I bought this to supplement Snow Peak's original tempered glass globe. It outperforms the base globe in several areas. It diffuses light better, is slightly lighter, and is completely unbreakable. On the down side the mesh globe makes ignition a pain with a pizeo starter and/or in windy conditions. The glass globe keeps gas inside long enough to light. Mesh doesn't offer much of a barrier. Gas diffuses almost as quickly as released. Once started it works like a charm.

This shirt worked like a charm during a Grand Canyon rim-to-rim-to-rim excursion. The shirt closes easily and provides a little extra warmth in low temp conditions. The stretch panels allow an excellent range of motion. Now for the bad part. I noticed some fraying on the seams connecting the 2 different fabric types. After 2 washings the seams had multiple small holes thought their length. If I spend this much on a shirt, I'd like that shirt to last more than a couple washes.

Let me start by reviewing what this shoe can't do. This shoe is NOT designed for running, carrying heavy loads, or other high impact activities. The massive shock and torque placed on the minimalist cushioning and heel strap respectively will overwhelm this shoe.

That being said, this amphibious shoe succeeds admirably in its purpose. I spend a lot of time exploring tide pools here in CA. This shoe protects my feet from jagged rocks and ocean surge. It provides excellent footing on slippery seaweed. The waterproof sole sheds water quickly while the heel strap provides a glove like fit. It is light enough to pack in as a camp shoe and comfortable enough for day hikes with a hydration pack.
