I was VERY hesitant to spend this kind of coin (even at Backcountry's prices) on a pair of sweatpants. But, absolutely no regrets. Outstandingly comfortable, soft inside and out. I did notice a little shrinkage after the 1st time in the dryer (and because I had read other reviews noting such, I took them out about 1/2 through the cycle and let them air dry the rest of the way). I am 5'6" and bought the mediums in heather gray. They were a little long (cuffed 'em an inch or 2) pre-initial wash and now that they shrunk a little after 'wash 1', seem perfect (still a LITTLE long, which I like). I should also mention that they will leave little white fuzzballs all over the place before you wash 'em the 1st time! Perfect pants for lounging around the house with some comfy slippers and a dog. I'd wear them to work if I could get away with it.

Sadly, this t-shirt developed a seam tear under the right arm the VERY FIRST day I wore it. I'm not sure if it had it when it arrived from Backcountry and i just didn't notice it when I threw it on, or if it truly gave way within the first few hours. Thanks to Backcountry's outstanding return / exchange policy I should be receiving another one shortly - hopefully the one I received was just a 'fluke' (I own other Burton t's and have no complaints). The royal blue looks outstanding (without being too bright/flashy) and had a medium that fit 'normal' (5'6" with a very 'average'build; I'm not a fan of 'slim fit' or 'fitted' shirts). Four stars in the hope that I just got a crappy one.

I give these sandals 4 out of 5 stars, ONLY because I have yet to try them in true "sandals weather". Currently 15 degrees in MN, I've only worn these around the house so far - but they were comfortable right out of the shipping box. As an 'in-lake' sandal wearer in the summer, we'll see how these hold up to the nearly daily WET use.

I got this just prior to entering the BWCA for 5 days. It boiled water VERY quickly, in about 33% less time than the 'regular' camp pot I used to use. The handle is slick, lid sits sturdily atop, and the pot's coating is truly non-stick. BUT...it was near the bottom of my canoe pack on the trip out and on its side. By the time I got home to unpack, it was, well, more oval shaped than round. Never really considered that compression straps on my canoe pack and/or the weight of what was on top of it may bend it. It's so soft that I was able to bend it back easily to 'nearly' round... Now the lid (which did not bend) fits too tight to get it off safely. Yes, I'd still recommend buying this pot, but I'll be much more careful packing it from now on.

I did have to return the first pair I ordered due to size, but went a 1/2 size up and they fit great. They are soft flex, so they were great right out of the box w/o break-in pain walking or riding all day. I ride only about 10 days a year, so I'm not too worried about wear and tear (the flex REALLY getting soft), but I might if I was a more consistent rider. Comfortable, feel sturdy, did not get cold in a 0 degree MN evening ride, and the price was right. I'd recommend them to a friend w/ similar annual ride numbers, but might hesitate to an avid rider.
