This is a pretty awesome tent! It is large and roomy for a two person. The high point of the tent is in the middle, so it is easy to move around in. I've slept through multiple rain storms in this tent, and have never had an issue with water leaking. It is a very lightweight tent though, and can rip easily, so be careful with it!
My only complaint is that the gear loft is too tight, and anything you put up there just falls right out. The pockets on the sides are similarly hard to use.

I only got this jacket at the the end of last winter so I haven't worn it a lot, but it is very warm. a huge selling point for me was the waterproofness. my previous puffy was fairly water resistant, but still wasn't great. it's nice not to have to worry about it. the hood attachment is also super secure. I'm 5'8", 135 and the small fits me really well. the length is long enough to still cover my lower back when sitting, but it doesn't feel like a parka either.

I LOVE this shirt. it is so comfortable and super functional. it dries quickly and does a great job of regulating your temp and keeping you comfortable. it's a little fragile, but mostly in the washer. I have a few little holes from the washing machine. I would recommend with any washable wool that you wash it in a pillow case or mesh laundry bag, just to keep it safe. I also don't wash mine very much. I just hang it up and let it air out. It's usually good to go in a few hours

I really like these. they are really comfortable and they breathe and dry really well. I've had one pair for about 3 years and they are a tiny bit pilled, but otherwise they are more comfy and haven't had so much as a loose thread. I bring like 4 pair on an eight day work trip and just wash them at night as needed and hang them out to dry and they're good by morning.

my first GEAX brand tire. I like it so far. been using it mostly in the La Sal mountains. it gets good traction, and also roles really well on hard stuff. it's been pretty durable, but it has worn down in spots from skidding on slick rock.

I work outside all day hiking through the desert. this hat rocks. it totally keeps the sun off my face, and also my neck. I usually wear a collared shirt with the collar flipped up, so I'm totaly covered. with a t-shirt, there is sometimes a little spot between my collar and the flap. it breathes pretty well. the little sweat band isn't that great. the brim gets creased fairly easily but it doesn't really matter. it won't however win you any fashion awards. but hey, that's not why you got it.

I work for the park service and do a ton of backcountry hiking. I've had these since may and have they have done well. the rubber is good and sticky on slick rock. the soles started out great, fairly stiff, good for going over lots of uneven/rocky terrain. however I have recently noticed that they are getting pretty soft under the ball of my foot. the chaco arch support is there and then some. I'd say it's a little bit more arch support than their sandals. I like it, some may not. the leather has been durable, and the perforations really help them breathe. they were pretty comfortable in 100+ weather. the uppers are coming unsewn on one small spot. overall, I like them. I got the "nutbrown," color, and they have a classic old timey style that looks pretty good
