Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Topo combo has everything you need to get out on the river for the first time. It was my first fly rod--I still use it as a backup and recommend it to anyone just getting into the sport.

This combo makes getting out on the water easier, and a beginner doesn't have to worry about buying line and leader and tippet, and all the other small bits of equipment that can make your first fly rod purchase stressful. The nippers, flies, and small fly box are a great addition.

The rod is excellent for the price. The reel also works well but is the first part of the setup that I replaced after about two years.

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

My girlfriend saw this pack on the State of Gold story and loved the look of it. I bought it for her and she likes everything about it, not just how it looks. Gregory Packs are some of the most comfortable packs out there, and they have all the features you'd want without any weird ones that get in the way.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these for both cold weather fly fishing and ice fishing and am loving them so far. They fit well and allow for a good amount of dexterity, unlike many similar gloves out there. The only con so far is that they are a bit difficult to get on and off, as the cuff is pretty tight.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Coming from stiff, aggressive boots, I opted for the Cochise as an option that seemed to be a bit more comfortable and flexible. I'm not disappointed in my decision.

They hurt a bit out of the box but as soon as I heat formed the liners they got to feeling as if I'd been riding them for years.

The hike/ski switch is easy and intuitive, unlike some others I've seen.

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

I don't have much to compare these to, as I'm new to cross country skiing, but my initial impression is that I'm impressed by the amount of comfort they offer. The inside is soft and plush, and they offer enough support without being super rigid.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used a friend's GSI cookset on a camping trip last fall and loved it so much that I bought this as a Christmas gift for my girlfriend. She loves it, and it will get tons of use for many years to come. I've used many different self-contained cooksets in the past and this is by far the best, most intuitive design. It's completely self-contained and makes packing for trips so much easier.
