I purchased this bag for my daughter for her 2nd birthday last month. The build quality is great to it.

I did end up returning it before it was ever used because I felt bad for getting her one without a hood so I purchased the Trestles 30 instead. Just because I was buying myself a sleeping bag and I wouldn't want one without a hood.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I recently purchased these and have not been climbing yet on account of it being the winter. I think these shoes are awesome so far. I wear them as my primary around town shoe now (replacing my Sanuk's). I also love how the heal collapses so easy, but when it isn't collapsed it is still a sturdy shoe, this will make it great for switching between my climbing shoes and these when I'm not on the wall. But...

I can see how everyone is saying these will not hold up for Approach shoes. I am planning on going climbing this week so we will see how it goes. I am going into it thinking I need to be ultra careful to not start ruining the canvas sides or not to rough up the rubber on the toe.

Also, when I purchased them I got a half a size larger because of previous reviews. This is super important because I don't think they would've fit with my regular size. They also seem a little tight around the foot at first (I actually think I have a fat foot).

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

I bought these for my wife for her birthday. We have taken them up to Zion NP a whole bunch and she absolutely loves them. If you don't have vibram shoes they are definitely worth it.

I got her the sage khaki / prairie mist color, although you can tell they are hiking shoes, they are something she can wear around after a hike as well.

I bought this pack a while ago and use it 3-5 times a week. I love the flexibility of the bag (although it is meant for MTB, I take it hiking as well), it has plenty of room for what I use it for.

One of the best parts is its warranty, a thron bush put some holes in it while I was hiking. I called them up, paid for shipping and they had it repaired for me and shipped right back.

Great bag, great customer service. All my bags from here out are going to be Osprey.

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

I found this in my stocking a week ago. So far it is definitely well built. You can feel the quality when you hold it.

But as said before it is very heavy. You could use it as a club... or a hammer.

So ultralight bikers beware, commuters ( like myself ) its great quality for the price.

Sorry for the late answer ( I received this as a gift for Christmas ) you've probably already made your purchase, hopefully this helps other people.

The large is 5 x 11", fairly close to what you had before.

I'm not sure about the replacement keys, but as pictured it does come with 2.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was supposed to get this shirt for Christmas, but my wife decided to give it to me for Thanksgiving weekend at our family cabin. Ever since then I have a hard time not wearing it.

The shirt is cozy no matter what type of Fall / Winter you experience. Like any Patagonia clothing it is built with quality in mind and it feels like it will last a long time.

Here is to a long relationship with one of the best flannels I have ever owned.
