"I absolutely love my chacos! They go on every trip with me. I cant imagine not having them. So amazing for every trip to go on. I took them with me to Costa Rica in 2012 and they got some use on the zip lines! I also take them with me to Havasupai every year that i go. I wouldn't have any other shoes there while hiking through rivers and jumping off cliffs all weekend. Its a little bit hard to adjust the double strap, but after you get them adjusted the first time, they are no problem after that. Very comfortable for walking, hiking, playing in the water, etc. I wear a size 5 in regular shoes and i got a size 5 in Chacos. They fit absolutely perfect."
This bivvy is great as an emergency heat boost, but not so great for every night use. I bought it based on the reviewer that said they used it every night in the summer, but that did not work for me. This thing does not breathe at all despite the vent at the bottom and the openings between the velcro closures on the side. I got clammy using just the bag in the summer, and downright sweaty when I used it to up my bag rating in the winter in a hammock. Whether it was inside my sleepbag, or my bag was inside it, I was not able to sleep comfortably. I ended up putting it between my bag and hammock and it worked well there.
As an emergency bag, there is no doubt, this thing keeps the heat in! But I would not use it again casually.
This is a perfect addition to ANY pack you want to use your Osprey bladder with! I originally thought three was overkill, but they got used quickly! Threw one on my weeklong backpack that had a hydration pouch, but didn't come with a bladder. Used one on an off-brand pack, and gave another to a friend in need! The magnet is strong and great for keeping your hose from flopping around or getting in the muck when you set it down.
Gave these as a gift:
"Best gloves i have ever used! Very warm. Absolutely love the wrist leash on it. I did ski program and took kids up to brighton to ski and was constantly having to take them off to help kids get ready to get up on the mountain. Insulated and very warm. I love them. Cant wait to get back in the snow and use them again!"
Gave this as a gift:
"Such a warm beanie. I take it snowboarding with me whenever i go and i dont get cold at all. I also wear it just around town and love the look of it. Holds its shape very well. Get so many compliments on it."
I gave this as a gift and have information to share:
"One of my favorite shirts! I bought this to take to Costa Rica because it is a dri release fabric. I havent gone yet, but went on a bike ride with it just today and it kept me cool the whole time. Definitely lives up to what it says. I usually wear a size xs in other shirts so got a small in this one. Fits just how i thought it would. A little bit baggy but that is expected with a t-shirt. Absolutely love it!"
I gave this as a gift but have information to share:
"I absolutely love this shirt. It is super soft. It keeps me cool. Awesome design. I love Marilyn Monroe and get so many compliments on it every time i wear it. I usually wear an xs in all of my shirt and got a small. It is a little bit big but that was expected and love the fit."
These things are great! Simple to pair up with your devices and easy to use. The hardest part, literally, is figuring out which of the three provided sizes of earpieces and wings fit your ears. I have used these on Ragnar and half marathons and had zero issues. No problems with sweat, and no falling out. They are definitely a runners best friend.
This is my second pair of ThirtyTwo's and I love them! They seem to fit true to size, like my other pair. I generally wear a size 12 in hiking boots and dress shoes and wear a 12 here too. This feels more like a performance fit boot vs an all day comfort boot like my last pair. This is not to say they aren't comfortable, because they definitely are, and my feet stay perfectly warm.
The Boa system is great and lets me jump right in for a quick pow sesh. I'm also able to tighten these on the go, which is nice. Having two section of the Boa is great because I like my calf tight and my foot loose.
I used to hear about people's Boas breaking all the time, but I've really beat these up this year and haven't had an issue. They even come with a spare wire in case something happens.
I would recommend this boot to anyone who is looking for a great boot with the Boa system.
I took these down for a week in Havasupai, and I'm sure glad I did! In and out of water all day, having sandals is a must and these are solid! They really hold on to your foot, feel secure like a shoe, and grip as well as any hiking boots on land, and even better in the water. I got them a few weeks early and started wearing them around for day-to-day business. This is a must because it takes a minute to get used to them and also to get the straps dialed in to where you want/need them. After wearing these only a few times a week for 3 weeks before my trip, I was a little worried about how my feet would fare, but I put 13 miles on them in a couple days with no more wear on my feet than I would expect after that distance. These are definitely my new best friend.
One thing you'll probably wanna do after every few hiking trips is pull all the straps through the slots under water to get the dirt out. If you leave the dirt and sand in there, it will start wearing and fraying your straps!
This is a great hammock! Very durable. I got the double nest on recommendation of friends and its great to wrap up in. It's also great to have a second person in to relax, but unless you REALLY like cuddling, you probably wouldn't want to sleep two in it. I generally like harder straight surfaces to sleep on (think carpeted floor,) but I had no problem sleeping in this hammock. If you sleep a little diagonally in the hammock, it allows you to straighten out a bit. The one and only complain't I have with this hammock is the steel carabiners. Not only are they HEAVY, the don't have the cleanest edges and they catch on everything, which is a real pain when you are trying to attach or detach this from webbing or rope that is pulled tight. I would recommend buying lighter, nicer carabiners to replace them.
Even tho these are Ray-Bans, I was a little worried that the folding hinges would make these cheap and fragile, but they are actually pretty solid and I have no complaints. These seem to be a little narrower than the standard wayfarer, so if you have a narrow face that doesn't usually hold them on, this may be your ticket. That being said, if you have a wide face, steer clear of the folding version!
Let me start by saying this thing isn't light, but that's what makes it a perfect desk bottle. I never felt completely comfortable having my Nalgene open on my desk next to my computer, but this sits solidly and makes me feel safer. I also love that the outside is removable so you can throw the glass inside in the dishwasher. Since it is glass, I can use it with flavored and mixed drinks without it picking up the flavors (like my Nalgene does.) With the bamboo outer, it looks great too!
Got this as my first pair of climbing shoes and I LOVE them. I wore a 12 in most Evolv's and got these in an 11. They were definitely tight, and not real comfortable to stand around in, but once I start climbing it's not a problem at all. These are solid on my foot and despite being "slip" ons, there is no slip at all. At this size they do take a little work to get on, but not more than 30 seconds a piece. After about 20 climbing sessions, these are beginning to feel like they were made for my feet, and they definitely give me more confidence on tiny ledges and smearing than I ever had with any pair of Evolv's I tried.
This is the women's version of the Black Diamond Momentum SA. A solid pick for a first harness. You definitely wanna pick this Speed Adjust version over the AL; The quick adjusting and no hassle buckles are great for getting this on and off.
My first North Face jacket purchase and I couldn't be happier. I got this one 'cause I was wary of the jackets with fleece on the outside of the sleeves. I can't imagine anyone not looking good in this jacket. You'll look good climbing a mountain in it, and you'll look good wearing it over a shirt and tie. Classic.
The newer ATC-XP with holes in the walls that comes with this is amazing. It's noticeably lighter and it seems to bite on the rope a lot better than my older ATC-XP. As an FYI, the belay device I got with this package was bright orange. This is a great package buy and I have zero complaints.
This jacket is legit. If it's above 32F, no need for the liner, but I bring it along anyway to wear before/after and for lunch. Its comfy! Jacket has wrist gaiters and a powder skirt with loops and snaps. Two chest and two hand pockets, one forearm pocket, and a yo yo for your pass. This thing also keeps you dry even in wet melty snow. Definitely happy with the purchase.
