I like these sunglasses, they were a good price and good quality.
I just wish they weren't so crooked out of the package, had to adjust them. They weren't level. But they are great now.
Review from the girlfriend:
They are awesome, and super cute! They fit true, and are very comfortable. It might be good to use weatherproofing spray on the boot, as part of it is cloth. Highly recommend.
Her comments: "Great shorts. They are comfortable and very lightweight. Great for hiking in the heat and they dry quickly if they get wet.
Only cons are that their lightweight design doesn't give your legs a whole lot of protection from bumps or scrapes."
I bought this as a birthday gift for my sibling. She said these are the most comfortable sunglasses she has ever owned, and loves the look of them as well. She said wearing them all day at Zion's National Park went well, and at no point did she feel the need to take them off due to discomfort.
I bought these for my girlfriend for a trip to Moab. After a full day of hiking she was still feeling comfortable. We took it on the Delicate Arch trail, and exploring through the Fiery Furnace. They fit great, and look nice.
These were a good choice.
I purchased this for a day of hiking in Moab. When going to Moab last year (same time of year) my water tube would heat up within 5 minutes or less for extremely hot water, which is hardly refreshing. However with this awesome addition to my Antidote reservoir made it so it would take anywhere from 15-20 minutes before it got that hot. Generally the worst it got during that time was luke warm. So I'm absolutely pleased with this addition.
Just be aware that you are required to have a Quick Link on your reservoir. If you have a reservoir without Quick Link you need to buy the adapter. My Antidote reservoir was one that didn't come with quick link, and the adapter works fantastic.
If you have a non-camelbak brand reservoir, that uses camelbak sized tubing, you could easily throw the adapter on there and use this awesome tube.
I bought these in preparation for hiking Arches National Park. Specifically for wandering through The Fiery Furnace. They were very cosy on the soles, and kept a great grip throughout. The fit is nice as well. Heat doesn't build up in the shoe either, I didn't feel like my feet were melting at any point in the 93 degree weather. The shoe will feel a little tight at first, but after a week of wearing it forms nicely to your foot.
Due to the nice look of these, they can be worn as normal day shoes and still look very nice.
My only negative comment about these shoes would be that there is no padding of any sort above the toes so I had a few blisters. I think this could be easily made up for with slightly thicker socks.. however, wearing any kind of thinner sock you can feel the slight discomfort near the front towards your pinky toe.
I will be keeping these around and wearing them on all future hikes, just need cozier socks.
This is something I wasn't intending to buy. I purchased the insulated tube kit from Backcountry, and it turned out that kit required the quick link kit. Luckily it's fairly inexpensive. I was a bit nervous about the quality when placing my order, but after assembling it.. I feel confident in the future with it. No instructions come with it, but it's pretty straight forward. I've included a photo to illustrate what you will need to do. Grab some reliable scissors and make a nice straight cut on your old tubing. I chose to go about 3 inches up in the event I screw up the cut, or if leaking happens in the future. After the cut is made, slide the pieces in place. Just be sure you put the correct pieces as I've shown, otherwise you'll likely have a bad time if you get a new tube, or anything that uses the Quick Link feature. Once you've shoved the pieces in place (with little effort required), you're good to go! It's on there nice and steady and some quick hard tugs didn't even cause the tubing to nudge.
If I run into issues down the road, I'll report back. But so far I'm pleased and impressed with it!
I bought these because they were said to keep hands warm down to somewhere around 25-35 degrees (can't remember the specific number off the top of my head). However, when wearing in 35 degree weather I felt they made my hands colder than going without them. It was almost as if it let cold air in and trapped it there.
On top of that, the XL fits more like a L, possibly even a bigger M.
I really wanted to like these gloves as I really liked the way the fingers could fold open for precision hand usage. The quality of the glove looks and seems nice, and I'm sure it'd be a great glove in slightly less cold of weather. But just have nothing positive to say otherwise.
Ultimately I ended up just taking my gloves off and not wearing them at all the rest of the day that I was going to depend on them.
