Familiarity: I've used it several times

We ordered 4 of these tents for packtrip outfitting this summer. They have been used for the last 4 trips.
The pros:
1. spacious
2. easy to assemble
3. nice layout
4. good weight

The Cons:
1. the poles bend and are not durable
2. the stuff sacks for all of them are ripping

It is a decent product but will not last you long. Disappointed in the quality of the craftsmanship. The overall basics are good but the usage potential and life span is short.

I have numerous AMK product but this newer Comprehensive series is my main large kit for backpacking, home, car etc. It includes everything you can think of to help you get by until you can get to hospital care. Comprehensive says it all. The packaging is excellent, the case is easy to manage and look through, and items remain protected from water.

Been using these poles on long days through the Tetons and always grateful to have them along on steep loose downhills for extra comfort and faster movement. These poles adjust well and have proven to be sturdy and reliable. And, I like the color. The grips are comfortable and where I used to get blisters using ski poles, I have no issues with these. Recommend them..

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

My boyfriend has been wearing these Quest 4D GTX boots while running pack trips (with horses) for the past few wet weeks in the Tetons and is the only one in the group who has had dry feet. He is a size 11 and the boots fit true to size. He also beats up gear and these have remained durable and reliable in mountain environments from early in the morning to late at night. He - Teton Outfitters - gives them a five stars. Wants to live in them for as long as possible.

Wore this jacket most days this season. It is storm, wind, snow strong- with the Clima Pro Storm material- and is truly burly in external forces. There is nice movement to this jacket with great features that include underarm zips, powder skirt, big pockets, and helmet sized hood. Built from strong material that will last. I'm a medium in most everything- 5'8- and found this jacket fits true to size.

Wore this most every day last winter and it has stood the test of time and use. Love the cute visor and the custom air function that molds it specifically to your head. Gotta say I do love Pink and it is easy to keep clean with removable, washable parts. Comfortable, cute, and a reliable protector in all ski terrain.
