This, like the title says, is a early review. I have only taken this pack out for a one night trip, covering 23 miles over the course of two days. But what I have done an extreme amount of is packing, unpacking and rearranging all of my gear in the pack So I guess you can say this review is more of a non physical review, but it still will help in questioning your purchase of this pack. Number one, I have a rather larger down bag I take because I have large shoulders, as well as the longer length in the bag because I am rather tall. Inside the stuff sack that Big Agnes sent with the bag, it fit absolutely perfectly in the bottom sleeping bag compartment (as well as gave the bottom of the pack a nice shape). Every single zipper is quality on the pack, of course you need to be careful when closing a tight pocket, but I have had no issues with being worried if the zipper can handle it. I stuffed by jetfoil mini mo, big agnes fly creek ul2 tent, patagonia down jacket, pants, shirts, socks, underwear, camera gear, 5 liters of water in plastic bottles, as well as some random bits of food for the night all in the main compartment and with how I packed and compressed everything down I still only used about half of the compartment. I then added some head lamps to the exterior pockets, toiletry items, camera tripod, . and a phone charger and the pack just consumed everything. The hip belt pockets are not as small as I originally thought they were going to be because of reading reviews, but I can fit my wallet, phone, as well as a GoPro all in ONE POCKET. The support system if gold on this pack, I threw 50 pounds of weight in the pack just for the heck of it, put the pack on and I can honestly say the pack did not feel a pound over 20. Of course, you need to set the straps up properly for your body shape, but once you dial the setup in, you will be skipping down the trail. Buy the pack, you will be stoked on stoked on stoked.

I have always been one for having issues buying an expensive pair of shorts... I thought a lot about buying these and ended up pulling the trigger. Best shorts ever... Used them hiking, bouldering, running, swimming, riding a bike, basically anything and these shorts will not let you down. They dry quickly, feel great and look phenomenal. Only issue I have with these is my waist is narrow and my upper quads are a bit large (I'm a cyclist), so think hard about the size you will want to order. Ordered 2 pairs at the beginning of a 2 week road trip and only wore these shorts. They didn't ever smell a bit as well, get a pair, you won't be disappointed.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is the first tent I have owned, I have always slept in my van but have been wanting a tent for a while. I have researched numerous different ones, but was in Mammoth, Ca at an awesome shop and this immediately caught my eye over the others. The sizes was spacious for 2, pretty light and the price tag won't kill your wallet stack. After spending 9 nights in it, I can still say I am super stoked with this purchase, super easy to set up, even easier to buckle up the rain fly and the included footprint is a nice little addition. My girlfriend and I had plenty of room in it, being able to hang our lantern from the roof and have plenty of storage in pockets on the side. The only cons to this tent in my eyes are, the footprint is a little small for my liking (which is okay because whenever car camping I always bring a8x10 tarp), and I am a little worried about the zippers, they seem to snag a lot on the tent material so I hope the tent doesn't rip. I guess just be careful with the zippers and you should be fine. For sure a great purchase for the money

OVERLY STOKED

Just got back from 2 weeks on the road with zero electrical support, besides this beast. All I can say is it worked flawlessly... All ports worked well, love seeing the input output numbers on the display and it's as quiet as can be. It charged numerous labtops, dslrs, GoPros, phones, speakers, GZ 250 lanterns, flashlights and was only drained to 40 percent of the entire trip. I did run my small Nomad 20 solar pannel as much as I could usually bringing in about 13 watts to bring in some juice, but other than that no other help. Spend the money, it is solid, reliable and down right awesome to have in your gear quiver.

I ordered this bottle after a few friends turned me onto this company. I am one to constantly be drinking water and bring my liter bottles with me everywhere. I live in the Coachella Valley (Souther Cali) where during the summer months it reaches and easy 105+ degrees. The first day I received this bottle, I filled it halfway with ice and topped the bottle off to its brim with water... I then left it in my car, outside, directly in the sun while at school where temperatures reached 116 degrees Fahrenheit. I came back to my car 9 hrs later, not only was the water absolutely cold, the ice cubes hadn't melted in even the slightest bit. Couldn't be happier, buy one.

So I have a great story behind this Zoic shirt, and the blue and plaid one that I also own. I am a XC/AM mountain biker by trade and this company, specifically their collared shirts, have been on my radar the past 2 years. I knew how well they worked from friends, the build is superb, the colors and design are on point, and the people who work for the company are super rad. So why you might ask did I wait so long to finally get one of these shirts? Because, for me, it is very difficult to simply spend 75 dollars on a shirt! But finally, Zoic put these up for sale on their website a couple weeks back and I pulled the trigger ordering one! Lets just say, I have Mountain Biked in it, worn it to school, to dinner, camped in it, hiked in it, semi climbed in it, washed my car in it... Basically anything and everything I do in my daily routine, I have worn this shirt while doing and it has been phenomenal during all of these things. So, when I saw that BackCountry posted the same sale price as Zoic did a few weeks back, I knew I had to order another one, just a different color. Yesterday, I wore this thing in the rain, hiking around, going out to lunch, as well as doing some target practice and the more I wear it, the more I love these shirts. YOU WOULD BE SILLY NOT TO GET ONE!

I have been watching a Hippy Tree shirt for a while now... Simply because I am not one to spend money on new clothes! But finally I cracked down once I saw this and one other shirt made by this company, and it was definitely a great decision. As soon as I pulled the packaging off I knew I would love this shirt, it was super soft, the design was so sick and the fit was absolutely perfect. Can't wait to show this thing off to the world more!

As soon as I pulled these suckers out of the box I was so stoked! They just looked great, the color was exactly as shown, the quality of and feel of the material was sweet, and I love the optional sizing for these pants. I am 6 foot 1 and 155 pounds and ordered the 33 waist size and short inseam. The length is perfect for where I like my pants to fall, and as expected the waist is a bit big (I can wear a 29-30), but my upper legs areas usually feel constricted in smaller waist sizes. Anyway, once I put these on they felt awesome, the pockets are nice, not to high, not to low, they are correct size and the pants material feels great against your leg. The following day I took them upto in to some 30-40 degree wet, rainy, snowy weather to test these things out (and well show them off). They were a bit cold sitting around when temps were hovering around freezing, but they are a pretty fairly thin pant. As soon as your body starts generating the pants warm up and kicks out the chilled feeling on your legs. My friend and I were hiking around, climbing on rocks, jumping around and being basically goons for the entire day... And wow, these pants are so comfortable no matter what awkward or weird position you are in, the fabric stretches giving no feeling of tension or restriction in the pants materials. The best part though, was how the responded to the wet condition... Wether I was sitting down on my butt in the snow, down on my knees taking pictures or making snow angels, I never got wet or had the feeling of these pants retaining any dampness. Once I got up from the ground on one occasion, I felt the pants where my knees are, wet from being on the snow, but completely dry on the interior of the pants! 5 minutes later, once back in my van, the pants had already dried on the exterior! Also, I did get some mud on the knee region of these pants and the mud and gunk, dirt, whatever you get on there just wipes right off! Really hope this helps with anyone trying to buy these pants, and please, if you have any questions feel free to ask! Can't wait to get more pairs of these puppies!

Absolutely love this thing! Super soft, super comfy, super dialed! Not something if you are in gnarly snow or weather or anything, but if you need to keep a little extra warmth against your face on that cool night camping, and especially for the price, this thing is perfect!
Just a little update, I have worn this thing now in the Snow, as well as sleeping in my home and the more I wear it, the more I love it. GET ONE
