Familiarity: I've used it several times

The harness fits well and secures the camera well. However, it doesn't have quite enough range of motion to keep the camera facing forward when seated on a bike. The result is you get great video of the ground, but not enough of the horizon. Need to add an extra link between the camera and mount to improve the range of motion.

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

Just got back from a week trip with the Overhead Rolling 2600. It met all expectations. Bigger than some "22" carry-ons and enough pockets to keep stuff organized without being cluttered. Wheels, handles, zippers, and materials all functioned well. Only checked it for half of the flights so it didn't see tons of abuse. Solid product.

I love this piece. It is exactly what I was looking for - something lightweight and packable for Spring and Fall trips where my winter puffy is overkill. Something that is small and light that mostly lives in the pack until you need it. I had on a recent White Rim mtn. bike trip where the weather deteriorated from the forecast and it totally saved my ass. I was warm, even though it was cold, windy and raining on and off. One thing that surprised me is that the hand warmer pockets don't have zippers. It hasn't been a problem, and in retrospect, it is designed as a layering piece, so no zippers makes sense. I just didn't expect it. All in all, this piece rocks - and in earthy tones too...

I converted the 3x9 drivetrain on my mountan bike to a 1x9. The FSA Pro was easy to install and has worked out as I expected it to. The only detail I wasn't super stoked on was the fact that it wasn't entirely flat. This makes adjusting my chain keeper more tedious than it should be because the chainring is wobbling back and forth slightly. Other than that, no complaints.

I've bought several prana pants and shorts over the years and I foolishly orderd some of these shorts without trying them on. I needed a new pair of climbing shorts and bought an XL based on the last pair of pants I had and Hey! they were WAY too large! Genius! With prana stuff, sometimes I'm a large, sometimes and extra large, depending on the year and style. Why prana doesn't go with actual waist measurements is beyond me.

These are pretty beefy, substantial approach shoes. These aren't soft, running shoe type rigs. These would be great for long days on ridges where you would want some more support and protection from talus. You can bust out some 5.8 moves if you have to, but they are a bit on the clunky side to inspire much confidence on technical rock. And they're a bit hot on the feet in the summer. All around a solid shoe that I'm sure will last longer than most approach type shoes.
