Having stood side by side next to several hikers ,many times lost we always compared GPS. This won every time. I love the usability of this unit. Very easy to read and navigate. Many complain about the touch screen action but I do not see. Any unit is hard to handle when it is cold outside. I have the 24K map set and they look amazing. I have had dark spots in the Sierra in the granite valleys and in the forests of the Cascades but other than that the signal is pretty reliable.

I really like this vest. I use it almost everyday from fall to spring. I use it on top of a base layer and thats all I need. Protects me from the cold wind and provides a little bit of insulation. Keeps light rain and mist off your body. Dries really quickly if wet. It is not as fancy as the Pro Elite but for half the price you get a superbly performing vest.

I use these as my main winter cycling tight. They should change the name to winterproof. The front panels shed wind like a Boeing and the super thick warm fleece keeps you pedaling on those brisk days. It is heavier than the thermal tights and might be overkill on not that cold days. Great on rt 1 in the early mornings.

This is the midweight that got me hooked on Smartwool shirts. It is really great on keeping the sweat off your body and it dries uber fast. I use it as solo shirt but you can definitely layer with this as well. It's really warm and a great choice for high altitude adventures. The soft wool keeps you smiling.

I use this tent when there are 3 of us, usually the third being my dog. I really like this tent for its roominess and height. Also the gear loft is pretty neat for all your stuff. A light is nice up there, to brighten things up at night. At 5lbs not the lightest, but distributing the weight makes it work.Great price for a this product. True to MH standards it is rainproof and I like the super easy set up of a free standing tent.

The boots are lightweight and are comfortable right out of the box. I like the support, but not a fan of the grip so much. Slip on anything, even a puddle. You can stomp over a lot of terrain because they are so comfortable but like others mention be weary of the elements. I sealed mine after being compromised several times. Got them on a deal and not bad for the money at all.

These La Sportiva's fit like all La Sportiva's a bit more narrow than most shoes. For the right person,will perform exceptionally. They have really nice grip and a solid sole that provides great support. I really like the tongue, its sort of like a built in gaiter, keeping out small debris and sand. Great for trail running to working out and boot camp.

Having been my go to winter bag for countless trips, this bag deserves some praise. It has stood up to the cold Mt. Washington winter weather. Blasted by rain and cold in the pacific northwest. This bag excels in cold and wet conditions where down bags fail. I have had the bag wet several times yet it still kept its warming ability. Its slighter heavier than down, but very versatile and efficient for cold winter weather use. Love the full zip. You crawl inside and you forget what is going on out in the world. It could be a monsoon or a 17 inch dumping and you could careless because you are toasty.
