What is the inseam on uk 12 and a uk 12 short?
Having stood side by side next to several hikers ,many times lost we always compared GPS. This won every time. I love the usability of this unit. Very easy to read and navigate. Many complain about the touch screen action but I do not see. Any unit is hard to handle when it is cold outside. I have the 24K map set and they look amazing. I have had dark spots in the Sierra in the granite valleys and in the forests of the Cascades but other than that the signal is pretty reliable.
I really like this vest. I use it almost everyday from fall to spring. I use it on top of a base layer and thats all I need. Protects me from the cold wind and provides a little bit of insulation. Keeps light rain and mist off your body. Dries really quickly if wet. It is not as fancy as the Pro Elite but for half the price you get a superbly performing vest.
I use these as my main winter cycling tight. They should change the name to winterproof. The front panels shed wind like a Boeing and the super thick warm fleece keeps you pedaling on those brisk days. It is heavier than the thermal tights and might be overkill on not that cold days. Great on rt 1 in the early mornings.
Icebreaker is right, wool can be sexy. Not only is this shirt super functional because its a 200 weight but also stylish. The stitching on the sides is very sliming despite the horizontal pattern.
This is the midweight that got me hooked on Smartwool shirts. It is really great on keeping the sweat off your body and it dries uber fast. I use it as solo shirt but you can definitely layer with this as well. It's really warm and a great choice for high altitude adventures. The soft wool keeps you smiling.
This shirt is an amazing mid weight, unmatched by others out there. It is really warm and the moisture management is superb. Especially because of the half zip. Its nice and soft. I use this as my layering mid weight and solo. It is one of my favorite smartwool shirts.
Super warm tights for cold weather use. Form fitting and with a athletic cut, works really good as a layering system or solo. They loosened up after 3 months of daily use but regardless they perform really well.
I started using this shirt for cycling and layering with a vest in the cool coastal mornings of Rt 1 in Cali. I really like the cut and thumb cutouts are really functional for biking. Warm enough yet highly breathable.
After having the full length version of these, I finally got the 3/4 and I am in love. They are really functionally and you get the same performance and warmth of the full length mid weight. Great athletic cut and fit.
I use this mid weight as my layering base for all my activities. From walking the dog to summit a 14er.The wool is real efficient at wicking moisture and keeping you dry. It dries super fast and has stood up to a good amount of abuse. Great price for a mid-weight.
Its a must have for filtering water with any kind of debris in it. My only pet peeve, is that I wish they made it more compact and lighter. The rubber/plastic is kind of bulky. I've seen others trim it down for the trail.
I use this tent when there are 3 of us, usually the third being my dog. I really like this tent for its roominess and height. Also the gear loft is pretty neat for all your stuff. A light is nice up there, to brighten things up at night. At 5lbs not the lightest, but distributing the weight makes it work.Great price for a this product. True to MH standards it is rainproof and I like the super easy set up of a free standing tent.
The boots are lightweight and are comfortable right out of the box. I like the support, but not a fan of the grip so much. Slip on anything, even a puddle. You can stomp over a lot of terrain because they are so comfortable but like others mention be weary of the elements. I sealed mine after being compromised several times. Got them on a deal and not bad for the money at all.
These La Sportiva's fit like all La Sportiva's a bit more narrow than most shoes. For the right person,will perform exceptionally. They have really nice grip and a solid sole that provides great support. I really like the tongue, its sort of like a built in gaiter, keeping out small debris and sand. Great for trail running to working out and boot camp.
Great pants by MH. Love the lining on the inside. They are very durable and can take a beating. Very nice convertible action. Fit true to size and not lose like other products.
Having been my go to winter bag for countless trips, this bag deserves some praise. It has stood up to the cold Mt. Washington winter weather. Blasted by rain and cold in the pacific northwest. This bag excels in cold and wet conditions where down bags fail. I have had the bag wet several times yet it still kept its warming ability. Its slighter heavier than down, but very versatile and efficient for cold winter weather use. Love the full zip. You crawl inside and you forget what is going on out in the world. It could be a monsoon or a 17 inch dumping and you could careless because you are toasty.
One of my first bags, took it to Peru and used countless times in Yosemite. It performs really well and it is really warm. Its not the lightest of bags at, 2 lbs 10 oz, using 600 down. Given the reasonable price its a phenomenal performing bag by sierra designs. I like the full zips here because sierra designs tends to use a lot of half zips.
This is my go to jacket when weight and warmth are an issue. I can not stress how warm this jacket is. Hood comes in handy in the high altitude cold. Feels like you are wearing nothing. Great movement and flexibility, very active cut.Love the thumb cut outs. Tested to 10 and below with the wind chill, I was completely comfortable.
My first group pot set and I still love it. Love the non stick and you can cook just about anything. Large enough to cook soup for 2 even. Takes a beating as well, used it in a caldera cone and it did great on alcohol, esbit and wood. Not super light but it comes with the stow away bowls.
