rated 4.5 of 5 stars I purchased my Explorer at a shop in Estes Park, CO, 4 years ago. My husband and I go annually and have never been disappointed. That summer, however, my fybromyalgia struck with a vengance. My regular cane simply wasn't giving me enough support to get off the main path and to go see my favorite spots. Alberta Falls for instance, is a lot of up and down, not level walking. I chose the Explorer because it was sturdy enough for my 230lb build, supportive enough with the different tips and adjustability… Full review

Rando X

rated 5 of 5 stars If you don't like carrying extra weight, this simple straight forward pack is for you. It is well built. I have used this pack for 8 years of hard backcountry use and it has never let me down. It takes a little time to learn to organize your stuff but I carry all the required equipment for a long day in this pack. Hint:stuff your skins and lunch under the shovel in the front pocket. It is a little small for glacier travel and ski mountaineering but I still managed. Full review

Pit Boss

rated 5 of 5 stars This shovel is light and unbreakable! I accidentally backed over the shovel head of mine with the car back in 2001 and I still have it in my back country pack ready to go for 2009-2010 season. I doubt an aluminum piece could make that claim. Simply unbeatable. If you know what Lexan plastic is you won't hesitate to get it. I even sharpen it with a file once in a while to keep it sharp for cutting snow easier. I really like the Life Link products for back country use, and recommend them to anyone… Full review

AT Superlight

rated 5 of 5 stars Picked these babies up in Harper Ferry. Got them on closeout deal for about 75 dollars. Don't think there in production any longer. Kinda sad about this. I left my pair on Katahdin by accident during the ascent. Bummer. I guess they were my sacrifice to the Big Mountain God. Full review

Boundary Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars The pack is basic and designed for emergency gear only, it's thin and small the way I think they should be for mountain snowmobiling. It's so thin I don't catch on branches when boodocking, and it's hardly noticeable. At the end of the day I do have a slight digging sensation near my right armpit that I can't adjust away but I'm built a little weird, my right leg is about an inch longer than my left so my back bends weird to accommodate that. I carry, shovel, probe, (all inside nothing outside)… Full review
