Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This bag definitely on the big side. I am 6 foot 1 and it almost looks big on me! Aside from its sizing, this thing rules the day. Talk about all kinds of weather proofage to keep your stuff dry. It's already chalked up a few years worth of walking in the rain (hello PDX) and it's still going strong to this day.

Side note: I gotta say, it was hard to drop the coin on it in the beginning, but dang, it was totally worth it and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

I had an older model that finally gave out on me, I'd say it was somewhere in the 20+ year old range, bought from a garage sale quite a few years back. It needed replacing, and I was quite happy with it, so it made perfect sense to stick with Coleman.

I almost pulled the trigger on the InstaStart version, but shoot, those ignition things always like to go haywire. Out of 5 of my camping buddies, all 5 of theirs are bad. (All different brands I might add, no knock to Coleman by any means) I just always happen to have plenty of lighters around when camping, so not having the push button ignite was no biggie to me. The last version I had didn't have one, so I ain't missing much I suppose- plus, it was easier on the wallet to get one without!

Fit: True to size

The Light II's are excellent boots, especially throughout the autumn months. I've noticed that if it's anything above 65'ish degrees fahrenheit outside, be prepared for a full on sweat fest. I've done quite a few hikes with temps down in the low 30's, but they lack an insulation layer, hence the reason they are the Lights, so your feet will get cold; rather quickly I might add. For anything wintery/snow related, I'd opt for a pair with at least 400g Thinsulate or more. They've got quite a few options to explore, so you'll be in good hands.

Oh yeah, the cushy Vibr's defintely do a great job at keeping your feet ache free.

Fill your tires with a couple ounces of this stuff, and you'll be running tubeless in no time at all- just make sure you've got your rims taped!

Less weight, less flats, why would you not want to convert?!

The first couple times of using Stan's, be prepared to get a bit nasty; after that, it's all smooth sailing. Word of advice, spring for the syringe & core remover, as it makes filling/refilling waaaaaaaay easier and cleaner than the pour cup method.

Fit: Runs large

I've been rockin' the slip-on's since I was a wee little lad. Their classic design never lets them go out of style. Just slip'em on, and go! I must say, I do enjoy Era's too, but sometimes I get lazy and don't always feel like messing with laces.

If you've never owned a pair of Vans slip-on's before, they tend to run about a half to full size bigger than other brands, so keep that in mind.

The Flow's have a vent on the top of lenses (see that little slit), the Lo's don't. The Flow's also have anti-fog and Ripel treatments to help keep fog, dirt and grime off the lenses.

When it comes to road tripping, we've got this buddy ridding shotgun with us at all times. Hot or cold, it keeps things a constant temperature (5'ish hours for the longest haul thus far) and it was still steamin' hot when it poured out. Need something to stay cold, it'll do that too, just add ice!
