Chilkats

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I've always been impressed with the quality and durability of the many North Face products I've purchased—many items that have lasted for years and countless uses. However, I too purchased the Chilkat style winter hiking boots and wore them only a handful of times resulting in what would be considered very minimal "wear & tear". The boots appeared in mint condition the last time I put them on, but after taking a few steps, I noticed a trail of broken pieces of rubber crumbling off as I walked. Full review

Chilkats

rated 2 of 5 stars Rubber lower cracked. I had a pair of the original Chilkats. I really liked them, but after a short period of time the lower rubber portion cracked. I took a chance again when they came out with the Chillkat ll. I really liked them and figured NF fixed the issue. NOT!! Same thing different boot. Really, North Face! Really! Full review

Snow Leopard Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars The North Face Snow Leopard men's internal backpack I picked up in 1986 at EMS Sporting Goods in Pinkham Notch, Gorham, New Hampshire the day before I hiked the Tuckerman Trail. It was $460, and it was the best $460 I ever spent. The backpack is grade A+++++ Nothing less then awesome.

Chilkats

rated 0.5 of 5 stars The Rubber part are Rubbish! I have had my North Face boots for about three years. Last week when I took them out of the closet to wear in the snow, the rubber lower and leather upper separated. The rubber completely deteriorated from indoor storage. What crap these turned out to be for an expensive boot. All the rubber on the boot is falling apart. DON'T BUY. Shame on you, North Face. I'll get my next pair from LL Bean. They actually stand behind their product. Full review

Meso 2

rated 2.5 of 5 stars I bought this tent for cycling and hiking trips. Used it four times and it is coming apart. The mechanism on the flying sheet, to attach it to tent, just falls off. Setup: Easy simple and quick Stability: Not stable in wind Weather Resistance: Have not used it in the rain. But did not have moisture problems the four times I used it. Ventilation: Good Room and Storage: Considering its light weight and reason I purchased it is small but perfect. Packability: Good Ease of Use: Easy  Features: Flying… Full review
