Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The 840d nylon really has proven to be quite tough when dragging it up on ledges and carrying heavy loads is no problem. Minor wear and tear on the pack from hauling it over coarse granite but the straps and buckles are holding up great. The straps used to tighten down the roll top are starting to fray from lots of use, this the only part of the bag im worried about. if they tear.. somewhat s.o.l. if your out back with a lot of gear. The load bearing haul points were very helpful for dragging it up steep approach slabs that would have been sketchy to climb up with a heavy bag(40lbs). The removable rope carry strap proved to be worthless(to me) since my bag always seems to be packed to the brim.(would be better if it was longer..) I also have the 55l but haven't used it yet this season and it would be a better option if your the one whose always carrying all the gear.. rope, full rack, draws, and maybe your girlfriends gear as well as food,water, layers. id rather have a bit of extra space than packed to the brim. The roll top lid when packed full is somewhat of a pain to deal with so pack your stuff accordingly.

to sum things up, its worth the money and its held up to alot of abuse.. being that i dont really baby my gear.. ( toys not trophys!!)

although I blew the edge out 2 weeks in... not sure if the construction is to blame or the shark... ill never know exactly. board rides great, edges well, and shreds pow just fine. Stoked on the board except that the edge blew out in my opinion kinda easy.. but say what you want. GNU sent me another half that was a defect but who cares, they took care of me and that was last winter. it held up in AK and the low tide Mtns of Eastern Sierra. Got over 40 days on it and shes still shredding. Just bagged North Col. on Red Slate 2 days ago, 20+ mi. Bottom Line: Its a worthy board and id buy another.

Great backcountry pack with tons of room for all your gear(day trip). Pockets that are actually useful! I bought this pack to carry my DSLR while splitboarding. The back zipper is a quick easy way to get to your layers, snacks, camera gear. I've loaded this thing with atleast 40lbs of gear for a Hut Trip. Lots of durable straps for gear and 38 liters of space make this pack ideal for almost any kind of backcountry day.

Fit: True to size

have had this jacket with the hood now for coming on 3 years. Worn this thing sooo many times whether i was snow camping, or camping in the summer or just around the house on cold days to doing multipitch climbs.. super lightweight and warm. no tears or scratches. Nice snug fit for layering, super key for me. Has lost an exceptional amount of the down feathers, but that just happens so oh well. my only con is the colors are a little to stand out, but if your cool with that. its a great deal when on sale! i think its way worth it!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

killer shoes, bought them a 1/2 half size small and they fit perfect. comfy enough to stay in them for multipitch and still got that snug fit for tougher routes. Solid rubber and thin enough to feel that rock but enough comfort that my toes dont feel like their dying like some my buddies. and yes they still hurt after awhile but id expect that if u want a solid fit.

I wanted to make this bag work but could not deal with the zipper. Super light down bag, compresses to nothing, great loft and fit to the bag. Sleeps super warm. I badly wanted to make this bag work but the zipper is a huge problem. Snags almost everytime and isn't easy to fix. If they could fix the zipper, this bag would be perfect but until then, i'd save your money.
