I have a horrible time finding shoes that I like - but after several other brands I finally found these and they're perfect! Great fit, really comfortable, very waterproof, and the softer rubber on the bottom grips far better than the rigid hard rubber used on most shoes. I've had them a few weeks and and have put on over 100 miles - still going great.

I have struggled with pillows for a LONG time. From using a nylons stuff sack, to a couple different compressible pillows it all sucked.

Well, this was the answer to my prayers for a good nights sleep!

Just turn it inside out, stuff some clothes in it, and just like that - instant pillow.

The soft felt makes it way more comfortable than a nylon stuff sack, that's for sure, and the fact it hold my sleeping bag when I'm not using it as a pillow is a welcome bonus.

I'm a fine art nature photographer and I wanted a jacket for backpacking that would work against rain, chilly, AND coldish temps.

I tried this jacket and couldn't be happier.

When it's cold, I use the liner and shell together, chilly just the liner or just the shell.

Also, the shell is really waterproof. I was at the edge of a low cliff at Pictured Rocks NLS and got blasted by the top half of a 20 foot wave while looking through the viewfinder. Almost knocked me over.

I was soaked from the bottom down, but the jacket wicked away that water like it was nothin'. Color me impressed.

My wife and I both used a pair of these in Zion to hike the narrows. They did good, but not great. Grip was good, but not mind-blowing. The sole was much thinner than I expected, so you get to feel each and every rock you step on. By the end of 4 -5 miles of hiking in the water I ended up with a hot spot - and that's never happened with any shoe I've ever had (a few more miles and it would have been a blister)

On the plus side, they are light on your feet and keep the rocks out pretty well. Grip was good enough and they seem to dry pretty quick. For water shoes, they are good. If you're looking for a good all-around shoe, find something else and save these for the river.
