These phones sound good and are much more comfortable inside a helmet all day than ear buds. The only problem is that the twin tip system is not 100% compatible with the iPhone and Spotify music app. I found myself constantly switching between the two tips, depending upon whether I wanted to make a phone call or listen to tunes. There is no doubt a certain degree of user error involved here but I'm of the generation that is spoiled by Apple's ability to make intuitive products that "just work" right out of the box. This product is not intuitive.

I bought these water shoes to wet wade while fly fishing. They have the same "Spider Rubber" as Teva's collaborative effort with Orvis. They do grip fairly well and will be much greener than felt soles. I chose this low-top version instead of the Orvis wet wading shoe because I liked the easy, pull cord lace system and the heel that converts to a clog for wear around the campsite. However, these low-top shoes attract pebbles inside like steel to a magnet. I spent the whole weekend draining the pebbles out of my shoes. The pull-cord laces are not elastic (unlike the Merrill options), so they DO NOT come on and off easily. The shoes also ran a full size small for me (I usually wear a 10 and sent back two pairs before settling on a pair of 11s).
"Bottom Line:" Nobody marketed these shoes as fly fishing, wet wading shoes ~ perhaps because they aren't. However, they miss the mark completely as wading shoes, IMHO, because gravel, sand, rocks, and everything else will collect inside the shoe.

Great cook set. Used it for the first time last weekend in the NM Pecos Wilderness backcountry. This set is heavier and bulkier than some others, which can be an issue with backpacking. However, the functionality outshined the added weight/volume for me. I used the skillet as my plate for most meals, which worked great. The removable handle for the skillet and pot caused the skillet to be tipsy on my MSR stove until I got more weight into the skillet. This creates yet another opportunity to dump your meal onto the ground, so take care. Keep in mind also that the Teflon coating means you can't use metal silverware or highly abrasive cleaning pads. Highly satisfied.

These boots are among the lightest and most comfortable I've ever worn. They fit well, right out of the box with the exception that the intergrated tounge tended to fold inside one of the boots ackwardly until it got broken in. These boots are so good-looking, I hated to wear them outside for fear of scuffing them. I quickly got over that, though. Highly recommended.
