Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought both the wireless and wired. Both have worked very nicely. They have nice sound and they both like the push button ear piece to pause or change songs. I have had a wired set for 2+ years and have had no problem. The only drawback to the wired is that you have to unplug them to take your helmet off without your jacket.

These are a nice casual mid-hi boot. They seem to be very well constructed. Very comfortable out of the box. I did put a little extra arch support in them. I like to have my arch supported and most shoes do not do this despite what they tell you. They do slip off without untying them if the laces are not too tight, but they don't slip on without untying(which our mothers told us we should do no matter what!) My feet have stayed nice and dry in some snowy conditions. Nice traction.

Love this pad! I bought it for it's size and weight and love it for the support that it provides. My wife loves it as well. I did not find it noisy when moving around. It is compact and much smaller than some of my earlier pads. It also gets me off the ground a little more providing some bottom insulation. We have used them several times. I am a side sleeper and I don't feel any pressure on my hips when on my side. Just took it on a trip through Utah and the Grand Canyon!

This is a nice pillow. It does not pack down as small as some. It is about the size of a nalgene bottle. I find it to be a little clammy against my face so using a T-shirt or something over it would help, but it held air nice. Easy to inflate and deflate. We actually use it for a knee pillow more than a head pillow since it is a little sticky

This pillow packs down to the size of a baseball! Inflates in a few breaths and has a nice cover so you don't get clammy against it. My first pillow worked for a couple of trips then started leaking. My wife's has held up great and she would give it 5 stars. 4 for me due to the leak. I just traded it in for a new one so I will keep you updated! It is comfortable to sleep on.

Great stove

I bought this based on other reviews and I must say that I love the stove. Our first use boiled 4 eggs in about 11 minutes from turning it on. I stored the fuel in the bowl and kept the burner out for spacing in my pack. The strainer lid is great to help reduce steam coming off and water loss. Boiled water quickly at 7000 ft.

I bought these for my wife. She really like them for wt. The size in foot length was good but after wearing them in the house for a day she felt that they were too narrow and would cause problems as the day progressed if doing a lot of hiking. So we had to return them.

First off I had to go about a 1/2 size smaller than I normally wear. They seemed slightly larger than most of my shoes. But BC is great with exchanges and promptly sent me out my adjusted size. The boots fit great. I did put a pair of green Superfeet inserts into them. This is the norm for me as most shoes and boots do not come with proper arch support. Once you try them you don't go without.

The boots have a nice gripping Vibram sole. They fit like a comfy glove with a smartwool or ski sock on. My feet have stayed dry and warm. It has only been winter since I have had them so I can't comment on whether or not they are too warm in the summer. No blisters or rough spots right out of the box. My only problem occurred with my right boot. I felt like the lace hook rivot at the bend of the boot dug in a little so I by-passed this and have had no problems.

I bought this pack for my day pack climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro! It was perfect. I could have used one of the middle pockets to be a little bigger but the built in cover helped keep things dry with the rains that came everyday. I really loved the pockets in the shoulder strap and waist strap. That helped to keep quick snack easily reachable. The hydration pack by Osprey fit nicely in as well but separate from the internal compartments.

My old boots liner broke 2 weeks before I was set to climb Mt. Rainier. I ordered the La sportiva Glacier EVO and Loved It. Only was able to wear them to my physical therapy office for one day of work and they felt great. Support was sufficient, great grip and warmth on my climb. Definately would recommend.
