Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

Overall I think these boots are great. I wanted a boot sturdy enough for backpacking and light enough for day hikes...these boots fit the bill. Over the course of 2 days, I backpacked 16 miles with about a 25 lb pack. I did get a bit of a hot spot near my ankle from the edge of the tongue of the boot and/or the metal lace gromet, but with a little relacing technique, I made it go away. I am thinking that once the boots get broken in a bit, this will go away. The boots are nicely padded and appear to be made well. My last boots were Salomon and they lasted about 15 years...I am hoping these do as well. Can't wait to hike more trails in them. I recommend them.

I enjoy camping year round and needed a bag that could keep me warm, but wasn't as confining as a true mummy bag. This bag is semi-rectangular which gives plenty of room to move around, yet still tapers at the bottom which helps with heat retention. The bag has great loft and is so "puffy" you feel like you're sleeping in a cloud. The full length zipper is great because you can vent the footbox if your feet get too warm. This bag kept me plenty warm in temps as low as 30 and have no doubt it would perform at lower temps. The stuff sack that comes with it is actually a stuff/compression sack which is an added bonus. The zip-off hood allows you to customize your bag if the temps aren't too cold...great feature not seen in other bags. Highly recomend this bag for car camping (too bulky/heavy for backpacking).
