Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large

These pants are great! They are light enough to pack in my backpack and work well with my activities. I like the stretch abilities and the fact they look dam good. On the other hand I would not rub against a granite rock wall with these. The fabric is a little fragile.

Fit: True to size

These Chaco sandals are the best of the best! I have hiked miles in these babies and I never once came across a blister, injury, or poor quality in these sandals. They fit to my feet great and I am pleased with the style. You can do anything in these sandals!

When I had to retire my old original Talon 44 I tried many other packs (many other brands & Osprey models) & nothing could compare to the fit or functionality of this pack. It is the only bag I need for all excursions. Weather hiking the PCT or for a quick day hike into the Cabinet Mtns. this pack can handle it comfortably. It is definitely for light/ultra-light backpacking but is built to last (unlike a lot of other lightweight packs I have tried). The quick attach/detach feature for the trekking poles is nice & the bigger mesh under-lid pocket is super handy. I do miss the pocket inside the brain pocket that the original Talon 44 had but I have learned to cope without it. With a 20 lb. load this thing feels like it is a part of you. If you are looking for a lightweight pack that will perform for years & look great doing it, this pack is for you!

I purchased this pack for my ultra light set-up & I couldn't be any happier! It is made with unbeatable attention to detail & the weight of this thing is almost zero. It fits perfectly into an 8L Outdoor Research Ultra-Light Compression Sack & compresses to 6"x6"! (the OR compression sack does add an extra ounce though) Overall I couldn't be any happier with this bag!

These stakes don't bend...

These stakes don't bend they shatter! I still love these stakes, don't get me wrong, I have put these through hell & have been very mean to them. On a recent winter camping trip, the mix of frozen & rocky ground proved too much for these stakes. Out of 6 stakes 2 broke. Overall great stake, you just can't use these in solid rock... duh...
