cheaper packs or ones with bad designs once you hit around 5 miles you really start to feel it. This pack has just the right amount of support without it being super huge and bulky. The long zipper down the front is pretty awesome too because Its no fun stuffing all your stuff in a top loader just to pull it all back out cause you need something at the bottom. Straps, zippers and pockets all built well. This is a really good buy.
Well it wins first place in my book anyways. These things wick sweat wicked good when hiking, biking or just running around doing whatever. They fit so good I never even notice they are on after a minute unlike all those crappy cotton scrubs out there. The bands are thick and durable and have yet to wear out on any of these I have had for a while now.
I'm amazed it took me so long to find some superb undies to keep me smiling all day long. I have since replaced all my other brands and low grade material boxers with these and I'm lovin it.
I bought this for my Niece for her 18th birthday cause she loves to camp but always gets cold in her old cheap bag. Now her only complaint is she always gets hot HaHa go figure. It is really easy for her to regulate the heat though with the dual zippers so she can pull the bag straight down instead of throwing it to the side like the mono zips.
I asked her If I could use it to just yard camp one night to try it out and I was impressed. The bag is very comfortable and the dual zips helped me out a lot because I also get really warm when I sleep. Material is very durable and seams are all sewn great. Looks like we got a winner here.
I love this bladder. I have used just about every brand out there now and this is the only one that didn't give the water a bad taste for weeks. I heard you didn't have to wash it with anything special just rinse and go. I thought ya right but I tried it anyways. Gave it a quick rinse out with water then filled it up and no bad taste at all.
The Features YO!!
* The bite valve on this thing is also much better than the cambelback ones.
* The hard spine that runs down it really helps also. Nothing I hate more hiking around is when my water would get low in my other bladders and they would sag causing it difficult for the last bit of water to come out. The spine helps ensure you get that very last drop with ease.
* This thing is also super tough and I'm not worried about tearing it while ducking a tree like I did with a competitors brand.
* Nice wide easy to fill mouth and screws tight.
Bottom line.... I have replaced all my other bladders in my pack, my fiances pack and my families packs with these and will never look back. I'm so happy Osprey teamed up with Nalgene to make this happen.
I bought this helmet as a present for my Brothers birthday. He recently put the helmet to a full test by taking a really nasty spill and smashing his head into the ground. The helmet was destroyed but his head had not a scratch. Needless to say I'm a Giro fan for life.
Just a heads up on the sizing for these belts.
Small = 32in
Medium = 34in
Large = 36in
XLarge = 38in
I don't know what it is about all my other socks but they get worn out very quick. I usually go through the heels or foot beds and sometimes the toes super fast but these puppies are nice. Tough as nails but light as a feather. They feel like your sliding your foot into a cloud that forms to your foot and gives you tiny kisses on it all day long.
The cushion is just perfect in all the right places and the thin layering in other places helps keep your feet from getting too hot. When they do get hot and sweaty though these things suck it right up like a SHAM WOW and it disappears. I have bought many 3 packs to replace all my other semi par socks.
The copy dares ask the question "What is it about the Stanley 8oz Flask that makes you feel like a real man?" Well I can tell you I feel like a real man when I pull out the full 8oz of delicious adult beverages that I get to actually drink and enjoy. This thing is super light when empty and fits nicely in a pocket or side of your sock hiding in your pant leg.
When I see people with those little cutesy 1-2oz flasks that you only get a taste instead of a drink, I cant help but laugh at the money wasted on a container that is only good for holding the tears shed after its empty so quick.
I often break watches because of my activities. Whether I smack a tree, a rail or the concrete they always break but not this little guy. I wanted something small, simple and light so I didn't notice wearing it but more importantly tough. This thing is all of those and more.
The water resistance is also a nice perk because when I'm snowboarding I get plenty of snow inside my gear from some of the gnarly wrecks. Its nice not having to remove it when soaking the soar muscles in the hot tub afterwords. It has not light but thats just one less thing to worry about breaking.
Only downside, as others have said, it does not keep time the best. It does pretty good but after a few weeks It's off by a few minutes.
I am a bit lanky and have small wrists for a guy. I bought the 18cm and it fit snug. If you were to pick up a 17cm it would probably fit the little ones pretty well.
I mainly bought this watch as a simple substitute because I break watches a lot from being active. This little thing is tough and would definitely stand up to any punishment they could dish out.
Pacsafe makes some excellent products and this one definitely did not disappoint. I had bought 2 of these for an unexpected trip since I had lost my last 2. The combo is easy to change and its always nice not having to unlock your bags for security.
After the trip a friend was messing around changing the combo and forgot what it was after he locked it onto something. We had to take it to a another friends shop to cut through it cause it is build super tough. Needless to say I had to buy another but for the price its a cheap lesson learned.
