These are really awesome! I would like to note that in some cases, well mostly my case, and a couple friends... you will need to break your foot into these if you plan on putting some serious backpacking miles on them. I've done over 20 miles in a single day with a pack, and paid for it the next day. Now, however... I can do that without any "next day" pain. These are also awesome for Disneyland!

Great boots... Tons of backpacking miles on them and they are still in great shape. The Gore-Tex is amazing and let's the feet breath very well. My only complaint is the sole. They have a great sole, but it's not Vibram. I've been to the top of Half Dome with these, and the climb up on the slick rock was perfect, so I guess it may not be that big of a down fall. Perfect boot though... Asolos are the best!

When choosing trekking poles, I usually go with something a bit strongger than the normal. With that being said, I decided to buy a men's pair of poles for my wife, and these seem to fit the bill well for her. She mostly uses poles for snowshoeing. For everyone's knowledge, these do not come with baskets... or, if they do... I did not get any. I ended up just buying a set of BD universal baskets for them. The "shock" thing is pretty cool, but I'm not too sure how helpful it is... My wife doesn't even notice them. She does really like the lower grip though.

I take my Nalgene with me everywhere. It's great for everyday, all day use. On our freezing cold Mountaineering trips, we fill it up with boiling hot water and toss it to the bottom of our sleeping bag for extra warmth. In the morning, or in the middle of the night, I have water that's not freezing cold. Buy one! Nuff said.

I love it. I now have the older 30 degree, and now this one. I love the weight of the bag, and the top zipper. The material seems pretty thin, but I have not had any trouble with my 30, so I'm guessing this will work just as well. I only sleep out under the stars with these bags, and with the weight savings on these super light down bags, I've somewhat turned into a very light backpacker. Love it! (I did get the bag on sale, thgouh)

I use this more for camp life, or taking a break on a snow field. I sleep on my side, and I'm a large man, so I tend to use this in conjunction with another air type pad. I've never tried this over night on its own, but laying on it around camp proves it would be a really bad nights sleep. Awesome for what it is... just not a true sleeping pad for me.

This little light is perfect for night time gathering of gear in your tent, or a alpine start. I've used it on a ton of mountaineering trips when there isn't any moon light or when you're trying to put on clothes early in the morning. A head lamp is really all you need, but this is truly a luxury item. Love it... 4 stars for battery life.

My 4 year old daughter loves this thing. Perfect size for her, and the added pocket for snacks is a huge plus. The only down fall is the bite valve. My daughter was sharing water with my 2 year old son. Within 5 minutes of use, my son bit all the way through the valve. The hose now leaks if the bite valve is turned on. Easy, and cheap fix... lesson learned.
