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

Bought this for my Dad, he is doing a bike packing trip around Lake Eerie and needed a sleeping pad. I have been impressed with all big agnes sleeping pads and the comfort they have in being thicker. Also they tend to be more durable than the Therm-a--rest, in which the nozzles always seem to develop a leak that cannot be patched. Will be BA for lyfe.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great boots that are comfortable and have a nice large toe box. I am a snowboarder by trade, but have picked up some skis to cut through the boredom in this lack luster winter in Utah. The boots are very warm and I never get cold feet with just one light sock layer. The only downside is adjusting the buckle and the position on the boot. They are difficult to adjust on the fly and can be difficult to push down as they are past the midpoint on the boot.

This little kit has everything you need to wax and set your edges. Not overly impressed with the edge setter, but the iron and scrapers do the trick. Also comes with great tools to remove burs in edges from all that tree whacking that I do. It only comes with wax for about 2 good waxes, so I would recommend buying some additional blocks. Hopefully never have to use the P-tex

I had the scout gloves and loved them so I gave these bad boys a try. These are warmer than their glove counterpart, which for the current conditions this year is actually not a plus. However, for those bitter cold, cloudy days these are perfect. I maybe one of the few cheerleaders for synthetic and truly dislike leather. I think that the synthetic provides a lighter weight feel, if properly maintained more waterproof, and to me much warmer.

This is not a cashmere sweater. It is old school scratchy wool that you need a nice long sleeve undershirt. As advertised this thing is warm and if you plan on staying most of the day in the office or indoors this maybe a little too warm for you.
