I read the reviews but still decided to give it a go: As with every other bathing suit I've ever tried on and most I've ever seen, this one has such thick seams that it pulls the material and even though it's brand new, it came out of the packaging with wrinkles and bunching along all stitching. The thick edges also cut in and on someone with any sort of butt, it looks incredibly bad and is uncomfortable. I kept this only because I have never NOT had this issue with a bathing suit and at clearance prices, was ok keeping it.

One positive: it stays put. My butt stays covered when I swim.

I purchased this to build up my selection of tanks with built in bras, specifically with yoga and climbing in mind. So far, this isn't my favorite just because I have a narrow build but wider shoulders and it cuts in a bit between my shoulder and boob which is never flattering. However, it's incredibly comfortable, it's soft and lightweight, I feel completely free and unencumbered in my movements, the straps stay put and don't cut in, I've had no issues with pilling or stretching, and will continue to use it on future climbs for sure.

I've been backpacking and car camping with a corrugated foam pad for 4 years. It's been great in so many ways: yes, it's big and bulky but would just attach it to the exterior of my pack and it would work out fine, it's light as a freaking feather! However, I finally had to admit that I just don't sleep well with that foam pad. It's too thin for side sleeping and doesn't provide enough insulation for warmth on cold nights. I always sleep poorly and wake up sore. I bought this to solve that problem and boy, is it such an improvement!

The Therm-a-Rest ProLite 4 is significantly heavier than my foam pad but packs much smaller. It still packs larger than I would like but it fits in my pack no problem. I keep reminding myself that the extra weight is due to the fact that I purchased the Regular size and it's 1.5 inches of pure comfort that's meant for 4-season use. It truly does offer awesome thermal insulation when I've camped at temperatures well-below freezing. Plus, I'm 5'5.5" and about 125 lbs and I'm a side sleeper with bony hips and I don't think I've ever been more comfortable while camping or backpacking.

Due to the size and weight, I will likely keep this as my go-to car camping pad for sure. I will also continue to use it for late-season backpacking and short trips due to the excellent thermal insulation and how comfortably I sleep. I will probably try to find something else that packs smaller and lighter for any serious backpacking in my future.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have a 30 degree bag from Marmot (Women's Sorcerer) which I love. What I don't love, that sticky-ish feeling of sleeping against nylon and rayon and other man-made fabrics. I read almost every review for almost every bag liner out there and ultimately just had to pick one. I'm glad this is the one I chose.

When it arrived, I was pleased at the feel, it's very soft and as my immediate reaction was to jump inside, I also was pleased by an immediate feeling of warmth. It will certainly make my bag more comfortable and keep me warmer when it's cold out without me having to bring along a heavier bag.

My only two issues are minor. I tend to start the night very cold and like to get cozy and snuggle into my blankets but always get too warm midway through the night. I'll still be able to unzip my bag but my preferred cool-down is to stick my leg out and with this I won't be able to do that. It is also incredibly long (I'm 5'5" and it goes way over my head). The length isn't necessarily a bad thing, in my opinion, but it may be annoying for some people.
