I love my Marmot Arroyo sleeping bag. I am 5'-10" about 180 lbs. and the regular size bag is not too small nor too big for me. I tend to sleep warm, so this bag is great for me down to around 20 degrees. I have enough space in the bag to use a fleece liner that adds another 10 to 15 degrees to the temperature rating for colder outings. I love the Velcro-free face muff. This bag packs to the size of my regular-size Therma-Rest Prolite 3 pad in the supplied stuff sack, but I can get it down to the size of a medium-sized cantaloupe in a compression sack. I love this bag. It's light, has a water repellent (but not waterproof) shell, and fits me well. Good price, too.

I previously wrote a review when I first received these boots that was critical of the fit around the ankles. After some wearing around the house, I decided to take advantage of Backcountry's incredible return policy and get a half size smaller boot. What a difference a half size makes! These boots are great! Good on the feet, and no annoying rubbing on the ankles with the right size.

These boots are the first shoe purchase I made online thanks to backcountry.com's stellar return policy. I bought the boots a half size larger to accomodate thicker backpacking socks. The boots feel a little big in the toe, but my foot fits well, so this is not a problem--especially as my feet expand noticiable as they get warm. These are some of the most comfortable shoes I have ever purchased, as far as my feet are concerned. However, my ankles would put up a good argument that they might not be, as the ankle collar on the boot has a material that gips the sock and causes some uncomfortable (but not unbearable) rubbing after a few hours. I am hoping this goes away after some additional break-in time. Otherwise this is a great boot.
