I have a few fleece's but wanted a light weight 100 wt fleece, this was the one I bought it on sale. It is just what I would expected I think all fleece is pretty much created equal so I doubt it is worth the premium for the mountain hardwear name. If I had it to do over again I probably looked for a little cheaper fleece or even gotten a heavyweight merino wool for the same price. Granted the fleece is more durable than the wool. That is my 2 cents. Would have given five stars for less money.

Thins is my new favorite baselayer. It feels fantastic and manages odor very well. It is very slim fitting, so if you plan on wearing as an outerlayer or around town, consider sizing up a bit. I would give 5 stars but it seems fragile, as it has a few small holes from getting in contact with velcro in the washer!

I really like this light. I bought one for my wife, liked it so much I bought one for myself, loved it so much I bought one for Christmas presents! It is comvertable on the head, is good for running, it doesn't bounce all over the place on your head. It is barely bright enough for trail running and no where near bright enough for mountain biking. However, for around camp, running on smooth relatively smooth trails, seeing in the dark, reading, etc. this light cannot be beat. Batteries last well also. I have owned two other name brand headlamps, and they were not as good as this one. Would have given 5 stars if it were a little brighter, although I haven't had a better one!

I used this pack to hike in for a basecamp type trip. 8 miles in and with about 50 pounds (7 days). It was overloaded but showed no signs of wear. Created a hotspot on my lower back. But that was probably bc it was overloaded (or my pants). The hike out with less food was perfect. I liked it so much, I bought the womens version for my wife. We both wore them into the grand canyon, down to the river and back out. They were great. The pack sits away from your back in the middle, and allows for fantastic cooling. It was definitely appreciated in the canyon. It is cooler than wearing a camelback.
