Great pack for backpacking
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Freja loves her new pack! We had hoped that it would slow her down just a little, which is did not. I guess that's telling of how little she is bothered by it. We pack the backpack with her food and her bowl when we go on packpacking trips. She also carries some of our trash on the way out.

They only times she seems slightly annoyed with the pack is when we manage to pack it unevenly, which is quite easy to do. Aside from that, and the very tiny buckle that straps one of the bags to the girth (which is a bit hard to get to when you have a dog who wants to run off and chase critters) this would easily have been a five star review.

We got a size small for Freja who is a 50 lbs German Shorthair Pointer mix. It fits her perfectly!

Great pack
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used to run with my mountain bike camelback pack (basically a small daypack), which works great except for two things. 1) it moves around a lot and 2) my daypack have no easy accessible pockets for snacks. As I was looking around for a smaller pack I stumbled across this one and catiecoo's review. I decided to give it a try. It turned out to be a great decision. When it comes to the pack itself I love it! It's light weight, it's comfy (the shoulder straps feels more like a sweater than backpack), it's easy to adjust, it DOESN'T bounce, and it's very roomy for being such small pack.

The only reason I don't give it five stars is for the hydration bladder. The mouth piece feels cheap and the plastic you turn to go from on and off got white stress marks the first time I used it. I don't think it will fall apart or crack, but it did catch me by surprise since this is a fairly expensive pack. The water bladder also make the water taste plasticy and bitter. I have spent a fair amount of time rinsing and gently cleaning the bladder and the bitter taste has been reduced. However, what water I have left after hours on the trail still have that plastic taste. I'm hoping that this will go away eventually. Since this is my first Nathan bag, I have no way of knowing if this is what to expect from their bladders in general, or if mine happens to be the one off.

I have a couple different wool undies in different brands, but these are my go-to ones. I have two pair and in the winter I basically live in them. These are perfect for a day skinning up the mountain or to keep you warm when you ride the ski lift. In the shoulder seasons I use these when hiking or backpacking. They are a little too warm for long summer hikes. I have had my first pair for about two years and they still look the same as when I bought them!

This shirt have become my go-to shirt. It doesn't mater if it's a lazy Sunday morning, a road trip, a hike, a camping trip, XC skiing, etc. This is the shirt I will wear. When I first got my shirt I was a bit disappointed that the sleeves were too short for me to comfortable use the thumb holes (I have long arms). Regardless, the shirt is so soft and comfy so I find myself wearing it quite often anyway and I rarely miss the option of using the thumb holes.

I bought these based on all the positive reviews, and yes I do really like them. However, the colored stripes on the sides started to peel the second time I wore them. It doesn't effect the fit at all, but they look kinda scrappy already. I will keep my pair because they are just that comfy, but I don't think I will buy another pair in the future.

I got this shirt in Torch. The color is great and the fabric is super soft. It's a bit transparent, but that is easily fixed by wearing it with a nude colored bra. I got a large and compared to other Icebreaker shirts of the same size I think that this model is running slightly larger. I actually like the fact that this shirt is not as snug as my other icebreaker shirts that I wear during the colder months. I love this shirt and I plan to get more in other colors.

Former sceptic

I have to admit that I thought these sandals were severely over-hyped. However, I let my boyfriend talk me into getting a pair of these when I needed to replace my old ECCO sandals. I don't say this very often, but he was absolutely right. These sandals are great. I have hiked, jogged, and I have even worn them to work where I stand up most of the day. The photo is taken at City of Rocks where I wore them basically constantly (except when sleeping) for three days. We hiked in rocky and sandy conditions and they were awesome.

I was looking for a sport bra that I could use while jumping my horse, jogging on a trail, and anything else in between. In other words, I needed a bra that keeps everything in place and minimize bounciness. This bra does a great job! I wish the elastic band was a bit more stretchy. I feel like Houdini every time I'm trying to get in or out of the bra. It's frankly a pain to get it over my shoulders. However, when in place it is a great bra.
