I haven't needed it for any real adventure as of yet. However, it was super intuitive to set up and work with the different features. I love the many features that come with this watch! It is super easy to set up and I feel like it is the watch for all my different activities. Will post more when I get to ski some bigger mountains than the ones here in TN.

This is my first patagonia belt and it will not be my last one (if this one ever wears out!). The belt fits through my loops on every pair of pants I own. The buckle is sturdy and light. It is easy to put the belt through the buckle and you can really cinch it down when necessary. Great product!

I recently took this shell skiing in Montana and North Carolina (yes, amazingly the snow was as good if not better in NC). In MT the jacket held up well in terms of fabric durability, warmth, and breathability. Falling on hard, icy snow, and brushing up against tree branches were common during the MT trip. It didn't tear or show any real signs of distress. The warmth performed just like the specs said. Warm with the right layers for the colder weather and just right for more aggressive movement. It breathed well for more aerobic activities, too. The NC trip saw more precipitation and the jacket beads up like a wax job. The snow didn't melt through and as it melted it kept me dry.

Really quality product! I liked the price for the performance.

I used my on trial "excursion", meaning I was able to get to solid shelter if things hit the fan. The tarp was excellent. Easy to put up and get where I wanted it to be. I recommend finding some aluminum stakes so you have something to tie your tarp down to. I loved the way you can tighten your drawcords. You definitely want to tie a knot at the topmost end so that your line won't pull through and cause your tarp to fail and flap in windy conditions. I gave it a four star rating because it can be little tricky getting the tarp back into the bag with all you lines and tarp. Loved it. . . . works well even in windy conditions. Just make sure you have it secured to the trees and stakes.

I have used this pack for several overnight trips with varying distances. It is light, comfortable and easy to pack. The belt tightens differently than other packs because you pull the strap to the inside. The material is durable and looks good after some rough trips. It has handled itself well in rain, mud and sun and I look forward to many more trips. I believe I can use this on multiple day trips when used like an ultralight pack. Light, durable and super comfortable!
