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

I like the color (orange) and fit of this jacket a lot. I've used it mostly casually and a few times hiking/camping over two years, probably less than two dozen times all together, and the Dry.Q lining is deteriorating. It's flaking off around the neck/hood and shoulders. When I called Mountain Hardwear, they told me that when oils come into contact with the lining it can fall apart. Pretty unavoidable with a jacket for warm weather. Should be covered under warranty, but I'm not sure I want another one.

The breathability is okay though it gets a bit balmy inside after 15-20 minutes, and didn't stand up to medium-light rain for more than about 20-30 minutes for me.

It's a lower end jacket and I guess it's okay for the price (if you get it on sale) but it might not last or work in all conditions.

Great shirt. Super comfortable and cute, great fit (though I sized up to a medium because I was worried about shrinkage. I think a small would have been fine though. I'm 5'6" 120lbs). It's done great through the wash. I would definitely buy more from this company.

Fit: Runs large

These pants are really nice, nicest I've had, but the sizing is really weird. I first ordered a medium, which should have fit (I'm 5'6" about 120lbs) just a little loose, but they were literally falling off; I couldn't even tighten then with the velco adjusts enough. Then I switched for a small - still too big but only just. I actually had to get an XS, which is NOT my size, and those are just a bit tighter than I'd like, but fit the best of the three. What's up, North Face?

That said, Backcountry was AWESOME with the exchanges.

I haven't used these yet, but got them to replace my old Scott poles I've had since high school. They've got slalom guards on them, so rather than deal with taking them off, I just got some new poles to drop the bulk and weight. These are poles, great price, and they seem sturdy!

This review is more about Backcountry than Marmot.

This site (along with some others) seem to be confused about this tent. Backcountry listed 1 vestibule in the specs, but 2 in the description (when I purchased this on 11/23/12). A reviewer stated that a gear loft was included (there isn't; another site http://www.backwoods.com/marmot-traillight-2p-tent.html also said the gear loft was included). The Backcountry rep I chatted with said (more or less), 'too bad, you should contact Marmot, and we'll fix the info about the vestibule.'

This was my first purchase from Backcountry and this response was a bit disappointing, on top of not getting something I had expected. I can't afford a different tent, so exchange isn't really an option.

But the tent seems great, and it was very easy to set up even in my small kitchen. I just wish I had know about the single vestibule (definitively) and that it didn't come with the gear loft (and doesn't even seem to be compatible with one).
