    those glasses you chose aren't my style at all... but I dug around the site and found some other sunglasses on a similarly huge sale ($20 for $120 glasses) that I liked a lot. Baldy and I both ordered a pair...

    thanks for the heads up. ;-)

    I ordered ski gloves from them once. They sucked. Bled blue through to my hands and only lasted two trips before the padding wore out. The brand name was Colombia, a brand I have had luck with in the past, but I think Colombia dumped there screwed up gloves on Campmoor at "unbelievable sale prices" cuz they knew they were crap. :flush

    I bought three pairs of sunglasses. They may be seconds, but I can't tell. They look and feel good to me. The CO2 fit under my helmet better than the ones I'm using now. :coo:

    Thanks for the tip, I'm a happy campmor.

    I bought two pairs before heading to Australia (although a far cooler look :cool: than the olde-fogie ones fish picked out) and they're awesome. I know what all the girls are thinkin': too bad that dood's married.

    :arg Oh no! I picked a fight I can't win. Been meaning to get a pair of Kalahari boots I can wear to Alice's so you guys will admit you know me (okay, maybe not), but when nobody's looking I'll prolly be back in the mostly hiking boots.
