It holds a good amount of water, and works perfectly. I have taken it with me for hikes as well as ski runs. Water flows easily through it without too much effort, and seems to be quite sturdy in terms of holding up the water. Overall something handy to have for hydration purposes in the outdoors.

It holds a decent amount, suitable for a day hike. I pack in a full water bladder, two water bottles, some extra clothes as needed, some food, med kit, and a water filter for a days hike. I feel like the full bladder (I use the Camelbak Antiodote Reservoir 3L) takes up quite a bit of space in the pack which is a bit annoying, but even with it, you can stuff a good amount in there for such a small pack. Also the suspension system is amazing and works well. With a full packed all strapped in to your back, that suspension system works wonders for easing strain on you.

What's to say? It's a bright light. With three adjustable settings to suit your taste in brightness, it functions perfectly and gets the job done. The adjustable angle direction is also nice so that you can point it towards the ground and not in other people's faces. Or point it upwards for other needs. Being LED, it is quite bright, and battery life is not bad either, and you can use it a fairly long time before you have to replace them. Simple, successful, reliable, usable.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I'll admit they weren't the most comfortable to wear with my glasses, as they pressed my glasses into my face and thus put continued glasses pressure on my face. So they weren't the most comfortable thing to wear. It could be my glasses, my facial structure, who knows, a variety of reasons for it not working fully for me, but I ended up skiing just with my sport prescription sunglasses nonetheless. People tell me to not do that, but my sunglasses worked perfectly, and was way more comfortable and way less bulky. So just be cautious, these may or may not work for you.

This jacket I feel is more wind oriented with some water resistance. Warmth-wise, it's not terrible, but not super warm. It's very good at cutting out wind, and does resist light amounts of water, but it really does not insulate heat as well as I expected. It claims it is at a Warm2 rating, but my Warm1 fleece is probably warmer than this. I suspect it is because this uses Polartec Wind Pro, whereas my fleece uses Polartec Thermal Pro. The Wind Pro does it's job of beating the wind, and only a moderately decent job at keeping insulation. The Thermal Pro is the opposite. Overall, don't trust the Warm2 rating necessarily, but it is still an excellent light Flex Fleece jacket that I like that is suitable still for most general outdoor adventures. I used it on hikes, climbs, camping trips, and evens ski trips with extra layers underneath. Plus it's a cool looking and feeling jacket for casual use around the town.

These are average at best. They were definitely not as warm as I expected, and my hands underneath my ski gloves . Being made of Polartec fleece, I expected them to be pretty darn warm, as my Polartec fleece jacket is just that. Unfortunately, these did not live up to my expectations and my hands still felt cold. Really cold. Not uncomfortable biting pain cold, but nearly there I feel. Now my ski gloves could also very well be culprit to contributing to my cold hands, but I also tried them with some very thin Hestra merino wool liners my friend had, and those worked better. I only bought these thinking these would work even better and my hands would be really warm. But that was not the case. I would also prefer the fingers also be reinforced with a full leather palm as the Woolweight ones to add to the durability of it being able to be used as a solo glove. I will also say as a disclaimer that my digits seem to get cold easier than alot of other people's. Overall, I think I would go with something else and am quite disappointed in these.

I have only used these for hiking and climbing, and have even started using them for casual use to keep my legs warm on cold nights, but these definitely are great pants to have. Warm, durable, water resistant, flexible/non-restricting, overall comfortable pants to wear. These are great for any outdoor adventure you may find yourself in. I suspect they would also make great ski/snowboarding pants, but I have yet to try them out in this function. This combined with the Trollveggen Stretch Tights would make an excellent snow combination I feel. I will try it out next time I get a chance to go skiing.

These are amazingly warm. They're pretty much leggings, as they provide all the flexibility and range of movement and comfort as them, but are significantly warmer. Really warm. They work great as an under layer under any hiking or ski pants. I skied with only these and a water proof shell pant. Definitely kept my legs warm with very little bulk. Granted my legs don't get cold very easily, but nonetheless I love these for any cold mountain weather and are my go to anytime I end up needing to keep my legs warm.

I tend to get cold feet easily but these socks worked well to keep my feet warm along with the Icebreaker Skier Liner. Have used these for various skiing trips from very cold one degree weather to warmer 25 degrees and they have held up nicely both ways. The extra padding is also a plus as my shins were not as sore as when I used other socks. Always comfortable, always warm. Great ski socks.

This is my go to jacket for colder days, where it has held up perfectly fine in about 40 degree weather with about 15 mph winds, which is alot better than I expected for such a light fleece. It's also one of the most comfortable jackets I have. The multiple pockets are also a plus along with the zip up hood, everything about this jacket is just perfect and I'm in love with it. I'm sold on Norrona products simply from this jacket.
