I bought this to replace a trusty old jacket. First used it on a windy, rainy and extremely cold 3 day kayaking trip---proved its weight in gold! Kept me dry in shocking conditions and proved extremely comfortable in seriously adverse conditions. Thoroughly pleased with it.
I have just completed the Overland track and wore these booties every night and after walking into Cynthia Bay. They were warm and great in the huts and the shuffles to the toilet blocks. Withstood the chicken wire covered duckboards. Pleased I bought them
Perfect for camping. Great to have a real coffee in the bush!
These are such excellent pants. It’s pretty rare (at least for me) to find hiking pants that just fit, and so I was pleasantly surprised when I put these on and…that was it. No tugging or adjusting or regrets about last night’s dessert. The waist hits my actual waist (and it’s elastic), my thighs aren’t constricted, the pockets are in the right place and are the right depth. I can SQUAT in these without having to hitch them up, so there will be no problem with days and days of stairs (looking at you Frenchman’s cap…) I took them for a first spin on a drizzly, muggy Sydney day and they were great. Loose and breathable enough that I didn’t want to rip them off my body, but enough protection to stop the leeches. I’m about 5 4” and I’ll need to take a bit off the hem, but apart from that, I love them as-is. Would highly recommend.
Honestly other than being light weight i wasn't sure what to expect, since using these multiple times i have learnt you don't need to hammer into the ground too far to get the best results, in fact I never do now since last time I used these DAC J stakes on very hard soil, they went straight in but then I physcially couldn't remove them (due to an arm injury, I asked a stronger freind to help) These DAC J Stakes are just as efficient to hammer in 1 inch or so in harder ground with great results.
