I bought these about a year and a half ago to go canoeing and I like them. They are extremely comfortable so I would definitely recommend them. They are not that cute though. I got the black and purple ones and they are pretty ugly in my opinion but I love them with all of my heart so who cares.

The things I didn't like were that they are on the bulky side and don't dry as fast as I'd hoped.

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

I bought this as my first pack because it was on sale. I don't regret the purchase at all. I bought an XS (I am 5'3") and it fit well. I think my torso is 16". I recommend going to a store and getting sized before making a purchase if you don't know your torso size.

Anyways. I wore this for 2 days on my first backpacking trip and it was okay. The pack is nice and I like it but there is a hydration sleeve and my reservoir didn't fit well. There is a little clip to hold your reservoir in but I can't clip this unless the hydration sleeve is empty. Doesn't really matter though since the water is pretty difficult to get in and out of that sleeve. The clip is pretty useless. Other than that its good. I like the front pocket thing where I could throw my jacket and I liked the hip belt pockets since I could store my camera and trail map in there.

I bought this since it was on sale but I regret it. I bought it to go on a backpacking trip, which was why I regret it. If I bought this to go car camping I'd be extremely happy with it. I used it on a summer night in a hammock (with a sleeping pad under me in the hammock) and it did the job. I was warm enough through the night. My friend has the mens version and he had no sleeping pad in the hammock with him and he was cold (but he was warm sleeping on the ground with it just a week before). This sleeping bag is fantastic if you want it for car camping. For backpacking, it took up way too much room.

Long story short, I'll continue to use this sleeping bag for camping trips, but for backpacking I think I'll have to spend a bit more money and get another bag that packs down to a decent size.

So I used this for the first time over the weekend and I like it.
Its warm, it folds up like an accordion, and it gives some cushioning on the ground. The thing I don't like is that its bumpy. I am a stomach sleeper, so when I sleep, all those bumps are pressed into my face. Its pretty uncomfortable, but its not awful. If your sleeping bag is cushiony at all it should help a lot.
As far as warmth goes, I had a shitty walmart style sleeping bag and it was 40 degrees at night and I was sort of cold, but I'm the kind of girl that is wearing a sweater when my friends are in t-shirts.

Overall it does what it needs to do. It kept me a lot warmer than I would have been without it and I am happy to have purchased it.

Up until last week, I loved this reservoir. I have the 3L one and I am in love with the magnet feature. It makes it really easy to drink while riding my bike, and it keeps the nozzle from flapping around.

Unfortunately, last week the cap stopped functioning. It has this blue ring that keeps the cap attached to the reservoir so you won't lose it, but for some reason that ring stopped being able to spin separately from the cap itself, leaving me unable to close the pack. I took that ring off and it functions, though it won't be long before my cap is lost.

Aside from that, I love this. The back of it is nice and rigid, so it feels okay to wear. It still gets rounded, naturally, but the rigidity helps.

Fit: Runs large

I bought these boots about a week ago for a trip to Utah. I bought them since I was supposed to be going backpacking (didn't happen). I broke them in for only two days before the trip, and the break in period wasn't so horrible. After that they became really comfortable. While I wasn't carrying much, I did a few long primitive trails in these boots and they served me well.

Its pretty bulky even when rolled up, and its not super comfortable. I once used this pad on top of acorns and it was pretty lumpy but I got to sleep. Ive also used it in the cold and its a hell of a lot warmer than the ground. If you're just looking for something cheap, I'd go for it.

I just bought this to replace my camelbak water bottle that sprung a leak. I'm loving it so far. I got the red color and its a nice looking water bottle. I'm a fan.

I did buy a little spill guard thing to fit in the mouth part because I suck and I can't drink out of a hole that big. Its working well!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought one of these water bottles about a year ago. At first I loved it. I didn't even complain about the mold that grew in the bite valve because I loved that it wouldn't spill even if I was drinking from it in the car on a bumpy road. Unfortunately, it started leaking. It still works, but I recently put it in a backpack along with my computer and when I emptied the bag, my computer case was on the damp side. Its been leaking from the place where the straw connects to the bite valve. A new lid would do the trick, but I just bought a nalgene instead. This water bottle is too much work in my opinion. Between the mold and the leak, I wouldn't buy it again.

I bought these pants and they run very large. I am 5'3" and 110 lbs and I got a size zero short and I could stand for them to be even a little smaller.
If you can get the correct size, they are good pants. The legs roll up into capris which is nice. They are on the baggy side, but they are still a decent fit. Because they are a little big you could fit a base layer pant underneath if you wanted which is nice.

Fit: True to size

I bought these last season and I'm happy with them. They have held together great. I use them for just day to day walking/riding my bike in the winter and they work great. They aren't the warmest in the world, but thats to be expected.

I got the black ones as a gift and overall I'm very happy with them.

I wear these about 4 times a week. They are super comfortable and have held up pretty well. I love them a ton, but one thing that is really irritating is if you ever run in the rain, or wear these in the rain at all for that matter, they start getting water into the toe box really quickly.

In regular sneakers with more support I am a size 9, but for these I got an 8.5 and they fit perfectly.
