Justin's Bio

Grew up backpacking around Central Oregon and then moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, where I make frequent trips to Yosemite. I'm now living in the paradise that is Park City, Utah. I've also enjoyed trekking in Tanzania and Kenya and am looking forward to my next adventure (Australia, Central America, etc ??)

These are the most comfortable boxers I've ever worn. The material is very soft and isn't prone to clinging where you don't want it. There are also pretty durable. They've been on several trips now and many wash cycles and are still in great shape.

They lost a star in my review because there is no button on the front flap (which would be fine, except the flap runs the full length of the front).

When I bought these, I thought the antishock was a cool feature, but overkill. I had to borrow some poles for a recent hike and I say now that the antishock is a must-have. They are totally saving my elbows.
At 120cm extension, these seem a like they won't stop a fall. I know from experience now, that they will. The poles have been thoroughly abused and they still work great. The expander mechanism has lasted and I have no trouble with slippage.

I bought this to haul my trekking gear around East Africa. This bag is HUGE. It survived the baggage handling at the airport (can't say the same for other luggage I've purchased), survived being hauled up Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Kenya, and still looks in great shape. The back straps are pretty convenient as well.
Its worth noting that this bag is NOT waterproof.

Similar to other reviewers, I found the sizing to be slightly snug, but not enough that I would go up a size. I bought the medium and I usually wear a 32 pant size. The inseam is a good length for this type of short. They hit me about 1 inch above the knee. (in pants, I wear a 31 inseam)

The fabric is awesome. They feel like my OR soft shell pants, but are more stretchy and not as warm. I wore these in high 90s heat and wasn't too warm.

This shirt is very nice. Same with other reveiwers, I found it to run a little larger. I wear a 15.5 - 32/33 dress shirt and the medium here fits big on me. Not so much I'd trade it for a small though.
The material is excellent and super light weight. Its almost see-through, so if you don't like that, this isn't for you. As the title of my review says, this is my go-to shirt for situations where I'd rather not have a shirt on, but don't want to get sun-burned and/or don't want my pack on bare skin.

I recently purchased this shirt, along with similar shirts from ex Officio and Mountain Hardware. While I do like all 3 them quite a bit, this one stands out. I bought the medium for this shirt and it fits well (dress shirt size is 15.5- 32/33).
The material is nice and the construction is sturdy. Nice and light weight, but appears durable so far. The Specs say "1 chest zip, 1 chest napolean", however, the one I got only has one pocket total and its hook and loop (velcro). The flap on the other side is just decor. The length of this shirt is perfect for me. Its long enough to tuck in, short enough to be worn un-tucked. The one and only thing where this shirt doesn't beet the others I purchased is in location of the button on the sleeve. On this shirt, its just above my elbow, meaning the sleeve roll is just below. Others I've purchased in this category have buttons higher up the sleeve. This is not a problem for me, but worth noting here. Also worth noting is that unlike the photo in this listing, there is no decal on the cuff (phew!).

Although its a "dualist", I took it on a 4 person trip and it worked great. None of us like drinking from a bowl, so instead of using the set as 2 bowls and 2 cups, we used all of the bowls as bowls. I really like the deep 1.8 liter pot compared to other brands that have shorter wider pots. This is because its much easier to pour water out of a narrow deep pot. Agree its a little hard to stir the food if you actually cooking in the pot. Everything cleans up pretty easy and its very convenient to pack.

This rack is easy to use and is easy on the hull. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that you can't lock it to your rack system. At $140, I'd hate to come back from the lake and have no way to take the kayak home.
For reference, I had the Ocean Kayak Malibu 2 XL (tandem). While it will fit, its not very secure. I think the width at 34inches is too much for this carrier. My other kayak, at 29inches works fantastic.

I've worn these twice now in totally different conditions. First time was in powder, second time was on crusty ice. For the powder, these worked pretty good. I did sink a fair bit, but I was wearing a pack and the surface area of these isn't quite enough to support all that weight. I was happy to have the ease of mobility provided by the smaller surface area even with the extra sinking. On the crusty snow, these show were awesome. The teeth on the bottom are amazing. Much better than the standard 5 or 6 points I've seen on other shoes.
On one of my trips, I was wearing these and a friend was wearing some other brand. I was in and out of the shoes in a fraction of the time. I find the bindings here very user-friendly.

Bought this as my first my first climbing harness. I've rented harnesses before and found them to be extremely uncomfortable. After a few uses and many hours, this one still feels comfortable, even during a couple short falls. Stitching all seems to be well done. I have a 32inch waist and the medium fits perfect.

I've had mine (the 2006 model) for 5 years now and have literally traveled the world with it. I've camped on a glacier and been toasty. Most recently, I used this bag for climbing both Kilimanjaro and Mt Kenya. I only had to zip the bag up for 1 or 2 nights. Its that warm.
All in all, its a good bag for the price. If you can spend the extra money, there are lighter bags that are just as warm.

I'll never go back to "regular" glasses!
5 5

I love these glasses. The lenses have amazing clarity. Also, the auto tint feature makes transition from sunny areas to shade very convenient. No more putting glasses on my head and then putting them back on my face over and over again. I never realized how clutch that technology was, but will now never go back. The rubber on the nose piece is a nice touch as it prevents them from sliding on a sweaty face. They are pretty light considering how sturdy they are, but I could definitely feel them after 8+ hours straight.

Great flexible pack
5 5

I've used this pack several times now and love it. Key features for me:

1) Pivoting hip belt. Unlike most packs where the hip belt is locked in an upsidedown "T" shape, this one allows for mobility. I carried this pack with about 40lbs (including pack weight) on a 4-day hike that included a fair amount of scrambling, including a long 5.2 climb. The additional flexibility allowed by the pivoting hip belt was a life saver.

2) "Sticky" material at the based of the pack. All previous packs I've owned caused my shirts to ride up over time such that I need to pull the shirt down every 15 mins or so to avoid having the pack on bare skin. The material at the base of this pack prevents that. Small detail, big comfort.

3) Fully adjustable. There are so many different ways to load and secure this pack. This is very handy when you need it as a day pack in the middle of a long trip to investigate an offshoot to your main trail.

4) Hip belt is thick and is molded into a curve. I've had issues in the past with packs being a little more flimsy at the hip belt, meaning that to get the load balanced on my hips correctly, I had to cinch the belt up SO tight that it was tough to breathe.
