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

This is the start of the second Summer with these boots, and the seal between the sole and the uppers are separating on both. They now act as a pump to suck in water any deeper than 1 1/2" . They are my fourth pair of Merrell boots, and lasted the least amount of time... normally I was getting good wear from other Merrell models. I can't say I was hard on them as they were used when I was trail hiking with a light pack.
I can agree they were quite comfortable when brand new, but feel flat now. The traction is good, and very little wear on the bottom of the sole.
They are now all sealed up with ShoeGoo, and I will be replacing them asap.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

We purchased this parka two months ago for my 13 yr old son, and although he is usually a small mens size, they offer this in a size 20 boys which fit perfect ( a bit big). He has since worn it every day in the harsh cold of the central Yukon down to -46C (thats not including wind chill) so far and LOVES IT! "It is SO freakin' warm!!" were his words. Hand warmer pockets, inside pocket, great length, wind proof, water proof, great loft, warm hood, drawstrings for wind, heavy zips, taped seams...a very well made jacket!

Here we are a year down the road and the jacket itself is still in great shape...with the exclusion of the zipper that holds the hood on pulling through the stitches and the main zipper failing. Instead of chasing warranty, I have had it repaired locally and it's good to go again for the remainder of this winter...I hope!

Light weight, comfortable with convenient pockets, solid construction and great cooling. The "one-sizing" of this pack would be my only complaint, at 6'1" I find that I'm at the extreme end of fitting this pack. The addition of a rain cover would have been a nice touch too, as I had to buy one separately.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was looking for a multipurpose day pack for work, short hikes, biking etc. and the Enterprise fits the bill perfectly. Holds much more than I thought it would in the store. The belt is a bit flimsy but adequate being just a strap with no padding etc. The mesh pockets on the sides, while large capacity, do not hold a water bottle very tightly. A multitude of pocket styles inside the bag make organizing a cinch. The laptop pocket can also be used to hold your hydration pack and there is a tube opening at the top for same. All in all a great little pack that does very well as a daypack.

Extremely well built paddle, and very light weight. The low profile button and ferrule system works very well. No slop at all in this two piece paddle, feels great. I did find that the catch was too light for me, and will be upgrading to a larger blade with more surface area. I did not find this to have a powerful stroke as described above, even though I am not a competitive paddler.

I can't imagine a kayak being any more comfortable, I am 6'1", 210lbs and tried many different kayaks before deciding on this one. The deep hull is perfect for me, the seat is something I could almost sleep in! The outfitting is great, I can fit 100L/6,000 cubic inches of dry bags into the boat for several days camping. Stability is amazing, speed is not for racing, but faster than I had thought it would be. I use the boat mostly on high volume rivers (ie. The Yukon River), and large lakes, (ie. Tagish Lake). I thought I would be happy with the boat, and it has surpassed all expectations!
