That is very true but you would have a hard time keeping a freezer bag attached to the top deck of your kayak without you map ending up wet from a torn bag when you flip it over to either get out of your kayak or to look at the other side of the nautical charts. If you are just doing backpacking then a freezer bag is for sure all that you would need.

Actually I agree quite the opposite of sizing up. Yes they at first the band can feel quite tight around the forefoot but they will loosen slightly over time and fit your foot better. I normally wear a 10.5 or 11 in most shoes. I have tried 10's before and my toes were hitting the front of the shoes and I ran the risk of toenail damage. With these I tried them on in the store and I fit perfectly in a 10. That is including with and without socks. I choose thin socks, but socks none the less. My toes are right at the end of the toe box (right where they should be in this type of shoe) but not mashed up against it. I have not used these for very much trail running but I have done street running and some backpacking in them and I could not be more pleased. They are an excellent shoe and I would recommend them to anyone that is looking. I have tried 5 fingers and they gave me pretty significant blisters, and with the fabric between the toes, prevented my digits from splaying out properly because I had to fight the fabric. These are not that case. Tight around the fore-foot and a wide toe box create a very nice atmosphere for my feet. Definitely a 5 star shoe and I have plans to keep buying them each time that the old ones wear out.

Works well for keeping a map dry and close at hand. Case in built very well and works like it is supposed to, but be warned, he dimensions that are given are the exterior dimensions. I thought the small at 8x12in would be just barely smaller than a piece of notebook paper but it is significantly smaller. I would suggest going with a med. The small works but it gives you a very minimal amount of the map that you can see at one time. The interior dimensions are 6x10.5in for the small. The med will be 10x14.5 interior dimensions. A much better amount of map to have showing.

Great shirt. It wicks moisture well, protects you from the sun, looks good, vents well, dries fast, and is very comfortable. Can't ask for anything else. I like the placement of the back vents too. It is not a flap across the center of your back. The vents are behind your shoulders which is great cause it still vents with your pack on. It does run a full size big. I am 5'10" 175 with an average build and the small is just right. I tried on a med and it felt to me more like a large.

I am sure this is a little late to respond and you have most likely already chosen but I have the Kode 30 and absolutely love it. The Kode 30 is an excellent pack. That is very comfortable to wear and move with you very well. But I suppose it also depends on what you intend to do with the pack also. One thing that the Kode has that this one doesn't that is must in the below freezing temps is a space in the shoulder straps that keeps your water hose from freezing.

The pack is the perfect size to fit all you would need for a day in the back country. I can't attest to the ski carry but the board carry is quite easy to use and keeps the snowboard very stable. It is very easy to access all the pockets in the pack but it takes a little getting use to the pack unzipping from the back plate. Very comfortable when you are snowboarding. I barely notice it is there. It is also not so big that you have to take it off to get on the ski lift. It even works extremely well as bag to wear while you are riding a motorcycle. Does a decent job at shedding rain and keeping your gear dry. The pack forms a good seal along your back and wont cause the wind to throw you off balance. Just make sure you use rubber bands to keep the pack straps from slapping your helmet. That can get on your nerves quite quick. I only have one complaint about the bag. If you don't have the pack at least a good portion of the way full it does not compress all that well. All around one of the best packs there is.
