Very nice material, good design and a great fit, but the zippers jammed after my first float on the river with them. Maybe they'd have held up longer with beach use (less silt in the sea compared to western rivers), but the pockets are unusable now.

Awesome pot; very light, doesn't stick and the 12" has a large capacity.

Bought it for the camp kitchen setup on the river, but use it for car camping as well. Haven't put it on the fire, seeing as it's aluminum, but I have cooked with it using a few coals on the top and bottom. Flip the lid over and it works as a shallow fry pan.

update: the 10" nests inside the 12" perfectly.

You can never have too many of these. I pick them up as needed or when on sale in a variety of lengths. The quality of the NRS hardware and even webbing cannot be compared to the generic or off-brand substitutes.

Just make sure to brand them with your name/initials. I've lost a few of these to friends and campmates with sticky fingers.

Excellent deck, very stiff with incredible dampening properties. It offers supreme edge hold, the tapered under bite really shows its teeth in deep carves on piste, but the float in powder is great too. Base material seems strong and is super fast, while the camber profile keeps it nice and snappy for the jib-jab, buttery folks.

5'8" 150 lbs. and riding the 159.

DCP and the Yes team knock it out of the park.

Provides protection from other items when stuffed in the day pack. has a little strap on the interior with extra fabric to protect a spare lens.

these are my go-to shorts for spring, summer and fall rides. material breathes/vents well, stretches nicely and doesn't stink. have survived a few wrecks without tearing or ripping.

i prefer the minimalist pocket layout, but the rear waistband pocket is only big enough for keys, not large enough for a smartphone.

quality that you would expect from chacos. i use these casually around town, camp, etc. the foot bed is so much better than a standard flip flop and the material offers a lot of traction for being a thong. i wear a size 9 and these fit me well, with just a cm or so to spare at toe and heel, which i find appropriate.

this is my quintessential shirt for anything outdoors and active in the summer. great fit, design, material and quality of construction. planning on picking up another whenever i find a pattern/color that i like as much as my original.

One of the best camp percolators I've found, have been using it all summer and it's still in perfect condition. The silicon handle can be used above a fire and the steel cleans nicely. Came across this specific design in the 10th Mountain Division hut system in Colorado. They seemed decades old - should be a testament its quality.

previously only used these on long treks and travelling, but now these are the only boxers i wear. whenever these go on sale i always add a pair to a larger order. the fabric is comfortable and great at wicking. fast drying and don't retain stink.
