Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this as a christmas gift a couple of years ago and it is hands down the coolest flask I have ever used. you can't see it in the pictures, but the front and back of the flask are curved as well. It's an incredibly tactile, sexy shape and snow peak titanium is as good as it gets when it comes to quality. Buy this as a gift for someone and you'll be a hero!

Fit: True to size

These mittens are MEGA warm. No surprise there, but I have found them to be surprisingly versatile too. My hands are always cold. When I use them in full double mitten mode it solves this issue, but also creates dexterity issues that are just a fact of life when it comes to mittens. What I often do is take out the liner mitten and wear a pair of soft shell gloves with the OR outer mitten on top. Gives me the warmth I need but also easy to take the outer mittens off to adjust ski buckets, tension a tent fly, etc. The outer mittens have plenty of room to use your own solution on the inside. I wear a size large which fit me perfectly for the double mitten, but they still provide plenty of room in the outer mitten when I want to use my own options inside as a liner. For me, this is a huge versatility advantage. Love these mittens!

All I can do is gush about this bag. I've slept in it down to about 0 degrees at 10,000' and it is toasty warm. I've also slept in it at 20 degrees and it is not uncomfortably warm - a little bit of venting was all it took. Don't get me wrong, it's too big, bulky, and warm for a 3 season bag, but if it's going down below freezing it's my go-to bag - even over my WM Alpinlite which is rated to 20 degrees. For a full-on winter bag is is very light and compressible. Nothing but tremendously positive things to say. Is $750 a crazy amount to spend on a sleeping bag? Probably. Do I feel like I got my money's worth? Absolutely. Buy quality gear once, take care of it, and use it for years. The WM Puma certainly fits that mold

Struggled to find decent wading boots for my son's 9 year old feet. While I can't comment on how they feel on his feet he's had no complaints and no slips in the river yet. That gets a 5-star review in my book. He has about 8 fishing days into these boots

Overall, very happy with these boots. Grip is fantastic (even better after I added their studs). They fit my feet well (a personal experience of course). Regarding fit, I wear an 11 or 11.5 street shoe. I purchased the 11 and even with 2 pairs of socks and the neoprene booties on my waders they are not cramped at all. The 12's were absolutely huge. So my advice is this - buy your street shoe size, and if you are a half size, go down. I have about 10 fishing days into them - overall, I am very pleased

I bought this tent as a replacement to my old thermarest (self-inflating foam core). It is MUCH lighter, packs smaller, is actually more comfortable than my old pad of similar thickness. It is super warm in cold weather, but doesn't feel hot in warm weather. The ONLY possible trade-off is the fabric feels less durable than my old school thermarest. As such I am reluctant to put in my chair frame for fear of puncturing this expensive pad. I still carry my chair frame with me, but use it without the pad in it - which is actually much more comfortable than it sounds. All in all a fantastic piece of gear!

This is a fantastic tent for what it is - a bomb-proof winter expedition tent. Super stable, super warm. But it's not such a good tent for anything else. For a three-season or one-tent-for-everything it is heavy, it doesn't breath well in warm weather, and it is much more complicated to set up than a traditional 3-season tent. I bought it under the allure of buying a tent that made me feel like I was ready to climb Denali, but 99% of the time I lugged it on my back during summer and fall backpacking trips. I finally wised up and bought a Big Agnes Copper Spur3. Now for less than half the weight I have tent that is much easier to set up, much roomier, breathes well in the summer, and still has seen and survived heavy wind and moderate snow. Giving this tent 4 stars (would give 5 but for lack of versatility), but would suggest you be honest with yourself about what you are going to use this tent for the majority of the time. For me the BA Copper Spur3 was a much better option and certainly matches the quality of the TNF Mountain 25

These are likely the most comfortable pair of footwear I have ever owned. Have had them now for 2 seasons in everything from hot dessert conditions to trudging through early winter snow carrying 40 pound pack for 4 hours. The boots ooze quality at the level of $400 Allen Edmunds dress shoes. The soles are super grippy when scrambling over rocks and feel "quiet" - a weird description, but it fits. Super supportive without feeling stiff. The goretex liners work like a charm and have not leaked in the slightest even when submitted to prolonged water / snow. Per a couple of the reviews below they are a bit on the heavy side. Also, that gorgeous, out-of the box leather does scuff a bit. But neither of those 2 minor faults is enough to deter me from giving them a solid five-star review. They are spectacular boots!
