Raymond's Bio

I love being outdoors, whether mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, swimming, boating, or just car camping. I love the outdoors. That being said, I love gear. I know that may be lame, but I love getting new gear and trying it out.

These pants are great. I have several pairs and my oldest pair is pushing 6 years old. I will say that I have purchased multiple pairs of the same shade and there are almost always slight variations in the color of the pants. (This makes no difference to me, but may to some.) If you are looking for a solid pair of pants that have a gusseted crotch, roomy pockets, that wear nicely, and above all else are comfortable; then these are worth checking out.

This jacket is great! I usually wear a medium and ordered this in a medium. While it is an "Athletic" (or whatever) cut, it fits perfectly. It is not tight on me and is not baggy. It fits great and feels great. I have an older R2 from a few years back that was never as soft as this on is. Also for those who want to know, the Alpha Green is more green than it appears in the stock photos above. It is closer to a moss or Ranger green. Thats being said, I am very pleased with this jacket.

I have been wearing these sandals for at least 6 years and they are still my go to rugged sandals. The grip on slippery surfaces is adequate and the toe protection is like no other. The only down side I have found is when in moving water with loose stone at the bottom, it is not uncommon to get small stones in your foot bed. I still say these are excellent shoes. They are not the most attractive, but that is Keen's trademark.

Like everything else, having the right footwear for the job makes all the difference. I have had these shoes for 2 months and I think they look great. There is not a lot of support with the OEM insoles, and they do not seem to breathe as nicely as I would hope. I still love these shoes, they look great with a pair of jeans, moutain khakis or whatever you choose, but I think there are better alternatives for hiking footwear. I do not dislike these shoes, but as I said, they are best suited for casual footwear needs. My opinion of course...

I've been wearing these for 5 weeks now with the OEM insoles and they are great. The break in period was minimal, the support is excellent, and they look great. I wear them daily for work and spend countless hours on my feet. My feet are never sore,or tired after work and the grip on them is amazing. I can see how they could possibly hold a bit of mud, but the lugs in the sole seem like they would clean out nicely on their own. I own several pairs of Merrells, Keens, and Vasque footwear and these are one of my favorites.

I've had a lot of headlamps, and this is by far the best choice for me. It has three settings that allow you to save battery life when possible, and it is comfortable on your head and also very light. This is a great piece of gear and I carry one with me in each of my vehicles everywhere I go. It is a good idea to keep track of how often you use it to assure your batteries don't die on you while you are in the dark.
