Sleep like a baby
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Without question the best sleeping pad I have owned. Over the last 35 years I have tried tons of different sleeping pads, but none have compared to the Q-core SLX. We bought them specifically for thru-hiking the John Muir Trail in July of 2017 and found them to be easy to set up (with the stuff sack of course), lightweight, durable and nice small pack size. Well worth the money.
Highly recommend this product

Game Changer
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this watch to use while thru-hiking the John Muir Trail during July 2017, and have worn it everyday since then. The watch has incredible features, is easy to navigate, and has a good battery life. The 2017 winter in the Sierras was record breaking and left a lot of the JMT trail snow covered and hard to find, but was no problem with the Traverse as we created routes ahead of time using the movescount website and downloaded everything before heading out. What a game changer and a life saver helping us find our way back onto the trail.
Since then I have been wearing it daily and use it for mountain biking as it will save your routes and links to your strava account as well.
I would highly recommend this watch to any outdoor enthusiast

I've only used the watch a few times , but am impressed with what it can do so far. Very easy to figure out and an excellent manual online as well as many youtube videos to help out as well.
I've used it on some local area hikes in dense coverage and have had no problem keeping a signal. I have also linked it to my strava account and have logged in a couple mountain bikes rides on it. All easily transferable to the movescount program to record your activities.
As I begin to learn more about what it can do I am more excited to apply it to all my outdoor activities. The main purpose for purchasing the watch is to thru hike the John Muir Trail this coming July/August. Thanks to my assigned backcountry.com gearhead Sarah, I made the purchase based on her recommendation and am very happy with the product.

Get one you wont be disappointed.
