Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great for the office - nice comfortable fleece, looks great in a business casual environment. Fit is definitely on the bigger side, I'm generally between a medium and large (6ft, 180lbs) - slim fits don't work for me - I ordered the medium and its perfect. Wear it most of the day, five days a week. Love it.

I've been searching for the perfect hiking pant for some time - this is definitely it. Sits up on the waist with a very comfortable fleece lining. The cargo pockets have a slim profile when not in use, but hold plenty when needed (perfect size for a passport with cash / travel docs). The material of the pants is synthetic, light and comfortable. Doesn't absorb odor, which is nice (put that to the test in Africa with one pair over 6 days, no showers and plenty of dirt). Food, sweat, blood, dirt all come out in the wash, no problem. I love them so much I bought a second pair.

Used these as camp shoes in Peru on the Inca trail and while climbing Kili this year. I love the versatility - you can wear them barefoot and stay nice and cool, but still get the tread as you're climbing around a campsite. As it cooled off I would throw on a pair of wool socks underneath then and my feet would stay nice and toasty. Very happy with my Keens!

Bought the Medium - its very rugged, carries all kinds of crap. Took it to Tanzania for the Kilimanjaro climb - seems like most of the folks with my on the plane and on the trail used this bag - most were way beat up which suggests to me it will last a very long time. Searched through several duffles before settling on this one, and I'm glad I did. The only drawback for me is that the "stuff sack" that comes with it is flimsy and difficult to put the duffle back into. Other than that, no complaints.

Took the stratos 36 to Peru for a 5 day hike through the Andes then to Tanzania to climb Kilimanjaro. I'm 6" tall with a fairly normal torso length, and the medium fits me perfectly. Osprey nailed it with this pack. Very durable, very comfortable. Built in rain cover is perfect, and well placed. Also like the walking pole positioning on the shoulder strap, makes it very easy to put poles away when they're not needed. The ONLY drawback I've found with this pack after plenty of travel around the world in the last six months, is that it doesn't sit upright due to the 'airspeed' back. The back is curved to allow for air to flow off your back, which is very helpful in the heat - the trouble is, when you put the pack on the ground it will fall forward because of the design, so if you need to get something out of you have to prop it up while digging around. Still, this pack is amazing, and EASILY worth five stars - great value, great pack.
