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

I purchased the Trilogy GTX Jacket for rugged-weather backpacking and infrequent, summer climbing weather protection. I am 6-ft 1”, 215-lbs and chemo has left me with a tendency to be cold. Thus, it is important for me to be able to layer well to maintain a warm core.

The Active Shell waterproof breathable membrane fabric works very well- no claminess. With the long water-repellent pit zips and large wrist closures this jacket allow for multiple temperature adjustments, especially when on the move. All zippers are waterproofed and all seams are heat-sealed. You have to choose the correct size- my XL is a European size XXL.

It is relatively light, packable and provides great temp control when layered over base and/or mid layers. The large wrist closures easily fit over long sleeve puffy layers and large gloves.

The two zippered handwarmer pockets with an inside mesh backing that can aid in breathing if the pockets are opened. A bellowed quick-access chest pocket is capable of holding sunglasses, lip balm and light gloves plus a snack bar at one time.

It is helmet compatible- a semi-rigid hood visor is adjustable for height and depth and retains its shape when you're moving. The jacket is on the short side but the elastic hem cinches well to prevent drafts and retain heat.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small

The HH ® Dry Revolution Men's boxer bottom is supposed to be the ideal, lightweight sport baselayer. Yes, the seamless construction with flatlock stitching eliminates chafing for comfort; Yes, the unique Lifa ® fibre technology is non-itch; Yes, it is dry next to the skin and keeps you dry all day long by wicking away perspiration. Great fabric.
But it does not provide support for the important bits and that is a big negative- can’t recommend.

This is a great day pack-it has already proved itself. The bladder system works easily, slides in with dedicated space for a day's stuff- light rain top & bottom, xtra layer, 1st aid kit and trail food. I actually bought an extra 2L hydration insert to go with the 3L that comes with the pack so I have more flexibility. Bite valve works well but be careful of the magnet locator- keep it away from your compass! This is a light pack and the pockets on the outside provide good flexible stowage. The trekking pole loops work well and the integrated rain cover is a plus. You get what you pay for- this is Osprey and worth the $$. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

I purchased the large/long as I am 6'-3" with broad shoulders. This sleeping bag has very good length and is roomy enough in the shoulder area to be comfortable but not restricting. Good warmth to weight. Cozy and comfortable but I have not had a chance to test its performance in unpredicable wx yet.
