Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

Got this jacket before heading west to Colorado. Tested in the mountains of Vail and Breckenridge. The piece was very warm with just a 100 weight fleece undernieth. We hiked to a frozen lake with temps. around 30 degrees and 20 mph wind gusts. I was very comfortable. I got a large and the jacket is cut to be more athletic, which I like. It makes the jacket less bulky when layering and it gives the ability to look good around town. The piece is well built and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was bc I would have liked a chest pocket. The piece is still great without it but it would have been an added nicety. Definitely a jacket to consider!!

I was very happy with w this product as both a mid layer and outer layer for heavy workouts. However after a week of ownership and wear, I noticed the moisture wicking fabric on the back and underarms started to get a pilling like effect from abrasion from normal wear. This brought into question the longevity of the piece so I had to return it. I really like the large collar that you can breath thru. It was a nice touch. I wish the wind proof fabric made up the bottom of the jacket to offer more abrasion resistance…

The light was great and very bright and I just couldnt pass it up for the price I found it at. But I recently sold it for the new Petzl MYO RXP and I couldnt be happier. The Brunton's beam is just too narrow. I got caught on a hike at night on a pretty rocky and technical trail, and the narrow beam just didnt show enough of the trail. It really needs diffuser of some kind. Plus, by having the 4 AA's on your head, its alittle heavier than normal. Nothing to unbearable but it really needs a third strap to keep it from slipping..It comes with a separate battery pack for C-batteries but that was just to heavy to carry.

Love this bag! Just got back from a camping trip where it rained non stop. Some rain actually came in through the roof vent on my MSR MoRoom tent. But an awesome fact was discovered and that was that the bag is somewhat water repellent right from the store. I woke up in the morning(totally toasty) and there were beads of water on the top from where the water came in from the torrential rain. But whatever bag you get make sure you have great insulation between you and the ground. My REI pad only has a 3.2 R-value but i went to walmart and bought a $5 foam mat that worked perfectly. The temps only got down to around 34 degrees at night but it felt colder with the constant rain. Its not the lightest bag and probably not the bag your looking for on a long trek, but for the money, you cant go wrong. PS. the draft collar makes a huge difference at keeping your warmth in..a feature in any bag to look for..

Went on a 30 mile hike on the AT and the pack performed great. I think I over packed a little but the pack held everything comfortably! The stretchy spandex outer pockets really allow you to cram a lot more than you might think into little areas. The inner pocket that holds a hydration bladder really came in handy. I put my MSR 4L bladder inside and was still able to put my tent, cooking supplies, a few clothes and food inside the bag. The only thing I put on the outside was my tent poles.. Great bag

The defuser on the RXP really does a great job of spreading out the already bright beam. When you hit the boost button with the defuser up, it really lights up the night. On the lowest setting, which is 8 lumens, you can easily cook or I even was able to hike on less technical parts of the trail. I don't even use the 9 or 10 setting because its just to much and for the fact that those two settings aren't regulated.

Just got back from a trek on the Appalachian and we would average 6 miles a night before we would set up camp. The light preformed marvelously!! I really like that you can set your own light modes. I have mine set at 1-4-and 7. The light is awesomely bright I never need to use the highest setting. And if I do, I just us the boost feature. And when those 160 lumen come on, it really lights up the woods!! I gave it 4 stars because nothing is perfect. Its not the most water proof, but hey, Im not using it for scuba diving. Also the rubber button can be a bit tedious, but thats just knit picking. Definitely recommend!!
