Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Owned the stove for three years and have been very impressed with its minimal weight, size and great power and simmering ability. In the past year, however, the stove has clogged up several times (I only use white gas) and to the point where it has become non repairable in the field or at home. I sent back to Primus for repair and issue persisted. Not going to give up on this stove but may need a new one to get confidence back.

I have put this boot through a lot of miles over the last year. I have many days in them, skiing Colorado's 14'ers, the Chugach, as well as a ski / climb of Rainier. I weigh 195 lbs and have skied the maestrales with 100mm and 125mm underfoot skis. They power the 100mm waist skis well in all conditions and the 125mm waist skis in only powder conditions. I ski them hard and had no support issues when driving turns (only issue came under a 60lb pack, but this is mostly expected). These boots are superb to hike in and are easy to get in and out of, which is key in cold conditions (extended tours with winter camping). For boot weight to power ratio, this boot is in the top of its category. The boot is light and it will be interesting to see how the boot holds up over time. I have had some minor durability issues (overlap strap buckle slightly bent - but still functioned, as well as the lock-tight wearing out on the overlap screws). Scarpa was good to repair the boot and supply a backcountry repair kit.
