5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

Very warm, looks great. The omni-heat reflective material is very effective. I'm 6'2'', 170lbs, and the Large fits me perfectly without looking like I'm drowning in it.

FYI, this is 800 fill down + 60 g Omni-Heat® synthetic insulation = 860 TD (turbo-down). The specs and description should be updated.

Love it (of course!)

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Haven't taken it on a trip yet, but it seems great so far! Super light, strong, and completely waterproof. I tested it with toilet paper in the sink and it kept it bone dry. Basically, it seems like a lighter-weight version of the 'old' e-vent sack.

Here's a more thorough review that I posted on Imgur:

Great bowl - not bombproof
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this bowl, but I put it through too too much. I kept it on the outer pocket of my backpack covered only by mesh, and it unfortunately got a few small holes. This was mostly my own fault - every time I put my backpack face-down it would be resting on the bowl. I still give it 5 stars because it held up to normal wear and worked great as a cutting board too. Note: this is actually the XL-Bowl.

These are my favourite pants for backpacking and hiking. I also worked a whole summer at a fishing lodge and these were the only pants I wore. Well ventilated and very sturdy.

I took them on a portage and some ash from the fire landed on them, which instantly melted a little hole in the leg. So I'd suggest changing pants before sitting around the fire, or use dry wood and a small fire.

As my first pair of tights, I have nothing with which to compare. They seem very good. I've been running in cold humid weather (around -5 Celsius) and I've never felt cold during my run. They're definitely not wind-proof (not that they claim to be), I can feel the breeze when I walk outside before my run. They support very well and I it's possible that I'm experiencing less knee pain during longer runs. They're very tight, but they don't show your junk, which is nice. And they look cool! Overall I'm very happy.
