5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
Height: 6' 5"
Weight: 230 lbs
Size Purchased: 48.5/14

These boots can take you to the mountain, and then drive on for the summit bid. Backcountry never had my size in these, 48.5/14. I had to actually go to Germany to buy these. Ok, maybe I was in Germany already, and bought them, but anyway it's good to see Backcountry have the a full range of sizes in these, though maybe not mine. I wear 13s in normal shoes, but I had these fitted at an outfitter in Germany, and add in a good hiking sock and I need that extra room. . So far I haven't put these through the wringer or anything, but the few hikes I've been on they inspire confidence in tackling terrain, while being a comfortable boot.

I caught this bag on a sale at Backcountry, and I have used this product more than several times, but I wouldn't say I've put it through the wringer. This bag definitely keeps you toasty and warm. Put on a light baselayer, knit cap, and some wool socks, and this bag I believe would definitely keeps you warm at the rated temperature. I've used down into the 30s, and it kept me warm. I am very happy with my buy, and I think anyone that got this bag would be too.

Better 3 season then the new Hubba Hubba

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this over the new Hubba Hubba for a few reasons, one because I am 6'5" and it has a overall larger footprint and is longer than the Hubba Hubba. I have used this on overnight backpacking trips and general camping when I go climbing or kayaking. This thing works great, stayed warm at 30*, easy to set up light, and I liked it because it had more nylon, than mesh like the MSR's newer Hubba Hubba, I thought it kept it warmer and less drafty in colder temps. I suppose this could be a drawback in hotter temperatures, but it seemed just fine in 80*+ weather out in Tennessee on Memorial Day. Overall I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of this MSR tent.
