I fit a half size up on TNF Boots from my Merrells and pumas and adidas and Salomon and Keen footwear. But i don't own any b/c i am between sizes. 10.5 is too small and 11 is too big in TNF
The 10.5 was a little more snug than i am used to. I have a bit wider than standard feet and would go a half size up due to width issues, but i should mention i don't own these. Just tried them on.
They will probably be good. But if i was hiking said trail I would look for something with a vibram sole and goretex depending on bridge status and time of year. Definitely give them a good break in period before you go no matter the footwear you choose.
They would work fine, but you would be crazy hot below the tree line. Save these for Alpine pursuits and look elsewhere for your backpacking adventures. These are overkill. I wear Merrell Perimeter GTX when it is too cold for vibram5fingers
No. And anyone that tells you it does is either a liar or works for Columbia.

presumably, they ski there
the Double Deluxe is 20inches longer and weighs 7oz more than the Double Nest.
i would contact camelbak's customer service department and get them to replace it rather than buying replacement parts. i had a better bottle that did the same thing, and they sent me a free one. the problem was the replacement leaked too. i just decided that the "better bottle" is in fact the "worser bottle" and moved on.
i have never seen one. i think that with as deep as the teeth are, if you tried to sharpen the other side you would just snap it in half on 1st use. plus, i am not sure that i would have any use for a semi-flexible knife blade.
i dont know anything about these shoes, but saw your comment about wearing vibrams. i have the same philosophy. i wear kinda similar shoes by Born, when i cant get away with wearing vibrams...check born stewie and kilbury models...they are nothing more than leather sewn to a piece of flat/neutral rubber.
the dimemsions for that blade are 10x10.75 inches. the pack dimensions are 19.5 x 12 x 6.5 inches. it should fit, but i havent personally tried it.
have had of similar glasses from more than a few brands in a variety of price ranges. i have yet to find a brand that does not get loose and rattly over time. i wouldnt trust this $60 pair to do any better. spy worked the best and longest for me, but the ones i still wear are no longer manufactured.
same weight, same material. (backcountry's desciption is wrong for both). the material is Marmot M3 Softshell (90% Nylon, 10% elastane). the tioga has an integrated belt, scuff guards on the ankles, and is more athletically cut. scree is a looser fit and lacks the scuff guards and belt (but has belt loops). hope that helps
held up well after a few heavy extended uses. these are good for me to down around freezing. i wish they were either longer or shorter. they come a couple inches above my ankle. i like calf length or no show socks, but at the 18 chucks i paid for 3pair off SAC, i am not complaining. decent socks at a good price, but they are not smartwool. so dont be fooled and pay smartwool prices for them!
got this jacket of SAC for 89. i am relatively happy with it at that price point. would not pay the 185 full retail. It is warm enough as a mid-layer, but not as warm as a circumferencially insulated jacket would be. without the polyester/elastane sides, i feel it would be much warmer, but they vent pretty well if you plan on wearing this thing on the move. wore it down into the windy 20s (windchill in the single digits) as a mid layer (1 of 4 layers total) and was not cold. 6'3" 220, and fit a midweight long sleeve icebreaker and a midweight merino halfzip under with a windstopper softshell over with no problems. i will say like others have said, that it does not seem up to the material quality that i am used to getting from Mountain Hardwear; just a gut feeling...its not falling apart or anything and has no scuffs or snags in a couple outings. Got the XL.
overall impression: the Zonal is a decent, lightweight, compressible, insulated jacket for mildly to moderately cold temperatures. is it worth 90 chucks? probably. is it worth 185? no. would i use this as a winter alpine layer? no.
the prodcut description is incorrect...you can open a beer bottle with a nail. I have done it. belt is good. its a belt.
i wear a 7 3/8 fitted hat and always go with the large/XL on stretch fit hats
noted, but that is not a question.
