Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I absolutely love this solar charger. I am carrying my iPhone, Go Pro, & speakers in the backcountry. I just strap the solar panel to my pack and stick the battery in my lid and let it charge all day while I am on the move. The panel can handle rain and the battery is waterproof. The battery has a large capacity in a small packaging which is unusually in the solar charging world. I usually get about 4-6 iPhone charges out of a full battery. You can also charge 2 devices at the same time. I usually plug in my phone and what ever else I want to charge when I go to bed and when I wake up everything is charged up for the day. I absolutely love this piece of gear. I take it with me everywhere I go.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I just got this headlamp last week and took it out this weekend. I loved how super bright the high beam is for such a small headlamp. Plus it is water proof which is a huge plus for while I am canyoneering. Having the red LED is a plus at night so that bugs do not dive bomb my head and I love the dim able white LEDs for around camp was nice for reading and cooking. Overall a nice durable, waterproof and bright headlamp

I was a little skeptically when Thermarest came out with sleeping bags. I have loved their pads for many years, but was unsure the bags. After getting in one I fell in love with it instantly. This sleep system allows you to attach a pad that is either 20" or 25" wide. I like this because I can use my backpacking pad when I am backpacking and my car camping pad on car camping trips. The foot box and hood can move independent of the pad. This is huge plus for me because tend toss and turn. So when I am moving around in the bag the pad is not moving the bag is. I can even curl up in the fetal position and bag will move with my body. The weight is great at under 2lbs. I have slept in a lot of bags over the years from, Marmot, North Face, Kelty , etc. and I have to say that this is by far the most comfortable bag that I have ever been in.

I used this last summer on several backpacking trip in Colorado. I used it to charge up iPhone up every night after using it all day for GPS, music and camera. I attached it to the outside of my pack while we hiked all day and it charged up over the course of the day. I get about 1.5 charges out of my iPhone 4S on a full charge. I usually charge it up at home before my trip via USB to make sure I have a full charge before I go. The product is rugged with the rubber over molding and the nice case it comes with.

I Have been using this harnes for about 2 years. The harness is very comfortable. The PVC butt protector is great. It is finally starting to show some wear. I think after this season I will be replacing it with a new PVC but protector. It has 2 large gear loops that have plenty of room for everything I need to carry canyoneering. The belay loop is set in a position so that you device does no twist. I love the easy adjustable buckles for taking your harness on and off easily. Also great if you are using a wetsuit and have to adjust your harness all the time.

Got these chairs last summer. I got two of them last summer and love them. They are built very very well. Not like the crap you buy at walmart. The chair is super comfortable. It was 2 cup holders. One of them can hold a nalagen. There is also a bottle open attached which is handy. The bag is also really nice. It is well made, has an extra storage compartment and a comfy strap for carrying it a ways to a concert.

First off this ski rack is beautiful. It is low profile and has smooth edges. The rack comes with all the hardware you need to install to a factory rack or round/square bars. Locks are also included. The button to open and close is easy to use even with big mittens. This rack is also over sized to fit wider skis. Most of the ski racks out there can barely hold 4 pairs of skis when they say it carries 6. Skis are getting wider so they are having to make wider ski racks. If you are looking for the best ski rack on the market then look no further.

I got one of these for my wife's 2011 Outback. Out of the box it was pretty much fully built. It only took about 6 mins to install it on her factory rack. I loved that I did need to buy any adapters. I only had to get locks. I had some laying around. The rack work great. It is easy to load bikes and look pretty good also. It is also easy to take off an transfer to my truck when we need to carry extra bike on a road trip.

I had a set of Yakima control towers on too of my 08 Toyota Tundra. Was a lot of wind noise even with a fairing. The noise was cut by 80% when I added these bars. They look really really good. They installed really easy. The Yakima control towers were a little easier, but not by much. The bars are made of aluminum so they will never rust. In conclusion they look great, reduced the noise and will last longer then the Yakima or Thule bars.

I love the fact that you never have to pump. The filter is lighter then 90% of the filter on the market. The filter is 1.5 times faster then most of the filters on the market. It packs down really small. Plus no pumping. To clean all you have to do in reverse the flow to back flush. I have been using this for about 2 years and can rave enough about this product. I have been on backpacking trip with 10 people and we used this one filter only for the trip. After the trip almost everybody asked what that filter was because they wanted one. The filter does not have a carbon filter that comes with it, but this year they introduced a carbon element as an accessory.
