Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large

I bought 2 pairs of the larges and they are killer. I've hiked, climbed, traveled, etc. in them and they've held up amazingly.

I'm 5'11" and usually wear 32s. The fit on the waist is a bit large and they're a bit longer and baggier than I prefer. Luckily they're adjustable. I'd probably try the mediums time. They have tons of great features.

Just one negative I can think of. The bottom pocket has a top zipper and side zipper to access the same pocket. I've lost things by not realizing the side zipper was open. Maybe it's useful for climbing or some situations but overall I'd say the side zipper is unnecessary.

Fit: True to size

Man, I love this hat. It's the perfect hat for running, hiking, camping, traveling, etc. Fit is great and the adjuster works well. The solid bill keeps it's shape even when it's smashed in a backpack. It's lightweight and seems to breathe well. I've tried other hats from REI and OR and just haven't liked them nearly as well.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've really liked both the speaker and the charger. I do wish that this would've included a battery pack though. I find that it's a bit tough sometimes to try to charge my device directly.

I've used the charger to charge an iPhone, iPod, bike light, and the speaker and it's worked great.

I've taken the speaker in and around water a lot but I don't trust the water resistance enough to put my iPhone inside it. I usually bring a really crappy old iPod in case it gets wet in there. It's definitely gotten damp inside on occasion but it hasn't seemed to hurt the speaker.

I'm 5'11, 175lbs with broad shoulders and the large fit pretty well. It's maybe just a bit looser than most of my casual tshirts.

I've loved this t-shirt. When I've been on trips I've been able to wear it for multiple days without it totally reeking. The material is super comfortable. It hand washes well.

The good...I really love the fit and the style of these shorts. They're short but not too short. Love the stretch in the material. Love the colors (I got the Vintage Blue). The materials is soft and super comfie. I usually where 32s and got the 32s and they were spot on.

The bad... These have the worst fly ever. There's a small gap below where the waistband ties but there's no velcro to completely close the fly--kind of like boxer shorts. It's really odd. I actually had somebody sew a piece of velcro there for me. Also, they're light colored and the material doesn't seem to clean very well. Granted, I took them on a river trip and got them pretty dirty but it seems that most board shorts would clean up better.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'd been using a Big Agnes Air Core but just wasn't sleeping very well on it. 2 friends purchased Expeds and raved about them so I gave it a shot. I've used it on two multi-day trips and so far have loved it. It's comfie, easy to inflate, and has a nice level of insulation. I debated getting the version with the internal pump but decided it would be nice to not have to bring the pump if I was worried about space or weight and wanted to blow it up manually. So far it's worked out fine.

I'm 5'11 and 175lbs and usually wear a 32 but the 32s were a bit tight so I got the 33x32 which are just a bit loose in the waist. Fit through the legs is perfect if you prefer slim fit or skinny jeans like I do.

These are the most comfie pants for traveling, climbing, or just kicking around in the outdoors.

My only complaint is that they don't have anything to adjust the waist band so you may have to wear a belt if they don't fit tight enough. I've also got the Zion pants which have an adjustable waistband so I'm not sure why PrAna left this nice feature off the Brions. If they had the adjustable waistband, I'd give them 5 stars.

I've used this cocoon everywhere I've gone since I got it about a year ago. It's been backpacking, on river trips, and from Morocco to Spain and back. I've really enjoyed it. It's really comfortable and has held up really well.

That being said, the stuff sack started fraying after the first time I used it and now it doesn't really work anymore which is a total pain in the ass.
