Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought these for our annual elk hunt. we were going to be packing in and camping in the high country. My hunting partner is my cousin's boy so he is 32 to my 59. These trekking poles helped equalize the age difference. Come the last day with our heaviest packs of 80-90 pounds and 5 miles out to vehicle, could really tell the difference. Nice being able to adjust poles. going uphill shorten them up down hill lengthen them. they were light, strong, really love them. Camera acted up so don't have any pictures to share, That was a real downer.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought this tent for two on our wilderness pack in elk hunt. It weighed same as my one person tent. Hunted three areas so packed it in, set it up, and took it down three times. What a breeze. easy to set up. plenty of room for the two of us we actually set our backpacks inside tent end of our pads to use as pillows. Not a lot of room in vestibules, but enough with packs in tent. great having two exits and entrances. we didn't have to bother the other to get in and out. Rained two nights we kept dry and warm. No condensation. really happy with this tent. I would recommend it strongly. As a three person it might be a little tight. But I think most are. The extra room over the two person really made it nice. For the little bit of weight it was worth it. Seems we are always tracking dirt and debris in, when we took fly off, pulled stakes, just lifted it up shook debris out open doors. then zipped them shut, took out poles and rolled it up, easy.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

Bought these socks on sale. they were warm and comfortable on trip into Colorado mountains. Only thing was with my taller hunting boots the did seem to chaf a little near top of boot. But with lower hiking boots they were great loved them. My buddy has had blisters on this trip every year till this year. But he finally broke down and bought a pair of merino wool socks.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Just got back from an elk hunt in Colorado. We spiked camp back in a few miles. The bag was lighter than my buddies and I was toasty warm all night in just my skivvies. He on the other hand had his insulated under clothes, regular clothes, and coat on and was still cold. I even zipped my bag down a little as it was only in lower 20's. Best sleeping bag I've ever owned.

Bought these to use for everyday at work and for hunting out west early season and Kansas deer November. Haven't had a chance out west with them yet. But so far around home working and everyday they're great. Light, supportive, comfortable. Have used them on the ski slopes making snow didn't get wet or cold. Definately would buy them again.
