Great lightweight backpacking pack!
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This pack has been through a lot with me! Heres some feedback. Obviously lightweight, thin fabric. Stretchy side pockets, very stuffable, (is that a word?). Durable fabric- I have literally shoved so many things in here without thinking about it and it has not torn once. Although a little critter did bite a hole in the front pouch when I was camping! But thats what I get for having granola accessible ;) The back support is limited, yet comfortable. It may just be me, but I cant comfortably hike more than 7 miles or so (depending on the load) without my shoulders hurting. The straps aren't greatly padded. Yet I have gone much further than that and I survived! The bottom of pack has loops to tuck the bottom of the pack under, making the pack smaller for shorter hikes. Helpful yet I have never used that feature.
The picture attached is about 35-40lbs of gear and there was still more room in the top! Overall awesome pack, just needs more support.

Great tent, true to standards
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Had this tent for about 5 years now, and it has not failed me!! Love love love it. Been in hail storms, heavy rain, and heat and it has held up wonderfully! Nothing has been broken, snapped, or bent although I do take real good care of my things. I do not use any extra waterproofing besides the rain fly so that says a lot! Fits 2 comfortably, unless you dont mind snuggling! Pretty darn lightweight, and sturdy! SUPER easy to pitch

great introductory hiking boot
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 147 lbs
Size Purchased: 8.5

I have had my moab's for about 5 years now and they are still in GREAT shape for being through hell and back! I have worked in Yellowstone for about 10 months, along with numerous other trips before and after, and they have been sturdy and continued to be waterproof without any sprays or extra waterproofing of any kind! They laces have been in tact, no rips or kinks. The soles have held up great and overall no rips in seams of any kind. Just DIRTY! I did buy the 8.5 and I shoulda got the size 9. This has caused a lost toe nail or two (which is my fault) so make sure you get a half size up if youre in between like me!

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 147 lbs
Size Purchased: 9

I Love this shoe so far! Havent wore it out yet, just been breaking them in before I head out to Colorado. I am between sizes 8.5-9 and I had to go with the 9's. Very comfortable and breathable. I have very flat feet, so sometimes its hard for me to find a shoe that has no pressure points but great luck with these thus far!
