Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

As others have said, a great sock for a great price. Wear them all the time to work (w/ slacks & dress shoes) and also out on the trail. Have held up remarkably well, provide decent cushion, and can be worn a few days in a row without stinking (for when you're feeling lazy). Have since picked up about 8 pairs and wear these almost exclusively.

Recently snagged this watch in the Drab color on Whiskey Militia for a killer price and am convinced it is going to be the first of many Nixon watches. Build quality seems great and the watch has some noticeable 'heft' to it but doesn't feel at all heavy when on your wrist.

Have always owned either black or silver watches -- was a bit hesitant about the drab color scheme, but it looks great in person. Will pair easily w/ any outfit.

As already mentioned, the hour markings are a polished stainless steel (at least on the Drab model) and just enough to catch your eye without being obnoxious.

The only minor gripe I have is with the backlight. A bit weak in illumination compared to other watches I own, and only the center lights up (not the hour markings). Then again, anyone over the age of 10 should be able to tell the time w/o using hour markings. Regardless, it's an amazing watch and would recommend it to anyone.

And for anyone wondering... the watch comes with 2 additional links and pins. While they recommend having a dealer size it for you, the pins can easily be punched out. Use a small deadblow hammer/punch and punch the pin out OPPOSITE from the side with the slot (looks almost like a small flathead screw)

Have quite a few of these in my wardrobe in addition to the long-sleeved version. Great shirt, extremely comfortable and am always finding myself wearing them. Only issue I've noticed is in regards to long-term durability, but then again it would be the same case with any light weight wool gear. My charcoal colored shirt gets the most abuse/wear -- thrown in the wash w/ the rest of my day to day clothes, and after about 6 months I started to notice small holes along the bottom front. Barely noticeable and would probably be a non issue if I treated it like the rest.

5'10" and the medium fits great. Athletic fit to it, so you might want to size up if you're a bit pudgy around the mid-section.

Have the 7mm version that works just fine on my 45-ish pound mutt... not that I expect it to break, but in hindsight would probably have preferred the 10mm version just out of personal preference. Regardless, it's a great leash and would recommend it to anyone. Only improvement I could think of would be some sort of swivel -- or somehow training my dog to stop turning in circles

Was able to snag one of the last few in Black for $20-something which was a huge plus :)

Overall I think the jacket is great, and perfect to add to your closet for a good all-around fall/spring jacket. The mesh lining isn't the greatest, but unless you plan on going shirtless under this thing, it's a moot point -- the fleece around the cuffs and neck is a real nice touch and very comfortable.

The pockets are well placed and are of reasonable size. While others have complained about the smaller zipper on the inside, I like it as it seems less prone to snag on things... pocket is perfectly sized for a wallet/ipod/phone/etc.

Canvas outer material gives it a bit of a rugged look, but the overall cut & design gives an urban appeal and wouldn't hesitate wearing it around town or out to the bar. The brown stitching featured on the black jacket adds a nice touch of character.

As far as sizing goes, I took advice from the other reviewers and am thankful.... this jacket can run a bit on the large side. I wear a medium in everything (5' 10", 165 lbs, 38" chest... all around 'average'), purchased the small in this and couldn't be happier. That being said, you do need to size accordingly. As is, fitting a thicker layer underneath might be a bit snug, but as an 'around town' jacket with thinner shirts it works like a charm.

Have yet to try this in windy or rainy conditions, so until then this jacket only gets 4 stars. Definitely would recommend this jacket to anyone (just remember to size accordingly!)

Haven't had a chance to try these out yet, but can comment on the great quality and say that they are damn comfortable -- If it wasn't for the cuffs, I'd probably wear them to bed!
The ankle/cuff reinforcements are a nice feature to improve durability -- the material seems very similar to my kevlar kayak spray skirt and could see it holding up very well to abuse.
Both the right front and rear pocket have an additional interior pocket -- wouldn't trust putting anything in the front w/o it falling out, but the rear seems like a good place to keep your phone/multi-tool/etc. in place.
As others have mentioned, they fit true to size. 32" waist here and the M's fit perfectly.

Only gave 4 stars as I have yet to see these in action so wouldn't feel right giving a perfect 5 and also did notice a few stray threads on some of the stitching. The stitches were in no way flawed, just had some excess hanging off the end so I had to nitpick. Otherwise, couldn't be happier with the purchase!

Bought a second CamelBak bottle to have on hand as my other stays clipped to my bag for class/around town. After a year, my original has seen better days but has held up great despite all the scratches and scuffs. Did have a mishap with the bite valve leaking, but a quick email to CamelBak and I had a free replacement within a week or two. Pick one (or a few) up, you won't be disappointed!

Wasn't planning on relying my life on this watch, so I didn't have an issue picking up such a relatively inexpensive watch. Basically just wanted something that would hold up when outdoors (camping, kayaking, etc.) and this has more than fit the bill. The compass/thermometer/barometer, while not perfect in any way, are a nice addition, and for the price you really can't complain. If you expect pinpoint accuracy, look elsewhere -- but if you want a great, inexpensive watch for outdoors, look no further.

Basically what everyone else has said is true...

Extremely comfortable to lounge around in all day, but also nice enough to wear out and about in town.

Definitely an 'athletic' cut, so plan accordingly. 5'9" & 165 lbs and I went with the Medium. Close fitting in the torso (which I like) but w/ the thumbhole inner cuffs, the sleeves have a bit more length to them than your standard hoodie, but still reasonable.

Didn't give it 5 stars for 2 reasons... #1 is the price -- if it wasn't for SAC, I definitely would not have paid full price for this. #2 is the mesh inner pockets... some might prefer them, but I can't stand the feel of them. Those complaints aside, an overall great hoodie and would recommend it to anyone the next time it pops up on SAC

Not sure why so many people have had problems with this accidentally opening. I tried dropping/banging/throwing/etc. as others have mentioned and still have yet to see it 'accidentally' open. It takes a decent amount of pressure to get the blade started, and don't really see how anything short of throwing it onto concrete could possibly get it to open. Carry it in your pocket w/ the clip and you won't have to worry.

The blade is super sharp, and the deep asymmetrical serrations should be rather effective.

The dual finger grooves give a great grip and the knife seems to be well balanced.

The only thing I don't like about it (the only thing keeping it from getting 5 stars) is the blade finish. The black titanium nitride is a bit too glossy for my taste and shows dirt/oil/smudges well, though is purely an aesthetic flaw. All in all a great knife
