Okay, i've finally put this bag to... somewhat of a test. I've owned this bag for 3 years, but my most recent trip finally provided my with some cold-ish weather. I estimate around 15 degrees F. Wow... i was SO comfortable. I mean... WOW. I do sleep a little warm, but nonethelesss, i was at PERFECT temp, almost warm.
Washing of bag-use a front loader machine (I airdry, but that's not generally required)
Wear of item- despite the fact that most of my camping is way too warm for this bag, i've used it at least 25 times in last 3 years. Bag looks brand new.
MOST IMPORTANT QUALITIES- i LOVE THE STRETCH QUALITY! i sit "indian style" all the time in this bag. i can dress/undress with bag fully zipped.... wow. awesome. Also the cinch off footbox... amazing.

cons-bag is rather heavy/bulky. that happens though when you have this kind of extreme comfort. it's not overly bulky/heavy. just more than others on average.

personal info- i'm 6 foot, 185 lbs, sleep warm, bought reg size.

I bought this about a year ago, and... it's still on time, so that's good. Course, we live in the 20th... uh... excuse me, 21st century so i would expect nothing less. As for other things you expect from a watch, i've never had a problem with waterproof-ness (except, see after my accident) but i really never go below about 15 feet of water. the thing looks as new as it did the day i bought it (again, accident). This watch is TOUGH. On that note, i may as well discuss my big accident. So, i'm a rock climber. One day at the gym i tried a big dyno that was out of my league. I missed horribly and SMASHED the face of my watch on the hold. I'm pretty sure any other watch would have been ruined. This guy? Oh this guy took a lickin' but kept on tickin! Unfortunately, I caught it right on the edge of the glass (or whatever it is) face and chipped it up a little. Please understand, this thing WORKS LIKE A CHAMP, but because of the unfortunate placement of impact... i get a LITTLE fog in the display when i get the watch wet. That's it folks, a tiny chip and some foggy-ness... and any other watch would have been destroyed.
SOLID PRODUCT!

dang... that's a lot of money for a pair of boots. But not so much when you figure in the fact that you'll never buy another pair in your lifetime.

seriously... these things are bulletproof. wait... not like, TOTALLY seriously... don't shoot yourself... i meant... ahhh, whatever. Go ahead and try it, post pics after seeking medical attention.

This is not your average hangboard! Please note the description- "for mid-level and higher skilled climbers"

I own two hangboards, this one is for when i'm feelin EXTRA frisky. The slopers are sweet, you can pick how much you wanna punish yourself. Put your hands straight on top and it's easy. Closer to the face and you're gonna get a workout.

The edges vary greatly, top rung is great for a burnout set of pullups, bottom rung... well, you better start there while you're fresh.

THE PINCHES- this is what i really love about this hangboard, not offered on my other (big brand name) version. Two different sizes. I love doing lockoffs on these pinches. or pullups. or just staring at them in defeated awe.

note- as seems to be true for most so ill holds, this hangboard is very gritty. It will tear up your hands a little. But hey, quit bein' a puss. builds character.


make sure you've got a good mount for this thing, you're gonna need it.

Don't buy these pants.... You're sure to want more.
These khakis are WAY out of my price range. I won my pair in a rock climbing comp, otherwise i'd never have been spoiled by this luxury.

durability- Only had them for a day now, so can't speak much for durability, but... i'm optimistic. these things feel bulletproof.

style- Sort of a "rich guy that wants to play outside" look. Classy, outdoorsy, i'm gonna wear them to church then go for a day hike (or more).

Fit- a little tight in the waist and a little long in the inseam. Or maybe i'm just fatter and shorter than i believe myself to be.

Price- ridiculous

comfort- ridiculous (in a good way)

note- the yellowstone color, or whatever it's called, is a LITTLE lighter than what i see on my computer screen. Maybe i should play with my resolution? maybe backcountry has a bad picture? dunno. My opinion, look around at different pictures on the web, they vary quite a bit.

Final note- if you have too much money to be bothered with normal people clothes, buy these pants, it's a darn fine product. I feel important when i wear them.

THANK YOU MOUTAIN KHAKI FOR SPONSORING OUR CLIMBING COMPETITION!

The padded handle is nice if you've got a stubborn puppy like i do. The locking carabiner is a little overkill; have you ever known your dog to work your regular carabiner? Does it really need to be a LOCKING carabiner? But whatever, it's certainly not hurting anything.

At first i was dissapointed that it didn't have a swivel end like most leashes, so it gets twisted up a lot, but then i realized... uh... it doesn't matter. so the leash is twisted, again, it's not hurting anything.

Cool looking leash, perfectly functional, LOVE the way you can adjust the length. In the end, you've just gotta decide if $30 bucks is really worth it for a dog leash. I mean, it didn't TRAIN my dog for me.

These pants are GREAT for those days you hafta ditch the shorts due to dress code. They're lightweight (like others have said), they're just fancy enough that you could wear them to dinner with your gal', and if you catch them on steep and cheap the price is right! Although, i just might pay full price for these, which is really sayin something; I'm a cheap college rat.

The only problem i have is that they don't make them in specific length sizes! ARGH i hate that! I'm 6 foot, fairly long legged and they're just a smidge short. I suppose for the average 6 footer they'd be okay, but if you've got gangly legs at all, you'll run into the same problem. such a bummer. OH, and the waist runs a LITTLE big. They sag on my butt, gotta start holding my glock sideways.

Despite the fit issues, i'd buy them again, they're that comfortable. (and stylish, in my opinion)

I love writing reviews. When i get something great, i let the world know. When i get something bad, i'll shout it out. This pair of shorts is.... just.... a pair of shorts.

I don't regret buying them because i got a great deal on them. Had i paid full price i'd be a little disapointed. They're a solid pair of shorts, there's really nothing wrong with the fit, the material, durability (far as i can see, only had them couple weeks) or style according to my own personal preference. But were i to pay the list price of 65 bucks... i'd expect a Latte dispenser in the pocket, or a euro-dollar money exchanger, or... something....

Buy them if you need a pair of shorts and you find them on sale. You won't be dissapointed, but you won't be wow'd.

BTW, i bought a size 34 waist- i'm 6 foot, average build through midsection and they're quite loose, gotta wear a belt. A previous review said they were tight in the legs, i can imagine that would be true if i didn't have the teeniest little chicken legs you ever saw. So, large through the waist, probably small in the legs. Show off those bulging quads.

These are amazing. Comfort is through the roof. Lots of secret stash pockets without looking like your headed on an african safari. The material is really soft... strangely so. Hope it stays that way after i wash them. I bought the wrong size, so my pair is a little large (MY OWN FAULT, they run true to size, MAYBE a little tight in the waist compared to others) but i still plan on wearing them every chance i get.

World- get ready to see my crack, these pants are too comfortable to give up simply cause my bum hangs out!

I haven't been able to put this to the test in the field yet due to a deployment, but i'd say a deployment is just as demanding on gear as field use. This is the perfect first layer. Never excessively warm. VERY comfortable. Thought the high collar with zipper would bother my neck but didn't even NOTICE. Don't expect to wear this alone as your warmth layer in freezing temps. I wear it day and night.
