After playing numerous sports growing up, I've always been an active person. Now I get to enjoy the outdoors while cycling, running, snowboarding or softball.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

While going through my past orders, I noticed that I have had this jacket for the past 3 1/2 years. I wear this jacket several months out of the year (unless the midwest goes all subzero) and I couldn't be happier. Its been washed numerous times and comes out good as new. The decision to buy this jacket was one of the best I've ever made.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased this pack recently to replace a TNF Mentor I bought a few years ago. I was amazed at how much more comfortable this pack is compared to the former one. The shoulder straps conform very well to my broad frame, the pack rests comfortably against my back and has plenty of room to hold my necessary gear while traveling.

I was also pleased to see that they now include padding at the bottom of the computer compartment. My biggest complaint about my former TNF pack was the lack of this feature. Since I use this pack to carry my laptop and tablet (in addition to the rest of my gear), I wanted to make sure that the pack would protect them.

TNF got it right with this pack and I definitely recommend it.

I recently purchased this tent (and its corresponding footprint) to use on RAGBRAI (Bike ride across Iowa) this year. The tent gave us enough room to put a queen-sized inflatable mattress inside with us at night. It held up perfectly during a very strong overnight thunderstorm and many dew-drenched mornings. Very good air circulation when you let the wind catch the open side vestibules.

I highly recommend purchasing the North Face Rock 32 Footprint designed for this tent. The footprint kept the bottom of the tent dry and clean during even the wettest conditions during the week.

I bought this rack after researching various models among Thule and Yakima brands. I needed a strong bike rack that would hold up to 4 bikes, including the curved frame of my fiancee's new Specialized Dolce Elite. Bikes are a little difficult to mount to the No-Sway cages if a water bottle cage is attached to the seat tube of the frame, but it works.

This rack was perfect for everything that I needed and I have been happy with this purchase since the day I placed it. I am very impressed in how securely the bikes are held even while traveling on the interstate or back roads. I highly recommend this rack!
