Great pack with so much potential
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I live in Australia which is a harsh country, and just about everything in the bush and the weather wants to kill you so good gear is a must because your life depends on it. I researched this pack in detail in that I do a lot of hiking and hunting, and like a lot of hunters are moving away from military packs to ultralight. This pack is great and a 2-3 day bag, I have to admit this pack is usually filled to max but it seems to carry everything well. I am 6 foot and athletic and a medium just fits me. I found that every filled to the max the pack was still comfortable and I often forgot I was wearing it. I really love the external pockets and lashing straps for tent and sleeping mat. In summary this is a great bag, I took a risk in buying from the US because there are returns from Australia and am very happy with it. I don't think there is any other bags out there that competes with this except some Gossamer Gear products.

I have several pairs of these pants and love them. However, I notice that when I want to buy more my size is never available, in the colours I like. Being in Australia I can't try on clothes so I take a risk buying online. What are some brands that offer fitted or slim fit hiking/climbing pants, I hate baggy pants and like the feel of fitted pants with stretch like the brions. Your help is greatly appreciated.

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

After all the reviews about these pants I was excited to get them. I am a 32 waist and athletic which means I am not fat and have muscular legs. All other 32 inch waist pants fit great including the Brion pants from Prana which are slim fit and look great. These pants are baggy which is a shame and after putting them on once will now stay in my cupboard till I donate them to a fat homeless person.
