Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love the way this jacket feels, looks, fits, and keep me warm. However, it started to show pilling within the first 3 days I wore it. 3 days!!! I've never seen it happen that quick. The stretch of the fabric is great, however since it is so smooth and stretchy, it has gotten caught on sharp things twice and now I have holes in my jacket. Bottom line is this is a great jacket for wearing around town, but if you're out camping or backpacking, this thing is gonna wear quick. Bonus tip: to remove pilling, use a sharp razor and run it along the fabric, going with the grain.

Just pulled the bag out of the box, so this is strictly a prelim review. From what I can tell so far, this is a nice bag and I think I'll be happy with it for years to come. I was a little hesitant about the stretch aspect of it, but once I got inside, I decided I really liked it. Coming from a bag that was too long for me, it's nice to have a bag hug me. I can feel the stretchy cords in the baffles right away, but it's also 102 degrees here right now, so I'm in shorts, pretty sure that won't bug me when I'm sleeping. I'm a side sleeper and tend to move around a bit in my sleep so I think this feature is going to be a home run. The down is distributed so that the upper part of the bag has maybe twice as much loft as the bottom part of the bag, which is great for keeping weight down. The color is not my first choice, probably my last, actually. I want to blend in with the environment, not stick out, but whatever, I got this bag half off on SAC, so I can sacrifice the color.
Details you can't see in the ONE photo of this bag: there are two removable pad locks underneath the bag, there are multiple loops attached to the bottom and side of the bag for drying it out, etc, the zipper goes both ways, so if you're warm or wanna stick a leg out, you can unzip from the bottom, there is a small pocket on the outside near your head (probably big enough for chapstick and a pair of glasses), and the bag comes with a cotton sack for long term storage and a small sack for stuffing (not a compression bag, i.e., there's no compression straps).
The zippers and draw cords leave something to be desired, though. The zippers snagged on the outside of the bag a few times. The 'snag-free zipper tracks' are on the inside of the bag, so, sure, it doesn't snag on the inside, but they also make it a pain to unzip from the inside of the bag. The drawcords are just paracord (?) so there is no elasticity to them, but in a bind, it's nice to know there is some extra cord to use for other purposes.
Last thing, the description says there is a slip for a pillow, no, there is not in my bag!!! I'm thinking the bag I got was an older model or something.
Overall I think this is a great bag!

I love the yellow color on my screen, too bad the dress that came is brown! And not a nice natural brown, it looks like sh*t. The description the website offers is weak, so here's some more info: dress is cotton, straps are adjustable, both in length and position (there is a clasp like on a bra strap that you can move to have either crossed straps in the back or straight straps), the cut on the top of the dress was actually really cute, but the cut below that was not forgiving. I'm pretty hippy and it just looked bad on me, might look really cute on someone less curvy though. Its also pretty short and the bottom hem is longer on the sides than in the front/back. If I was shaped different or if I ordered black I wouldn't have returned it.

Really cute dress but the top was very tight fitting on me- and I'm not exactly top heavy. Although it looked great, it was really uncomfortable. I'm 5'7" 140 lb ordered a medium and am returning for a large, hoping its a better fit. The pockets in the front and tie detail in the back is very nice. It also has a side zipper with an eye and hook on top, but the zipper has trouble moving past the middle seam. Overall its a nice dress but I wouldn't pay full price for it.
