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

Got this for long days on trails, and while it's really well made and very comfortable, it just turned out to be a little too minimalistic for me. The Bakwin vest is probably more my style, as I apparently have a sad need to carry more stuff than is entirely necessary. Impressively thought-out and constructed, though, and this entire line seems great.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

Great sole, with good grip and comfort, and well-made overall...but the collar is weirdly rigid and dug into my ankles. Had to cut my runs short, and now they're sitting all lonesome (and grimy) in the closet. Seems to be the only Hoka shoe designed that way, though, and friends have said that other models are awesome, so definitely haven't given up on 'em.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Love LaSpo, and have been wearing their shoes for years, but...this thing was pretty poorly made. The mesh on one side dug into my ear, the panels seemed a little off, and it had been mangled somewhere along the line, with a big 'ol dent in the crown. Returned it.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought this as a replacement for my 15 year-old Baileyworks Courier, and fully expect the Metropolis to last as long, if not longer. This bag is built like a tank, and is almost as big. I've carried a week's worth of groceries in it, stacks of library books, and a case of beer with room left over. And the wide, cushioned shoulder strap carried that weight comfortably, and combined with the stabilizer, kept it from shifting as I rode. A bomber, bomber bag. It is huge, though, and at 6'2" and 175, it covers my entire back, and can be a bit smothering in the heat. But it's maybe the best bag of its kind, and well worth the price.

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

Earlier this month, with temps in the single digits and bitter winds howling through town, the Frost Smoke kept me completely toasty. Crazily light for its warmth, the reinforced shoulders and elbows make it significantly more durable than some of the other Montbell jackets. The fit is less athletic, though, and unlike my Thermawrap, which hugs close, the torso fit on this one is definitely more boxy. I'm 6'2", 175, and there's plenty of room in the body in my size Large. But I love it anyway.

Great bags. Yeah, they're not as hip as some, but they're solid, well-designed, and reasonably priced. But, be warned, if you're like me and fancifully imagine that the L just isn't quite doing it, the XL is stunningly XL. Just short of a body bag. Can't imagine using it on a regular basis. But if you need to haul, say, several watermelons, a case of beer, and a side of beef, this is your bag. Provided you can wobble home with it all.

A completely bomber carry-on. Light but rugged, brilliantly designed, and amazingly capacious for its size. Along with a messenger bag for my laptop and work-related dreck, it's packed everything I need for a week of travel. Think I may ditch the old messenger bag, though, and get the wheeled version as well, for a complete coverage duo. GoLite's got it wired.
