Was a little apprehensive at first, but after wearing it for days both whitewater kayaking and mountaineering I can safely say I as quite happy with the helmet.

The chin strap is simple and does not get in the way of my ears, unlike many other helmets, also nice and light..even with a camera mounted on the side of the helmet.

I've used this jacket in some shocking conditions during multi-day hikes and mountain biking, the jacket performed great.

Sits well on the torso, has a fantastic cuff and hood system, best I have used. Soft feel to it as well, not the usual harder gore-tex feel we are all used too.

Not sure how it will last for years to come as it feels fragile, but so far have been through some preety think bush and no problems.

My new #1 backpack for extended outings (I have many, many packs)

Have used this extensively over the last 6-8 months on long mountain bike and hiking expeditions, great pack. It has relegated my previous #1 pack (Osprey Talon 33) down the pecking order. Two front pockets are nice and large, the mesh is a bonus as so you can now see what is in the pockets. Nice large rear side pockets, easy access for a water bottle (I tied up the one side pocket so it could hold easily accessable bars, gels etc).

Great for the lower back, as it sits nicely on the lower back with the external frame (I never thought I would get an external frame again).

I would give it 5 stars but two things are missing, there is no quick access to the main storage area - side zip, zip from the back would be good. The other is there is no external access to the water bladder (one thing that made the Talon series great).
