Nick F's Bio

Love to ski, hike, bike (road or mtn), back country camping, basically anything outdoors I try to get out and do. The mountains are my playground and they are right in my backyard! Also an Avid Speedskater, trying to make the Olympic Team.

Awesome

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Took this tent on a Scouting overnight. Fit 4 boys under the age of 15 no problem. At 7 lbs, they can divvy up the tent and poles and still have alight bag to haul in. They were shoulder to shoulder but what backpacking tent isn't these days.

Love the dual vestibule and doors. no more climbing over someone to escape in the middle of the night. WAY more headroom with the new pole design.

The list of what you couldn't use this cord for would be shorter than me telling you what I have used it for. I never have to replace it, only get more for more projects. It holds up great and is recommended for anything you can think of, really.

To spice up this review, I will go ahead and tell you what I have used it for: ridge lines for hammock tarp, tie downs for tents and awnings, clothes line, practicing knots, strapping gear to my backpack, and the list goes on. My wife uses it for: curtain tie backs and rope shelves in the house.

Get the 100ft length... you'll use it.

This little fan can really move some air. Perfect for a little breeze to get things moving or a wind to cool you off. True to form, it only pulls 8 watts on low, 10 watts on med and 13 watts on high. Compared to other compact fans purchased from "big box stores" this one wins every time. Moves more air, and pulls only half the amount of energy. Get it, you won't regret it!

I bought this for my 3 weight Sage 3200 reel. Only needed about 50 yards, then the 80 foot fly line filled the spool. Super easy to know when I am getting close to the end of the fly line with the bright orange color, have NOT had to rely on it yet but glad that it's there.

Bought this in a 3 weight to pair with my Sage ONE rod. It is an excellent set up. Incredibly smooth drag, very easy to detach the spool and clean or swap for other line. The large arbor holds a TON of line, (I got 80ft of backing and 80ft of line) and the machine finish on the reel is super pretty.

Message to the fish,"I'm coming for ya!!!"

I bought a pair of these in 25mm width and put them on my bike replacing my old pair of Continental Grand Prix 4000 S Tire in the 23mm width. Over 2000 miles on the old pair. Since I don't race often the 25mm better suite my riding style of weekend warrior and century rides. I keep them inflated to almost max PSI, which keeps them rolling FAST. They grip great for me when I am flying down a canyon at 50mph+. I'll buy another set for sure once I wear down my current pair.

I walk a minimum of 15 miles a day at work. I need a pair of pants that can keep up with me and not wear out every few months. KUHL has been the one company that has kept up with my busy work life. The tough cotton on the Rydr is gonna last me a long, long time.

First bought little cheap backpacks thinking that the kids (a 5 year old boy and a 5 year old girl) would use them for the year and yes they would get torn up a bit, but still be useable. No such luck, the backpacks didn't last 1 month.

Found these backpacks from Marmot and while not as cheap they are very durable and will easily last the rest of the school year and probably into the next.
