Fit: True to size

After first getting these and putting them on they were comfortable right out of the box. Walking around and being on my feet for long periods of time and my feet were still comfortable in these shoes. They are very supportive and the GORE-TEX is great for late season hikes when there is some snow on the ground, or going to the store when you don't want to put on a full boot. I like these shoes for their functionality as well as the style, just not a fan of the all brown that most low hikers seem to come in.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

This is my go to jacket when the temps get down low. It fits perfect and has a nice hood for when it gets really cold. It is great for just about anything you need it for. I usually at least have this in my bag in the car when I go out.

It looks like BD has made some major improvements over the previous Transfer 3. This season's model is more squared off and not as round. It has a flatter bottom and it moves snow really well. Haven't had to dig anyone out with it but I have tested it out and really don't have anything to complain about. I do agree I wish I could combine the longer shaft with the quick assembly of the Deploy series, but this is probably the best choice for an all around utility shovel.

This is great for just about anything. The extra length allows it to be very versatile. If I am just using it to cover my face I have tripled it up and had a nice warm gaiter. When using it as a balaclava you can double up over your mouth or pull it up from the bottom and only have a single layer over your mouth while still having a double layer over your neck. It is it not cold enough to need it over your face just leaving it bunched up on your neck helps the cold from coming down the top of your jacket. Bottom line is this thing has so many uses, way more than a traditional gaiter or balaclava.

Fit: Runs small

This jacket is really nice when you don't really need a hard shell. It breathes well but still protects you from wind and light precip. I have stood out in a light rain in this jacket as was still dry underneath. It has a slim fit to it so if you are borderline you might want to size up to leave room for layers. I have been able to put a puffy jacket under it with no effects to movement or comfort.

I like this jacket overall. Like a lot of BD jackets it is a more slim fit, but you probably won't worry about adding any layers under this one. It is good as a stand alone jacket on slightly cool days or a layer on colder days. I was a little surprised at how thin it was but it will work great for a layering system. I don't think I would pay full price for it though.

After spending all week out in the hot summer sun and feeling the back of my neck bake I threw this on. Even just wearing it around the neck made a huge difference. No sunburn and no baking feeling. This thing is small enough to fit in a pocket so I think it is going to be with me almost anywhere I go.

This is a solid ice axe. It is comfortable in your hands. It comes in 4 sizes so you can find the perfect size for you. It is light enough that if you think you will need it but find out there is not as much snow as you thought you won't even notice you packed it all the way up. Great buy I am very happy with it. Don't forget the covers to protect it and your gear.

This is a great rain jacket, it does a good job of keeping you dry and is nice and lightweight. For the price it can't be beat. The high collar is nice if you don't want to put up the hood. It will keep light rain out. The hood is great for heavier rains and it stows in the collar if you don't need it. This is a rain jacket and now a jacket you will want to wear all the time. If you are looking for a shell jacket or rain jacket for wet areas you might want to consider a more breathable one, but for afternoon showers this jacket is great.

This jacket is very versatile you can use it on cold winter days to cool spring days. I have worn this jacket in 50 to low 60 degree windy weather with shorts and was very comfortable. I have used it down to the mid teens with just a t-shirt underneath and was still warm. If it is really windy or rainy/snowy throw on a shell and you are good to go. I used to be sold on fleece but once I started looking into this jacket I easily made the switch. It is a lot lighter and less bulky compared to fleece so it is great for throwing in your pack just in case. Even in summer this jacket will make it into my pack. It packs up small into its own pocket so it won't take up much room and can double as your pillow. It is an all around great jacket and well worth the price.
