What is the inseam on these shorts?
I love the outdoors.
What is the inseam on these shorts?
What are the loops for up by the chin area?
Do you sell the adapters to mount GoPros on the lid?
How well does this hold up in wet weather? If I have my phone in the slash pocket during a wet ride is it going to stay dry?
What is the length of the inseam on a 36" waist pair?
How well will these boots shed mud?
I love Keen Newport sandals. This is my second pair for myself. My four kids have all been through a dozen or more over the years also. They are versatile and comfortable. You can't beat these for almost any occasion.
We've been through several TNF Triclimate jackets over the years with four kids. They are always great. You can't beat 3 jackets for the price of 1. We've typically gone with the fleece liner, but my son wanted synthetic insulation this time, so we gave this a try. It fits great and keeps him extra warm.
I've purchased several of these casual button shirts; from Columbia, The North Face, Royal Robbins, etc. This Borderline shirt from Arc'teryx is the most comfortable. The fit is superb. It's trim, yet still moves perfectly without pulling at all. I would definitely recommend this shirt to others.
I'm used to Coleman tents with the thick tarp-like floors but am looking to make a major upgrade. How do these floors hold up with shoes walking on them, and also cots placed inside?
Just got this for Christmas this year and am extrememly impressed. It works great as a standalone piece and I also use it under my Venta SV shell. Kept me warm but not sweaty with a base layer in 15� weather during quite a bit of physical activity. Can't wait to take it out some more!
I got this for my son to carry some of his own gear for our backpack trip this year, and also to use in the fall for school. It's not big enough to carry everything he needs, but that would weigh too much for him anyway. So this is a perfect compromise. Big enough to fit a bit of gear, but manageable enough to keep the weight down. The compression straps are great, keeping everything secure. The bungee storage works great for a light rain jacket. My only complaint: it's not actually hydration compatible. There is a laptop sleeve inside that you can put a bladder in, but no clip to keep it upright, and fitting a hose through the tiny headphone slot is impractical unless you remove the nipple and insert the hose before you fill up the bladder. Either way, it still works, and is comfortable for him to carry around.
I have been looking for a backpack to serve a dual purpose, outdoor recreation and a school bag. Is this bag wide enough to fit a full-size textbook in the main compartment?
I love these sandals. I have some. All of my kids now have them. This is the second pair for one of my daughters. They are a perfect, all-around sandal for school, play, day hikes, etc. As far as the Newport vs the Newport 2, these are still the original Newport sandals, just with a velcro strap on top. The Newport H2 sandals have an enclosed heel also. I wish they made them without the velcro strap, but you have to have older, bigger kids for that style anymore. With that being said, the velcro strap is still better than any alternative sandal in my opinion. They are extremely durable. The previous sandals are in use by the second and third daughters, and still looking good. I would definitely recommend these sandals over and over again to anyone.
Is the inner pocket waterproof? I need to find a good shell that has a completely secure/waterproof pocket for my iphone. Last winter I ruined a phone with it in a chest pocket when it became soaked from my own perspiration. Nothing got in from the outside, but the pocket wasn't protected from the inside-out. Any idea if there is a pocket suitable on this jacket for an electronic device?
I bought this to replace a TNF waterproof jacket. The exact name escapes me right now. Anyway, this jacket has a much better fit. It is tighter around the body, but that is preferable. The major differences include the waterproof zippers, the lack of exterior draft flaps for the core vents to reduce weight and make more effective, the higher hand pockets to facilitate use while wearing a pack, the use of actual Gore-Tex material, and the fully adjustable hood. This jacket is far superior. It is super light and does not let anything through. I don't think it would breathe too well in a hot and humid climate, but in Northern Utah this jacket works perfectly.
Does anyone have any issues with the spork closing on it's own while in use? Other brands have had complaints about the spork folding under the weight of food. I want to get these so they fit in my cooking set, but am not sure about the folding idea.
Sure this unit is a little pricey, but you can't beat it for accuracy. The stronger antenna helps keep accurate information even in deep canyons and under a lot of tree cover. The multiple buttons make it easy to navigate to different areas of the unit. I couldn't be happier.
I don't think this would be a great lamp to hike with, but for around camp it would be fine. I use it primarily for photography and geocaching. The red cover is great for both, as I generally only have the light on when I need to search through my bag. If you're looking to go night hiking in it, I would recommend a different lamp.
