Whether I'm backpacking or car camping, I use this stove all the time and love it. It's boils water really fast, and is easy to pack with a canister in the provided bag. Unfortunately I have an older version but I see that now the lid design is even better.
Last thing: the piezo ignitor broke on mine after maybe 3 years, I emailed Primus and got a new one in the mail a few days later, for free... It's the best stove for 2-4 people.

I bought two 6-liter tanks for a backpacking trip on the Channel Islands three years ago now. A hell to carry but really worth it, not much water there.
Anyway, I've used them a lot since then just for car camping mostly, and have never had an issue. The zip-lock style top closes easily for me, and as the recommend I flip it upside down to make sure it's properly closed, and I usually don't see a drop.
Finally, as some users have mentioned, it is compatible with the rest of the platypus line which means you can screw a platypus hose on it, or probably their filter although I haven't tried.

I take it everyday riding my bike to work (~ 15 min each way), and even though it is not truly waterproof I have never seen the inside damp even when it is pouring outside, and I feel like it could handle the rain longer. On the other side I wouldn't trust the front pocket, but again, I haven't seen it wet so far.

This lamp is just great. The red beam is perfect in the tent, and the white one is plenty bright (at least compared to my old BD one). I haven't tested it's waterproofness but otherwise it's pretty light and feels solid. Maybe a bit expensive but you definitely get what you pay for.

This bag is pretty nice, it easily hold a 70 m rope, has a huge tarp you can use to keep your climbing shoes clean too. The only gripe I have is that it doesn't have any pockets on the side to slide a book for instance (true to description though, I was warned!).

It's cool bag that does the job for a decent price.

Just as the other reviewers said, they are very stiff, pretty easy to tighten (putting them on is another story though, almost harder to do than for alpine skiing boots). They fit true to size in my opinion, at least compared to other burtons, and are nicely shaped so that my toes don't stick out to much even for my big feet. The Vibram sole is definitely a plus when you need to hike to the summit. Haven't been wearing them that much yet but they seem durable.
