John Langer's Bio

My first love is the outdoors. When I'm not at the Backcountry.com offices, I'm up hiking, skiing, camping fishing or climbing in the mountains. I may have been mistaken for a Sasquatch once or twice... Utah has been my basecamp for over a year now, and before that I resided in Bozeman, Montana (the last best place).

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Absolutely in love with this setup. Sierra Designs really paid attention to the details with this bag. The sewn in comforter design allows it to perform well in a variety of temperatures, and the partitioned foot vents mean I can stick my feet out in the night when I'm feeling hot or claustrophobic, without my wife having to do the same. She can also take advantage of the extra comforter if I decide I'm too warm in the middle of the night. The bag looks small when you first lay it out, and my wife even asked, "Are we going to fit in that?" But rest assured, there is ample space in this sleeping bag. It packs down surprisingly small with the included stuff sack (the 9x16 stuff size is overstated, mine naturally packed down to about 9x13) , but I think I'll look into a good compression sack to save a little extra space in my pack. The tag lists a 3lb 15oz. trail weight, but when you take into account that the 600 fill 41 degree bag from SD weighs 2lbs 2oz (x2) you're actually saving a few ounces for you and your significant other with this setup.

Fit: True to size

If you want the most comfortable, cushioned hiking socks around, then look no further. These are extremely comfortable and durable. The packaging says "special edition" but doesn't really go any further explaining what makes them special... I've used them several times now and have been thoroughly impressed.

Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 180 lbs
Size Purchased: 11.5

These shoes are the definition of quality men's footwear. I have been wearing them regularly for 4 months now and they still look brand new. They are extremely comfortable, and everything I would expect for the price. They tend to run a little large, however. I usually wear a size 12 street shoe, but had to return these for an 11.5.

Meridian Line is one of those brands that is going to take off - Not only are their graphics awesome, but the quality and fit are on point as well. This one is no exception. The flag has details you can only see up close, but I get compliments on it every time I wear it.

As the last review noted, these have a tendency to shrink a bit if you don't let them air dry (but who has time for that?). Despite that fact, these are still great, durable socks. On a side note, they're the only socks my dad will buy now - he swears by them - and dads know socks.
