I was needing some new hiking shoes quick. Didn't have the money to get more expensive ones. I bought these for around $50, not expecting too much, just enough to satisfy short term. Well,these shoes rock. Mud, rock, water, it doesn't matter. These things sink their teeth in and give you a mean bite. Not to mention waterproofness. I dunked them in, and anything below the ankle support didn't get through. I can't imagine needing something better than these. Only negatives are: it's a little toasty, could be a problem during summer, and a bit stiff at first, but that's expected of most shoes. Not heavy, very comfortable. The Jeremy Lin of hiking shoes.

These pants on first fit, feel great! They are lightweight, breathable and fit well. However, they aren't very durable. The first time I put these on, I unzipped the legs and the plastic that you thread the zipper through broke! Literally, from the start, not using excessive force. I still love them, but wouldn't depend on them for anything other than a leisurely day hike. Most comfortable pants I have and look good in grey. They just don't have top notch craftsmanship.

This jacket does an excellent job blocking the wind and keeping you dry. The jacket itself is actually kind of warm, I was surprised. I throw it over my fleece and it keeps me warm in 30 degree weather, with wind and rain. It's very comfortable and lightweight, looks great, built well, and goes on easy over clothing. You can tuck the hood away and take it out for a jog on a cool breezy day too. The only cons' are the pockets aren't steep so stuff falls out easy if not zipped.

I needed a versatile backpack for college, day hikes and going to the gym. This does the job. The Recon is compartmentalized so you can pack quite a bit and not feel clunky. It's built tough yet comfortable. I love this backpack because it makes my day to day life much easier between work, school and the gym. Definitely the best backpack for these purposes that I've owned.
