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

I just replaced the tape that came on my bike. It was long overdue. I chose this because of the price and the reviews. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the tape. It feels great. I was not looking for something with over the top padding. This tape has just enough to feel comfortable but not squishy. I'll have to wait and see how it wears, but my initial impressions are very positive.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I tried this out on a neglected chain I had on an old bike. I put it through a couple times using the provided solvent and I was surprised to see how dirty the chain was. One nice feature of this tool is a little magnet that attaches to the bottom of the cup and pulls down some of the debris. After drying the chain, I lubed it up. There is no question that it improved the performance of the chain.

I think it still might be wise to get a new chain, but between this and a good chain lube I think I will be able to squeeze some more life out of this old chain. It seems to be running very smoothly now.

I won't hide the fact that I got this shirt because my last name is Smith. I really have no brand affinity towards Smith other than that. The quality of this shirt is top notch. I got the Medium because I usually wear medium. Sometimes medium shirt fit me a little tight after a wash, but I have had no such problems with this shirt.

The poles themselves are straight forward. They are light and are a great value. I feel like I've pushed them pretty hard, and they have stood up to my abuse. What I love most about these poles are the straps. I love that you can disconnect them from the pole without having to undo the velcro. I'm probably going to look for a second pair for my wife.

My wife used this pack on our last backpacking trip into Southern Utah. She seemed to like the fit and style, but I can't say much more then that because I didn't pack it. I'm writing this review because I was very jealous of design. The pack has some great features. There are plenty of straps and pockets to pack gear. There are some great internal pockets that help separate and divide the different compartments. This particular size fit enough gear for a comfortable 3 day two night trip with room to spare. I will be checking out this same pack for men.

Pros:
- I absolutely love the pivoting hip joint and shoulder straps. It makes the pack easy to manage and very comfortable when fully loaded. This Feature gets 6 out of 5 stars.
- The pack is surprisingly light weight.
- Belt Pockets are a great place for a camera or other small handy items.

Cons:
- I found myself consistently wanting a few more straps to attache my gear.
- No bottom entrance into the main compartment.
- I had a sleeping mat fall out and get lost that I packed in the compression pocket. I admit that I am at fault for not packing it properly, but there are not a lot of other options.

This is not a complicated pack. It gets the job done. It has some issues, but overall it is a solid pack.
