I bought these gaiters for a NOLS backpacking course in Alaska. I was surprised by their waterproof ability. When the river was below the blue section, no water entered my boots. The sole strap stayed in perfect condition (unlike my boots!) and I didn't even buy those protectors most people had. Overall, they held up very well and still look brand new. Other people on my course did not take as good care of their gear, though and their gaiters looked pretty worn by the end of the month. As for sizes, I am 5'5" average build, size 8.5 boot, and the medium fit perfect.

I brought this sleeping pad on a 30 day NOLS course in Alaska. We slept on many scree fields and I was still comfortable as can be. It was also very insulating and I was never cold. I had a women's specific sleeping bag which fit perfectly on the pad, not too long or short. Towards the end of the course, it did get a hole due to a sharp jagged rock sticking out of the tundra. I was able to fix it with the repair kit and it has worked just as well since.
