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

Just got the G50 to replace my TNF Bionic which had to be returned bc the zipper was broken. I opted to give this a shot for several reasons, 1. My wife has a Bionic, 2. Every collage kid has a Bionic, and just wanted to give something else a shot since I had the opportunity. This does run larger then other jackets as I was an XL in the Bionic and I ordered a Large and it fits fine other then the arms are a little big (I'm only 5'3). The lining of the G50 is softer then the Bionic; however, there seems to be less of it on the chest area then the Bionic. The pockets on the G50 seem to be oddly place as compared to the Bionic where they seem to be placed higher up on the coat.

Those are just my first impressions and have not got to put it to the test with the elements. I will update my review once I get to be exposed to various elements.

I decided to get these slippers because my wife got a pair of the Emu Stingers and I saw how comfortable they looked. Th slippers are quite comfortable, but they do not seem to be made with the same quality sheepskin as the boots are made from... it is not as plush. If it matters to anyone these are not Australian made like the boots, they are Made in China (what isn't made there these days). If Backcountry gets the Emu men's Stinger Mini's in stock, I will be considering returning these slippers and exchanging them for the Stingers as they seem like they would make a much more comfortable slipper.

As for the size, I am typically between an 8-9 depending on the brand of shoe. Everyone on here that said the slipper ran on the small side had me nervous but I went with an 8 and they are actually a little loose (but a smaller size wouldn't fit.) So IMO I would say they are true to size.

First ever aftermarket roof rack system I have bought. At first I was overwhelmed with how to install it but I found a video on youtube and it made it a lot easier to understand. The instructions Thule includes are not very detailed and kinda hard to understand in my opinion. Once I got the hang of it it was quite simple. The only pain is the measuring. It was a little difficult to judge the tightening tool which is supposed to tell you when its at the right tension, because I thought I had it right but the Rapid Aero cross bars looked like they were bowed in a little, so I loosened them up a little and they seemed to unbow. Now I can't wait to get my kayak stacker up there and get in the water.
