Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this harness for canyoneering in Zion. It was comfortable for several long repels and to wear for hours at a time going through slot canyons. It rubbed between my legs and made a weird sound when wet, but that's the only complaint. For the price (I got it on sale) it's hard to beat.

I got this for canyoneering, and was very pleased with it. It works great for several situations where you need more or less resistance. It doesn't have the smoothest descent when you have a thick heave rope pulling from below, but I got used to it. Also seems like it will hold up well.

I used these for a long weekend canyoneering in Zion. They were very comfortable and I didn't mind leaving them on between repels. I was a little worried that they wouldn't have much grip as they're a smooth leather, but didn't have any issues with that.
I can't speak much to the longevity of them as I've only used them for the one trip, but no issues so far.

This is a great upgrade from the traditional duffel. I wanted one with the backpack straps as I'm often carrying multiple bags with three young children. This makes it much easier to haul around, and it's quite comfortable. I also love the separate pocket with the expandable liner into the main pocket. I mostly use it for dirty clothes. At the beginning of the trip everything is in the main area, and I can move it to the other area that expands into the main area throughout the trip to keep dirty clothes separate.
The material seems heavy duty, and like it will last a while. It's a great bag.

This is a great cooking system, and boils water amazingly fast. We brought it on a backpacking trip soon after purchasing it, and it worked great. It fits within the cup, which made it easy to pack. Meals were easy with the MiniMo, which gave us more time to enjoy the lake we hiked to. In fact, we liked how quick it was so much, that we also bought a larger butane canister to bring it along when we go car camping. It was great to pull out in the morning and warm our kids up with some hot chocolate. No complaints about this one.
