Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used it for week-long vacations and weekend getaways and it's been nothing but a champ. It even works great as a carry on (barely over the size limit, but most airlines won't question it)! It's soft and flexible so it can expand, but it has enough structure that it doesn't feel like you're carrying a big amorphous bag. Be aware that there are no internal compartments, so if you're looking for organization, I'd say pick up a set of packing cubes to go along with it. The compression straps are nice, but I would love it if they were a little more centered on the bag, as is they kind of squash the ends of the bag and leave it poofy in the middle. The bag feels well-made and should last me a pretty long time; I haven't been super gentle with it so far and it still looks brand new.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had these boots for two winters now, and I can tell you that they're still just as awesome as they were straight out of the box. They're perfectly warm without being sweaty and help grip the snow and ice (necessary in Wisconsin winters). I have thicker calves, and sometimes when wearing thin socks I get a bit of a rub mark on the back of my ankle, but even that's not a big deal.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I've used it a couple of times so far this spring and it's performed like a champ. Warm, fits well, and doesn't itch even when wet. I even love that it's long enough to not let a draft in when I bend over, and it doesn't ride up much when I walk. I have a long torso and have trouble finding shirts that are long enough, so I'm very glad I found this.

I bought this almost a year ago now, and it is exactly what I was looking for. Lightweight but warm, windproof, water resistant, it's perfect for everything from cold hikes to motorcycle rides. I'm extremely happy with this jacket, and also glad I tried it on in the store to check for sizing. I'm usually an XS in North Face jackets, but I had to order a medium on this one. Just something to watch out for.

Once I got the right size, there were no other complaints.
