Familiarity: I've used it several times

I just don't like women's pants, so I tried these. They rock! Nice stretch, which I have come to appreciate more and more on bouldery sections and steep trails. Material is holding up fine. I've used in 74-degree weather on day hikes down to 37-degrees in the snow and worked perfectly in all conditions. Sheds water pretty good, though not waterproof (and not advertised as such). I bought the darforest/agave--nice color. Makes me feel like a ranger :) Nice DEEP front pockets, so I don't have to worry about losing anything and my Buck Vantage folder clips in nicely. Leg length a tad long for my 5'6" frame, but with boots on who cares?

I used this over a Stoic 150 merino bliss shirt on a backpacking trip and only had to put my down jacket on once. It got down to the high 30s. This thing is WARM! Very lightweight, too. I think this particular model is being discontinued, so you better jump on it while they are still around.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have purchased two of these now--they are warm, wick, and very comfortable to wear. Be sure to follow the washing instructions on the tag inside the shirt and use Nikwax Wool Wash--you'll be glad you did. I've used it on backpacking trips and just walking the dog early in the morning under a down jacket. WARM!

I bought this for winter hiking and ended up using it when walking the dog early in the morning when I had a cold and didn't want to beathe the cold are. It's comfortable, fits well (I have a small head), and the part that covers the lower half of your face stays put. I think this might be a model that MH has discontinued, so if you like what you see, buy it. Well worth the money.

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

I bought this to use over my hammock and it worked great. Lightweight, strong. And Backcountry's price is great. If you've been considering a tarp, this would be a good one. The green color blends nicely with surroundings and doesn't yell "here I am!"
