Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size

I ordered these in the High Rise Grey/Beach Glass Green. They are much lighter (almost white) than pictured and have minimal arch and ankle support. They feel kind of "flat". I can't imagine running in these or even walking in them for very long unless your feet are very healthy.

The main material reminds me of that from a tent. I will be returning them.

Be aware that this has no direct wall pump. The pump is a 6 volt battery pack (not repairable and maybe not replaceable). You must charge it 12 hours before every use per Kelty and maintain in between uses.

I have lost the electrical charger and am now trying to get more information to find a replacement (after one use). It is a lot of money to have few options to air the mattress up.

Otherwise adequate for it purpose.

I purchases the queen mattress and after one use have misplaced the AC charger for the pump. (No teenagers are fessing up!) I found a picture of it on Rei but can't make out the output in volts on the adapter so I can charge the battery pump using a universal adapter.
What is the output in volts and mA for the wall charger?
Do you sell replacement chargers?
Does Kelty have a regular electrical wall charger that can be purchased that doesn't have to be charged TWELVE HOURS before each use? That would make a lot of sense!

I am now questioning the investment into a product that seems doomed to fail in time. :(

These have very LITTLE arch support -- almost flat! They run a bit short in length but wider than normal. I don't think they are comfortable even walking around my house so can't imagine hiking in them especially for this price! Returning these.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these to use as shoes for flat-pedal mountain biking and love them. They are very well made shoes and a bit heavier but that gives me the extra push I need to get up those hills. As my grandfather used to say "they are sturdy". :)

I had tried other trail-running shoes from Patagonia and Merrell and they did not give enough support or strength in pedaling and the occasional "hiking" up the harder hills.

If you are using these for running you may find them a bit heavy but for mountain biking I think they are perfect for me.

Gave 4 stars instead of 5 because the sole of these shoes DO stink like so many of the athletic shoes that are made these days. I store them outside or in the garage.

Good job Lowa!

I ordered this not only for holding the bike up in the garage but also as a possible repair stand to wash my mountain bike and do some minor repairs. I didn't want to expend the money for a full blown repair stand at this time and I think it will work for my needs.

I had some trouble getting it to open up because the botton "release" is a bit difficult to use. I think the manufacturer could do a better job with this part of the stand, thus my reason for only 4 stars. Finally was able to yank it open hard and it worked very well.

I have several pairs of gloves from Louis Garneau and this was my least favorite. The thumbhole has no "give" and is very difficult to remove. Also the seam over the back of the hand is very irritating when you bend you hand into a fist because it runs small. I returned and got the less expensive LG "carbon" pair that I have in another color that is really comfortable.

I wear a L/XL in regular shorts. Ordered the XL and they were so long that I almost tripped on them but I am short. The material, workmanship is good but the overall design is weird with a normal back fit and a very low, wide band in the front that reminds me of maternity wear. I like things to fit on my waist. If you are at least average height and don't mind the low front then you might like them. Definitely going back!
