Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my new favorite mug, used every day, and an equal if not superior to Snowpeak when price is considered. I love the 600ml/20 oz. size, which makes servings of liquids and foods decent instead of snack-like. Very light and comfortable to use. The only complaint is that the otherwise handy included closeable top broke at the pivot-clasp after a few cleanings, so now I just use the lower part with the silicon seal until I figure out a repair. If you want to avoid this potential problem, don't think about all the crud that builds-up between thr two parts of the lid...

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

This is a perfectly adequate compass for backup or "just in case" situations. Two degree divisions, and a non-adjustable declination setting, mean you wouldn't use it for orieteering or surveying, but it's fine for rough wayfinding, which is enough in most areas if done right. Light, small, and highly visible in the orange color. Just what I had been looking for at a good price.

Haven't used it in the field yet, but it's sturdy and light and long enough to dig down to the bottom of freeze-dried pouches. Not for those who still imagine they see value in trimming the handles of utensils or tags, but there's room in the handle to drill a slew of holes, if you're so inclined. I wish the spoon bowl was a little bigger, and the shape seemed odd at first, but it's nicely polished and looks like it'll do great scraping food out of the corners of bags. And the Backcountry.com price is fantastic!
