Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 175 lbs
Size Purchased: 32 waist

Super comfortable, quick-drying shorts that run a shade small, especially if you tumble dry (there's a modest amount of shrinkage). For comparisons, I'm 6'1", 175 lbs with a 31- 32 in waist and wear 32's: they fit well (and I have 5 pairs of the 10" Ramblers.) The shorts have a "button-able" internal reinforcement across the fly (I never use it, seems superfluous...) While I love the outside mobile phone pocket, it tends to snag on drawer handles. Not a deal breaker, but something to be aware of... Last, I've beat on these (worked, played and hiked in 'em) and they've held up; pretty durable.

The North Face Microbyte Backpack is an excellent alternative to the big, bulky backpack frequently seen on the backs of students and business people. My MacBook Air fits perfectly in the laptop sleeve with more than enough room to fit a small gear bag (~4"x6"), folders, papers,etc. The pack also has 9 internal sleeves; great places to stash pens, business cards, USB's, sunglasses, keys: all the stuff that typically gets lost at the bottom of a backpack.
Because the pack is small, it's light. While you can carry everything you need, it won't fit everything you own. And that's a good thing...

The North Face Denali vest is a good piece of backcountry gear. It's warm but runs large and weighs more than I had anticipated. The vest is zipper-compatible with the North Face Summit Series shells. However, zipping the vest into the shell disallows the use of the powder skirt. Last, the combination of wearing the vest and a shell provides bullet-proof protection from the very cold outdoor conditions. (Using the vest and shell, I snowboarded comfortably last week in New Hampshire even with wind chills hovering around -40F.)
