Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size

I had one of the older generations of this watch and it's greatly improved. The size is perfect for a petite woman and the GPS locates quickly. I've never had to stand around waiting for signal to the GPS. It's simple and easy to use and has all of the features you would want in a basic GPS running watch. I have it connected to Garmin Connect and have been able to see all of my accomplishments and how I've improved as I've gone as well. So far, no complaints and would definitely give this as a gift to any runner friends.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got my first pair 2 years ago to keep me running in Utah winters. Now I'm giving them as gifts. When the roads and trails are slick, whether you're hiking, walking the dog, or running these are key to keeping vertical.

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

A little over a year ago I got a training log with a magazine subscription for free. When I recently ran out of pages I soon realized how much I'd come to rely on it to help me take stock of my hard work and reference for both information and inspiration. For example, I have survived a 55 mile week before (surely I can do it again). This journal is by far superior to my last. It's full of training tips and information with ways to customize and adjust to my needs. Sure, I could just use a notebook. But I have a hunch this may keep me running on schedule in ways a notebook just can't stack up.

I got these so I wouldn't have an excuse when it's too dark, cold, wet, windy, snowy, etc to go run. While my will to go still wanes, the reasons not to list is weaker. These pants help strengthen my resolve when the going gets tough. Pockets are handy and they're easy to slip over shoes in case you dash out the door only to return realizing you need the extra layer. They pack really small so they're great for travel (or to stow on a hike in case the weather turns). They are not waterproof, so just know that hurricane like conditions will still leave you drenched.

I adore this fleece for how cozy it is, and stylist to boot, but I wish it fit better. According to the sizing chart I'm a M, but I feel like I'm swimming in it in the waist and chest. May need to adjust the sizing chart.

I run in wind, rain, sleet, and snow and this jacket is my new best friend. Lighter than air and breathable it repels moisture while making sure you don't overheat or feel the wind go through you. Hood sits nicely and doesn't constrain or fall down. Chest pocket is perfect for key, cash and ID. Extra layers on the shoulder and hood keep you dry where you're most likely to get wet. This jacket is not waterproof so stay away if you need it for torrential downpours, but is a great companion to keep getting out there.

Really good mug. Beware when unlocking something hot, you will get a jet packed punch of steam first. The unlocking is also a bit weird at first, but you get used to it quickly. Dishwasher safe, which is a bonus, but the whole thing gets a good sudsy shake before going in the machine just in case.

After scouring reviews online for backpacking tents I settled on the BA Blacktail 2 and have not been disappointed. It's super simple and quick to setup. With 2 doors it's easy to get in and out of without having to climb over your partner. Lots of pockets for headlamps, maps, books and dog collars. Plenty of room with the rainfly on to tuck bags safely under and out of the elements. I have not put it through rain yet, but am optimistic it will meet the challenge.

My least favorite part of camping is getting up in the cold and waiting for coffee to brew in a percolator. With the Jetboil my wait time is cut exponentially (with the help of Starbucks actual drinkable instant coffee, but would be great for a press as well). Super light and compact this works well for backpacking, or to speed up car camping. Would recommend to anyone lacking patience like myself.

These carabiners are super light weight and simple to use. I love the quick lock of the slider and that it doesn't get super tight like a screwgate lock. Easier to maneuver when you're losing dexterity at the end of the day or a tough climb. I use it with my personal anchor to clip in and set up to rappel, not to belay.
