My husband and I had been looking for a versatile kayak that we can use in the lakes and rivers in Kentucky. We found the perfect kayaks in the Tsunami 120 for me and the Tsunami 125 for him.
The seat is comfortable and easy to adjust, and the Tsunami 120 is a great size for someone with a small to medium frame (I'm 5'6'', 130 lbs). Measuring 12 feet, the Tsunami tracks great in the water, but also isn't difficult to maneuver. The fact that it can float in just a few inches of water makes put-in/take-out really easy regardless of where you're accessing the water. I have a little trouble securing the aft hatch cover; that's really the only issue I can come up with on a mostly perfect kayak. We look forward to using these for years to come.

I have the regular Mountain Masochists and love them. I just had a pretty bad ankle injury, and it'll be a while before I can hit the trails again, but I'm wondering if, when the time comes, this shoe would be a good option that provides more ankle support than lower running shoes. Is it still light and comfortable enough to run in, or does it feel more like a hiking boot? How much ankle support does it provide? Thanks!

I loved the Mountain Masochist I, and this update is still a solid trail running shoe. There is a good balance of stability and cushioning that leads to comfort both on the trails and on the half mile of pavement I run to get to the trails. Like the prior version, this still a good shoe for a runner with a narrower, high-arched, low volume foot, but I've had to work a little harder getting the upper nice and snug without getting it too tight. This may get better as they break in. Overall, this model still has the grippy sole, reliable tread, tough exterior, and blend of cushion and stability that makes the Mountain Masochist my go-to trail running shoe.

I have a high-arched, low-volume foot, and I'm in love with this shoe. I've worn it on cross-country runs and some single track trails, and the traction, stability, and comfort have been top-notch. And at the current price, it's absolutely a steal. Doesn't hurt that the shoe is also cute to wear into town. I'm going to buy a second pair while they're still in stock. I'd agree with previous reviewers that this is a good shoe for narrow, low volume feet, or feet with high arches. I bought my normal running shoe size, and they fit perfectly.

This is a very cute shirt, but it was so short I had to send it back. I don't mind shirts being fitted, but I like a little more overall length. I'm 5'7", 135 and the US 8 / UK 10 was very fitted overall, but not too tight, and super short. Again, it was cute, and looked functional, so if you don't mind shorter tops, this one may be for you.

This shoe is cush! The first time I wore these shoes was on a super rocky, boulder-strewn trail - the kind of trail that usually hurts my feet. Not in these shoes - comfy out of the box, and they really protected my feet and kept them happy. I've hiked in the Blue Ridge and in the Rockies, and at the end of each day, my feet are never tired or achy. I guess if I could change one thing about them, I'd make them water resistant, but I have other shoes to wear in those conditions. These are great in the summer heat - my feet never get too hot. I'm a big fan.

This has turned out to be a pretty nice shirt. It's a little thicker than I expected, but it's super soft and wicks sweat away pretty well. I used it as a base layer when hiking in Colorado in July, and it was perfect for that. I'm not sure I noticed much of an effect from the mesh side panels, but I'm sure they don't hurt. Unlike a lot of technical shirts, this one fits true to size, which was a nice surprise. Again, this shirt is awesomely soft.
