Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

My wife wanted a lighter pair of pants for warmer days. She fit her perfectly, she loved the cut and the "fit" (slim). She wore these a hand full of times in the spring snowboarding and snowmobiling, they were a little to light for her cruising 40mph through some powder fields, but once we were off the machines and boarding she was fine. She likes that she can wear these after riding without looking too bulky.

This was a gift for my brother in-law graduating college. Sort of a big deal.
Not only did he graduate, he got a killer job fresh from school. Now he has to go dress up and be corporate all the day. This Corporal watch keeps him stylish and on time for important meetings. He is an active guy on the weekends and this can handle anything he throws at it. It's not too big to draw unneeded attention, but enough to draw compliments.

Rather than buy a new filter or switch to a different brand, just replace the filter to your life saver.
And make sure you replace your filter when you should, there is no reason to use an old filter and risk getting sick from one of your favorite past times. Replacing the filter is painless and easy. After pumping water in Escalante, Uintas, and the Wind River range, it was time to replace my filter. I usually use coffee filters to extend the life of my filter.

Last year I purchased the Mush Sola sandal, and sadly they have finally worn out. These don't fit quite as well as the Sola's did, but I still like these sandals a lot. The sole of these sandals is more durable compared to the Sola. I could wear these in sketchier terrain compared to the Sola's also, so that's a plus.

After a few pairs of the Prana Stretch Zion short I wanted something else to try that was comparable.
Great fit, just right at the knee. Will be great for active wear around the mountains and around town in the summer heat.

Gifted these to the wife. She needed a small frame that would stay on her head while active. Also, she wanted to wear them daily around town and look good.
She does not feel the pressure on the nose as some other hater blockers she wears, they don't fall off if she looks down, or if she has them on top of her head and she is moving around. So far she is stoked. She said there is a small spot of pressure behind her ears, but nothing compared to her old pair.

Not as sleek as I thought it was going to be. But, it's not a massive headlamp either. The light options are great, I bought this so I had a red light option. I was tired of dimming my other head lamp, I wanted something that would be better for in the tent or fumbling around the camp buckets and tables.
I'll have to see how the batteries are the next time I get out (to compare to the previous review).

I had bought the Oakley Spirit thinking it would be a great light weight hot temps shirt. The Spirit is great for being active, but I wanted something I could wear to a baseball game or around town biking, while still having the option to use it in the mountains. This Capilene shirt meets that criteria for me. It fits more like a crew T but has the material to not look like a I'm a walking sweat bucket. The only problem is I only bought 1 and I'll probably be wearing this all the time this summer.

6' 200lbs I bought the XL. The length is great, as it does not ride up past my waist while riding. The sleeves are a little shorter, similar to a XC style rather than freeride. The material is what is killer here, great movement and breathability. It also looks fine as a t-shirt if I wanted to wear it around on the hot summer days.

Bought this as a gift for my niece who splits her time between the pool and the gulf coast of Florida. She loves the style. Fits great. the nylon and spandex gives her great movement as she is running and crouching in the sand constantly. Dries quick and is machine washable!

Have you ever bought somebody a gift, and then realized you bought something really nice and you should probably keep it? But you don't keep it, you end up giving the gift, because that's why you bought it. And you keep thinking to yourself, maybe I should get one for me.
That's what happened here. The 60%/40% of cotton and poly is a great feel. The received was stoked on this hoodie. Says it fits true to size.

I bought the 8" and the 14". I'll probably need to get the 10" also. The 8in is perfect for 1-3 people. Compacts nicely with the fold-able handle. This is something I would consider taking on a backpacking trip. It is now a permanent resident with my camping gear.

The 14" is a bahama mama! You must put the handle on with 3 bolts, it does not fold or bend, so to stash this in a container you would need to remove the handle each time. The handle is probably another 8". It's not a time killer, but it still is not as convenient as the 8". You could feed the masses with this bad boy. I'll for sure be using this at home and the once in a while camp trips when I am feeding a large group.

Used these the past two weekends car camping . So far I like them. Easy to pack/stow away since they go inside one another. Not too large that I could use these by myself or feed a group of probably around 4-6 depending on the dish.
I could see myself taking the 1 liter pot by itself on a backpacking trip.

I've had this blade for years. It goes everywhere with me. Super light and easy to use, open and close with 1 hand.
I've even tried to treat it as a throwing knife while killing time at camp.. it survived my awful attempts. I recently upgraded to a different blade for camping, but this will stay in my pocket every other day.
