5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I purchased this bag for a week long trip and it worked perfectly. I packed two pairs of jeans, 5 pairs of leggings, 3 pairs of shorts, more shirts than I needed (just ask my boyfriend), and two pairs of sandals and a pair of sneakers. I still had room for a textbook, which I did not open once while on my vacation. I also had plenty of room for charging cables, my kindle, and toiletries with room to spare. My worries over having adequate packing space were all for nothing. The bag fit well in the overhead bin on my flights and it was comfortable to carry around as a backpack and using the side handle. I intend on using this for camping in the future as I feel like all the compartments will come in handy.

Love these softshells
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 145 lbs
Size Purchased: 6/tall

I bought these in the 6/Tall size as I am a 5'11 and they fit perfectly. I have used them on a few alpine climbs and they have performed better than I expected. They haven't suffered any damage despite my rubbing them on rough granite and glissading down icy snow. They kept me warm on chilly days and were surprisingly comfortable in 80 degree weather. The vents on the legs are very nice to have for the warmer days. I love these, totally recommend.

Excellent soft shell pants
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 150 lbs
Size Purchased: 8

I have had these pants for a year now and have used them for everything from backcountry skinning and skiing, resort skiing, and several alpine climbs. I am 5'10, 150lbs and tried on both the size 6 and 8. Both fit well, but I went with the size 8 to accommodate base layers. Material has held up against crampons, rock and ice. The vents are a super nice feature which I have used on several occasions and been grateful for. The pockets are a nice size and the material is just awesome. There are elastic velcro bands on the waist which are nice to sinch down if wearing without a base layer. I will be repurchasing these in the future, just so I can have a second pair.
