I live in Flagstaff, AZ where the weather will turn on you in a blink of an eye. This jacket does it all from completely blocking the wind to keeping you dry in light rain. It has a good look to it and I rock it down town all the time. I am 5'8" and about 175 lbs and the large fits well. It seems that the sizing is all over the board but I think that the large fits me well because I have a long torso and broad shoulders. I get a little bag in the arms but it gives me the room to layer. I love all the features and think that the only down fall is the lacking of an exterior chest pocket but I think I'll live. I highly recommend this jacket if you are willing to pay the price. Great for the outdoors when you don't know what the weather will do.

Just need to do your homework...the reason this knife is getting a bad overall rating is because some people didn't do their homework. There are 3 models of the Flash II. 2 have the aluminum handle and the third and cheapest has the zytel scratch and impact resistance plastic handle. All 3 knives have the AUS 8 steel, which in the grand scheme of things is good steel and holds an edge well. You just need to pay attention to which model you are getting so you know what to expect out of the box. I have the zytel model from SAC and I have been pretty happy with it so far. Its a little stiff out of the box but plenty sharp, just need a little breaking in. I don't mind the plastic handle because it really cuts down the weight of the knife. In my opinion, 4 stars, great knife for the price, good quality (made in USA) just not the best on the market. I would recommend this knife to anyone looking for a quality knife for daily or camping use.

I have an SD tent that was a best buy for me. I figured their sleeping bags were just as good. They proved me right, this bag is solid. I recently spent 4 strait nights in 29 degree weather and slept like a baby. The material on the inside is comfy, and the outside is pretty tough especially with the Drizone water proofing. The bag only got 4 stars because I seem to have trouble with the zipper. The zipper is reinforced but catches and has some trouble smoothly zipping all the way up. Besides the zipper trouble the draft tube is excellent, the bag is roomy and I would highly recommend it to anyone who need a good 3 season bag. Did i mention the Drizone water proofing? Good for protecting the down.

I gave this pack 4 stars because I wish the main pocket was just a little bigger. But, I have used this pack a lot and it is a great day trip bag. Over last summer I worked for a conservation corps and I used this pack for my chain saw bag. The MULE held my saw accessories,3L of water, a small first aid, a small lunch and some snacks. This bag is tough and I highly reccomend it!

I have had this pack for about 8 months now and it is great. The first 3 months of owning it I was doing conservation work in Flagstaff, AZ. I put the pack through hell. Because I was a sawer the pack was always holding 3L of water, all of my saw accessories, work tools, lunch, and a first aid kit. It was probably about 35lbs in it at all times if not a little more. Anyways it made it with only one rip from one of the teeth on my saw, hardly a defect. All in all, I Highly recommend this fast and light day pack.
