Fit: True to size

Not going to write a sonnet on this for obvious reasons, but it's a pretty good belt. Works just fine. Only complaint is that the belt has begun to wear out in the places I usually close the buckle (fraying, etc). Otherwise, it's a great belt.

Awesome little bottle! The insulation is amazing. I filled it up using the water fountain at school and then let it sit on the passenger's seat in the sun all day. Came back several hours later to find the outside was burning hot, but the water was still good and cold. Not for hiking trips or situations in which you don't have access to water, but perfect for normal, everyday use.

--EDIT

After a few months of use, I've found that the top leaks a little. Not a terrible issue, but still a tad annoying.

Love this stove!

This is a great little stove! I haven't used it much, but it's small, easy to light, and the cookset that goes with it is really cool. I store a four ounce canister of gas, the stove, a small fork, and a P-38 military can opener in the clamshell/cookset with plenty of room left. Used it today to cook some beans while I was out messing around in the mountains with my bros.

I bought this jacket so I could zip in a TNF Nuptse 2 jacket. I zipped the two together, and it's a really warm setup. The Varius guide jacket stops wind amazingly, and the Nuptse2 keeps me really warm. The only problem I've had with the jacket-- a couple of the threads have come loose. Sending it to TNF to get it repaired after the cold season's over! Definitely a good jacket to keep the wind off of you, but if you're looking to get warm, definitely zip in a Nuptse 2 or another zip-in compatible jacket .

I had this jacket for a week, and was unimpressed with it. The outer shell is awesome and keeps all wind and moisture out, but the liner absolutely sucks for colder weather. I assumed that the liner would be filled with down, but they put almost no down on the sleeves. If you're going to use it for temperatures over thirty, it will be adequate -- but for anything below freezing, this jacket will not keep you warm. I ended up returning it and buying a TNF men's Nuptse 2 Jacket, and a Men's Varius Guide Jacket (I zipped the two together). My setup was only a couple bucks more than this jacket, and it is a ton warmer and more comfortable.
