Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I have worn these boots for over a year. Straight out of the box they are extremely comfortable and fit well. They break-in quickly and I did not have any blisters or hotspots.

They took me on over 50 backcountry miles hunting deer and elk in Colorado this past year. I am not talking about groomed trails; I am talking about off trail hiking while climbing over deadfall and going up and down mountains. They kept my feet warm, dry and comfortable. Temperatures ranged from -10 before dawn to 50's in the afternoon.

I would not recommend these boots for sustained cold or non-aerobic winter activities. These will work in the winter if you are on the move but there are betters boots out there for extreme cold.

These are a great 3 season boot that can take you into the winter if you are on the go. On trail or off, these rock!

I love wearing these when the hike is short and the trail is easy. If I am traveling off the trail or if the trail is rocky then hiking boots would get the nod.

The lacing system if very comfortable and easy to use. I have a GTX pair and the non-GTX pair. I love both but the GTX pair makes my feet really sweaty when it is warm out

I wear these almost daily at my teaching job. They look good and feel good.

I have worn them a couple times upland hunting and cold weather fishing when the walks aren't too long. I wouldn't wear them on a long hike but for less strenuous activities they work well.

Throw a flannel on top and you are ready to hit the brewery

Nothing special, just a meat and potatoes day pack.

Enough room for a quick day hike or slingin' a fly on the river. I use mine anytime I am out for more than a couple hours or if weather is a big concern.

I think this pack is a better choice than a 25-30 liter pack. You can easily fit the bulky winter layers that can be a pain in a 25 liter daypack

If I lived in the wet NW or hunted in Alaska, I might see the need for a $400 shell but in dry Colorado a PreCip is all you need for the occasional downpour.

It fits great and you can easily layer a fleece pullover and puffy underneath with no problems or wear it on its own.

These pants rock! I was worried at first about sizing because of some of the negative reviews but then I noticed if you looked the reviews chronologically you could see them getting more positive as time moved on.

I ordered my regular size, 32x32, and the fit perfectly. The material is heavy duty and could stand up to a lot of abuse. These are perfect fall and winter pants. I could see wearing them in the high country in the summer but they maybe a little warm around town.
