I just got my first pair of Chaco's about two weeks ago and they fit very true to size, I am a size 10, got a 10 and they fit just right. Here are some of the Pro's and Con's from my experience
Pro's = fairly light weight
Dry super fast
great arch support and strap support
grip to river bottom like no other!
strap easily on my pack
Are comfortable in the river and around camp
Cons =
Can not substitute for hiking boots or shoes, Hiked 2.5 miles in them the second time I wore them and my feet got thrashed.
Over all they are great river sandals that can handle multi pitch ascents and descents for short distances

I demo'd this board a few years back for a couple of days and loved it. This year i bought it and cannot believe the pop. It is a great all-mountain board and rides really well in the deep powder that we have here in Utah. Like the other have stated, this is not a begginer board, and demands an experienced driver who can really utilize its potential. It is very light, very popie, and very durable. I have also found that it breaks in quite nicely. It is a little stiff for rails, and takes a little getting used to for those presses, but other then that it is top notch!

I got these gloves on a super sweet pro deal from OR and was not expecting much from them. Now they are the gloves that can do it all. I really do not like big, bulky gloves and I don't like gloves that go past my wrist. I like to pull my jacket over them and be comfortable and warm, which is exactly what these do for me. They stay very dry due to the Gore-Tex and are very light weight. These gloves are also much warmer then they appear, I have found myself in 15-20 degree weather, on the mountain, and was taking them off because my hands where so warm. I am definitely one of those "never cold" people so I don't want you to think that they don't breath because they do. For under $100, in a light weight, super waterproof glove, you cannot beat the Prophet. I also think that Outdoor Research is an awesome company that makes sure their products are top quality.
