Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my second merino shirt, I opted for the 200 because I wanted it a little bit thicker so I could wear it without a vest over it. I also have an icebreaker merino shirt, I find the stoic one a pinch itchier, though not annoyingly so, than the icebreaker one when I first put it on, but once I'm out and about I don't notice the difference any longer. I also went with the 200 because I have to wear a vest over or a cami under the icebreaker one so you can't see through it and I wanted a shirt I could just wear as is and this one fit's the bill. Because of that, I tend to reach for my stoic one more often than the icebreaker one. The fit is flattering and I believe true to size. I love the dark forest color too, its so pretty with the boysenberry accented stitching. Get it, you won't regret it!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love love love this pack. I bought it back in September and since its not snowing here yet I've been using it as an every day bag for work and my EMT class. It fits my 15" computer, a folder, the text book AND the work book in the big pocket with some room on the top for a snack, my stethoscope and some other smaller stuff. Then my BP cuff, inflatable mannequin for CPR and smaller odds and ends in the avalanche gear pocket. Plus a pen, knife, pen light, flash light and a little bottle of hand sanitizer in the mini pocket on the front. I was a little worried the first couple times I wore it because the valve box on the left shoulder seemed to dig in, but after the first week and tweaking the straps so it fit better, I don't even notice it anymore. I'm 5'4 and the 18L fits well length wise, my bf has the outlaw L and that was like 3" too long for my back to be comfortable. I tried it last week on the groomers and it was comfortable and having water right there is excellent. I'm stoked to take it in the back country this winter once we get some real snow, I'm confident it will live up to the hype.
