Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I have used this jacket on various rivers where it's been anything from a light sprinkle to a steady rain. It's kept me dry every single time. It's a great little jacket, that I pack in my Patagonia sling pack. It doesn't take up that much room, and doesn't add too much bulk or weight to my sling pack. The pockets are perfect to go the minimalist route and throw some boxes in them.

I have a few friends that dislike the length, but I've found it to be perfect with waders. My only dislike about the jacket is the lack of an attachment point for a net. While I have a pack, it's not an issue, but sometimes it's nice to leave it all behind and go lightweight.

I picked this up to replace an older backpacking tent, and I needed a larger one now that my girlfriend goes with me. This tent is amazing, no other way to put it. This tent fits my girlfriend and I, and my two lab mixes perfectly. The only issue I've had with this is a little bit of moisture build up under the fly some nights.

The Simms Taco Bag is amazing! I got tired of the back of my vehicle getting dirty with rocks, muddy, and the run off water from throwing stuff in the back for the quick drive home. Even with an all weather, big hard rubber tray/mat in the back, it was still a pain to clean. Enter the Simms Taco Bag... now I have something to stand on while taking my waders off, that makes it easy to keep the booties clean. Once I take my boots and waders off, everything zips up in the bag with plenty of room to spare. I can fit my size L waders, and size 12 boots in here with plenty of room to spare. It is definitely worth the investment!

I've tried numerous saddles, probably upwards of 10-15 from the top saddle companies. They would all be alright until mile 15+, then I had issues getting comfortable. Once that time came, I'd sit and try and move back and forth on the saddle, trying to find the sweet spot. It made me start to hate road bikes, since I came from BMX and mountain.

Then came the Lite 209. This saddle was the answer to everything I was looking for. I've put hundreds of miles on mine, and it fits like a glove. I don't even notice it at all anymore. My rides use to be focused on my sit bones and the discomfort there, wiggling around for those few minutes of comfort again. With this saddle, that's all gone. The unique design allows me to sit in the same spot effortlessly, and it's always in the sweet spot of the saddle.

Hands down the best saddle I've ever ridden. It's a little more than some of the other options I've tried, but the health and comfort benefits of it are well worth the price.
