found these on clearance at a local store for $35, and even though my chaco unaweep sandals weren't ever all that comfortable, i tried these on and instantly loved them. i'm a big flip flop guy, and am used to paying ~$40 for reefs, but when i tried these on, i knew i'd found my sandal. they fit so snug, and support my arch in a way other flops never did. i have been wearing the heck out of them. they just came up on S&C for a fantastic price so i just bought another pair in another color.

before this tent i tried out the seedhouse (not SL), which i bought cheap off SandC. i loved it; well made, just big enough length-wise, and super simple to put up. but it just didn't have enough vestibule room for two people's packs, so i returned it and bought this instead. it's the same quality, the weight is nice and the fit is good, but because of the cross over pole design it has an annoyingly large footprint. i took it backpacking in the Wa.'s north cascades and it was hard to squeeze it in to the locations we were camping at. i'll be holding onto it, cause it is a perfect car camping tent, but for backpacking, i'm looking for something else.

well made, for sure, and i like the styling a lot, but this pack keeps failing tests for me. i originally bought it as a day pack for travel, but because it's so high on the top, you can't wear it on your stomach. then i thought i'd at least use it for bike riding, to replace my messenger bag, but alas, it's too high for that too and kept forcing my head forward. and as another reviewer said, the front pocket has a lot of little mini pockets, but stuff won't stay in them and you're inevitably faced with a gumbo of little things upon arrival. not only that, but because it's not actually a proper section, but just a division of the main compartment, when you have the pack stuffed, the outside pocket gets smashed flat, making it hard to load and basically worthless. i do really like the fit though, although the usefulness of a regular old bookbag type backpack would trump this thing.
