David's Bio

Outdoor pursuits include mountain biking, backpacking, road cycling, and wintersports like snowshoeing and skiing.

I travel a fair amount and am lucky to go to some interesting places.

I do quite a lot of photography and video work (semi professional) and I have the great fortune to work with most of the very best Canon gear.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs large

These are?essentially?thin, light, waterproof, attractive running Crocs. So that basically makes them perfect for:

-- water shoes
-- camp shoes (only 4 oz!) for backpacking
-- a "spare" set of shoes during travel

Long story short they are very light and very comfortable, so any situation where you need those elements in a shoe make these a good choice..

(Make sure to size down. I dropped two euro sizes from 43 to 41 and they are perfect. The reason why is that this company sells this shoe in another version that has an insert, which takes up some room, but these "pure" versions lack the insert.)

Depending on what you're doing, you might really want to consider just using an iPhone in a waterproof case. I'm a photographer and while I don't do that many watersports, I know that when I do I really struggle with handling anything too big.

I find that underwater in particular you're going to suffer for light--and unless you've bought a much better lens for your t4i than the stock one, then the iPhone is going to give you better low-light performance. Also, you're probably carrying your phone anyway, need to waterproof it... etc.

If your dog is small, you might consider a single man kayak.

I just picked up a kayak myself, and I will say that seeing them in person goes a long way to helping decide which one.

If you are planning on going any distance, you might consider a touring kayak (whereas this one really is a recreational kayak..)

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I have a few TwinSix jerseys. I like them best of all the brands I've tried. The material is soft, stays cool, and the cut is a little more forgiving for those of us with a little extra baggage up front.

This particular jersey is just good looking without being flashy. Really like it.
