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

My favorite shirt! It breaths well and fits well (not too loose, not too tight). The collar is also just right (not too loose, not too tight). But, YOU HAVE TO AIR DRY THIS SHIRT OR DRY IT IN DELICATE MODE! I've had two of these and ruined my first one because I threw it in with the rest of the laundry. The fabric balled up and frayed like crazy! My other shirt has stayed very nice because I air dry it - not like it takes long to air dry, it's a thin shirt. It's not see through - I got dark colors but I'd worry about it being see-through if I got a lighter color. Like I said, I love this shirt, but you have to treat it nicely!

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small

GET 1/2 SIZE BIGGER! If you have normal feet like me, then get 1/2 size bigger. The shoe is designed with all hiking conditions (except hot weather) in mind. So, the toe cavity is shaped to a gradual point more-so than a basic hiking shoe. This makes it possible to hike on rocky terrain more efficiently.

To put it plainly, they took a rock climbing shoe concept and made it work in a standard hiking shoe. It's not too dramatic, but that's what other rating posts are trying to explain. The cavity will rub your toes unless you have toes that are thinner, or set more at an angle to accommodate the slightly pointed/firm toe cavity on this shoe. I got mine a 1/2 size bigger thinking this might be the case, and I got it right. The toe section of the shoe is also less flexible than a trail running shoe. So, if you are looking for rugged delight on rugged terrain, this is your shoe. I live in Idaho and use them year round.

They are very stylish while paying strict attention to the needs of rugged hiking conditions. Personally, I wanted a shoe rather than a boot because I prefer to wear a shoe for any condition. Whereas boots are usually too bulky for my taste. I use a boot for long back country excursions, but need a rugged shoe for everything else. This one fits the bill.

The heal support is a major factor for the shoe category. As long as the heal support is good, then a shoe can be worn in almost any hiking condition. They really focused on this particular feature as is obvious with the metal external wire that helps lock your heal in place when you tighten your shoelace. A really cool feature that makes this shoe a special one for the true hiker. A solid approach and hiking shoe for sure.

I'm very impressed with this jacket. I live in an area where we have months of temperatures below 15 degrees. This is the warmest jacket I've ever owned. I intend to wear it skiing, on winter adventures and at work. It's light as can be and allows complete flexibility of movement. Can't wear it indoors unless the a/c is on, but that's the point, right?
