Makes for a great night's sleep! Does everything it claims to do. Blowing it up isn't the most fun I've had, but it's an inconvenience I'd gladly deal with for a comfortable night.
Love the shirt. Breaths great, Looks great, good sun protection, dries fairly quick, and very comfortable. Runs a bit big in my opinion, but I'm sort of in-between sizes. My only complaint is that I have a hard time getting the wrinkles out. Besides that there are no complaints.
I really love these sandals. I feel a little nerdy wearing them around at times, but who cares! They are super comfortable and very functional. The sizes run a little big in my opinion. The toe bumpers are great, especially for river crossings or canoeing. You can tighten or loosen according to your preferences.
I typically wear size 10 and 1/2. But 10 and 1/2 in these sandals run a bit big.

I love these and will continue to use these until something better comes around! The only drawback for me is, Unless they are stuffed pretty full they are tough to get all of the air out of, which robs me of a little room in my pack. I can testify that these will keep your clothes or whatever you throw inside nice and dry. I only wish there were some way to release the extra air more efficiently.
First off, I do like to relax in a hammock. On a lazy day they are great to lay in. However, if you are a tosser/turner when you sleep I would not recommend this or any other hammock shelter for camping. They are extremely restricting and Unless you are able to sleep in one position all night, I would stick with another form of shelter. If you don't mind being in one position, then by all means go ahead and enjoy being off of the hard ground. The only drawback besides that is the wind, it will cut right through the shelter, which can lead to a cold night. I would recommend this for warm weather camping.
This is the first harness I have purchased since I've started climbing. It's got everything you need, the sizes are accurate and I wear it very comfortably. The price is very reasonable as well. My only complaint is that the chalk bag comes in many different colors and patterns, some of which may cause others to question your manhood. Mine was purple with polka-dots. Ha.
I've had a great experience with these cases. I use this case for my first aid/survival kit. All of the things I need to keep dry, stay dry. I've never experience a problem. If I were gonna pack a camera inside, I would definitely make sure it's wrapped in a ziploc bag to be on the safe side. They're a little heavy, but they're great for organization. Can't go wrong with one of these if you ask me.
Every cook set i've used has either charred from the fire or either stuck inside the pot from cooking too long. Neither of those has happened to this set yet. They aren't as light as a titanium set, but personally i'm willing to carry the few extra ounces to have this in my bag. When I go out alone I take only the large pot, 1 bowl, one cup, which leaves room for my MSR pocket rocket and a small can of fuel. It can spill over with such a small stove since it's much larger in size, so be careful not to let it tip. Overall it's a great buy, and I assure you that you'll love it!

I really like this handle bar, my only complaint is that after about 20 min. of riding, my wrists ache. The length, the weight, and strength of these bars is amazing. If you have weak wrists, I think a bar with a higher rise will be a bit better.
I couldn't be happier with this tent! It's Light weight, packs up pretty good, the stakes are titanium! Breathablity is fantastic (obviously). The vestibules keep you and the floor dry in rainy conditions. On dry nights remove the fly and enjoy the stars! To save weight, take only the fly and footprint, that is if you don't mind some creepy crawly's.

Yes it will keep track of your altitude changes, the instruction booklet explains very well how to do so. The menu is relatively easy to figure out, just play around with it before you try to take accurate info.
I'm actually just about the same size and weight (5'10" and 170 lbs). The Precip isn't really that tight fitting (one reason why it isn't $300) so I would definitely go with the medium. Large would drown you. It's meant to be a layering piece which it does really well for the price. Mine has also been fairly durable. * I second that. I'm 6' 175lbs, and I wear the medium. The length is great, and it's fits well over your base and insulating layers. It's a great price for the perfomance, though it isn't slim fitting. The epitome of "bang for your buck".
Should be perfect. Just make sure you set the stove somewhere stable. And flat. *Hey Jason, That is the combo that I use, and it works great for me. The stove and a few other small gadgets fit inside the larger pot as well, to save some space.
