So far so good on these. We'll see how they hold up. High and low end sound great. Bass response is much better than I thought, so that's quite pleasing to my ears. The only thing I don't really like about these is that the volume is adjusted by pressing down/clicking on the control as opposed to having a slider control and the mic/volume control is not compatable with my Droid phone so it's pretty much functionless with my cell. Worked just fine on my five mile run yesterday and the volume/search remote worked well with my Ipod Nano. They do stay pretty much fixed in my ears, but they aren't like superglue...they will still move if bumped just right or the cord snags on something. That's why a guy always tucks in the cord yes?

They aren't noise cancelling phones, but they pretty much block out all extraneous noise once you put on the correct size gel bud covers. The cord length is a little longer than my Sony buds, but I like that. Comes with a sweet case, but it will only hold my new Fix buds, not big enough to hold my Nano as well...who needs a case for buds only? Not me. These are sweet enought that I'm going to look into another set for my wife.

First of all, made in U.S.A. Second of all, made in U.S.A. Third of all...Oakley. Despite my overt nationalism, these actually do look great, feel great, an...the chicks dig 'em. What else needs to be said really? Definitely for those of us with smaller faces. Big dudes, you need to pass these by. Just wish they came in a variety of colors and in various lenses too, that way I could rock them in almost every social situation. These are keepers for a long, long time.

Hate to do this to TNF as I've been buying and loving their goods for over 10 years, but these gloves were worthless to me. I bought them to wear primarily here in upstate NY for running in the fall weather. They aren't designed for the really cold temps...that was understood going in. However, I tried them out in 42 degree weather with little wind and by the end of my hour long run, I thought I was going to lose my fingertips. My fingers were so cold that once I warmed them up inside the house, they started throbbing with some serious pain...the blood and circulation was returning to my fingers and dang, it straight up hurt. These suckers are going back and I'm going with some Seirus brand all weathers or something like that. These gloves look cool and are sleek, but they simply fail to provide much warmth or protection for even short periods in mild temps. Go for something else and make these a wallflower! Sorry TNF.

Sometimes I'm blown away by some of the gear that's available these days and with the Montara, that's the case. I paid just under 25 bucks for the grey and orange model here on backcountry.com and this thing is the bomb! It's not designed for all day ultra marathoners...it's like a Mini Hydration pack. For short length cardio, hikes of a few hours or so, that kind of thing, that's exactly what makes this work. Small, 41 oz. reservoir, but multiple stash pockets for things like trail mix, energy bars, nuts, keys, a small cell phone, even some credit cards if you need it for an exploratory jaunt through the big city. It's got great length to the hydration tube, nice clips and cinches all over to keep things tight and in order. Unbelievably well designed! The colors look great too and like all Camelbak gear, a lifetime warranty. Couple that with backcountry's insano return policy and this fanny hydration system is the rat's ying yang. It weighs around 3 lbs with the hyrdation bladder filled, so honestly it's difficult to tell that one is wearing it. Can't wait to try it out when I go snowshoeing in the ADK's this winter. Buy away and enjoy.
