Absolutely love this tent. Now that we have kiddos and don't backpack anymore, we needed a family tent and wanted room for luxury. Two cots, two kids on sleeping pads, and room for all gear, and tons of room to stand up and change. Holds up well in wind and rain (no leaks under fly, despite whipping winds), cold nights in Yellowstone were warm enough, hot nights in southern Utah were cool enough. Easy to set up. Couldn't be happier.

Mom suffers from Reynaud's syndrome (extremely cold fingers) and has never had gloves that keep her warm enough. She lives in Kansas City, which has wicked cold because of wind and humidity. She has called twice to tell me how much she loves these gloves that I bought for her. Mom endorsed - what more do you need?

My take - super soft, and quite warm for a fleece glove. Keep in mind - it's a fleece glove - no wind stopper, no moisture resistance. Probably great for ladies around town, but I would recommend a mitt shell over these for any real outdoor activity like skiing, sledding, snowball fighting.

These boots almost read my mind - the slightest thought of initiating and these boots are there. Super tight heel, so no jumping forward if you catch some boot drag through deeper snow. Super stable at speed (no surprise, it's a Lange) and quick and responsive through bumps and steeps. Love the 100 width and little extra room for the toes.

Wow. These are big. And bad. And fast. These have a pretty traditional shape - none of that elf-shoe looking rocker going on here. If you know how to drive a big ski and appreciate the elegance and control of putting a ski up on edge and laying down rails wherever you are (no schmearing this one), you'll love this ski. It's wide, so not super fast edge to edge (be patient!), but it floats like nothing else and it is really responsive. And if you are part of the Air Force hucking off whatever - forget about scoping out your landing. You're bringing many square feet of landing pad with you, so you can land anything.

Excellent super light, super packable, form fitting, no flapping wind jacket. Has been perfect with just a short sleeve jersey at dusk in the fall on the Crest Trail and with a long sleeve jersey at 45 degrees in the AM in November in Moab. Couldn't be happier. But be warned - it's true to size, but very form fitting (hence, no flapping).
