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

I only have initial impressions about this bowl, but it seems like a huge step up from my old one. I just have to make sure not to melt it in a campfire like my last one. This bowl is great because it is lighter, packs up smaller , but has a larger capacity than the one I used to have. That's a big deal to me since I still struggle at times with packing my bag when I'm out on the trail.

I bought these shorts to wear while training for a half marathon. When I first put these on I wasn't sure what to think about the way they fit. The compression part was fine, but the swishy part seemed to bunch oddly. I decided to keep them and I'm glad I did because they have formed to my shape better after washing and wearing a few times. On me the waist is a little higher than most pants I wear, but they are very comfortable just standing around and when running. The compression part stays put pretty well and if I need to adjust them after running for a while they usually stay after that since sweat makes them stick to my legs more. While I am very satisfied with these shorts, I bought them on sale and would never pay full price for them. Which is no reflection on their quality, I just can't justify to myself spending $55 on a pair of shorts.

This pot has made it through the fire, literally. After running out of fuel on the first night of a trip (poor planning on my part), I was forced to resort to holding this pot over an open campfire. It held up great. No warping and it came surprisingly clean afterwards. I love the handle.

I agree with the review by UMICHENG. I have worn these gloves only a couple times and there is already fraying around the fingers on the inside of the hand. The gloves are warm and water-proof, but when it comes to wearing them while using your hands to do things they wear very easily. I bought these for alpine climbing and they definitely don't stand up very well to handling a rope.

Despite being flimsy I think this is a good, useful spork. When i say flimsy, that has nothing to do with the functionality of the spork. When used normally this spork will last and last. I wouldn't expect it to hold up if it was accidentally sat or stepped on. It is light and it does fold up to a nice, small size. It works well to eat with. The quality isn't the highest, but the price is certainly right.

Honestly, I bought this bag because it was on sale. That did not turn out to be a regrettable decision. My rope fits in it well. It is easy to open and close. I haven't used the tarp yet, but it is a good size. I really like the shoulder straps so it can conveniently be worn as a backpack.

I am very happy with how warm these mittens are. I like the fleece liner that can be taken out on its own. The design of the liner is great because you can fold back the finger part at the top when you need more dexterity without having to take the mittens completely off. Which is good, because the only thing I didn't like is that the finger compartment is a bit large and impedes grabbing onto much of anything. However, I don't think I could have gone with a smaller size because the thumb is quite snug.

I like this top. It is pretty warm and it works in my layering system. I usually wear a dry-fit t-shirt under it. I don't think it's very loose, but it's not skin tight either. I also like the thumb loops because the make it easy to keep the sleeves down as I keep layering up. I have the sulphur yellow and it's not the prettiest color, but it was on sale and I didn't buy it for the color.

This hat is surprisingly warm for how light it is. It really does stop the wind very well. The drawstring is great for holding the ear flaps down when the wind blows. The material is soft and comfortable. I've had the hat for two months and it still looks like new.

It is a little surprising how warm this coat is for how light it is. I have tested it at 18 degrees and was still comfortably warm. I especially love that it has a hood. I also really like the color (navy blue). I ordered a medium and was still able to layer under it.

I love the color and style of this skirt. I really like maxi skirts, but hate the jersey material they are usually made of. This skirt is a very comfortable cotton, and while light, doesn't feel cheap and flimsy at all. I have only worn it a couple times and have already been complimented.
