Re: Montrails
Don't know what's so funny, anon. -- the shoes fit, they took longer than expected to break in (esp. for what's supposed to be cross trainers and not full-fledge boots). My dissatisfaction was m...

Re: Montrail: The end of inovation?
I know that tons of people love their Montrail shoes. Speaking only of my own experience, it was one big disappointment. I wore my Montrail TRS Comp Cross-Training shoes for months before they ...

Re: Potential Essense long pad ideas
I use a blue foam pad. If you fold it to the desired configuration and then put weights on it for a day (Encyclopedia Americana is perfect for this!), it will 'remember' its configuration, making ...

Re: POE Uber Lite
Thanks, Paul! I've looked at torso and uber, but decided both are too narrow for my likes. Right now, I am looking more at the REI Lite-Core Short

Big Sky Ultra C Aluminum Tent Stakes
I've been using titanium shepherd hook stakes for years now -- loving their ultralight weight but disappointed with their suboptimal ground penetration and holding power. These stakes can be bent...

Titanium Goat Adjustable CF Trekking Poles
I received my pair and went on a moderate 2-hour hike today (approx. 2,000 ft. elevation gain over 2.7 miles -- then returning back down). I find the specs to be accurate, and the poles a beauty to...
