So, this is my future backpack made by. Buddha and it's a thirty-liter day pack that I'll be using on the Camino it's. Got a lot of features that I really like it's a solid frame but it's pretty light weighs three and a half pounds this section here is holding it rights quite a. Ways away from your body so you get a lot of air flow in there and you don't get too hot I like that space in there it's about three inches I guess the.
Straps are quite nicely padded in here all the way down and in the back and. Also along the waist belt and it's a. Women's specific design so this whole section in here is quite a bit shorter than it would be on regular size it's. Got adjustable straps in the very top. And around the hip that you can keep it. Pretty snug as well as the straps themselves tighten up and of course, it's got the chest strap as well and it slides up and down so you can make it pretty comfortable so let's see flip it.
Over and on each side has a pouch that. You can put anything you want in it'll fit a one-liter water bottle though and these side straps they tighten up or. They can be loose whichever you like there's a side pocket on both sides. That's kind of expands when you put stuff inside it and each side of it has. One of those on the bottom of the section. Divides in half right here and inside you can actually have it a kind of. Panel that you can have and separate the top from the bottom or you can do like I have right now and I have it open lots of hooks on the bottom for hanging things on as well I put some clothes and things in here so you can sort of see but that section there is where it fits.
In and then, of course, you can undo the top so right over here is a pocket. That's really well accessible when you're actually walking use put your hands over your back and grab it so I put things I need during the hike inside sort of more of a safety thing I guess.
You can keep things inside this pouch here and then it's pretty easy to pull. Things out I'll just open it up and stay so you can see inside I'll pull out my towel there's a little strap in there with a little bit of velcro that you can hook things on and. Then again this will be oh yeah i. Forgot there's a little pouch in here and you can put the water bladder in if you're carrying water.
And there's a little hole right on the side that you can leave the little bit of a pipe. Through or whatever I usually just have it coming through the top though it's just pretty easy to do that there's a. Pouch here just for putting things in that you want to keep maybe maps and stuff things that you want accessible and quick and it's got lots of straps on. The outside that's for keeping your poles hiking poles and let's see what else it's overall.
It's really. Comfortable I quite like it and I've. Been wearing it a lot and using it a lot lately so that I can get used to it oh. Yeah on the bottom it's got an opening. That you can pull out the rain cover and. Just get it out here and it's got a bit of elastic around it covers up the entire pack really quickly and easily and it's waterproof so it gives you that. A little bit of extra protection so Deuter. The pack I really like it and I'm hoping that it'll just be perfect for our trip.

This tongue lets fresh air refresh your ankles while giving you the option to customize the boot fit with a removable piece. The 3D Flex tech improves your stability over contorted terrain. The graded polyurethane midsole starts at a whopping 2mm thick in the heel and tapers into a whisper of plastic by the time it reaches your toes.

Warm too and also there's no lace there's no like metal laces on the front of here so when. I'm climbing I you know it's completely.
Sealed if I put my foot in a crack or. Something like that this is some all one unit which is it's really gonna help out. Actually, it's better to not have laces or a lace hook should I say on the front of the toe if you're really thinking about going climbing the other thing with these is because they're made out dry yeah out dry membrane they don't. Absorb any water at all so if you're.
Using them for multiple days they don't. Get wet you know you like you can dry them off really fast whereas like a more traditional door membrane it's gonna take longer to dry them off if they do get saturated because there's like space in between the membrane and. The actual outer bit so if you want one boot that does.
Everything this is a really good option you can use it down to like — 15. — 20 degrees centigrade so if you're going to Canada it's gonna be that or you can take to the out and take the Scotland you can have really warm feet and it's its state the art 2016.

So we've got a whole new fit system here. At the north face called five-dimensional fit, and we've borrowed what we've learned from footwear which is you've got to measure the interior volume of the glove and go outward from there when you're adjusting for size, but we've got a whole new system for grading.
Size on gloves it's called five-dimensional fits and it ensures that if you're large in a technical mountaineering glove like this you'll be large in a stretchy fleece glove for entirely different end use, so we've also employed some pretty sophisticated new construction solutions one of them.
Which is called radiometric articulation. Basically, that mouthful means that we've. Cut the glove in such a way that you end. Up with that a nice natural curve built. Into the glove so that your hand isn't fighting a flat glove to relax we've. Built our gloves with a warm warmer the warmest sensibility and you'll see actually on the hang tags at retail.
You'll see snowflakes and now one snowflake is warm two snowflakes is warmer and three snowflakes is warmest as it needs to convey the message that out you know in the case of the Kelvin here we've built it to be the warmest possible globe that we can build with 8 ounces of frame loft on the back of hand. And 4 ounces of primo loft on the front of hand this is as warm as we can build a mountaineering glove and still maintain the kind of dexterity that this users gonna need.
Our ice climbing equipment testers spent a lot of time in the mountains. They climbed the tops of high mountains, crossing snow, rocks, and glaciers.
