Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size

Was looking towards these for a camp/water crossing shoe for backpacking. Liked the construction of the shoe but there's a seam on the front inside that kept catching on my toenails, even when I trimmed them way down. The rest of the shoe was comfortable around the house but just can't risk losing a toenail when my foot slips off a rock in a creek.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Purchased on Steep and Cheap and was impressed by the innovation. Durability is good. Light output and adjustment is fantastic. Headband is as comfortable as any others I've tried.
I agree with earlier reviews in that its difficult to snap the battery pack securely into the lantern base. It takes a lot of practice and you really need some light to see what you're doing. I've only had it out a couple nights so I can't vouch for battery life yet.

Bought this pack on Steep and Cheap and it truly was a steal. The build quality is amazing. Unfortunately the ergonomics just didn't fit my body. The gaps in the waist belt's vertically-oriented padding allowed the hard plastic inner support to rest directly on the points of my hip bones. Furthermore, no matter how I adjusted the shoulder straps and load lifters I always felt like my chest was a little too deep for the bag. I'm a usual pack size of men's medium with a 41-42" chest, and I had bought a M/L size pack. Again, this is just my body fit. Perhaps if the torso size was adjustable I could have made it work. Other than that the suspension was fantastic, ventilation was better than the Osprey Atmos, and the low weight for a 65L bag is impressive. Organization is top notch as well; I've never had a bag fit my stuff so well. Truly disappointed that it just wouldn't fit me. Two improvement suggestions: lose the bottle opener and add removable sleeping pad straps to the bottom.
