Thanks for answering. I already ordered this and returned it (forgot to delete my question). It actually was pretty heavy compared to para cord 500.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

These pants are super awesome. They are comfortable, flexible, and they look great on. The only thing that is not perfect is the waistband which opens up/slides down in the back when I bend over, BUT take that with a grain of salt because [I have only ever found one brand in life that doesn't do that to me] I have an apparently strange/hard-to-make-pants-for shape. I got these because I know a bunch of guys with the male version and they all love them and praise them.

These gloves are not as nice as I thought they would be, maybe I will return them if I still can... They have a lot of extra fabric on the fingertips, so they decrease dexterity. I haven't tested out their water-proofness-- that was the main reason I got them (for backpacking in rain), but they also didn't keep my hands warm when I wore them one VERY cold day. They block wind though, and I'm sure they could really be useful to someone else... p.s. I got them on sale for $20. I wouldn't pay more than that for them...

Makes ma man look super fine.
Soft in color and in feel.
Seems durable, fits well.

The only drawback is the price, expected from prAna- exactly why this is my first purchase of anything theirs. Worth is circumstantial though, and I am glad I bought this shirt. :D

Light, small, good features. Everything about this is great exCEPT that it doesn't fully seal. It's got this nice lid which fits on well and tight, but it's got a little sippy hole! They could easily make a little flap or plug and it would improve functionality greatly. One could easily be made with 2part silicone, or something, like sugru. Don't leave it on the hood of your car-make a plug so you can still put it in your pack when it's full!!!

I will never get the full use out of this because I dropped it near/in the fire the first trip I took it on. It tumbled out of a case, and I regret not storing it somewhere more secure, but it was in the fire a couple seconds and the little string thing is gone now. Nice settings as far as the lights go (bright, low, blinking), and it's pretty bright for it's size and weight. Nice enough that I'm planning an (at home)repair. Seems durable enough, but don't bring it near the fire! ><

SUPER delicious. I am a HUGe fan of mashed potatoes and a potato connoiseur in general; these really held up to my standards. Don't forget your salt though because you need more while on the trail, and my partner wanted to salt these (he puts salt on a lot of things when I don't).
