Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I gave these pants their first workout today and I'm really pleased. They were extremely comfortable during my entire work shift plus the walk to and from work on a 90 degree day. On my work days I walk several miles. These pants are clearly very breathable, my legs didn't sweat today. Compared to my Dickies work pants that I usually wear on warmer days these are thicker material and yet cooler as well.

My pair is made in Colombia, they are made of 96% cotton canvas type material and all that cotton really helps with the comfort level. There is triple stitching on the inseam and waist area, and they have a traditional blue jean 5 pocket layout +1 small pocket on the right thigh area that can fit most cell phones or a pocket knife, little flashlight, pen etc. If you have a giant "Moses size tablet" phone it won't fit. I picked up the burnt olive color which is an attractive semi-faded olive green. And they shrunk only a small amount in the wash.

It will be a few more months until I can test them in cool weather. Great casual styling and comfort with these pants, they seem to fit true to size. I will seriously consider getting another pair in the future.

Hey backcountry, some of us unfortunate little creeps are short. What's with all the 32" inseams? It seems to be this way for most the pants I look at on this website. I'd love to see more 30" inseam pant varieties. That being said, I've used backcountry several times before, and other than my little rant here, have nothing but good things to say about them.

I found this jacket for sale at backcountry.com. I thought it looked like a nice jacket for the price and I was right. This thing is pretty thin and light, it would be very easy to pack. Despite it's being thin it offers good protection from cool weather. For really cold situations it can be used as a mid layer. I think it also has zip-in integration for Columbia outer shells. This thing has a soft inner liner so it's comfy and warm right away. The fit is like a zip-up fleece coat. At 5'8" 148 lbs the small fits perfectly. Backcountry's service was good as always.

I like to have lots of pockets for all the things I never carry on me... But if I wanted to, I could. This is why I was interested in the decagon. I use this jacket for colder rainy days, water beads really well off of it. It has a powder skirt and goggle/ipod pocket and would make a good ski/snowboard jacket though I imagine you'd want a decent midlayer underneath on the colder snow days. It's light enough to cram into a backpack (but would take most the space) it's more bulky than a plain windbreaker. This thing also has a soft liner on the chin area for when you need the hood. The only reason I rated this 4 stars out of 5 is the velcro on the hand pockets, it's an extra 2 seconds of hassle I shouldn't have to deal with (to get my hands past both velcro and zippers just to get into the pockets). As somebody reviewed before, zippers alone would have sufficed on the hand warmer pockets. Other than that this is a great jacket that with the proper layering can keep you warm in almost any weather.
