I think it is fair to say there is a lot of skepticism that goes around when it comes to "high tech" socks. Most people just think "socks are socks".......Most people are very wrong my friends. Wicks moisture super fast. Does not over heat the feet on extremely hot days. You can use them multiple time with out washing them thanks to the marino fabric and anti-order propers that are naturally found in marino wool, and the fit that is gives you foot is optimal. Just try one pair, what have you got to loose? You can always return them right?

This was my first of many products from Western Mountaineering, and certainly not my last. Excellent craftsmanship due to the precise stitching and evenly distributed 850 fill down. Western Mountaineering takes exceptional pride in making their products perform and last. This bag compresses into a medium sized sea to summit compression sack and is very true to its temperature ratings. I strongly recommend you try out Western Mountaineering if you want something that will last and outperform any other.

As everyone has a different foot ultimately has different shoe comfort preferences, I strongly believe they should at least give the wildcat 2.0 gtx a try. Excellent quality sole and perfect combination between stiffness and comfort. Almost feel nothing while on the trails as you are running over small rocks, twigs, etc... With all that being said, it is gore-tex sir you can bet they are 100% waterproof up to the top of the shoe.

I have tried them all-Timex, garmin, Tom Tom, phone apps and they all are not as accurate nor consistent. This watch has almost everything any athlete(runner, bicyclist, swimmer, or mountaineer) can ask for. It is extremely well built with a high resolution screen as well as buttons that feel reliable and long lasting when you push them. The altimeter is the most accurate of any watch I have very used because it uses GPS as well and it's air pressure sensor.

In addition the what the description says about this product, I have found that western mountaineering is one of the very few companies out there that is true to their ratings, specs, and quality assurances. Being one of the best fitted down jacket by WM, the flash xr is by far the best down jacket on the market. Pricy it is, but unbeatable by performance and quality. Highly recommended.

If you are used to the typical cotton or thin ASIC's running socks you will be in for a surprise. I ran cross country for over a year using typical cotton socks and then for another 4 years with the nice $15.00 Asic's thin runners socks. The primary problem I had was moisture build up and comfort. Then the asids took take of the moisture part and were a bit more comfy. The only problem I have from the asics was the odor control. Then I finally gave smart wool a try. As soon I I slipped them on I felt a tremendous difference and they took off from there. Excellent breathability, excellent warmth or cooling abilities, and no odor even when I whore them for 5 consecutive days running.

I purchased these pants not too long ago and they are by far the best quality, warmest, and amazing fit down pants on the market. True to sizing, Recommended for cold mountain weather. Not sure why Back Country will not carry more Western Mountaineering gear. Way to cool of gear. Check out their sleeping bags as well. Off the Charts!!!

This bottle is made very well in regards to its stainless features. It keeps water cold and warm for a long period of time and is durable; however, the cap is too difficult to get tight enough to not leak, and when you do get it tight enough, it is extremely difficult to loosen. In addition, my bottle fell a short distance of about 18 inches(filled) and it cracked the cap instantly. Hydro Flask is a great brand and they do better smaller bottles.
