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

From all the five star reviews I was looking forward to finally find the perfect gloves, but it comes up short!

Pro: True to size and it's a perfect fit to my hands. It does feel great when it can keep my hands warm and windproof.

Cons: It really can't keep your hands warm when outside temperature falls below 25F. It also is not as waterproof as it claims. I was outside shoveling wet snow and returns home with soaked gloves. The stitching is around my left thumb is getting loose from the snow shoveling...all this under 2013-2014 NYC winter...it's certainly colder than most recent years but I had high expectations from other reviews. Lastly, don't use it near velcros, it will stick to it and turn the gloves into a fuzzy ball if you repeat it often enough.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased this headlamp for my next hiking vacation and instead, I used it for interior painting! I was impressed by the brightness and long battery life. I have no doubt when I do go hiking next, this headlamp will be strap to my head to guide the way!

I purchased this item for hiking at Grand Canyon. It's nearly perfect, other than the fact, one of the bottle came leaking. I fixed by buying a new water bottle there. I basically hiked 20 miles with both bottles to keep me well hydrated.

It is well-made and comfortable. If you carry a backpack at the same time, beware, the clip might scratch against your pack.
