not a problem if you have long legs... the problem for me was that they are really tight fitting around my calves and that's for real! After hours of hiking in the winter one could really feel it pressing on your legs. If you have thick legs you might go for smartwool!!! much more warmer and nice and comfortable with enough elasticity for a lot of activities.

I have nothing against the garment... they are just build for a very specific type of body...

don't get me wrong it's a great boot

the boot is awesome for long hikes in the desert the only thing i have against them is the odd sizing and after using them a lot the pretty much became huge. There was a looot of room in ma feet so i got lots of blisters which was the time to return them. Great boot for the prize just not really my cup of tea. Nevertheless, i had good times with them

To me it was adequate for the job until it got stolen ... so... yeah.. hahha.. it is very athletic-fitting shirt. The only thing i have when comparing items is the arc'teryx merino whool long sleeve and let me tell you this one is very itchy to my taste... if you don't mind paying extra and the long sleeves get the other instead this is just too itchy.

The tent itself is very very light, true. The thing that let me down is that most of the days i used it it gave me a good dose of water in the early morning :( I used it so sleep in the desert in northern México and it was great... but in the cloud-forest it was BAD. There is condensation and while I really thought it was just me.. i tried sleeping in different parts of the forest so I would get a more accurate reading of what really is the rating on this tent. I slept in the cloud forest in:

-A cave ( no bueno)
-Near a stream ( not that bad )
-Near a small artificial lake ( there was little ventilation but the condensation was still manageable)
- inside the cloud forest but in an open field (condensation was a layer of droplets some of them fell on my body and woke me up. )
-inside thick forest lowlands (good amount of condensation)
-" " " " highlands (condesation was kept to a minimum- a small layer of little droplets is my definition of minimum)

So if anything this is a super light tent... i had a thermarest which packed to TWICE the size of the actual tent so that made me happy. The assembly is super easy I don't know what's up with the other reviewers. I pretty much take what one guy said on those P90X infomercials that piss me off so much... anyways this tukrish guy says: "if you define easy as sitting in chair, then is not easy" hahahahhaha. So all of u haters of the bd hilight- don't be sitting in chairs. aight??

buuuuuuuuuuuuut this sandals are the SHIT. I can't stress enough how GOOD these are to your feet. They are treated against ripeness and so far i've never had stinky feet on them. They are extremely comfortable and you can go anywhere with these but a swamp.. I tried that and I was better off barefooted. Just remember: loose the white socks... nobody wants to see your weird fashion around :9

if you want no blisters, calluses due to long walks and perfect fits go for these babies!

I really really like this backpack it has a AWESOME construction really dedicated details, awesome backpack air comfort technology, the rain -travel cover, LOTs of space, water reservoir (or jaegermeister, your call!) and all around very comfortable. The two things down on this klein Rucksack:

nummer eins:
there is a front pocket which is nice but htere is a concealed 'private' one just on the inside of the backpack. This cannot hold many things because it will clog the actual backpack access which gets annoying at times.

nummer zwei:
the belt... I mean common... this is like a toys belt for the backpack I really expected something more robust... although you can cope with it since this packpack is not meant to carry tons, know whatta mean?

I used this product for a trip through the jungle in Mexico and Guatemala and all I can say is that it NEVER let me down. This is really good as an insulating layer, it breathes great... it's made with recycled materials.. what's not to love? The fit? I ordered a medium and it is a great fit on the neck (15), shoulders, arms, and JUST a little tiny big on the stomach area but it can be adjusted. I ordered a whole bunch of products with this through bc and this by far is THE BEST piece of equipment i've bought in 2008. Period.

Did I mention it's like running with a t-shirt? The sensation of comfort you feel with this jacket is nonequivalent
