Larger Sizes

Most of the ideas in the other items above are great, but if they don't fit, who cares?
I'd have Sidi Adventure Gore-Tex if they came in 14E (EU 149). They don't.

I like Wunderlich's products, but I had one issue: I actually live in Germany, but had to buy from the US site; the German site wouldn't accept a US credit card billing address (APO).:huh

I like the setup. I use custom-molded ear speakers and the wired mic. Speakers plugged in, Garmin paired for directions, iPhone plugged in for music (no calls allowed!).

It does indeed work quite well.

That's how I made coffee in the Army, but on a much larger scale (15 gal. pot). Quality control is your choice of coffee.

Kifaru Slickbag
