The closure on the Paragon seems cool at first, but if you like the ability of getting your glove off quickly and easily, I would go with the standard velcro closure on the Forges. Much better in my opinion. In terms of warmth I find them to be equal.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

7 countries
2 months
1 bag
Perfect size if you know how to travel light and want to only have one pack.
I also had a Black Diamond Bbee pack inside for a day pack. Layed flat it took up virtually no room. Super durable, comfortable, best travel pack yet.

5'11, 160 lbs, Medium Size
Fits, but a tad snug in the shoulders, if I was layering more under I would probably go large, but Medium works well for me.
Goretex Softshell both feels nice and is 100% waterproof and very breathable. Only complaint would be that the jacket is a tad heavy.

This thing is so close to being perfect. I initially ordered the 45 L and 65L because I was not sure what size I needed. I found that the 65L was way to big and would only work as a checked bag. The 45L was perfect size for an longer trip, while still being a carry-on. The only problem I found- was that if using the bag as a backpack (the handle turns into two backpack straps) - the bag had to be fully loaded to be comfortable, if you had room to spare, the bag was not symmetrical, and was not comfortable on your back. Also no waist belt, which was one thing I wanted. I had to return both bags, but If you are looking for more of a duffle, a perfect size,and don't need the backpack straps, this is the bag for you. Super durable and super lightweight

As with all Osprey bags I have owned, this thing is bombproof, super durable, and very comfortable. I loaded it up with about a weeks worth of clothes and accessories and had plenty of room to spare. I plan on taking this bag with me as my one and only carry on for a 2-3 month trip to europe. I highly recommend this bag for travel.

If you were a fan of the old Backcountry.com Inbounds glove, you are going to love these! Very similar fit and feel to them, just a tad longer cuff and the Medium Forge feels just a tad bigger than the Medium Inbounds. Awesome durable, dexterous, and warm glove, I plan on buying another pair so I have them for years to come - just like I should have with the Inbounds glove. I was in between Large and Medium, sized down because I like to break the leather in.

One of my new favorite jackets for spring and traveling. This thing is super durable, super lightweight, and extremely versatile. I am 5'10 165lbs and went with the Large so I could layer under, it fits good with a layer under, but the sleeves are just a tad too long. I think depending on how much you want to wear under depends on what size, but I might switch to a Medium.

Looking for a sock that will not show at all when wearing your Vans or Boat shoes? These are what you want. I used to just wear my shoes with no socks, but they start to smell so bad, so I decided to get a few pairs of these, solution solved, the socks keep the shoe from smelling, and are so low cut you can't see them when you are wearing your shoes.
