I ordered 3 pair of them today, one for me, my wife, and the neighbor.  Amazon thanks you too i suppose. :)
I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed. Did they off a choice of sizes? They sort of stretch when you put them on. I originally bought Large, and returned them for Medium. When I tried on the Medium in the store, they felt constricting, but it turned out the Large was TOO loose to handle stuff the way I wanted.

I got this email today. I'm hoping it's not going to mean more difficulties. Best case scenario they improve the user interface and do nothing else.

I didn't buy some cordage today because I wasn't certain how many feet were in 10 meters...

32.8 feet  :)

Anymore I think people make stuff up as they go along... Clothing, shoe, gloves and so on are never the right size.

I can only speak for my experiences with tent sizes, but we found the old Eureka Timberline 4-man model to be about the limit for two people on an extended canoe trip.  Just enough, but certainly not an excess of room for people and gear.  Not a backpacking tent, but perfectly suitable for canoe trips.

My hands-down favorite 4-season, WOLFY APPROVED tentage of all time for two people in an extended-stay situation would be the 16 foot Sioux tipi with the Crow-style extended smoke flaps w/liner & 1/2 floor! :thumbsup:

I find that is true with a lot of things. I think the cheap floor jacks are rated higher then they can handle too. Hammocks on amazon listed as double are usually under 9'. That's okay if you're under 5' tall.

The sawyer mini and squeeze seem to fail reaching their listed gallons of filtration.

I notice too some back packs that are 45L are thin and tall so a lot of things are too wide to stuff in.

I need to study metric comparisons too. I didn't buy some cordage today because I wasn't certain how many feet were in 10 meters...

These animals don't get the credit they deserve. I recently watched a video of dogs rescuing other animals. It's incredible how many humans stood by doing nothing as the dogs instinctively dove into action.

One of the most dramatic was a Golden Retriever caught in a sluice of fast moving water after retrieving a stick. The Black Lab ran over bit the stick and pulled the dog up out of the water and saved it from a waterfall.

I've always said I love dog's more than people. As hurtful as it is to lose one, we are blessed to live long enough to love so many. I have lost 6 and have two currently. We won't be getting any more for a few years when these two leave us so we can freely travel for some time.

Thanks Orbean.  Only someone who is owned by a healer knows how special this breed is.  Of course,  I'm prejudiced.  lol.
