This skirt works looks pretty good, but it does ride up a bit. The padding in the shorts is almost nonexistent, but I just switched out the shorts and now it's perfect. People who go on short rides probably wouldn't have an issue with it, but after 40 miles I got a little sore.

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.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

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!!
