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

I tried these out but although they are light, my food tasted weird / I could taste the utensils. I returned them and bought the GSI Stainless Steel Ring Cutlery - 3 Piece from our local MEC store. Basically the same thing, just a little heavier, but food taste as they should!

I purchased the 2 wt and its very supple. No line memory....what I was surprised with is that the 2 wt does not come with welded loops. I assume because it is a 2 wt, you need all the delicate presentation you require without spooking the fish. Loops can potentially scare fish.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I washed this in with our 2 Gore Tex jackets and ski pants. It does work but you will need to use the dryer to set it in. The fabric does feel a little coated and I wonder about the breathability. I washed these in at the end of the winter season in preparation of the next winter season. I'll report back on the breathability aspect of the garment. Otherwise, I'll try the spray on next time.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

We own a number of down jackets and at our local MEC store they recommened to launder our down with Nik Wax Down. We tried it and this stuff is great! Everything smells great and removes stains from the jackets!

I looked for a box to sit on top of my SUV and found the LoPro. This box is amazing as it is just barely low enough for me to get through the garage door without having to worry about taking it off each time. I love the dual side entry and the solar LCD lighting for those early morning arrivals. This box is light but will require two individuals to install on top of your SUV. I can now fit up to 5 people in the car with all their gear!

I returned this product because it was too hard to place it on my SUV by myself. Otherwise, carrying it (place your shoulder through the opening) is sufficient and stable. I would recommend to get the matching spray skirt as its a pain to get water into the kayak.

These pads are awesome for car camping. Easy to clean (especially when my son threw up on it in the dent), and sleeps like a mattress. I've even taken them to the inlaws to sleep on the floor....its much better than having a sore back from the couch. You can't use this backpacking, its just not realistic. Overall, one of the best purchases from Thermarest!
