I use daypacks for carrying schoolbooks, business materials, and for hiking. I don't find it surprising at all that this is the most popular pack in the Patagonia daypack line. The laptop sleeve doubles as a hydration bladder, there are two drink holders that are useful for stashing items for readily-accessible gear. I had some concern about the front vertical zippered pocket, but have found numerous uses for it! All in all, well worth the dough!

Although I don't wear them for hangovers, these pants are made of some sort of fabric conceived by a person with the height of comfort in mind. Velour, fleece, velvet, you have all been shelved in the museum of comfort!

As for the comments regarding size, I ordered according to the sizing chart and they were spot on. Sizing up may not be a bad idea if this is a concern, because they are:

1) lounging pants, and;
2) there's a drawstring

Plus, if they don't fit, just swap them out.

I've been using the Luft sweater as a base layer for both commuting and outdoor use, including winter cycling, hiking, snowshoeing, and XC. It handles moisture well, and is a perfect match with a good, breathable shell (I pair mine with an Arc'Teryx Theta AR).

Size UP with this jacket--I cannot emphasize that enough! I bought a medium the first time (my normal size), and could barely zip the coat up. Now I'm in a large, and I love it.

I see other reviewers are mentioning the stitching coming apart and the fill coming out; I have yet to see that happen. If that is the case, you should send it back and get a replacement!

My girlfriend has taken to wearing it under her Triclimate when she walks her dog, because she says it's so warm and comfortable. That's a significant endorsement, because she gets cold when its 70°F outside!

I walk in my pair of YAKTRAX about 2-3 miles on a daily basis. They aren't designed for trail running, so don't expect them to hold up against rocky, technical terrain. For low-volume road running, they're fine, but they truly excel as a commuting tool on icy sidewalks.

Lastly, don't be that guy (or gal) that leaves them on and walks inside of a building with tile floors - you'll find yourself flat on your back and totally embarrassed!

I was apprehensive to purchase this beanie, since I thought it wouldn't hold up to sub-freezing temperatures, and I thought the fabric would be irritating. Both presumptions were completely wrong! This is *the* most comfortable beanie I've ever worn, and has kept me nice and toasty in teen and single digit temps! Buy buy buy!
