Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used this pack for about 2 and a half years now, and I'm pretty happy with it. Sure, it's heavier then other packs, but with the extra weight you get a ton of features, most of them useful. It has lasted through 2 week long trips in Colorado, trips in Utah and Wyoming, as well as a ten day trip in New Mexico, and during all of them it was bush-whacked with, fallen on and scraped up, and constantly abused, and the material has totally held up. the lid/fanny pack serves its purpose. The suspension is pretty good, and it's nice that you can swith the shoulder and hip pads out for better sizes, but I stongly prefer the comfort of the suspension on my brother's Atmos (which is lighter). All in all, great pack, and has interchangable suspension, but is a little heavy for 60L. Worth my money.

This knife is great. I've used it thoroughly since July 2012 and all of the features have held up great.I like that the scissors and knife are accesable from the outside, however the nail-catch opening style found on the knife is somewhat annoying. I'm no expert on blade steel, and I don't pretend to be, but the 420Hc steel came crazy sharp out of the box, stayed sharp for a while, and sharpened easily to an impressivly sharp edge. the other tools do thier jobs, I've used all of them eccept the wire cutters, but they seem attiquate. The lanyard holder used to get in the way when I tried to close the knife part, so I took it off. The weight is pretty light (it's about 1/2 the weight of the Leatherman Wave), yet still feels very sturdy and fills the hand comfotably. I've taken it on several camping trips, a rafting trip, and a canoe trip, and its been fine, no rusting or similar problems. I'd say this knife is well worth the money. Leatherman is a very well trusted brand, and for good reason. All of their products that I have tried have been exelent, and this particular one is top of the line in nearly every aspect.

This cookset is a good one. The pot heats water well, and it cleans easy with the non-stick coating, however i usually just boil water in it. The coated handle on mine melted a little bit when I cooked over an open fire. The provided spork is flimsy, and it is easy to jam your thumb pretty good. I really like the bowl, and the provided sleeve. The pot lid can also be used tupperware-style and keeps food and stuff from spilling in your camp while youre looking for something in your camp. It stores a Snow Peak Gigapower and an MSR fuel bottle easily, even with bowl and spork. I dont use the stuff sack, but I image it serves its purpose.

For the price, this text excels. It might be heavy for a two person/ three season, but the materials are hight quality, the design is strong, and it comes with a footprint included in the cost. I'm about 5' 11" and I have enough vertical room to sit up/ kneel, and enought space for 3-4 of similar-sized friends sit and play cards with. This tent has survived several car camping and backpacking trips in the Rocky Mtns, mostly week long ones. The rain fly keeps the water out, and you can take it off and feel the breeze if the weather allows. The stuff sack can be hard to work with, but such is the case with most of tents. Sometimes I but the tent in a large compression sack without the poles. Good tent, great price.
