Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I used it as a backpacking pack and I loved the size. This is smaller and lighter than my osprey. I actually like how it doesnt have multiple compartments. I fit everything I needed: a two-person tent w/ footprint, a not-so-tiny sleeping pad, my sleeping bag, my first aid stuff, down jacket, doggy gear, and a bear vault. I thought it was comfortable.

I've only run twice in these in North Texas winter. They felt very breathable, meaning not warm in cold weather. That's fine as they will be good for compression and support come summer. I've never had a pair of tights prior to these, but they feel well-made. They compressed and supported in a comfortable way.

I've only worn these a fist full of times and so far they are very comfortable and extremely breathable. Upon visual inspection they look like they have high-quality craftsmanship. Wearing gives the same impression. My only question is whether they can last a reasonable amount of time. I'm optimistic.

Due to price I've been slowly accumulating ExOfficio underwear ...I have the sport, the give n go brief, and the boxer brief. All fit fantastically and all live up to the hype. the give-n-go brief is probably my favorite of the three I mentioned.The sport is a little more minimalistic in its coverage so some might feel it can get a little tight up front. The boxer brief obviously has more coverage and I don't want that much all the time. The give n go brief splits the difference leaving you with an all-the-time fit and feel.You might find yourself asking "can I get a discount if I buy in bulk?"

Love the boot. I use it in a casual environment. I haven't taken it hiking yet. Not a fan of the inserts, but not a big deal because I use custom orthotics which fit nicely by-the-way. The quality is worth the price. Saw these boots a little cheaper elsewhere, but backcountry service is worth the extra.

I bought these to keep my hands warm in northwest Montana. They did the job, and because they fit well they didn't get in the way. I thing these would combo well with some ski gloves, too. Like the reviewer below says, there's no special grip material, so care should be taken when using while driving.
