I really want to like this shirt but it isn't very practical for yoga or climbing, for me at least. The straps are loose on my shoulders and if I twist around too much, like when doing yoga, I run risk of being really indecent. I think it has something to do with the loose shoulder straps, but it really doesn't cover my boobs very well and that could get awkward quickly. I sized down and the same thing still happened.

This is one of the best jackets I own. I have a version that is a few years old and I recently replaced it with the newer version. It's great! Like my other one, I wear this one almost every day. It's perfect for backpacking and climbing. It's thin enough that it can be worn as a mid-layer when it's cold or an outer layer when it's warmer. I wear mine almost every day and it has seen a lot of abuse when I've been bushwhacking through places like the Ozarks and the Appalachians. I work at an outfitter store and there are some pretty good deals, but I still buy Norrona jackets instead. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a lightweight fleece.

I cycle about 150 miles a week and wanted a bike jersey that didn't look like a bike jersey. It fits in when I go to the grocery store after a ride to get a snack, but it just as functional as my other bike jerseys. By far my favorite of them all.

I took these with me on a three month backpacking trip and they drove me crazy. Every five to ten miles I would have to stop and adjust them because they would ride up in the front (they just didn't fit properly). It doesn't sound like a huge deal, but it gets old really quickly. I really wanted to like them, but they just weren't functional compared to other brands of the same style.

I have had this stove for a couple of years and recently used it on a month backpacking trip. It's a really durable stove; it's the only one that I haven't managed to beat up after a year or so. It also cooks under any conditions. When other people couldn't get their water to boil my stove did just fine.
It is definitely bigger than canister stoves, but it is worth it for the versatility and durability. My uncle has a Whisperlite from 20 years ago and it still works perfectly.

II used this tent while backpacking the Appalachian Trail and it was spectacular. It weighs almost nothing and is a breeze to set up. A great part about it that came in handy for me was that you can put up the rainfly first when it's raining, so the inside of your tent doesn't get wet. It's a little small, but I slept in it every night with my pack in it with me and I did not have any problems, but I'm also 5'3" so taller people would probably need to use the vestibule for their pack.
After over 80 consecutive nights of use it does not show any wear, but I got a groundcloth so that helped save the bottom of the tent.

I had two of these bras for a two month backpacking trip and they worked wonderfully. They don't get as stinky as regular bras, because of the wool, and they fit really well. They are also so comfortable you forget you're wearing them. Being a huge fan of comfort means that was very important to me.

I have a few packs that I like to rotate through and this one is my least favorite. The lack of a frame with such a big pack means that you have to be really careful how you pack it. I also don't like how the top of the pack opens backwards from most other packs because it means that if you are digging in the main pocket you have to close it to access the front pockets.I'm definitely going to keep using it, and it is nice, I just like Ospreys so much better.

I went on a three month backbacking trip and this was my primary shirt. It held up amazingly when bushwhacking through thorn bushes and the like. It got shredded but with me it got more abuse in three months than most shirts would get in years. I'm buying a couple more for my next trip!!
