I'm getting into stuff.

Can this tent be set up without the tent? That is to say, with just the poles and rain fly? I'm looking at the options: either setting up the fly first in a downpour, so I don't get the mesh and inside of the tent wet, or skipping the main body and traveling light with the just the fly and poles (and maybe a footprint)/

I use this product for running/xc skiing, with a shirt underneath if it's quite chilly or even without one if it's just brisk. This jacket breaks wind almost as well as a little league team at a chili-feed. I think you could fit a thin fleece underneath this, but it is a pretty snug fit. I like that though.

The wrists are a little restrictive, pigeon-holing you into one mode of wearing, but the jacket is fantastic. However, the hood is Fantastic! with it, a small beanie is all I need for skiing even when it's quite cold out.

The pocket in the back I could take or leave. it's ok, but not great, and even a heavy set of keys bounces with you if you're running. I think my ipod nano was great though.

I got a 'military'sport version of these (still the same thing, just with the corners of the small version). I really like them. They stay on just fine, great quality, and the lenses come clean from my sweat and sediment just fine. They're my second pair of Oakleys, and I've come to trust the brand.

I like this piece. it's good for running, xc skiing, and I'm hoping to use it for some easy hiking come summer. If you adjust it right, it can sit pretty smoothly on your hips & back without a lot of jostling as you move. Also, I was able to fit a small baselayer, along with my phone, keys, and extra gloves between the 2 back pockets, and the strap pockets can hold gummies/gel easily, and the right side has a headphone port. Me gusta!

...But the best part is mismatching them!
They're cheap enough you can buy 2 sets and mismatch the colors all you want. I actually bought 3 sets, because I'm really into mismatching different colors of the same thing.

One Obnoxious Downside: These things pick up hair and fuzz like few other socks I've had, and it'll stick on the sock through the wash. My house is infested with dogs, so I don't wear these unless I'm headed out the door or in shoes. :)

I got an older version of this thing awhile back, and I really like it. at one point, a cafeteria malfunction left it covered in mustard, and I thought it would only be good for sweaty, active, by-myself use, but it completely washed 's pretout after maybe 2 times in the laundry.
It's pretty warm, but it isn't good for biking in the cold, as the wind gets through it.
I got it for $20, and I'd gladly buy another if the price comes down that low again.
