Bomber tent. It took rain and hail in the rockies no problem. I am six feet tall and while I had room to sleep without my head or feet touching tent walls, sitting up is a bit tricky. My GF and I were able to sit using thermarest chair kits, but we had to sit facing eachother and in the center of the tent to keep our heads off the ceiling. The only other minor thing to note is that you pretty much have to crawl out because of how far the fly comes down above the door. The cons are nitpicky and few. The pros are huge. Cozy and awesome tent.

Got'em on SAC for half price. They appear to be well made. I needed a cheap pair and quick. These will do the trick, especially for $30. Seem a bit on the small side though. I sized up to an XL so I could layer gloves under the shell if i wanted to. I'm glad i did. they are tighter than i would have expected. also, the shells seem to have a bit of insulation in them which would be good for not so cold temps.

So far great! I havent punished it yet, but out of the box, the fit is good. I am 6' and 175 lbs. I got the medium and really like it. The medium fits snug (which i like) but is still loose enough to layer a patagonia down sweater. The length is perfect. I guess i'd say it was a little loose in the mid-section; I almost shouldn't even mention it as it is not really an issue. It looks and feels bomber. All the features are here. I cant wait to ride in it.

The jacket seems awesome. bomber, sweet pockets, and the necessary bells and whistles. I returned it because the jacket was too big. I'm 6' 170lbs and the large was too big everywhere but the sleeves. bummer. cool jacket though. Also, it seems layers were taken into condiseration when sizing this piece. i mean, probably no need to size up to accomodate insulation layers.

My very first experience with these mitts resulted in the shock cord snapping out from the leather pull tab on the first glove i pulled out of the shipping bag. Really Stoic? Secondly, i sized up like all the reviews below have suggested but the mitts were still way too small. I ordered XL. One of the mitts I recieved had a size L liner in it while the other had a XL liner!?? Even with the correct liner and mitt combo the mitt was so small it restricted blood flow a bit. Thirdly, they dont seem warm at all (I know, i read the reviews). Definately not what I'd called bomber. I have been snowboarding in a pair of older patagonia expedition gloves for years. They make these Stoic mitts seem like a joke. I got them on SAC for $43, and because of the deal, i would have kept them had the not been defective, screwed up, and sized terribly. they are going back. I absolutely love all my other stoic gear. I am very disappointed with these mitts. oh and I almost forgot... The way the seams are sewn on the tip of the thumb and finger leave a wad of unused and unneeded material that messes with dexterity. More time should have been spent on R&D.

i bought these for my lady as a base layer glove. she wore them out in the deep and blizzard-like snows of Memphis (that was a joke), and they got wet and stayed wet. she tried letting them air dry inside the house. after hours and hours they were just as soaked as when they were first hung up to dry. if we had taken these out into the backcountry, they would be utterly useless. plus, after only three wears, they are unravelling at the finger tips. the cotton glove liners i bought at targert for $ 0.75 have held up better than these TNF bamboo liners. i will be sending these back.

very light weight shirt, dries super fast, and fits similar to most performace t-shirts. wore it for four days backpacking recently. it kept me cool and didnt hold odor to badly. however, the material did beging to pill in high abrasion areas (under pack straps). dont be to rough on this shirt. it gets banged up pretty easily.

i love these shorts. i pretty much quit wearing my other shorts entirely! the pockets are awesome, as is the stretch material. they are quick dry, but not bathing suit quick dry. still, you could swim or surf in them if you wanted. i wish there were more colors availible. i bought the long pants version too!

these fit me great! they are a little on the snug side, but i like that about them. the pocket placement is very cool. i wish they had cinches in the ankle area so you could keep them above your knee (for river crossing, etc.), but all in all, they rule! maybe a bit thick for summer use though. Update: these pants hold a cuff very well. no need for cinches at all!!
