I got mine about three weeks ago and went with a full size larger than my normal shoe size. The toe bumper hurts my toes! If I went any larger there would be major heel slippage. I am afraid to do any hikes that would require big downhill sections in these shoes. Also I used them for work for 2 weeks in mesquite/salt cedar riparian areas. The mesquite tore off alarmingly large chunks of the sole, making it look like it was made of styrofoam. I would not recommend these shoes if you live in the southwest or a thorny place. I am thinking of returning them, if I still can.

These are my favorite socks for just about everything. They are super-comfortable and perform especially well when hiking and working outside. They prevent blisters and are breathable and dry quickly if they should get wet. I wear them with boots or shoes. Contrary to other reviews they are machine washable/dryable. My only complaint is that they tend to wear out and get holes in the heel after 6 months to a year. I put them through a lot of abuse though so I still happily buy more.

I owned many pairs of the 2007 version and loved them. The new version does not fit me well. I am 5'7", 120 lbs. and I wore a 2 long in the old version. I ordered the new ones in a 2L and they are way too baggy on me. They don't sell a smaller size! I find this very odd because I am not super skinny. What do people smaller than me wear?

Klean Kanteens are wonderful. No funny tastes and usually water tastes a bit cooler than it would from a plastic bottle. I live in Texas so I was concerned that the stainless steel would absorb alot of heat from the sun. So far its not a problem (at least not any worse than it would be with plastic). My only issue with this bottle is that it comes with a metal cap that makes a lot of painful metal on metal noise when you open and close. I prefer the plastic caps which you can buy from Klean Kanteen.

I'm really liking this jacket. Its warm, does a great job blocking wind and light rain, and it looks really spiffy. Its also good for pet owners, it almost repels hair. Its a nice slim fit that is flattering. The collar is a little stiff at first, but I'm finding that it relaxes with a few washes. It keeps you very warm if you are active, even in extreme cold, but if you are sitting around at camp you might want some insulation.

I am a biologist that works outside every day. These pants have been great for work and put up with lots of abuse. They are abrasion resistant and very thin which is great in the Texas heat. My co-workers that wear cotton pants always sweat a ton more than me. They also dry very quickly. Oh, and the best part is that they look cute too! I don't really consider myself tall at 5 foot 6 and a half, but I do need a long. I have found that all North Face nylon pants shorten with washings, so even if they look a little long when new, they will fit better later if you go with the long.
