Familiarity: I've used it several times

The quality of this Jansport backpack was good. I liked the look of it (Grey with white straps). There was enough space to fit all my gear for a 5-day backpacking trip to the Isle Royale National Park.
My complaint has to do with with the quality of the shoulder straps. If the backpack is fully loaded (38 pounds) and you have to walk in excess of three miles you shoulders will hurt because there is no enough padding on the shoulder straps. I wish I would have spent more money and buy an Osprey backpack.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I purchased these boots for a recent backpacking trip to the beautiful Isle Royale National Park. I wore these boots for 10 consecutive days without any issue whatsoever, however, I broke them in for several days before the trip because I did not want to take a chance at the island. I noticed my right boot was giving me a little bit of pain on the inside of my right ankle, perhaps because they are ankle high. At any rate, by the time I was at the island it was no longer an issue. The boots are lightweight but firm. They look good and easy to clean. Also, some customers recommend buying them a half size smaller. In my case, I bought two pairs in order to try it and choose whichever fit me best. I ended choosing the size I always use; no need to choose a half size smaller. I paid $159.00 from Backcountry.com.

I recently used this tent during a eight-day backpacking trip throughout the Isle Royale National Park. Despite a three-day rainy weather nothing got wet inside this tent. I like how easy it is to set up and it is lightweight enough. I bought it from Backcountry.com for less than the price listed because they matched Campmor sale price of $119.00.
