lots of room, simple to pitch and great looking. i was in the ansel adams wilderness in late Nov and the Losi withstood 60mph winds with 100+mph gusts. few times in the night as we lay awake hoping we were clear of "widow makers" the tent ceiling and walls were forced down into us from a strong gust of wind and popped back up. No breaks and it held steadfast. want an amazing stong 3 man tent, losi is it.

I ordered both the alp and mtn trainer. i wear a size eleven running shoe but ordered in a 10.5 and 11. i kept the 11 and so far couldn't be happier. the alp trainer seemed a bit narrow. i could easily roll my ankle, like another reviewer stated, the mtn trainer has more ankle support and seemed less likely to "roll" resulting in a tweaked ankle. i've taken them on 5 hikes ranging from 4-8 miles, two of which had an elevation gain of 1000ft in the first mile. No BLISTERS! Had to tighten em' up on the way down but they were great. These boots seem to improve with each subsequent hike. i'll be taking them up Mt. Baldy this weekend. im expecting the same result. if not, i'll update the review. i've had quite a few boots, asolo, vasque, lowes and kayland. these for my needs have been the best.

side note:

i purchased my wife a pair as well, albeit the womens version and she didn't like them. they felt narrow in the toebox.i then tried a mens size for her and they were "sloppy". so i guess they aren't for everyone. but best boot i've used so far.

Pack looks great and appears well made. loaded her up with about 18 lbs on 3 separate occasions and straps dug in pretty good.couldn't get the weight to shift to her hips properly, was uncomfortable after 1 mile. my wife put up with it for 5. thought maybe it just needed some adjusting. we tried everything. decided to return it and give the osprey aura a shot. slightly heavier but may carry a load better with it's aluminum frame. can only recommend this pack for light loads maybe up to 15lbs.

only taken it out a couple of times. so far it's been great. very bright and i like the adjustable presets. not as heavy as i expected. i don't get to use it as much as i like since the gf is always snagging it for bathroom breaks.
