I own the Thermarest compressible, an LL Bean compressible, have used a couple inflatables and others. This is by far the best camping pillow I've used. I'm a side sleeper, and have always had a rough time getting comfortable while backpacking. This solved it! Only had it for two weeks, been out one weekend, and didn't wake up once during the night! Packs down smaller than any of the others as well. Great pillow.

Love the semi-athletic cut. Fits great for car camping, backpacking, trekking, and snowshoeing. Sleeves are a little long, but since they are supposed to be climbing worthy as well, makes sense. Shirts reach wrist when I put my arms straight up. The fabric is awesome - low snag, ultra breathable - even in humid Texas.

I have many brands tech shirts. I like the fit of these the best - athletic cut of Arcteryx beats them all. As with moth Arcteryx products, just well done.

Use them for trail running, pavement running, backpacking, car camping, and hiking. Love these shoes. Will buy the Crossmax 2 when it comes out. Comfortable, light, easy to clean (handle being thrown in washing machine just fine), shoelace system are great (don't get sand burrs and other stuff in laces), and great traction.

I'm an frequent Arc'teryx user, and a little bigger of a guy. Usually where an XL (sometimes L) in most of these types of shirts. The XXL is quite snug - which Icebreaker says it supposed to be tighter - but it's tight enough that it's a tad too tight for my liking. Otherwise, awesome shirts. I still use them despite the lack of comfort. They just don't stink after multiple days, and look great, no matter how crumpled up they were in my pack.

I love this thing. Great to have by a fire as emergency use, or to haul water for dishes, or to haul water to sit comfortable while filtering for drinking. Yes, it's material, so it won't stand up perfectly. I found if you don't fill it up all the way, and lean it against a tree, or hang it from a low branch, all is well. It does exactly what it's meant to do.

This jacket doesn't have a back fabric to it - no fleece or other material. So it's not meant to be warm, but it's perfect for cool or windy days while backpacking/hiking. When I'm working hard, it's perfect since it lets out the heat, but keeps me from getting too cold when stopped. I also use it just for wind protection and add my Marmot vest or down vest underneath for some warmth. I have also used full down jacket (not vest) underneath to allow better breathing, while adding some water resistance (great for cold days w/snow). Close fit, great velcro cuffs, slick looking jacket. Does exactly what I want it to.

I have a Vizsla (see title) and ordered a Medium. He's about 50 lbs, 25" inches tall (shoulder). So right on good sized male Vizsla. He hates wearing anything, but as soon as it's below 30 degrees, he is just fine with this thing on and keeps on chasing squirrels, birds, bunnies, etc. as if it doesn't exist. Definite must for short-haired dogs in high altitude, cooler weather. Doesn't cover his male parts, but keeps his chest covered while bushwhacking. He still sleeps under my puffy sub 30 degrees, but this definitely keeps him from shivering all night.
