Could not be more disappointed
1 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I only many BC items, and historically, they have been great, but quality is becoming a big issue lately. This is nothing more than $70 for a cheap flannel shirt thats made in China. Hear me out: I wear this to my desk job and to the bar. Nothing too taxing. I recently tried to open the chest pocket, and it ripped. I like it enough that I used the warranty to replace it. As usual, Backcountry is great about honoring their warranty. I got the replacement and it took all of two wears for it to rip again in a totally different place. I was moving my arms. Thats it. It ripped across the shoulders and now has a visible tear along one of the seams. Its not even worth my effort to go through replacing it again. I'm done with BC stuff unless they get back to making quality items like they used to.

I'm disappointed that the Stoic stuff (weird colors and all) are now being priced on par with Icebreaker clothing (both are $79 for 200 weight). They are not equivalent. For one thing, the stitching on Stoic stuff is clearly inferior. I remember when Backcountry brand stuff was shooting for similar quality at a noticeably lower price. Seems those days are over. I'll stick with Icebreaker and their higher quality product.

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

I just received the black version of this shirt. I got it while it was on sale for $19.95. At that price its a redonkulous deal. Super comfy and I think the fit is dead on. I'm not sure why everyone is saying it runs small - I'm 6', 185 and got the Large, which is what I usually wear in these types of shirts, and it fits perfectly. Not even snug. I could probably wear the medium. The quality seems to be top notch. My only concern is washing it - I worry that if I use warm water or put it in the dryer the seams will shrink and the material won't - to be safe, I'll probably hand wash it and hang dry. Otherwise, no concerns. Awesome shirt.

Beautiful Knife from CRKT
5 5

OK, first, this is not your usual everyday pocket knife. It's big. That shouldn't have caught me by surprise since they put the dimensions right in front of your face, but it still did. It's not so big that you couldn't carry it every day, just might raise some eyebrows when people see you take it out. As far as quality goes, it's an absolutely beautiful knife. Very sturdy, great blade and really smooth action when opening/closing. Not assisted, but you can flick it open with barely any effort. Same for closing. Takes about 2 tries to practice, then you'll have it. The lock system is designed really well. Everything is in the right place so that you only need 1 hand to operate, but it's still very safe. This is a no-doubt 5 star knife in my opinion. At the SAC price (I paid $30 !!!) it's a CRAZY deal. I don't think I would personally pay full price, but that's not to say it isn't worth it. I'm just cheap.

This hoody is super comfy and seems to be very well built. However, there is NO WAY it is worth the regular price. This is nothing more than a nice, stylish comfy hoody. There is nothing technical about it, and I doubt it would do much for you in harsh weather. There is barely any wool in it, so it seems a little cheap that they advertise it as such. All this being said, I paid just over $30 dollars for it on SAC, which was a great deal. If you can get it for that, I think its worth 5 stars. Anything more, and you will be disappointed. Also should mention that I sized up based on some of the reviews, but I don't think it was necessary. Wash however you want...it wont shrink.

I'm totally addicted to Icebreaker, and buy pretty much everything that shows up on SAC. This is oen of my favorites. Fit is perfect and extremely comfortable. Not sure why they didn't put thumb loops on this one - all the other 260 wieght shirts have them. But no biggy. I am 6', 180, athletic build and the large is perfect. Buy it. It will be your favorite too.
