My Favorite piece of Gear that I purchased from Mountain Equipment Co-op

Mountain Equipment Co-Op ‘s Twitter was asking viewers today to post their favorite gear on their Facebook page.

Well, here’s my two cent on the favorite gear.  My favorite piece of gear is a Garmont hiking / backpacking boots I bought from Mountain Equipment Co-op in 1997.  I have worn them to over 20 countries over the past 12 years, and it is still waterproof.  The treads, however, is wearing down a bit.  The reason I can use it for so long is because I use it strictly for hiking and backpacking; I rarely use them on concrete roads.  I have sneakers for that.  I do go hiking quite a bit, almost every weekend in the summer.  In the winter I have my snowboard boots for snowshoeing because it is way more snow-proof / cold-proof than leather hiking boots.   The most important reason that I love to shop at MEC is because the gears they sell last for a very long time.
