Rad Pad
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my first crash pad, so I must admit I'm not the most knowledgeable in this department, however, it has served me quite well. No broken ankles or rough bail-outs. Really dig the chair feature, as its super comfy once it's broken in. Best part is the backpack straps for those long approaches. I would have liked to have seen a pocket for snacks and gear, but its not a big deal. Great, affordable first pad- I'd highly recommend it!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I own 4 tents and this is by far my favorite. Sure its not the lightest, biggest, etc. but it can handle anything I've thrown at it so far (and I'm not easy on my gear). My favorite part has to be the single pole system which makes setup and take down an absolute breeze. Each time I have used this tent, it has rained and I am happy to report that we stayed dry, without question, even in torrential downpours. For a 3 man, its pretty roomy, then again I'm only 5'5" so I suppose its all relative. The gearloft is another neat feature to keep items handy like flashlights and keys, plus there are a bunch of pockets placed around the tent and large vestibule space for packs. Weight is average (I also own the footprint which I would recommend getting), but not terrible. Honestly I don't even notice the extra pound or so in difference from this and my 2-man. Bottom line, awesome tent.

Each time I use this little speaker, I become more and more impressed. The first time I heard the musical goodness flow from its spikey exterior I couldn't believe it. Surprisingly good bass for a little speaker (best I've heard compared to other speakers within the same price point), awesome battery life (I recharge it maybe once a week with moderate use), and just an overall cool setup. Really dig the water resistance and tough construction. One negative I've noticed is that the bluetooth range is definitely not 32 feet, and probably resides at about 20 max, but who cares? Overall, awesome speaker - Outdoor Tech is doing it right!

Best Hikers I own
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I bought these boots from SAC for a killer price and they have far exceeded my expectations. I was skeptical at first to order a pair of adidas hiking boots, considering their roots are in soccer and running shoes, but so far they have been the best hikers I've ever owned. After 2 years of snowy hikes and summer backpacking trips in unpredictable Colorado weather,they barely show any wear and tear, which is saying something because I'm pretty tough on my apparel.

One negative I have encountered is that sometimes my feet get a little damp when hiking in snow. I'm not sure if its due to water seeping into the boot or if the shoe does not breath well due to wool socks, however, it is not a large problem. Other than that, I can attest to the waterproofing as I have crossed many creeks without any mishaps.

The fit is true to size with a pair of light wool socks. As others have stated, it feels almost like you're wearing a running shoe.

All in all, great hikers, especially if you can get them on sale. I loved them so much, I bought my girlfriend a pair!

Love it

Fit: True to size

Wore this jacket pretty much nonstop over this past Colorado winter, and I'm very happy with it. Surprisingly warm for its weight, looks great in town, seems fairly durable, and packs down smaller than a nalgene bottle. Torso ran a little small on me but I'm 5'5" with an athletic build. If I was any taller I probably would have sized up and gone with a medium. Regardless, awesome jacket. Its kept me warm with just a base layer in sub 20 degree hikes. I would definitely recommend it.
