Would I fit in an XP10 at 6' 5"?
Been traveling around and working overseas for seven years now. I've been living in Indonesia, Australia, Singapore, Argentina, and now Brazil. I'm an avid caver, snowboarder, kiteboarder, surfer, mt biker, trail runner, river pirate, and amature naturalist. I live and work outside and somewhere along the way I became a gear junkie. Lately I've been all about gear that serves multiple rolls, in multiple enviroments.
It's all about taking the good with the bad: like sleeping under the stars on a remote beach, you still get sand in your butt.

This is the best PFD I have ever owned. Donning it takes some getting used to as it has no zippers. It goes over the head and you tighten up the sraps. Holds a short rope in the front pocket and odds and ends in the side pockets. Loads of adjustment, I can get the Greenjacket to hug me just right. The freedom of movement is awesome.
Bought this for my 16 month old. It has a great range of adjustment so she'll be able to grow with it. The grab handle onthe back is get for getting a good grip on my little fish.
Less than five minutes to replace the standard caps with these. No rack should be without!
Here's another hard wearing, good fitting shirt from Patagonia. At 6'-5", there is plenty of length on this shirt. I expect it to stay as soft and well fitted as my polarbear on an iceberg shirt that has served my for some many years. The artwork of the waves on the left coast is really nice, and gets lot;s of compliments.
These shirts are my new gold standard for run wear. Granted, I had to give up a lot of gold to own one, but it's certainly the most comfortable run top I have. So far, I've experienced zero nipple rub. At 6'-5"the XL fits nice, really good length on Arc' gear for tall guys.
These are my new favorite shorts, they have usurped the top spot in the shorts drawer from my Patagonia Shop Shorts. The fleece lining and fit are awesome. I'm 6'-5" & 200lbs, the 38 fit me perfectly. I cant wait to get home from work, put these on, and get outside.
I recently discovered that these are great for touhing up the edge on my pocket knife.
These are about 3" long. They could be a little longer for better handling.
I just can;t get over what an improvement these bottles are over the conventional bike bottle. It's like switch to clipless pedals for the first time.
So easy even I could do it.
Best thing since sliced bread in the wrinkle free world.
That's me sleeping sound on my Prolite. Why? Because it's so comfy, and I'm not too worn out from lugging a heavy pad all overr this mountian side. This has been a great pad. It rolls down small and tight to about the size of a water bottle. I've even slept deep in a Mexican cave of this pad. Don;t forget the stuff sack!
No, it comes in a little nylon case with a flap and velco closure. It does a pretty good job of keep dust off the objectives. I've been hunting little caps for a while without luck. Let me know if you come up with something.
I love the new river gorge area. This map has some really great information about places most guides don't advertise. If you live any where WV, get this map and spend some time getting lost in the New River Gorge area. (Getting lost = discover new places and see new things.) Gauley season is in the fall, which tends to be a bit rainy, TI thought about that and made the map waterproof. (And my personal experience is that the map is beer proof as well)
Bought my Longs Peak trails Illustrated map several months before climbing. Spent hours pouring over it, planning & postulating the climb. The maps are very detailed with lots of information in the margins. I'll get the TI map for my next adventure if they are avalible for sure.
What size UNion binding for a size 12 boot?
I wear size 12 boot. What size binding do I need?
These are just as much a joy to place as they are to hold in your hand. They are a real engineering beauty. Metolius is very proud of them (they are quite the investment). Certainly the best produced I have ever owned.
