Got these shoes in 10.5 (same as my salomons and nikes) and they fit quite well. They started out a bit on the tight side, but after wearing them for a couple hours they were more broken in and felt good. Haven't tested the waterproofing too much, but seems to work. Good look, got them for about 90 bucks too. Definitely glad I got them.

This pad is pretty great. It's thick when it's blown up and provides good support in the wilderness. It packs down super small too. The sack that comes with it is almost too big (a lot of extra space left over). Takes a bit to blow it up, but really not that bad. Obviously not a cold weather pad either, but as long as you have a warm bag this thing keeps the cold off you.

I've taken this tent out a few times now and it has some problems. Inner zippers are catching...a lot! Bottom of tent definitely doesn't seem too waterproof. Set it up on some damp grass and you could feel water through the bottom. The stakes and holds on the tent are not great. And only having six stakes doesn't keep the tent very taught in between (have to hold the tent to zip up most of the time). That being said, there is good head room in the tent, it is very easy to set up, it packs down quite small, and it is pretty light for a 3 person tent.

This tent is easy and quick to set up. The single wall design is a new thing for me, but it seems to work pretty well. There was condensation on the vestibule flaps, but not on the inside of the tent. Bought this tent for backpacking with one more person, wanted some extra room with the light weight. Can almost kneel straight up in the middle of the tent to change clothes and whatever else. One of the only problems I have with this tent is the flaps for the vestibule, they don't get too tight and close to the ground. On a windy day in Moab there was quite a bit of sand getting into the tent. I know this is a problem with any tent in Moab on a windy day, but other tents I have had stay tighter to the ground, blocking out a little more dust and sand.

This thing seems to be good quality, used it a bunch of times with no problems. Just need a couple sections of some climbing rope and tie this thing up to the trees in no time! Packs away pretty easily, but I notice the strap doesn't like to get too tight when it is packed up (comes open sometimes). Could fit two people in this thing, but I would probably only use it for one.

This tent is bomb proof. Held up to rain and snow and plenty of wind with no problem. Takes a little bit of time to set up with so many stakes to put in the ground (10 total). Not the lightest tent in the world, but I have taken it backpacking a few times and it has worked for myself and a friend. Just head to toe it and it works just fine. Not a ton of room, but there wasn't any spooning going on!

Not sure what 4jrp is talking about..These mittens are light weight and pretty thin...that being said, they are definitely very warm. Only on very cold days do my hands get cold, and I am not the best in cold weather. They have a wrist strap so you don't have to worry about dropping them off the lift and the drawcord is the best I have ever used. Getting them on and tightened and then off again is super easy. Great gloves to keep your hands warm on cold days!
