Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was "on call" at work and there was a big swell. I didn't want to just sit at home when there was waves so I through my iPhone in this bad boy, stuffed it in my wetsuit and hit it up. After surfing for 2 hours (and not getting called in) I went back to the car.
Opening up the dry bag, I noticed there was some condensation on the inside of the bag and my phone was pretty wet but still working. Thank goodness!
When I got home I through my phone in a bag with my scrubs in it to carry everything inside. When I looked in the bag, I found that I had thrown my phone in a yogurt that had blown up from the heat of the car. The yogurt plugged up the headphone jack and the phone stopped working. It survived getting moist in the bag only to get ruined by yogurt! After a week it did start working again!
Summary:
Sack isn't %100 waterproof
It's %99

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

Did around 10-15 miles miles per day of hiking in these socks and they were amazing. Less smell than other socks. Wicked well. Warm. Wears well. good construction. Got some compliments from some ladies about a "Left" and "Right" sock. :) Much better price than the competition. I'm Size 11.5 and Large fits perfect.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I didn't want to risk anything with something I trust my life with so I bought this. My life is worth more than saving $8 (although I have no doubt using a non-solvent marker works fine).

Seems to be holding up fine after one big climbing trip in Yosemite. The bottle resealed fine for future uses and was easy to apply.

NOTE: The bottle has reverse threads!!! I couldn't open it then after nearly breaking the plastic bottle with two pliers I figured it out...and it was very easy to open. So it's not lefty...loosey! Just a heads up.
3 stars = adequate for the job

These are worth far more than they cost! You use them in the house, backpacking, and camping. You can't go wrong. I bought one for a trip, then ordered three more for the entire family. Titanium is great, but expect it to bend a little. You just have to bend it back.

This is my son's second year using these goggles. He was two when we got them for him and he will be able to use them for a few more years. He wears them every where and loves them. He does have a huge head and we got the same size of helmet for him as my 5 year old :)

I've been riding tubeless for about 5 years now and the entire time using Stan's. I've ridden over goat-head bushes and the Stan's just seals up the holes (on the same ride my buddy had to walk home). Another time I took a 1/2 inch stick through my wheel and never noticed till halfway through the ride I noticed my front tire was getting low. So I stopped, aired it up, and kept going. When I got home I realized there was a stick in my wheel!! I had to replace the wheel, but was able to finish the ride. Stan's is awesome. I always carry an extra tube in case I get a blow out on a ride. Then I just pop in the new tube and keep going like normal.

Very durable. compact. well made product. Perfect size for wine bottles and just about anything.
We bought 3 of these to go with the Kelty Basecamp Kitchen and they fit perfectly. We also use them to for picnics, running to Trader Joe's, and just about everywhere. They have a clear label spot on the top and when we used all three I labeled what was in each and it was really helpful and easy to stay organized. Great little accessories and we love them!

We used it for a big beach camping weekend a while back and we cooked for 40 people. It is actually surprisingly compact when folded up for how much space you get. (we own other table that is only a table and it is almost the same size when folded up.) We also ordered some of the Binto Cooler bags to go with it and they work great as a system or by themselves. It is easy to set up and take down. I used old livestrong rubber bracelets to hold the table together when you put it in the bag so they don't unfold. We use this for 4x4ing, beach camping, car camping

My other table is made out of the same thickness of aluminum and I warped it when I cooked with a MSR whisperlite on the table, so be careful with those types of stoves. They project heat downward and might wreck the table..

These chairs are great for my family because they are so simple and light. You can pack them up so fast and they don't take up hardly any room. We bought them for my wife and I to use.
We use them for: the kids soccer games-they are great because we usually lug so much crap out on the field these little chairs don't take up much shoulder space, jeeping/4x4ing-they don't take up much room in a vehicle, car camping, hanging out in the garage or around the yard, beach, general chillin

Pros: light weight
Easy to carry- our 2 year old carries it eveywhere
Comfortable even for adults
Small
Rebuildable/fixable: You could easily make new fabric if it starts to wear out
No bag to try and stuff the chair into-nice easy sling that's always attached and comfortable to carry.

Cons: more expensive than a $10 special
The fabric is starting to rip (we'll probably make new fabric or reinforce it)
I wouldn't recommend it for an overweight person or if your 7 ft tall (it's comfortable for me and I'm 5'10" 170 lbs)
