Heaven will be a place where every sunset dies beneath a mellow fire of crackling juniper as I soak in a bubbling jacuzzi nestled at the feet of all fourteen 8,000-meter peaks huddled together under a Van Gogh-like sky.
Reality has been pretty rad too: I spent much of my college life buzzing around the Américas practicing my Spanish in loud coffee shops and tiny restaurants that were converted out of people’s garages. When state-side, I was either slaloming not-so-steep hills on my university’s Alpine Ski Team (yeah, there’s skiing in Ohio...) or lacing up my mornings with muddy-calved trail runs on the only loop in town. After diplomeating myself, I thru-hiked the A.T. (Freedom!), married the woman I had fallen face-first in love with (Family!), and transplanted us into SW New Mexico (Mountains!). I currently hike and climb in the half-dozen nearby mountain ranges, practice yoga with a goofily huge smile on my face, and cook lentils and kale about as much as I can get away with.

What's the weight?
Olukai logo on back. Notice stitching and how it allows for back to be folded down for wearing them as clogs. Einstein feature allows for multi-wearability.
I really like this harness because it's essentially the ruffwear approach pack sans side pockets. The harness is well constructed, stitching is strong, material is durable---typical ruffwear quality.
My dog is 30lbs and the SM fits her. I primarily bought this harness so that I can more easily/safely transport her up/down difficult terrain, and it is much better than having her carry an empty ruffwear approach pack when I'm doing all the carrying.
It's great for carrying your dog and shouldn't add to overheating during summer hikes given it's small surface area (compared to a pack).
One improvement: make it in more colors than red & grey.
WEIGHT = 2.26 oz

Good fit: I'm 6'3'' and 185lbs and the LRG fits me well.
The stitching is done well and the buttons and material are of quality. I nabbed this at discount, major score, but although this shirt may be intimidating at $79, given its durability, style, and the pride of supporting a responsible company, like Patagonia, this shirt still kicks even at full price. Darn Good Shirt.
I've worn these a few times now, but I'm really impressed with the quality of the stitching. The dark wood/mustang color is rich and looks good with jeans, slacks, or even sockless with shorts.
The clog feature is really nice for when I want to be a bit more informal or just quickly slip these on to tramp about.
The bottoms of these have a gnarly hawaiin tribal print and the side of the soles has a tiny olukai logo. The details are thoughtful with this shoe and although the leather, stitching, and quality warrant the price, the details are an added benefit.
The insole is really comfortable and supplies ample arch support. I normally use green superfeet insoles with all of my shoes and I won't need them with these given the superb factory insole.
I used these for about 20 nights before one of them snapped going into rocky ground. I could've been more careful, but I wasn't neglectful and the stake snapped clean in half while inserting it. Sides that, they're super light and functional.
The good is that they are light, offer multiple fitting options, provide great sound quality, and have a relatively sleek appearance.
My experience: I've always wanted a bluetooth headset, so when I got these I was super pumped because I'm on the phone roughly 3hrs/day for work. On my first day I put my old plug-in buds away and had these guys ready to go; first call comes and it's my boss, and the call doesn't connect properly. I couldn't get it to answer using the phones. After apologizing and explaining, I try again on my next call, same thing. Later that day I gave the instructions another read-through and then it worked out the next time.
My difficulty: Even still, I don't think the ON/OFF nor the sync functionality is clear for connecting via bluetooth. I never know when these things are ON/OFF and it's hard to tell how to connect them. I guess I just hold the button down for ten seconds and then hit connect on my computer, but it's not crystal.
Maybe I need to give these more patience, but for now, I stick to using them for running/working out, rather than work calls.
Just be aware that if you'll be hiking often on mostly ROCKY terrain, these guys may not hold up for more than 1 season. Burns me that I paid this price and didn't get more life, but the desert will do that to ya.
Is the Arc'teryx logo stitched or a decal?
