You can fit a 15 in laptop in there, just not in the designated laptop sleeve. I love chrome and I think if you wanted a bag from them that is still pretty small but will fit your laptop in the sleeve I would check out the link bellow. If you have any other questions feel free to contact me. My email is skdavis@backcountry.com

I have a size 40 solutions and 41.5 in the quantums. I feel they are a little too tight. I would recommend a 42 in these. If you want to email me I can see what price I can get you on these and if you wanted to order a couple different sizes with me I can offer a free return label for the size that doesn't fit. My email is skdavis@backcountry.com

The 12 foot tenkara rod is 22 inches collapsed, the rod is 3.3 oz box is 5.5 oz and the tube is 5.6 oz.
The 13 foot is also 22 inches collapsed but is 3.7 oz and the tube is 5.6 oz the box is 5.5. the only difference is going to be the rod weight

5 5

The minimum length to meet State Park guide requirements is 50 feet. The actual rope length of this rope is 50 feet but with the knots tied it is 46 feet. Astral designed this rope to be a secondary throw bag that will fit in the pocket of the GreenJacket. I would recommend having a primary throw bag and this one as a back up. A great add of especially if you are picking up the GreenJacket. Bellow is a link to that jacket.

I would stick with a size 7 in these or size up to a 7.5. The shoes are made of leather so they will break in and stretch out a bit. I am able to set up an order with 2 sizes and offer a free return label for the size once you let me know what one you want to return. If you are interested in doing that, then email me directly at skdavis@backcountry.com and we can go from there.

Antonio!! So I contacted my homie David from Petzl and this is the info he gave me. The new Sama moved the stitching in the waist belt to the top so it doesn't rub. The padding in the waist was increased and replaced the mesh. The color changed from orange to red obviously and the sizing is slightly different. All dimensions can be found here:

Hey Johnathan! So these and the Evolv Cruzer shoes are very similar in design. These shoes do have a little more rigidity, they hold there shape a little better. The cruzer is made of a cotton canvas and if I don't want to put them on all the way the back folds down really easy and I can wear it more like a slipper. I like the microfiber lining in the cruzer too, it allows me to wear them without socks and not have them smell like death. Because if I am too lazy to put them on all the way when going from one boulder to the next, then I sure as heck don't have time to put socks back on. The splice also comes with an anti odor treatment to help fight off the stench. This is going to be a great approach shoe and it will be more sturdy or just hold its shape better then the cruzer. The cruzer is insanely light. I prefer the rubber that is used on the cruzer too. It has a little better grip. If you want more of a sturdy shoe with awesome rubber I would go with one of the shoes bellow. Just click the link to view.

The difference between those two is the Geshido's have a higher asymmetrical curve which provides more power and edging and is great for overhangs/roofs. The Bandit is also made of synthetic material where as the Geshido's are leather. The Leather will stretch out much more when broken in and sythetic doesnt' really stretch at all. I personally prefer leather, I really like the feeling of a shoe that naturally molds to my foot. Both are great shoes but the Geshido's are just a little more aggressive.
