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

This was exactly what I was looking for - a swimsuit top you can move in and not worry about things popping out. You can go on a hike comfortably with this on then jump in the lake at the end of the trail. Plus it's cute. The back design is super flattering. The color is way off on this site. Search for it online for more pictures. The color is better than shown. It runs small. I usually wear a small in swimsuits but had to get a medium in this. The small was super tight on me and I have a small bust.

These towels are great. They are fairly absorbent, soft to the touch, pack small, and are light weight. Having said that, I will say that other reviewers exaggerate how quickly they dry, and how absorbent they are. After reading other reviews, I half way expected the small towel to be able to dry an elephant and be ready for round two after 5 minutes. I got the L and it didn't wrap entirely around my waist (32" waist), which is fine. After a shower, the L dried my body fine, but was damp by the end. It dried quicker than a normal towel, but not unbelievably so. Bottom line; they work well for my purposes. I wanted a towel that did the trick, was light weight, and packed small for backpacking trips. I'm happy.

My wife loves this pack. We got brown sugar (which is actually a little bit darker than in the pic), and the color is awesome. Really sturdy pack, super comfortable, and pockets galore. The pockets are so low key that they don't seem to scream (I have lots of organizer pockets!!!), but they are spacious and allow you to put items you frequently use in easily accessible places. There is also a small zip (mesh) pocket on the inside of the top lid (not listed in the specs "pockets" section). It's not huge, by any means, but is a nice little feature. The frame contours perfectly around her hips for a super comfy fit. Osprey has done it again.

Good Pillow. Worth $45?
4 5

I picked this up yesterday so I can't testify to its longevity yet. However, with Backcountry's return policy, I don't worry about those things as much as I used to. All in all, this pillow is what I had expected, with a few minor exceptions. The memory foam isn't really memory foam. It seems much more like regular foam to me. The pillow is quite comfortable, but I wouldn't say that it is more comfortable than my home pillow. However, it is much more comfortable than other travel pillows I've used (most of those flatten). It packs down to about the size of a 1 liter Nalgene (see uploaded pictures). On the pictures I've pulled out the sewn in stuff sack to show it's flattened size. One final note.. this doesn't bother me at all, but might bother some. I noticed that when inflated (or deflated for that matter), the bladder does make "crinkly" noises when you move around on it. Nothing too serious, but it might bother some people. The micro brushed fabric is quite comfortable and soft. All in all, I'm pretty pleased with this pillow. It has more innovation and comfort than any other camping pillow I've seen, but am not totally sure if I believe it is worth the $45.
