Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this jacket and used it on a few 14,000 climbs. It is super light, packs down small, and does a great job of breathing when you are working hard. I use is at one of the many layers I bring on a climbing trip so having it be light is a big plus. Fits well, breaths well and keeps the wind out - everything you'd want in a softshell.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I recently bought this pack and took it to climb the Grand Teton. It is super functional, and incredibly light. This is a stripped down design which works great for summit days or a single overnight. It keeps the weight down by keeping the bag simple -just one big opening - no compartments, side pockets, camera pockets, etc. Its great for what it's designed to do, which is carry your essential gear with the minimum of weight. I found the shoulder straps comfortable for the 20 mile round trip carrying about 25 pounds of gear. Overall I'm super happy with it.
