La Sportiva Nepal Cube GTX Mountaineering Boot - Men's
The La Sportiva Men's Nepal Cube GTX Mountaineering Boot isn't just for the high-minded alpine adventurers amongst us. New this season, the Nepal Cube takes a lighter approach to versatile warmth in a mountaineering boot than its older sibling, the Nepal Evo GTX. While both boots use Gore-Tex to guarantee your foot's dry ride, the Cube loses a full four ounces without taking away any warmth or capability. Whether you're summiting the Grand (Teton, that is), performing telecom magic in the middle of winter, or trekking high and low over many miles, this leather boot gives you a dry and flexible ride.
Rugged Idro-Perwanger leather gets shot full of 3.2mm silicone to create a robustly water-resistant and flexible outer. An air-injected rubber rand creates a durable connection between the top and bottom of this technical boot. Laces tease your toes and weave their way up the boot through locking D rings to help the boot keep a firm grip on your foot. The Gore-Tex Insulated Comfort lining does more than guarantee waterproof and breathable kicking; it adds heat to your hoofers so hiking across snow-covered flats doesn't turn your toes into stubby icicles. In addition, the 4mm Carbon Tech honeycomb footbed uses air to further insulate your foot without adding weight to keep you high-stepping for hours on end.
Not a gossip, this tongue lets fresh air kiss 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. The Impact Brake System turns hard-wearing Vibram into directionally opposed lugs to give your footsteps traction on the way up and the way down.
Deuter Futura 30L Backpack - Men's
It might look like your average day pack, but the Men's Deuter Futura 30L Backpack has a few tricks up its sleeve. The ergonomic and ventilated design of the padded shoulder straps
and waist belt keep you comfortable on longer treks, and they're
designed for minimal chafing—so if you're thinking of bagging a peak and doing an overnighter in one trip, you most certainly can. Slip a divider into the main compartment, creating a spot to store your sleeping bag, then stuff your extra layers above that, and your cooking and meal supplies into the top. Compression straps on the sides can be used to store your tent, but if you're the sleeping-under-the-sky sorta adventurer, you can travel even lighter. Plenty of exterior pockets are available for snacks, map, or phone, and the integrated rain cover protects your gear from unexpected showers.
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 holds 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 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.

La Sportiva Trango Cube GTX Mountaineering Boot - Men's
Winner of the Gear Institute's Best New Gear award at the Outdoor Retailers Summer 2013 show, the all-new, incredibly light La Sportiva Men's Trango Cube GTX Mountaineering Boot makes your extreme high-altitude pursuits heavenly.

Gore-Tex Performance Comfort lining guarantees a waterproof, breathable climate-controlled environment for your foot whether you're learning to self-arrest on ice or starting out well below the snow line.
A low-profile 4mm graded nylon insole puts a skinny pillow under your heel and has a barely-there feel by the time it reaches your toes. A combination of materials create a stable platform for hiking without taking away underfoot cushioning. Opposing lugs of the Impact Brake System offer traction for the trek up and trip down. ONE, an exclusive sole made by Vibram for La Sportiva, keeps the weight off and the silhouette on the down-low.
