Teva Sandals - Size 9 is perfect, I will pay the $100 for the more durable sole. In stock at Lakewood REI. I will buy these before my next "water" trip or if they come on sale.
Hiking Boots - I like the Topo Athletic Trailventure Size 10. These are $140 (waterproof version is $160) have a Vibram sole, generous toe box and are ideal for the light hiking and occasional 14'er that I may do in the future. Probably purchase from REI if/when Ratna and I start training for a 14'er. The colors are a bit much (Navy or Orange). Otherwise a very cool design and extremely light weight. I also tried on Altria, but really want to avoid zero drop shoes.
Arcteryx Beta AR and Beta LT hard shell. Size L is the right size, but it is a trim fit and if I put on another 10lb or really want to layer up, this shell will not work for me. Priced at $479 and $399 respectively the price point is OK. I want to try the Patagonia and Mountain Hardware Jackets.
Patagonia 40L duffle - $139 and looks as good as advertised. I will likely pick one of these up prior to my next trip.
