Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small

This sandal is super cute and comfortable with good traction for a casual sandal. However, I run between a 7 and 7.5, and I bought these in a 7.5 and they were too small. I recommend going up a half size if you want your toes to not be touching the edge! I bought the 8.0 instead and I expect they will fit wonderfully. The material is comfortable and the shoe is easy to slip into. These have excellent grip and can be paired with almost anything!

I used this jacket in an XS for daily runs around our local lake and love it! The insulation on the chest and back keeps you warm, and the material is good for blocking wind and chill. Little reflective bits on the arms would also make it a good biking jacket.
In a XS, the fit was tighter but still comfortable, I would probably go with a small if I were to use if for backcountry skiing so that it would move with me a bit more. It's also very breathable so it dumps extra heat, great for strenuous winter activities. Not only does it perform wonderfully, but it's very flattering as well! Highly recommended for the runners and backcountry skiers in your life.

This pad is really good for the price point. It packs up about the size of a Nalgene so it's great for backpacking, and the insulation helps keep you warm throughout the night in colder climates. I took it to City of Rocks in October and slept beautifully.
It inflates with about 10 breathes for me, and holds air well. The inflate system was a little tricky and you have to close it up quickly so it doesn't loose too much pressure.
Great for side-sleepers

I've used this stove both car camping and backpacking. It's very easy to use, and boils water in no time. You can save space by putting spices and other ingredients in it while it's in your pack. The 1.7 L is very convenient and can manage more than the 1 L. And you don't need to worry as much about cooking in wind, this stove stands up to it!

The Black Diamond Guide ATC is a must have. Not only are you getting an amazing ATC that's both sturdy and convenient, but you don't need to worry about switching out devices for your multi pitch and single pitch routes. It's my favorite for multi-pitch climbing.When set up properly, the guide ATC will be great for catching lead falls from above, as it essentially works as an auto-locking belay device when set up properly. It also feeds rope very well. It is great for both belaying and rappelling. The reverso is lighter however, so if you're looking to cut down on weight, that one may the the way to go.

I LOVE this little jacket! It's an awesome light layer for short hikes and climbing. It's a very flattering fit. I can wear an XS for a slimmer fit, and a S for a more true to size fit. The kangaroo pocket is awesome for warming hands and storing little essentials. The material is very breathable as well. Zip it all the way up for pocketing your neck from the chill. I want a million of these!

I'm new to flyfishing, and I definitely wore an oversized pair of these. The feet were huge, but that was my own fault for not getting the proper size. They didn't wet out at all, and the pocket kept my essentials secure and protected from any water. The wasitbelt sits nicely above my hips.

Size Purchased: Small

I used this jacket as a rain layer when fly fishing. The sky ended up spitting rain and hail and this jacket kept me dry and warm while packing up. The fit is true to size, I bought a small and had room to layer a little under it. When you get it, it will be totally waterproof, but so keep in mind fabrics tend to wet out the more you use them, so use techwash when washing it to keep it waterproof!
Packs down very small, so it's easy to store in your day pack. Great option for a standard rain coat!

I used this bag for a couple weeks. One of my friends liked it so much that he wanted to sell his and buy this one. The back unzips fully for ease of access to all your gear. Two loops inside the pack allow for easy biner storage, and it even comes with a rope tarp. The outside material is waterproof so you don't have to worry about your gear getting soaked. The hip pads are also very comfortable which can be a rare find in a crag bag. I wish it had some kind of side storage for a waterbottle or climbing shoes, but I that's alright! It's not the easiest for storing both rope and all your other gear, so you kind have to pick and chose. I just carried my rope in my rope bag instead.

A good pack for a weekend long trip. The compartment for the sleeping bag is super handy, and it has just enough extra pockets to fit all your odds and ends. The anti-gravity suspension system saves your back pain, and the straps are easy to adjust to your custom fit. The side compression allows you to compress to the point you need to, and the outside pad/tent straps securely fit your tent or pad to the pack as you hike. It's not going to be a super lightweight pack, so if you're looking to thru hike I'd look elsewhere, but it's durable and perfect for 1-3 day trips!

This Pro Pack is not messing around! I've used this car camping, backpacking, and traveling and I love how it performs. It was enough room inside the main compartment for my sleeping bag, pad, backpacking pillow, clothes, food and camp stove. On the outside area I was able to put my tent on the outside, strap a day pack onto it, and with a couple carbiners the various straps allowed me to put my bear spray, chacos and other things on the outside, along with my trekking poles. The torso length is adjustable which is lovely and I have high hips.
The two issues I had with the pack were 1) not a lot of water bottle holding ability, and 2) the strap for the tent starts and comes back to one point, so it pivots and flaps around, so I had to secure it by other means.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I was really impressed with this pad. I brought it along on a two night backpacking trip for my mom to use. She's 5'7" with a smaller frame and this was perfect for her. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone over 6'0" however.

It rolls up to be about the size of a Nalgene. There are lighter options out there for backpacking and thru-hiking but this one works wonderfully if you're going on anything under a 3 night trip. It doesn't take much to inflate it, and it's lofty so side sleepers will be pleased with it's performance.

This pillow has a soft fabric that is cozy, and it packs down to the size your palm. I recommend not inflating it all the way or else it may be a bit uncomfortable, but it's easy to blow up and pack down. Perfect for backpacking, car camping, or air travel.

I took a couple of these on a recent backpacking trip in northern New Mexico and was so pleased with their quality and light output (while not as strong as most, it gets the job done). I hung one from a tree above our cooking site and another in the tent. With a carabiner you can hang them from anything. I even set one up balanced on my tent pole. They are very lightweight, have three settings for brightness, and all you have to do is leave them in the sun to charge. They fold down flat so they are easy to store.

With this light titanium spork, I can rest at ease knowing that when I lose it, it's not going to create plastic waste. It won't be broken like plastic ones are. The spoon is a good size and the fork part actually works VERY well. The hole at the tail end allows me to keep it attached to my other camping utensil kit. It's my go to for bringing camping, hiking, climbing, to work, you name it.

I used the GSI Outdoors Utility Dry Box to hold my phone and some other electronics on a five day river trip. I kept it at the top of my 30L drybag to pull out when needed. No leaks whatsoever, it kept everything secure. The small is big enough to fit a phone, chargers, small sunscreen, and chapstick. The reason for the 4 stars is because of how rough it was to open the clasps - they had to be forced open and would snap loudly as if they were going to break.

I just got my new Charlie Wallet and I am beyond stoked! For years I've had this huge clunker of a wallet where most of the space was taken up by old business cards, and miscellaneous stuff I just don't use daily. When I moved to a smaller purse, it took up almost the whole thing, and I would have to take out my entire wallet to get to my keys. Then two awesome reps from Herschel came in and I walked away with the Charlie wallet. It is slim and small while remaining stylish, and I can finally fit things in my purse again. It had a pouch for cash and non-card items, and four pockets for cards that can fit 2+ cards in each, so I am able to carry everything I need. The black with the white logo is sleek, durable, and nothing feels like it will be slipping out. I would recommend to anyone looking for a minimalist wallet!
