The Clifton was justifiably a huge seller for Hoka, and the best selling shoe at Running Warehouse last year. It combined the massive cushioning that Hoka were famous for, but at a weight that other manufactures would label a racing shoe. That cushioning-to-weight ratio is hard to beat in any shoe. So the replacement, the Clifton 2, is not only important to Hoka, but to all of us that love the Clifton. Here’s my review and analysis of the Clifton 2, along with a comparison with the original Clifton, the Hoka Odyssey (the Clifton’s twin), Bondi, Mafate, Conquest, and even the Asics GT 2000. The shoe price widget will find the best price in your size for the new and original Clifton, as well as others. http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Hoka_Clifton

Don't know what I'd do without it
I use it for running 14 miles and up, when otherwise my skin would be chafing right off my muscles. Thank God for Body Glide. Also, says right there on the package that it works great for feet. I would have never thought of putting it on my feet, but yes, it actually does help. Great Product.

Won't run without this hat now

I was not sure what to expect with this hat as I had not seen it before ordering.

Turns out it is my favorite running hat now. It's very lightweight and clearly pulling sweat from my head and getting it to evaporate as much as it can to keep the head cool.

Orange is great to aid visibility. probably will order another.

Epiiiiiiiic! Good model

It is a super awesome model that I got during summer vacation, and that was the only entertainment I had. When I got back to school, I brought the Snowtrooper with me and I traded it for Darth Vader, who I later traded for a Sandtrooper. What I regretted most of all. Snowtrooper is sooooooooooooooooooo awesome, and whatever you do, do NOT trade it or you will regret it just as I did. Overall awesome model.

Great for one person! Very easy set-up, good quality, compact tent
By Kshopperon
Size: 2-Person

I did A TON of research and read a lot of reviews here on Amazon before finally deciding that this was the tent I was going to purchase. I was looking for a decently priced, easy to set-up, portable tent for one person. I wanted to use it for backpacking as well as other campsite adventures. I just used it for the first time this weekend so I don't have experienced feedback yet I suppose, but thought I would share my findings so far while they're fresh.

This tent was great for my needs! I have camped several times before so I am not new to it, however this was my first time where I would be sleeping in a tent alone, therefore transporting, setting up and taking down the tent myself. I took it on a up north camping trip in the woods this weekend in northern Michigan with some friends. Extremely easy to set up! You really can do it in minutes. I took my time with it while having a beer though, so maybe 10-20 minutes for me. Everything you need to set up comes with it.

I did not use the rainfly because there was no rain in the forecast but I'm sure it works great, this "awning" type is what you want. I also didn't put it on because I wanted to be able to look up at the stars at night, and let me tell you, that was AMAZING. Such a clear night and in the woods of northern Michigan you can see an insane amount of stars, along with the Milky Way! That was just too cool to be able to look at them through my tent ceiling. The windows of the tent were great too. I'll see if I can post a photo of my awesome spot in the photos section.

Although it did not rain at all (yay!) there was still a ton of moisture from the air/dew. So much that if you left your sleeping bag out (like my friend did) in the open for an hour or two, it will literally become wet like it did rain. My sleeping bag that I put in the tent right away still got some moisture on it, but there is nothing you can do about that if there is that much moisture in the air. May have been better if I closed the windows and put the rainfly on but it really was no big deal at all.

As for the actual sleeping space inside, it was totally fine for me. I am a little over 5'7" and I would say medium weight, not fat but not skinny. It was exactly what I was looking for, just enough space for me to sleep and my backpack. I would not recommend this as a two person tent though unless you are using it with a sig. other and want to cuddle all night and look at the stars=) In my opinion, it was the perfect amount of space for one. Two adults would probably be tight. Also, I used one of those self-inflating sleeping pads (regular size) and that fit well in there too.

Although my walk to this particular site was not long at all (only 5-10 minutes) I would definitely use it for backpacking. (That was what I had in mind when I first purchased it.) You would need a backpacking backpack, it won't fit inside a regular sized backpack. I'm sure you could strap it on the outside of a regular one though. Doesn't come with straps but the bag has handles so you could strap it on by putting a rope or whatever through those.

Awesome figure

The detail is amazing on Daryl Dixon's head sculpt and also his motorcycle. The only minor issue that I see is that you have to wrestle his crossbow in his hand in order for him to hold it and also for him to grip the handles on the motorcycle. Other than that, the figure is really awesome and very articulated.

A great approach to good nutrition
his is an amazing product! Relatively quiet, it seems to do an amazing job of reducing fruits and vegies to a liquid. This will enable me and my grandson to get great nutrition with a minimum of time and fuss. Also, the booklets give a wealth of relevant information for good eating habits. Many worthwhile and easy recipes.

Also, this comes with a nice variety of containers. Everything is very easy to clean.

Considering the extremely high quality and all the bits and pieces that come with it, this is a great value. I am very satisfied.

Trekking  - 
 
Good value, Sturdy Poles
By Rayon 
I purchased these poles for the occasional treks I like to take near my house in the hills. They aren't the biggest of hills but can get pretty steep and rocky in parts. These have been of great help and have allowed me to go places I wouldn't normally trek to. My hikes are only and hour or two long and have only used these on about 5 hikes or so but so far they have held up well with no visible permanent bending and they still collapse well for storage. So far a great value and have recommended them to some of my friends. PS - There is also a small compass on the tops of each of these but they seem to not work very well at all! Do not buy these for the compass feature ;)
