Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I an Ultralamina a few years ago for my boyfriend (http://www.backcountry.com/mountain-hardwear-ultralamina-32-sleeping-bag-32-degree-synthetic-mhw1505) for a gift. I've been jealous of his lightweight, small-packed bag since day one. I finally saw this one on Steep and Cheap and grabbed it; however, this one is MUCH thicker, heavier, and does not pack down as tiny. It also seems less "soft." It seems like it would probably keep you warm, but unfortunately I'm not keeping it to find out.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

Against the other negative reviewer's advice, I purchased these anyway. They are very comfortable, the color IS great, and they seem just fine for all the adventures I've taken them on. The sole has this flexy rubber that sticks to rocks/etc which is nice. Minimalist, but provides plenty of support, I think.

This knife is great! It was my first knife investment (cheap) and it works wonders on easy camping trips. You never realize how much it will come in handy until you bring it with you! It is, however, very small, so keep that in mind. So small that the first time I took it somewhere, I ended up losing it and had to buy a second one.

Love this little guy!

I am not a boy, but I would imagine if I was, I would not want to share this tent with another boy. Once I had it to myself and it was awesome. Another time I shared it with a boy and it was a little close.

However, super easy setup, super easy take down, very light and packs tiny! Vestibule is nice for some random stuff. I did not use this in the rain, unfortunately, but I assume it would hold up nicely.

tl;dr This tent makes me want to sleep outside every night.

These pants are the perfect fit. They have just the right amount of tight, and they move very easily. I usually am around a M, but these fit way better in S (but I like them tight). When I wear them, I feel kind of like I'm not wearing pants. Got the teal and they are pretty true to color. 4 stars because I am stoked to see how they actually hold up this season.

After wearing them out, they are fantastic. Allow for such movement. Unlike some other tight pants that you can't really bend in, these are tight-fitting but can definitely allow all sorts of movement. Love it

THis is my first, so I have nothing to compare it to, but it is awesome! I was debating between the 50 and the 60 L, went with this because if I had the extra space, I would bring extra stuff I probably didn't need. Took it out on a 2 night trip in the desert of central Utah and it was awesome. Felt so light on my back, and there was plenty of room for everything! (If not, you can always just strap it to the outside). Ventilation is incredible! My back was completely dry the entire time except for the small spot by my hips. No bruising on either my hips of shoulders. Love all the pockets! The straps are many, but once you get a hold of it, they're awesome. Can't wait to take this out again!
The only thing I would change is at the bottom, there are straps for a sleeping pad. They don't buckle, which would be great for easy attaching. Instead you have to take them all the way out if your pad is bulky and retighten. Not terrible for the only negative!

I had a hard time buying bindings because I think they are at the bottom of the set-up importance... But these are super light, super responsive, and well-made. They have a technology where they are much more flexible on the board rather than just being a metal plate glued onto the board, and I can pretty well tell the difference between them and my old ones. I've heard bindings are good when you don't actually notice them, and this is definitely true for these. Screws come loose kind of frequently, but a quick tighten and they're fine. Overall good bindings!

I would avoid wearing these on a super snow day, as they are not as heavy as my Underamour pants, but the length on them is great!
Yeah, really bunchy in the crotch, I am usually a medium, so I bought those, I wish I would have gotten the small but am too lazy to return them. I haven't had any problems with them, the elastic top is nice and fits well!

First pair of bindings, so I can't compare too much to others, I have the 07s, and still riding them.
From day one, though, they have always been a little sticky to unstrap from, it gets kind of annoying. They haven't broken, but I always put the back down while riding the lifts.. Adequate binding, I hear Rides are (in general) very heavy because they are metal, so I probably wouldn't go with a Ride binding again. But they're not bad.
