Sweet boots
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I took these out of the box, put them on and day hiked Mt Whitney - 20+ miles. No blisters! Since then I have done tons of other hikes, both winter and summer. They performed just as well and are super comfortable. Money well spent. I wear a medium weight hiking sock and sock liners with these.

Boundary Peak Winter Blizzard Ascent
5 5

It was below zero at the beginning of the hike with windchill and the Catalyst performed excellently, couldn't be happier with it. It's so light that I don't mind taking it on other hikes with there is a slight chance that I will need it. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light/warm jacket that can stuff into its own pocket.

In the Sierras with my Cap
5 5

I love this hat even though my wife says I look dorky in it. The material on the side is super breathable. It feels great when there is a slight breeze blowing through that material and onto the shading area of your neck, even better if it's wet like a portable swamp cooler. The hat performs very well in the desert. Then to make it even better the skirt is removable, which is nice when it's super windy. It is not fun having skirt blowing all over you face. The skirt can be easily stuffed into a pant pocket without adding any discomfort.

This is my first mountaineering boot so I have nothing to compare it to except trail hiking boots that I have previously own. When I put on this boot for the first time, I felt like if I stomped too hard on the ground that I would put a hole in my floor. The soles are nice a stiff, perfect for kicking steps in the snow and walking through a rock fall. These boots are really nice off trail and when climbing. I would recommend this boot to anyone looking for a good deal on mountaineering boot. It has solid construction and rigid soles.

Portable, Light, and Powerful Lantern.
5 5

This lantern is very small and light. It's perfect for hiking trips. I haven't had any issues with it so far. I bought the messed screen for it but that doesn't work very well when there is alot of wind out. The glass screen that it comes with is very strong. I don't imagine that piece of glass breaking very easily. It isn't as bright as my coleman lantern that runs off propane but its really close. Also i notice that the light that it puts off is more yellow then a propane lantern. So basically, if you are looking for a portable, light, and powerful lantern. Then the Snow Peak is the one for you.

Edit: On my last camping trip i had a small rip on one side of the mantel. That caused a hot spot on the glass melting and cracking the glass. So be careful and change the mantel when needed. I know that on other lanterns that isn't a critical but on this one since it so small you really need to pay attention. Though on the brightside that mantel lasted me most of the summer, that was my first/original mantel.
