Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I got a long-sleeved Wicked Lite last year and loved it, so the choice was easy when I decided to get a new short sleeve shirt as the weather started heating up. This thing is very light and does a good job of keeping me dry (even in the humid Southern US). The material is quite thin but has proven durable so far in about two weeks of time on the trail under pack straps (and for runs when I'm confined to the city). It also doesn't seem to harbor odors like many other shirts I've worn have, including some that were a good deal more expensive. I looked at a Double Wicked Lite shirt in the store last week, but I'm not sold on the side panels...the standard Wicked Lite seems to work just fine for me.

I purchased one of these to store small camera accessories for backpacking photography. I needed something that would allow me to find things easily (sometimes in the dark), but it still needed to remain as light as possible while hopefully being durable. At about 1 oz., it's as light as I could have hoped for something that stores as much as it does. Two outer zipper pockets (one on each side) make it easy to keep the smallest items separate. It fits well in the lid of my pack, allowing me to get to it quickly when needed. Despite the very thin material, I feel like it will stand up well to use on the trail.

I've had this hat for about a month now and it's already ridden atop my head along trails in the Grand Canyon and Virginia's Grayson Highlands. It's lightweight, provides protection from the sun, and is nice and breathable to keep my head (relatively) cool. The dark color (Collegiate Navy) I ordered probably gets a little warmer than some of the lighter colors when you're out in the sun, but overall my head stayed well-ventilated. When rain came in Virginia, the hat alone was enough protection for light rain and great under the hood of my shell when it started pouring, with the bill keeping the diagonal rain off my face.

Without a flexible tape measure, I guessed at my head size when ordering and got a Large--the Regular would've probably been fine given the hat's adjustability. It's been stuffed into packs and knocked around quite a bit in its first month of use and doesn't show any signs of wear--I look forward to wearing this hat for a long time.
