Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

If you find yourself wondering, "Umm, should I pay that much for a pair of sandals?" Yes, by all means, get the Chacos! These things do it all. Their thick soles allow for use on trails or if you are just taking a walk through the neighborhood. I'm glad I finally talked myself into getting them.
Comfortable?...Oh yeah!
Durable?...You bet!
Freakin' Awesome?...Holy Cow, Yes!

I just got this watch a couple of weeks ago and so far, it is a great one. I read many reviews before I decided to get one. I got the all black military one because it looks more classy than the others. A lot of people have complained about not being able to read the time in low light conditions with the all black face. Yes, they are correct. It is difficult to see when you are in a dark place or are outside at night. However, in those cases, use the backlight feature...that's why the feature exists. I have yet to set the altimeter/barometer feature, so until I brush up on how to use it, I won't know how well those features work. I can say that the compass is spot on. However, I have yet to be in a situation dire enough to solely rely on it. I would suggest taking the ole trusty "manual" compass if you are going to be out in the woods on a hike or hunt. As great as it is, I can't bring myself ever to rely solely on technology. This is my first Suunto watch that I have purchased and I'm very pleased with it!

I have a pretty large head and it fits me just fine. It covers everything but maybe the tips of my earlobes, but you can always pull it down a little further. Hope this helps!

This is a great day pack for short hikes. Very good quality. Well made. My only complaint is that I wish it had more pockets, but with its size, I understand why it only has one. I actually use it daily for books, magazines, and laptop to take to work with me. *Note: I'm very careful when I have my laptop in it because it's not designed specifically for that. Bottom line: great pack! I wouldn't expect anything less from CamelBak!
