Familiarity: I've used it several times

I wanted to love this pad. The theory is good -- a pad that you can keep clean(ish), your stuff won't fall out, a combo pad/sofa, and a comfy harness. Put to the test, however, the pad fails in almost every possible way.

The biggest dilemma is the zipper... it's horrible. A little bit of dust/dirt, and it just won't zip unless you've got two people struggling to get it all perfectly aligned. And that was on day #1 of using the pad. For a $400 pad, Petzl could've at least tested the zipper!

I could go on about this pad, but honestly, there's no need. Don't buy it.

I love the Aliens. LOVE. I am the typical woman - narrow feet, cold toes, low arches, and very active. These boots are super light, fit perfectly (without any inserts), and work exactly as they are supposed to. My toes are not cold! And if I had the aerobic capacity to run up a mountain, I definitely would in these boots. They're flexible, yet supportive.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Rab wins on these - perfect for trail running or snowshoe running in snow. I usually wear them over tights and I come home warm and dry. Personally, I pair these up with the Saucony Xodus (GoreTex runners) for the perfect combo. One note is that the plastic attachment that hooks into the gaiter hook on the shoes is a tad too wide/large for most shoes. I shaved it down with a knife for a better fit. Honestly, perfect winter gaiters. Good work, Rab.
