Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

A simple, elegant design that's pretty much bombproof, insulates for hours, and that easily accommodates my AeroPress. Have dropped it several times and generally knocked it around, but it shows no signs of injury. It's the shizness. Pricey, sure, but infinitely better than anything else out there, and exactly what I was looking for.

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

They're not exactly pleasing to the eye, as they look like the mutant offspring of some doomed affair between a pair of clown shoes and a cheap sleeping bag, but they do provide very affordable comfort. The 3XLs are just right for my 12.5-13 feets. As long as you don't plan on doing anything more than scuff around the house, they're bomber -- warm without being smothering, machine washable, and with a non-skid sole. I'm perfectly satisfied.

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 6'1" 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.

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 6'1", 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.
