Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have owned a Never Summer down bag for 10 years now. Though the may have seen some light improvements in that decade it is relatively unchanged. The reason for this is Marmot nailed this bag when they first designed it. The bag is fairly light for a 0 degree bag. I use this bag for early spring and late fall camping. I have used it in the dead of winter camping here in Utah and found it worked quite well. Only once have I been cold in this bag and that night was below zero. I would say this bag is quite comfortable from around 40 degrees to 15 degrees or so. The quality is spot on and I have not had one issue with this bag in the time I have owned it. I do store it in a a storage sack to keep it from being compressed while in storage. I would recommend this bag to any one who is looking for an awesome 0 degree bag but doesn't want to spend the money for an ultralight model.

I have been riding this tire on me commuter bike for 3 years now. These tires are not the most resilient to pinch flats or thorns. They do however have decent grip on dry surfaces. In the wet they still grip but you will need more room to stop with them, and you will want to ease into your turns. Over the years now I have noticed that the rear tire will start to wear flat pretty quickly if you ride a lot, especially in hot climates. I have seen the sidewalls show some signs of wear as well but this is after many many miles have been put on the tire. My impression of these tires is they are great for someone looking for a great value. If you need a 4 season tire or something that is very resilient then you may want to look somewhere else.

Hey Gjk,
The VLT on the rose lens comes in at 57%. It makes the lens an ideal all around lens similar to a persimmon lens. The lens should work well in low light and still will block some rays on the sunny days too. This lens is great for most days except for the super low light or extremely sunny days where it either will be slightly dark or too light.

Hey Killian,
If you are well built then the small should fit you better than the extra small. The suit is made with a 4 way stretch material. Though I would not say it is the stretchiest material on the market, it will give some in the direction it needs to.

I have this reel in a 1.5 and 2 diameter. I only have good things to say about this reel. It feels like a more expensive reel and the quality is spot on. The drag is super smooth. So far I have not had one problem with the reels. If you are in the market for a new reel but don't want to spend the big bucks on a more expensive model look no further. It is quite amazing the quality offered in this reel for such a low cost considering this is made in Idaho!

My initial impressions of this rod are nothing but positive. I have this in the 5 weight 9ft size and it works very well for streamer fishing. The action on the rod allows you to throw lots of line accurately. The rod is quite light weight considering this is not a top end rod from Sage. This is a great all around rod if you need a rod to do it all. Sure it is not quite as good at throwing small dries but that is the price you pay to have a rod that can do it all. The 5 weight still will present a dry well but not quite as well as some other rods on the market. If you love streamer fishing but don't want to spend the cash for the Sage One or Method I would recommend this rod for you. I must agree that the tube that comes with this rod is not the best quality but it works. With the money you save by buying this rod you can always kick down for a nicer tube. I have been pairing this rod with a the Lamson Guru reel type 2 diameter 2. The reel and rod combo work well for middle size rivers and streams. For the price that combo is hard to beat.

The comfort rating for this bag is 39 degrees F. The lower limit rating is 6 degrees F. I would say a lot of how you will feel in this bag at 32 degrees will depend on if you tend to get cold while sleeping or not. This bag will work fine in damp environments since the down will not hold onto moisture. With a pad I expect you will be fine at 32 degrees. In a hammock you might get a little cold since there is nothing underneath you to insulate you from the air, that is unless you put your pad in the hammock.

This is a stand alone short you can wear on it's own. The material is designed in such a way that it helps to increase air flow and helps you stay dry. You could wear these under a pair of MTB shorts for added comfort if you wanted to.
