Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this knife because I wanted a small, light knife I could take with me for climbing. I bought it, stuck it on a carabiner, and pretty much forgot about it, until it poked me when climbing. The rivet that attaches the blade to the body had loosened up, and the blade just fell open. It's not supposed to be able to open when it's attached to a carabiner, but it does. Having an open knife attached to my harness isn't a great situation for climbing. Got rid of this piece of junk knife, and replaced it with a (1st gen) Petzl Spatha. A bit bigger, but much better quality.

These shoes are comfortable, and are good for approaches, but they have some durability issues.
The rubber rand on the outside edge does not extend far enough. The shoes have a fabric rand that peels away from the shoe.
This rand began to fall apart on my first hike, and after 2 trips, it was peeling back badly.
The inside rand extends further, and protects the front of the shoe. They need to re-design it and make the outside rand also extend back further. The fabric rand just isn't durable enough. A couple miles over a talus field, and it's pretty much wrecked.

This is a terrific bag. It is very lightweight and compact. The 32-degree temperature rating is quite conservative, and you could easily use this bag in colder temperatures. The bag is reasonably roomy and comfortable. It's good value too, when compared with bags of similar quality.
