Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I previously just used webbing to hang my hammock, but these make the task of putting up and taking down a hammock 3 times as fast, and there are no knots to worry about! The loops are spaced right next to each other so you can easily dial in your fit to within about 2 inches. These XL straps will get you between just about any two trees you could hope for, and now you can save your webbing for the real stuff.

What can I say, Multitools are a must-have on bike rides. Get one for each bike and a friend so you never get stranded. The only downside is, due to its compact nature, sometimes the tools are a little short and that can be annoying. However, if you are tight on space, having this is a million times better than having nothing!

This jacket is soft and the perfect weight for chilly Spring/Fall nights. To be honest, I run fairly warm, so this is good for most winter days as well. Between this and my thermoball, the only time I wear another jacket is powder days on the mountain.

I love Mountain House meals and this one did not disappoint! I recently decided to take one of these with me on a 24 relay race in case the usual race snacks weren't cutting. Boy was I glad I did! It hit the spot after those hill climbs. These were actually better than the biscuits and gravy I had at a restaurant the following morning. I also like them better than the MH Skillet meals, tho they are good too.

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

"I wanted to replace my Forerunner 205 with something that could act as both a GPS watch and a fitness tracker. I looked at several FitBit models, but after reading and watching several reviews, I decided that the Forerunner 235 had everything I was looking for and more. The GPS tracking works well and is intuitive to setup and use. The tracking for steps and heart rate also works great and gives me a good sense of if I've been active enough for the day. One of my favorite features of the watch is the smartphone notifications. I'm not interested in a full on smartwatch, so just being able to see who is calling or texting is perfect. You can't respond from the watch, but it's still nice to be able to know who is trying to reach you. I also love that I can customize it through the IQ store and have downloaded a new watch face that I liked better than the default one. Overall, this has been a great upgrade from my old GPS watch and gives me the functionality of a fitness tracker and some of the conveniences of a smartwatch."

"I received these, and was so excited to go climbing in them. I put them on only to find that they run extremely small. I wanted them to work, but you could see everything through them. I am planning on switching them in a bigger size, but haven't gotten around to it yet. I received the ropes print, which is quite amazing and the colors online are very close to what it looks like in person.

"This is my go to sweater. It is very comfortable and super cute. It is a relaxed look, but doesn't look sloppy. It is sooo soft. Everything about this sweater is amazing. If you have ever bought anything Free People, you know its going to be amazing! I generally wear XS is everything and went with XS and it fits perfect.

"This is my favorite hoodie of all times. It is comfortable, soft and so cozy. I usually wear everything in XS, but tried it in both XS and S, but ended up with the S. The XS was just a little bit too tight for how i thought it should fit. If you want it to be a looser look, like the models in the picture, i would definitely size up."

I gave this as a gift:
"This is my favorite hydroflask. The colors are amazing and the size is perfect. It goes everywhere with me along with the straw top. The only down size is that it doesn't fit in cup holders. I put ice in it and it stays well over 24 hours. I got the color Citron and it is amazing. It certain light, it looks lime green, and others in looks yellow. My favorite color of theirs so far."

Gave this as a gift:
"This underquilt is amazing! I have only used it once but have feedback to share. The night i slept out, it was about 40 degrees. I didnt get cold all night. I usually have to put a sleeping pad in my hammock with me and hope i dont get cold. I used only my underquilt, and my sleeping bag and i was toasty all night. I would definitely recommend this.

I was originally planning to pass on this bag, since I already had a wheeled carry-on, but after my wife's showed up at the house, I couldn't resist. I packed this thing to the brim for a week long trip and was a little concerned the flight attendants might have something to say about it, since it is technically larger than they allow. I threw it on my back and walked right through the gate with no issues, and it even seemed to fit in the overhead bins better than most others' carry-ons. The extra loops were great for attaching extra carabiners and even strapping a day pack to. In between trips, I think this will make a great climbing bag.

We took this and the Natrapel spray with us to Puerto Rico, and it definitely worked in keeping the mosquitos away. These are convenient to carry in pockets or purses, and great for a quick fix while out and about, but they seemed to dry out pretty fast. I had a hard time hitting all my exposed areas with one of these before it dried.

We were traveling to Puerto Rico and wanted to make sure we didn't get bit. This was great 'cause it was small enough to carry on a plane, but was still enough to last two of us a full week. It seemed to work as good, if not better, than the DEET spray our travel companions used. We came back with less mosquito bites (none!) than them, despite being in and out of the water and kayaking near some fairly swampy areas.

If you're debating getting these, just do it! After losing several pair of sunglasses while kayaking and canyoneering, I finally decided to get a pair of Chums. Now I'm kicking myself for not spending the few dollars sooner. Just order them now. Get one for every pair you have. It's worth it, I promise!
