Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Once tried, always used. Lightweight, durable, plenty of capacity. At 37g (1.3oz) and a volume capacity of 2.3L (78 fl oz) if filled to the brim, it's unmatched. I own two of these, and you'll never catch me on an overnight trip without one.

They're perfect for storing filtered water at basecamp or for some extra capacity between stops without water.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I really wanted to like these mitts. The build quality is excellent. They are great in terms of functionality. I just couldn't get them to fit me well, and they left me a little disappointed in terms of warmth.

Fit: Ordered both the Medium and Large sizes of the mitts. Spent a long weekend with the Large, decided the 1-3" of extra space at the ends of the fingers made it impossible to do anything with my hands. The next weekend, I took the Medium pair. The excess length at the end of my fingers was reduced. But in the medium, I found the cut of the fabric at the joint between my thumb and pointer finger was too short. My thumb couldn't all the way into the glove (tried both the inner and outer glove separately...same story).

Warmth: On both weekends the temps went down to 25F/-4C. On both weekends, my hands were a little chilly around camp.

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

I'm 6'1" (184cm) tall and weigh 178lb (81kg). Athletic, lean build. Ordered both the medium and large of this jacket. Returned the medium and kept the large. The medium felt a tiny bit constricted around my chest; additionally, the medium jacket length was a little too short for my torso because it barely reached my waistline and wrists. On the other hand, the large fit perfectly, both in length and girth. It also leaves just enough room to layer a down sweater beneath the jacket.

Weighed them both at home:
Medium jacket - 480g (17oz)
Large jacket - 504g (17.8oz)
