This is a perfect little lantern for all camping needs. As another reviewer pointed out, this is not a 200 watt mega-bright monster but then again, who really cares? It's tiny! With Snow Peak, it's all about the details. I love the carrying case, the little metal serial number tag attached to the lamp, the feel of the valve...

This is my most favorite t-shirt in my closet! If people at work wouldn't notice, I would buy seven of these and wear them every day. As it stands, this shirt (I have the blue) is one of the first things to go into the washer each week. It's soft , cool, and fast-drying but without the weird feel of their synthetic shirts. I only wish they would make these in more everyday colors.

I bought this pullover about a month ago and the only time I take it off is when I sleep. I'm going to have to buy a couple more in other colors so I don't look like I only own one shirt. Like other reviewers have pointed out, it's insanely warm for how thin it is. The inverse waffle pattern of the pile does wonders.

I bought these pants for a canyoneering trip to Moab that I took last weekend. They were part of a large order that I placed on this site last week and I'm happy to say that these were the very best purchase of the lot. They stood up to the abrasive sandstone and kept my butt and knees free of scabs. I wish my hands fared so well! The pants were very comfortable and the smooth fabric made them easy to un-bunch after I put my harness on. The temperatures ranged from around freezing to the 50s that weekend, with lots of wind, and they my legs warm enough. They dried quickly after being submerged in icy "potholes". The most amazing thing about these pants? After an entire weekend of hard wear, they look brand new. There's not a spot of dirt on them. I'm not sure how Marmot does it but these things stay clean-looking. The downsides? The pockets are a little weird and take getting used to. The belt and buckle kind of suck and tended to loosen when worn under a harness.

I really love my SANP socks. They retain no moisture and cling to my feet perfectly without bunching up like the rest of my socks. I had custom Surefoot insoles made for my Garmont Ener-G tele boots (Surefoot rules), and these socks work perfectly with my newly-fitted boots. I didn't need insulation, as my boot liners take care of that. If you have custom insoles, a thick insulating sock will not give you a proper and consistent fit. The SANP socks, however, were just what I needed.
