First off, I've had my eye on these pants for a while now and finally went ahead and bought them. They arrived today and I put them on right away. The pants are gorgeous although the colors aren't quite as intensely saturated as they appear on my computer screen. The material is thin, breathability only so-so. The size small fit perfectly but as I bent over to inspect the sheer factor (and they are just a touch sheer, but not obscenely so-I would have been ok wearing these to a yoga class)I noticed the stitching was coming undone right in the crotch of all places. Putting them on and taking them off made it unravel even more so now there's a little hole right. in. front. Such a bummer because I really loved the fit and style.

I bought these shoes last Fall so I could ditch my hiking boots as part of my transition to ultralight hiking. Since them they've traveled on safari in Tanzania, as well as several longish (15 mi) day hikes on steep and rugged terrain in Boulder,CO and Yoho National Park in Canada. I love everything about these shoes. They're lightweight and comfortable with an uber-grippy sole that makes me feel secure even on steep and slippery rocks. They have just the right amount of structure and cushion but still allow my feet to feel the ground beneath them. I usually wear a 7.5 or 8 but bought these in an 8.5 and they fit perfectly, especially after a long day when my feet tend to swell. Love the gray and teal color combo, low key but still a fun pop of color with the laces. I may sub out the insole to see how it feels to have a teensy bit more arch support. I also use dirtygirl gaiters with these as I've found I get a few pebbles in them without. Even so, these are my favorite trail runners by far and I've tried all the most popular brands before settling on these. They get 5/5 stars from me!

Trying to decide between this or the WM Alpinelite 20 degree bag. Can't really tell what's different. Looking for something that's 3 season, light/ultralight and good for back AND side sleeping as I sometimes roll around. Is the only difference that the Alpinelite is a little roomier? Feedback much appreciated!
