Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this over the Nemo Obi 2P because the Nemo was too small. This tent is perfect. I used it all summer while hiking through Bulgaria. It's incredibly light, easy to set up, and very roomy. The vestibules are very nice. THe fabric is super thin, and can be damaged if anything abrasive keeps rubbing it, so be careful there. Had no problems with leaks during rain. I couldn't be happier to be honest. I didn't waste the money on a ground tarp, i just used a tyvek sheet that works fine. Really this is the perfect tent for 2. I'm 5'10" and my girlfriend is about 5'6" and we're both thin and had plenty of room. Only reason not to get this tent is the price

it works just like anyother buff/zub whatever brand. I like it for the classic pattern with the BC goats on it. Quality is really good, I don't have a problem with the edges curling like a different one I had. I have the red and am pretty happy with how it looks. It works great no matter how you use it, really not a reason to not have one of these.

So this shirt has an odd fit... it's tight like a form fitting atheletic shirt, but the sleeves come down pretty far... like almost to my elbow. It looks a bit odd and I doubt I'd ever wear it by itself because of this. It's a bit scratchy despite a few washes and me air drying it. Not sure why, I'm sure it will feel better after a few more. This is a pretty solid shirt functionally though, I used it as a base layer under a Paclite Gore tex OR jacket and I was comfortable from the upper 50's up to the mid 60's before I had to vent the jacket. Pretty pleased.

Big fan of these guys. I used them most recently for a few days on the AT. would switch between 2 pairs every 12 hours. They dry quickly, I didn't have any blisters and they kept my feet comfy. Also had no problems keeping my feet warm early in the morning and late at night. The medium is a tad too big for my 10 size feet. Still very pleased with them. Seem a lot sturdier than some of the other merino socks I've owned as well.

I've used this several times, it's definitely a good product for the price. I always air dry it after washing, it's super soft, keeps me pretty warm and is more durable than expected. It fits very well, I'd say slightly looser than an athletic fit. I've used it as a midlayer under a shell and as my outerlayer. It's worked fine for both depending on the temps. I like how as the day gets hotter it doesn't keep me too warm, almost like it adjusts as the temp changes. With other similar weight items I'd have to strip them a lot sooner in my hike. I highly recommend this.

I bought this with the hopes of using it with my girlfriend. We were debating between this and the Big Agnes Copper Spur 2. I decided to go with this as from what I understood it stuffed down smaller and I like Nemo products. It also looked really good. Here's what I found...

The fabric is really thin, and really light. Definitely want a footprint with this. It's pretty easy to set up, the vestibule space is nice. I do not like the jakes foot system or whatever it's called for attaching the poles and clipping on the fly. It was a bit annoying. I could live with the pole system but clipping on the fly was just a pain in the butt. I'd prefer the standard clips over that.

My biggest gripe is that the thing is so small and cramped. That review that says perfect solo +dog tent is spot on. I'm 5'10" and skinny and my girlfriend is 5'7" and with just us and no pads or sleeping bags it felt tight. Very little room inside. That was the dealbreaker for us so I sent it back and I'm grabbing the Big Agnes instead.

Positives for this tent:
Very light, looks good, packs super small (has a stuff sack and the poles clip to it), great breathability, pretty easy to set up.

Cons:
small, weird clip system, pricey

I love these. I'm 5'10" and 140 and the 30's fit perfect. THey aren't baggy or tight, just a good fit. They're really comfortable, I wear them all the time. I can wear them hiking or around town. You can't really lose with these. Definitely a sturdy pant, I'm not remotely concerned with holes or serious wear from using them.
I got the chert which is a pretty odd color...

These are really comfy and pretty warm. Used them as a base under pants and was fine while sitting around camp at around 35 degrees. Usually I just use them as my sleep layer. I'm 5'10" and 140ish and the small fits well. My one gripe is the just slip down. No matter how high I hike them when I bend over there is definitely some ass crack showing. I guess maybe a little too tight? They're comfy so I just go with it

I had a Brunton stove that was really good: lghtweight, small, powerful, and sturdy. Somehow lost the stove but not the bottle. I bought this guy and am blown away. It's smaller and fits into my little kettle perfectly. It weighs nothing, primes quickly and easily, and works flawlessly. I really love it. Boiled 2 liters of water in minutes.
The construction is really good. The legs are a bit flimsy, I bent one but straightened it with no problem. If there isn't something on the stove it is easy for the tension of the fuel line to tip it over.
I can't recomend this stove enough. It's just really really good.

These are pretty good. I dig the look, they're pretty comfy but seem to run a bit large, between a size and half a size. They dry pretty quickly and are comfortable with or without socks. If you use them as a water shoe they're pretty durable, I have my doubts if they were used as a running shoe or something like that. Very very light weight. I look forward to using these to replace my chaco's as I'm not too big a fan of them. I have no complaints with these besides the price, definitely a bit steep for what you get.

I bought this to replace a Golite 800 fill down jacket I had. I was really impressed with the Golite, it compressed well and was really warm and I beat the heck out of it. Had some leakage problems but that's about it.This go around I decided to add a hood and also bump up the price by about $75...

It was completely worth it.The fit is perfect, just a bit bigger than an athletic fit on me. I'm 5'10" and 145lbs and got the small. It's incredibly warm, I was really impressed with that. Just a t-shirt under and I was good to go. Cuts wind a lot better than my previous one as well. I think my biggest pro about this jacket is that the construction is phenomenal. There is no leakage. I haven't had any at all. I'm very impressed and will try more Montbell prodcuts in the future.

I got the adobe colored one which I don't see here anymore but it looks great to me.

First thing, this is very light and not that thick feeling. It's very warm though! The fabric feels nice, it has a nice fit, and it looks really good. I'm 5'11" and 140lbs and the medium is just a tad big, but that's how I like it. A small would probably be a more athletic fit. I haven't had the problem of fleece falling off and i've tested wearing it for several hours over white shirts. Make sure you wash it and dry it correctly, that might be the problem. I look forward to the weather getting cooler again so I can wear this more!

I got this for free with a TNF Base Camp duffel. It's awesome, it's a bit bigger than similar style beanies but it doesn't itch at all and it's very warm. I love the reversible aspect, and you can't tell which side is inside out, the seams don't look weird. It's a good quality beanie, well made. I quit wearing a marmot one in favor of it.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought a large orange one for my upcoming trip to Australia for 11 months. This bag fits a lot. I have 2 pairs of shoes, around 25 pairs of shirts and pants, 2 jackets, socks, underwear, and hammock with straps and rainfly and there is still some room to spare. The construction is incredibly durable. It's pretty comfortable to wear for short times using the backpack straps, this will also make it easier to tote around when you;re in a hurry. When I bought it, it came with a free reversible backcountry beanie. The beanie is awesome too!

edit: I took this bag to australia as my only luggage for a 9 month trip. I fit 2 pairs of shoes, 10 shirts, 2 jackets, a 65l backpack, 5 pairs of shorts, lots of underwear, socks, a few books, laptop, camelback, and toiletries in this thing. I think the weight was around 47lbs. It was easy to pack, it was definitely full but the compressions straps helped me out. the backpack style shoulder straps made hauling it through the airports and such a lot easier. THe airlines beat the hell out of it, but it remains intact. A lot of scuffs and such but nothing that isn't just aesthetic damage. I stand by my 5 stars.

Grabbed this off SaC for $90 and am incredibly pleased. As luck would have it as soon as it came in I was off to the beach for the weekend. It was insanely windy, I had on a light nike hoodie and the wind cut through pretty bad. Threw this bad boy on top and couldn't feel a thing. As soon as I got back home it poured for 2 days. I was soaked from the waste down, everything else was nice and dry. The water just beaded up and rolled off. I love this thing, especially for what I payed. Also, the hood is nice and big and actually covers my forehead, unlike most jackets I've had.

I'm 5'11" and 135lbs. i have a runners build, bought the small and it's got some extra room for layers and the sleeves are a bit long, overall good fit though.
