Kahtoolas
I haven't used or seen the K10s, but have used the Kahtoolas a ton - both aluminum and steel. I always use them with running shoes, no boots, even on Rainier and Aconcagua. I think they are v...

UD soft bottles

UD vests / sizing / bottles
Sorry, I don't have photos of the bottles. Stay tuned! Yes, the vest thing is a little tricky with regard to sizing. The AK and PB come in 2 sizes, and the SJ in 3. We hope that about cover...
