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.

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.

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 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 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!

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 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.

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 had an old Toko grinding stone, and bought this one when I lost my old one. Works very well. Doesn't crack or peel off too much, and got my bases and edges nice and smooth. Removed those rusty spots really well. Also great to soothe out nicks and burs in those edges. Did not stain my skis like some of those dyed stones do.

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.

This is an excellent lock. I bought it to lock my skis, poles, and equipment at ski resorts. The flexible cord easily goes around all of these, and secures my equipment tightly to prevent theft. This lock is also great as a substitute to other bulkier locks, especially for luggage or on the go, such as when you leave your luggage for temporary storage. Easy to control combo control. Cord is a bit thin though for more permanent storage.

I had a pair of gloves 2x the price that were nothing on these. They are comfortable, and really provide excellent traction on rope and equipment. Dirty, wet, or dusty ropes are no problem for these. I haven't washed them yet, so I don't know how much grip or security I will loose, but for the price, I'm really pleased.

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.
