Yehuda Farkas's Bio

I'm into a wide variety of outdoor sports including cycling, skiing, and hiking. While I live in New York, I love getting out to Utah or VT for some good skiing.

I didn't buy this, but just used one a friend of mine owns, and let me borrow. It inflated easily, and seemed stable in the water. It did not feel as sturdy as a non-inflatable, but I used it in class 2 and it held up just fine. It doesn't have many of the luxuries of a non-inflatable, and it did get me wet, even in only minor waves. Thus, I feel this is a good product for its class, but I wasn't really impressed.

There is almost nothing bad I can write about this glove. It is super warm, and is very comfortable. Washes nice, especially after sweating for hours on end. Great for skiing, winter sports, and general-duty outdoor work. Fingers are a bit hard to move outside, but this is nothing new with good winter gloves. They look cool too! As mentioned by another reviewer, these are not expedition gloves for multiple-day, 8000m peaks! Good for regular-duty and even heavy duty, but not for extreme adventurers.

I used to have the csx until it got lost when my airline lost my suitcase. I bought this instead. It lacks the fancy features of the csx, and has about 1/2 the capabilities. I'm somewhat disappointed. This unit works well, and is easy to read, but is nothing fancy, nice and basic. It can be better.

This is a great navi tool, but somewhat useless for most people. If you're an outdoors man, afraid to use a GPS by itself, or just want another cool gadget, this is a top-of-the-line navigator. It really isn't too much greater in terms of accuracy or functionality than similar devices 1/2 it's price. My suggestion is to spend a bit less, and use the money on another gadget!

I had this altimeter, and was very happy with it. It was spot-on accurate, easy to use, and really looked nice on my bag during trips. It broke however after about 6 months after purchase, on maybe my tenth or eleventh trip with it, not by falling down a mountain or getting knocked around on a hike, but by hanging on the back of my pack during a long ski day in Maine on a ridiculously cold day. Beware-don't bring this into -20 temps!

I keep these in my first-aid kit. I also keep them in my office, car, and at home. They are great, not only for trail scrapes, but for minor cuts (including those nasty paper cuts), rashes, and any type of nasty skin condition that's relatively minor and which can use some protection. If you are not into band aids, these are a great alternative. Really helps soothe and limit inflammation. Highly recommended.

This stuff does work! I bought a bottle of this for "emergency" purposes, and tested it out to see if it really worked. It does. Goes in through the valve stem in a pinch, and sets quickly. It will quickly fix a tire, and get you going. It however leaves your tires out-of-plum, and generally calls for them to be replaced anyways. This just prevents you from getting caught out in the middle of nowhere. Worth keeping in that emergency bag.

I got this tape for a spare bike I don't use too much, and which I keep in a weatherproof outdoor shed. I put on the tape and was really impressed. After a few months though noticed the tape cracking. It wasn't even winter! I should write the company for a refund! Not recommended unless this was just a fluke or a bad batch.

This bad boy is awesome. Really light, easy to install if you do this stuff enough, and super powerful. Good ratio between your top and bottom gears. I have only had very smooth transitioning between gears, with very little kick-back if I shift too quickly. Highly recommended but pricey, especially for a shimano crankset system.

This stuff works super fast to seal holes and get you back on the road. Although it is small and lightweight, you sometimes need to pack a lot of this in to get good sealing. I have found however that regular car sealant for car tires works the same, though many would disagree with this. Does require a permanent sealing when you can get the job done right. This is a great product for emergencies to keep in an emergency bag however.

This bag is really not designed for the backcountry or for heavy travel. It's great for city or cit-suburban travel. I bought the bag to carry books, a computer, papers, and daytime things (brown bag lunch, tissues, etc.) and it has been amazing. The fold over snaps keep the lid secure, and the outer material is a heavyweight and durable synthetic. The bag has many pockets that easily store and organize everything you might be carrying. The shoulder strap is really comfortable, and feels quite secure. This is great as a school bag, work bag, or for daytime use.

This is a very lightweight, soft, and cozy blanket. It really helps make a trip more comfortable. The blanket is light, very light however-so you still need to wear a sweater or other warm clothing underneath. My niece found this, and now adores it too. Seems to be a great baby blanket. Has held up well after numerous washings, and has not piled.

I haven't seen any liners like this in any of the major children stores (like Children's Place, Gap Kids, or the like). I know some of the major ski/winter clothing dealers have kids gloves (North Face, Spyder) but I have not seen this particular product in children's sizes. I would try LLBean who might have something close.

This stuff really removes wax well. I would recommend for most skis and boards. Clean your bases first with a base cleaner, than use this stuff to strip the wax. Just don't do this right after your skis or boards come off the hill. This stuff works better when everything is nice and toasty warm. Good product overall. Does smell a bit.

These really clean up those dirty, rusty bases. I had to use this a couple times after I put away my skis last season. Overall though, works great. I actually tried this stuff on my boots, and it worked great to get out some of the scratches and that scum that builds up on them. Good product. Really works. Doesn't smell too much.

These are great baskets. They really push off, even on really light Utah fluff. Not as great on very hard pack, ice, or crud. Recommended for the American West, not for the East. Fit's my BD back country poles easily, and slides right on. Great as a replacement for those nicked and worn baskets.
