I paid full price for this baby, a rare thing for me, but I love the watch. I've had it for 4-5 years now and surfed with it hundreds of times and it still keeps on going. You do need to make sure to rinse it in fresh water after your session and press all the buttons to clear out any salt gunk, otherwise the buttons can get stuck. The tide info is so great to have, set to my local break which is the namesake of the watch, Rincon. The button assignment is a bit odd, and the settings aren't intuitive so I always have to read the manual when DST ends, but otherwise love this watch. A good hefty feel but still small enough to fit under my wetsuit.
A buddy of mine uses one of these and was bummed when it started leaking and was thinking of getting rid of it. However I was able to find a replacement O-Ring on Ebay for him and now it is as good as new, all for just a couple bucks. Something to consider it you have problems. Here it is http://www.ebay.com/itm/120774384658
Does this cap come with the o-ring in it?
It is inexpensive and has a coin slot, but the feel and construction seem kind of cheap. If you like a wallet that inspires confidence, look elsewhere. Its so cheap I'll rock it for a year or so but am keeping my eye out for a real wallet.
Got these for the wife as she was putting a lot of walking miles on her running shoes. These are a nice for those times you don't feel like lacing up your real deal hiking shoes and want something lighter but more support than running shoes.
Bought this for my wife for her birthday. Turns out many months later we had a kid (unrelated to buying this). Now this is her go-to shirt for breastfeeding the baby. Because of the inner flap, it is very easy to whip out a boob and get down to feeding. I could see this coming in handy other ways too. Any way, she loved the shirt before having a kid, and loves it even more now which is why I'm on here gobbling up inventory. I bought her a Medium for her 5'8" 130lb body that used to be A cups but now is B+ cups.
Is down coming out of the jacket normal?
My wife has had her jacket for two months and loves it. However she has noticed that down has been coming out of the jacket in different spots. Sometimes there is down coming out of the seems, and sometimes just in the middle of the jacket. She has taken great care of it. The good news is Backcountry did the exchange, but my question is, should I expect the replacement to have the same problem?
