Travis Flitton's Bio

My name is Travis. I love the outdoors and often find myself wandering in the wilderness whether it is camping, fishing, hunting, backpacking, or winter sports. I love to be out and about with friends and family going on random adventures. One of my favorite adventures was exploring New Zealand from top to bottom having adventures such as black water rafting to bungee jumping and exploring the local culture of the Maori. I hope to go back and backpack again and re-experience the atmosphere.

I really enjoyed using this harness. It is super versatile and easy to use. For a lightweight harness, it is still quite comfortable. I really liked the two hard draw loops in the front. They were easy to reach for and were out enough to never miss them. The two softer, rear loops were harder to work with. If this harness would have all four loops to be firm for easier access to gear.
I used this harness for sport climbing and easily carried all my gear for anchor building and all my draws. With the rear loops being less firm, I can only imagine a little fighting with a full trad rack.
Overall a great lightweight harness!

I love having this PAS. While being fairly inexpensive for the job of a PAS, It still performs as well as those with a higher price bracket. Granted it is not as long as some of the systems out there, but it still is a happy 41" sling to help clean a route or extend your rappel.

I like these shoes for a first timer or a spare set for a comfy day at the crag. I got these as a spare set to let friends of mine to use.
They are washable as well. So that is another awesome feature! No more stinky shoes. I am loving the new colors as well. The old vibrant yellow shoes were fun, but were definitely supposed to be used as a gym shoe.

This bag is the best for traveling with a luggage piece. I love the day pack that is included with the bag!
I can't tell you how many times I got looks of awe and jealously as I went through airport security and just rolled up, took off my shoes and unbuckled the two pieces so easily and threw them through the scanner with such ease. I even had one elderly couple gawking and commenting on how sleek my wife and my bags looked. Granted, the set up doesn't fit with typical airline overhead bins together, but the main bag fits like a jewel in the overhead bins and the day pack fits under the seat with ease.
I was also able to utilize the convertible portion of this bag as well. In about 30 seconds I was ready to pack around the pack in the city rather than dragging it behind me-day pack included. It was a little rough on my hip bones with the wheels, but was manageable. I wish that they were adjustable as well to set out just a little bit wider. The suspension was just fine on the back and shoulders, though.

Pros-
Easy to work with in the airports
Convertible to a backpack for rough terrain or just to stop dragging behind you.
Easy grab handles on three sides so you can carry it in a number of fashions
Compact design
Includes day pack
Day pack is comfortable with a suspended mesh back for supreme breathability
Perfect airplane designs for a carry-on and personal item all in one
Great curvature for the frame to match hip curvature
Burliest Luggage bag with easy zippers

Cons-
Rubs a little on the hips with the wheels- no conversion for the wheels
Doesn't have a full suspension like a typical Osprey Pack
Slightly heavier than the Ozone

Summary: 10/10 would buy again
I have a piece of luggage that will last me a lifetime and the features of this thing are awesome! There are so many mesh pockets to use for separating items and the large pocket on the top for easy grabbing of a toiletries bag for security. I seriously couldn't stop talking up this bag.

At under a pound, contains all of its components within itself, and fast to boil water, I would say the Jetboil is one of the best stoves on the market.
I have boiled water in about a minute with this and was eating within another 5-10 minutes on the trail. This stove is so easy to use and breaks down into simple packing components.
The 100g fuel canister fits inside of the cup with the stabilizer and the stove really easily. With that canister, it will run around 12 full boils. I've found that I usually can get more.
The accessories for the jetboil are neat too! I have used the pan and the java press in the mornings to get my day started right.

This shoe is great for a first-time climber like my wife. She loves the extra padding along the sides and the heel because it makes climbing more comfortable on a tighter shoe. This fit true to size, and she loves the colors! Seems very durable as well.
If you are a first time climber, or just looking for a softer shoe, this is for you.

I love these shoes. The slightly large toe box provided a great fit for my foot. The semi-aggressive downturn on the shoes are great for bouldering and climbing complex series.
They fit perfectly after running them up the wall a few times and nearly fit right out of the box! I expected a longer break in period, but these really fit the bill.
Careful on the sizing because scarpa has a few levels of 1/3 sizing instead of 1/2 sizes around the 8 and 10 sizes, so take a look at the sizing charts to be sure of your size.
I typically wear a size 9 in my street shoes, and the 42's fit great!

I Love lounging in these slippers at home. They are warm and cozy on a chilly night on the couch. They are super soft and begin to form to your foot shape within the first couple of wears. Thus far I have had no issues with them and they seem to have some solid construction. They have yet to gain a smell either after a few months of use, so that is always a BIG Plus!

I got the clear lens for white-out conditions.
They work great and increase the visibility when in those conditions. Fortunately, I have only had to use them 3 or 4 times, thus far, but the swap is super easy and can be done in a minute or so. They aren't as easy as some other goggles on the market to swap out, but they are certainly easier than a bunch of the models out there too.

What a great buff! My wife loves the pattern and the versatility. She wears it different ways, and it can protect her face and neck from every condition. She doesn’t know how she skied without it.

I got a plain one and have used it in many different ways. I love that there is fleece on one half and the standard material on the other so that you don't ALWAYS have to have just a fleece scarf, but you can utilize both sides.

Our girl Zoey loves her blue collar. It’s durable, has easy clips for tags and the leash, and stylish as well. It comes with a tag silencer so there isn't a clinking sound on the trail. It can be loosened so that it grows with the dog. Fits true to size.

This harness is so great! I love walking my puppy when she’s wearing this. It makes it easy to control her since it has a clip on the front and the back. The front clipping point is a necessity when your pup starts to pull. It will stop that habit in a flash. It is very durable, and it can be adjusted to different sizes.
