This product works well for cleaning yourself or your gear. It rinses quickly and easily. The bottle's opening is nicely designed to allow you to easily use just a bit at a time. The amount of liquid complies with airline carry on bag regulations. The only problem was that I had to use much more than expected. As others said, household cleaners seems to be more concentrated. Not a bad product but I expected more.

I used this as a sleeping bag in warm weather situations. It is very wide and plenty long. It would likely bunch up a bit if you used it in a non-roomy sleeping bag. The drawstring packing bag worked fine and was large enough for the travel sheets to fit easily. The overall packed size is still fairly small.

The bag is fairly simple and would work well as a travel sheet or sleeping bag replacement in warmer environments. While I haven't used it as a sleeping bag liner, I wouldn't expect it to add much additional warmth.

Overall I have been happy with this jacket. It packs down pretty small. It's nice for summer use as it breaths well and doesn't have any added insulation. I haven't had any issues with the rain protection. The zippers are all rubberized to protect them from rain as well.

I ordered the jacket in my usual size. It generally fit as expected with slightly longer sleeves than normal. However, with properly adjusted velcro wrist closures the long sleeves aren't a problem. The hood is a bit oversized which can be a positive or negative depending on your intended use. Even without any kind of hat or helment underneath, it's not so large that's it's a problem though.

The velco wrist closures are my biggest complaint. They come undone very easily. I'm a little confused by the design choice to use half regular velco but for the other side a piece with large rubber teeth. The rubber teeth simply don't grab onto the other velcro side well at all. While it rarely completely seperates, it always stays loose and you constantly have to check it.

All in all for the reduced price I got this jacket for, it has been a great purchase.
