Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I've owned several pairs of these socks and they fit nicely and keep my feed dry and warm, but they always wear out under the balls of my feet. I guess its saying something good that they dont fall apart and the stitching keeps together, but it seems like they should last longer then they do.

This is a great stove for heating water. It boils quickly, and uses fuel very efficiently. I have cooked ramen in it once and it was a bit of a disaster, its really best for heating water and dumping into your freezer-bag or dehydrated meal etc. On Colorado trail last year (so decent elevations) I was using one of the normal size gas cans every 10 days or so, with ~3x big mugs of hot beverage, and ~4 cups of hot water daily for rehydrating meals. Also the normal size cans fit nicely into the canister, add a small dishrag to the top so things dont shift and its a great little setup.

This is my goto top layer, its amazing. Did the colorado trail this summer with light-poly + this + rainshell. Use it almost every day this fall on top of bike shirt for warmth. Im quite sure this winter it will replace my older expedition-weight capilene as a mid layer. Breathes great, nice fit, I'm buying a 2nd one. The tail is a little long, so it works nice for riding. (I'm 5-10 190 in a large). The little pocket on the arm is kindof weird, its really just for a key or something, but I can pack in a 1/2 bar for a snack.

Really a great layer.
