I bought 2 pairs of these shorts with a little larger waist than I wear (since the last carhartts I bought ran a little small (or maybe that is my waist size) and these are some of the most comfy carhartt shorts I have ever worn. I bought these shorts to replace some of my very worn out work shorts.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought these to replace my old presta valve tubes after having the valves break on me (not this brand of tube). Just about a couple weeks later after buying these tubes, I came out to ride my bike and discovered that I had put the front tire on top of a nail (half-inch length). I have nothing bad to say about these tubes; these work good. The back tube has been holding since I pumped it up. The only other thing I will say is to get a presta to schraeder converter if wanting to put any tire goop in.

I bought these shoes to replace my other shoes that had worn down to the point that walking in the snow was like having sponges on my feet.
After some time of research, I settled on these shoes due to the fact that (unfortunately) most of the shoes on this site don't come in wide. (I had read reviews on the main Chaco site (no reviews of this shoe on Backcountry yet (before time of purchase)) that most of the Chaco shoes had a wide "toe box"). I am glad with my purchase as these are comfortable shoes (and they are waterproof! :) ).
I use these shoes for all around wearing (haven't tested hiking yet).

This kit is good for turning the droms into normal hydration bags. With this kit and the drom bag, I no longer need to carry my water in 2 three liter bottles in my truck (and can use the space for other things).
The bite valve takes a little getting used to, but I got the hang of it (hydration pack bite valves seem a little less stiff). There is a "garden hose" taste, but that doesn't bother me (don't know if it is the drom bag or the hose). Too bad these aren't included with the drom bags.

I have now used this bag on a few of my trips (mostly driving). The bag has never leaked once and it had lost the garden hose taste upon second use.
On one of my trips (real hot day), I noticed this bag kept the ice and water in it cold for a few hours (in a hot truck cab with windows up and the bag was in the shady part of the vehicle).
This bag is kinda gets heavy on long hikes (no complaints though).

I think I might consider getting a smaller bag and a couple of larger bags as these bags are rather handy.

I bought the 20L stuff sack after having an oversized stuff sack for a few years. I tend to stuff my sleeping bags into the bags tightly (my sleeping bag is closer to fitting in a 22L bag instead). The only thing I wish this had is a cover flap around the drawstring area.
The next thing on the list is to see how all my stuff fits into my truck box....
