I absolutely love my Katanas. I got them a couple weeks ago, and I had been looking at both these and the Solutions. The Katanas felt so much better right off the bat, and I'm glad chose them. The molded heel feels great, and I've had much better precision placing both heels and toes in these than my last pair. As others have said, sizing down wasn't bad at all in these as the break in time was pretty short. Long Live La Sportiva!

I love my Baltoro 65. Gregory is known for producing not necessarily the lightest packs on the trail, but packs that are absolutely bomber and tough. I'm a "tweener" (or in between two sizes) and I bumped down, and have had no regrets. If you have never bought a pack before, try one on first, because different brands target different people based on how the pack is composed or how it will fit different people.

I absolutely love this jacket. Unlike Chris Reid, I have not had the problem of it loosing its waterproofing. Easy to pack down small and lightweight make this jacket great for climbing, backpacking, and the like. And if the jacket does loose waterproofing, buying some solution for it wouldn't be too costly. Great jacket and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone.

Skull Candy came up with one sweet product with the 50/50. Sounds great and have held up nicely to wear and tear thus far. I did get these to replace a pair of Smokin' Buds, which busted on me after training with them in during wrestling season. These buds produce some pretty big sound, with both richness and volume. Definitely a solid buy.

However, given the nature of the materials used in the bowl, it does transfer a good deal of heat. Will it hold up to use with boiling water? Yes, but the heat transfers through and can burn you if youre not careful. However, it is a very intelligently designed piece of gear and with the quality that Sea-to-Summit always delivers.

Love this jacket. It a great windproof jacket, but beware in calling it water proof. Though it does repel for sometime, if you stay out in snow or rain for long, you will feel it. I wear it regularly in winter weather, and with a solid layer underneath, I can easily stay out in 20º weather for a solid amount of time.

I had one of these for a while, but it broke within the first year. On one of the sides of the valve, the piece holding it together broke off, so the valve flopped around.Also, the CamelBak is much harder to clean than a standard water bottle like a Nalgene. After owning both, I would definitely go with a Nalgene because of their dependability and ruggedness. Throw a SplashGuard on the top and it is even better.
