This is a great Jacket. Lighter weight than other soft shells I've owned. Very breathable. The hood is a tad tight with a helmet, however I do also have a giant head. I'm 6'2" 195lbs and the large fits great. I went with the mountain safety orange (because that was all that was avail. in my size) which I cringed at at first, but now I like it. I stick out in summit shots just fine!
These get the job done (in a strictly adequate sense). Require lots of adjustment throughout the day and more often than not the fly is open because of the huge opening. I have used better and worse.
Strange cut. I have to constantly adjust these all day long. Even if I wear them to work. These are a last resort in my undies drawer.
These are my new go to boxers. Great fit. I bought these, patagonia boxerbriefs and mountain hardwear boxer briefs just to test out a few brands. They can make it through the day without constant adjusting. While backpacking other boxers tend to fight with my hiking shorts, they want to give me a wedgie and my shorts want to sag. These keep right in place. Best of all, they don't smell like dead things after one use (like my old go to's, Under Armour). Highly recommended, I'm going to buy a few more pairs.
Very solid knife. Its a tad heavier than I thought. My scale has it at about 4oz. While the autoLAWKS mechanism is nice, it does open in your pocket sometimes. The grip is great, but my hand is too big for it to fit 4 fingers around. I love CRKT knives
Definitely not a lightweight shirt. Burton didn't skimp on the fabric for this shirt...what they did skimp on was stripes. The striped front and plain back is kind of...awkward. Other than that, I dig it.
I love this hat. Plain and simple.
I wear it while backpacking, fly fishing, approach hiking, camping, driving... It's particularly useful on backpacking trips. If its too hot for a hat, I fold it up and stow in any pocket. The brim is long enough for keeping the sun off of my eyes and short enough to make me forget its in my pocket. It's often made me the brunt of many Castro jokes (I have a beard), but I don't care. I'm going to buy another right now.
I got this in the mail yesterday and have had it on since. Its very soft, warm and reasonably lightweight. The cut is great and fits me and my longish torso very well. Its nice to find something in a size thats long enough without being cut for a heftier man. It looks nice too; I'm wearing it at work right now (Well I don't have to wear a tie for my job).
This thing is great. Well, I haven't tested it outside yet. I will be putting it to the test at 19,000+ feet in about 3 weeks--we'll see how she holds up. Right now my only gripe is that when zipped all the way up it is a little tight around my neck.
This pack has come with me for 2 month long trips to New Zealand, multiple sections of the AT, and much much more. Its held up just fine for the two years I've owned it. The suspension system works beautifully and carries heavy loads. In my book gregory packs are the best.
I've warm these in snow (skiing), rain (trekking), ice (climbing) and they are impenetrable. They're great and lightweight bomber pants.
I love this jacket. Its super-ultra lightweight and very warm. Its not as puffy as most down jackets out there so you can wear it out on the town without looking like marshmallow backcountry boy. Its a great layering piece and packs down to about the size of a Nalgene (maybe smaller). I originally bought it for very cold temps but I don't it would cut it for sub-zero. However its turned into a great down sweater that I will bring along on 80% of my backcountry ventures from summer peak baggin' to fall backpacking.
I demo'd these last weekend in variable conditions: groomed, powder, chunky, off trail and they were great. They're nice and fast if you let loose.
