At first I was skeptical of this pack. But the description and picture do this pack no justice. First of all the AirFlow on this pack is incredible. And it has the best zipper system ever. There are even two zippers at the bottom, one holds a flip out mesh style attachment for added stowage. And then another zipper opened up to reveal a complete RAIN COVER!. This was obviously when I fell in love. I don't think the description states that, so that was a huge surprise. The Airflow system takes a pinch off the total volume you can pack but it's worth it for a summer day pack or summit pack. This is an absolute winner.

If you own one, you will end up loving it and never forget to bring it.

Quadruples as a pillow, neck rest, lumbar rest, and foot warmer to fill up the end of the sleeping bag.

And it comes with it's own stuff sack which is attached. Really, What more could one possibly want out of a pillow? I also believe the weight is more like 3.5 oz.

I tested out this awesome bag a few nights ago at around about 10,260 feet. When the sun goes away the temperature always drops, and the mountains become cold here in Colorado. There is no escaping that reality if you want to sleep high. The lithium is just the ticket. The only problem I have found if you want to call it a problem is that I slept too deep. Bears could have been stealing my food and I would not have cared. Maybe it was just the Lithium, who knows. I dare anybody to find a better bag. Full zipper rocks now so you don't overheat and possibly sweat. But even if you do sweat the bag seemed to cooperate correctly with that issue amazingly well. Just be sure to wear capilene or have a wicking liner inside and the imperfections of mountain sleeping can simply vanish into smokey thin air. Mostly smokey because of the California wild fires.

Pants came with a 'security clip' attached that could not be removed. I notified customer service yet was still accused by the return department of returning pants that were not purchased from here, my notes read "Loyal Customer, see notes. We will honor the customer's word". Wow, gee, thanks for believing me.

These pants will fit fat tall people rather well if you can remove the security clip. Otherwise, sitting down might become an adventure.

My first pair is still with me and still looks practically brand new even after 50 plus trail miles. They are the most scratch resistant lenses I have ever used. They totally smoke my Oakley's in comfort and functionality. The anti-fog rules.

There really is not anything bad to say about these glasses except for maybe they would not look good on somebody with an enormous head.

This tent was used in heavy Colorado rain and the 2 wall design worked flawlessly. People in other brand tents were complaining while I was bone dry. The vestibule caused absolutely no problem with rain coming 'into' the tent. This simply was not an issue. Actually, it may be one of the better tents out there for heavy rain conditions because of the stout fly design. Since the fly can be easily made tight there is no chance of the fly and the inner wall ever hitting. The 'backpack' type snaps and closures make this a fool proof design for any rain situation.

I think it is quite obvious this is the best headlamp available. The only thing I had trouble with was figuring out how to switch modes with the "half press". I don't think this headlight has any competition right now however, so we will need 6 stars when the better one comes out.

It would be ideal to eventually be able to control the type of color of light between blue and red.

I have used this in an emergency to put a brookie trout in while i was busy fixing my line and before I got my leash out. When I filled it up for the first time with water from the lake the dogs went at it like a giant dog water bowl. All in all I think it gets used least as a kitchen sink, but hey! All the better! What better is an item when it more than triples in use!!

Seriously, what more do you want? Maybe you are not serious.

Up here in Northern Colorado we have terrible cell phone service. And most of the time when you go into the mountains here you get no cell phone service at all. Never, ever. Even if you climb to a peak. That is where this device shines. It is a link to the outside world. Whatever that need be. At the very least you get to communicate to others that you are "A" ok. And when you get back home the tracking feature can be quite fun. I just wish this thing was a bit lighter in weight. It does not rank among one of the items you want your buddy to carry instead.
