We got our first snow today so I layered my Marmot Kitzbuhel over my TNF Wind Wall fleece to take the kids to the bus stop, it was 32° with light snow flurries, but I felt warm. The bus was late, we spent 25 minutes in the cold but I felt very comfortable in my vest, mind you, I didn't have on any hats or gloves, but I didn't feel cold.

I plan to use the vest as an outer layer for cold weather aerobic sports, and as a mid-layer for skiing. The vest is well-made, its outside pockets are fleece-lined thus very warm, while the 1 inside pocket holds keys, change & a full-sized iPod. As a bonus, the fit is very flattering.

I got this for my toddler's playhouse but we got much more. The lantern has 2 levels of brightness plus a strobe function, we used it for trick-or-treating this Halloween (it was pitch black), we had it on strobe, it was so bright that neighbors said we could be seen from a great distance. Now we use it whenever we take the kids out for evening strolls, strobe when we are in motion and constant (very bright) when we need light. The lantern is very compact, when compressed it is about the size of a pack of cards and fits into any jacket pocket. A lot of light for such a small size. Very versatile, highly recommended.

I bought this bottle for my active 4-year-old to bring along to his various sports classes, its the perfect size as 0.5 liter is significantly larger than his kiddy sippy cups thus ensuring that he will not run out. It's easy for him to use and the bite valve prevents spillage or leakage. The bottle fits nicely into his school backpack, 0.5l should be sufficient when he starts full-day school this fall. As not many kids use Camelbak my son can easily identify his bottle and is proud of his "adult" bottle. So far the bottle has survived his rough handling, the snap open valve is a cinch even for his little hands. I would recommend this bottle.

I bought this bag for long trips with my 2 toddlers, and for shopping trips to the United States. It did not disappoint at all; it is very well constructed, and its capacity is incredibly large. On a recent trip to the US, we had 40-50 mail order packages containing a year's supply of kids' summer & winter clothes, ski outerwear, toys, books and a pair of rollerblades; the bag easily accommodated everything with room to spare.

The adjustable dividers are very useful and fold flat when not in use. With both dividers in use the bag is divided into 3 sections, this allows us to neatly pack each child's clothes while the 3rd section is used shoes & toys.

The bag is very versatile, its large main compartment accommodates large or long equipment and its robust construction is able to withstand airlines' sometimes rough baggage handling. I would only caution against airline weight restrictions, when fully packed, our bag weighed close to 90lbs which may be too much for some airlines although we have not encountered any problems on trans-Atlantic or trans-continental flights.

Overall a great bag, highly recommended.

I bought a bunch of these to pack my munchkins' (2 & 3 yrs) winter clothes for a 2-week Christmas trip, and love them. I managed to stuff 3 pairs of ski pants into a size 4 sack, and ski jumpsuits each fit into a size 3. I wonder why I hadn't bought them before. They are also great for organizing small items like hair ornaments and toys.

They compress bulky clothes so well that we managed to pack everything into our bags without exceeding airlines' allowances. I have never been able to pack so much gear into so few bags. I highly recommend them.

I bought a few of these to pack my kids (2 & 3 yrs) clothes for a 2-week Christmas trip; when we got back Stateside I immediately ordered a few more because they were so useful. 1 color for each kid, keeps their different clothing items (T-shirts, long johns) organized and easy to find. The cubes also serve to "compress" clothes so that more can fit into a suitcase.

I use the Half Cube to pack the kids' change of clothes for the 10-hour flight from Europe, it made things easy to spot while keeping my carry-on organized.

The Half Cube is also useful in the diaper bag as diapers & wipes fit nicely in this size. The carry handle makes it easy to bring diapers and toddler into bathrooms without having the lug the entire bag.

Highly recommended, buy them in different sizes and you will find uses for them. We have at least 10 and that's still not enough!
