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

As a petite female finding a PFD I don't feel like I am swimming in is quite a challenge. I loved the Astral YTV from the moment I tried it on. The minimal design with large arm openings makes this vest super comfy and allows for a wide range of motion. From rowing to fishing, the lightweight and durable design make it ideal for any aquatic adventure. The only downside (as others have mentioned) is the lack of storage space. While you may be able to fit a small tube of sunscreen or chapstick, there's not much room for anything else. At 5'1" and 115 lbs I find the S/M size fits great when cinched down. The "boob shelf" as it's being called makes a great fit even better as there is no uncomfortable squishing or rearranging needed. The Eggplant color is beautiful and the interior pattern design is the cherry on top. This is a quality PFD that I highly recommend!

The clutch is being used on a Sony full frame and is great for those that don't want to use a camera sling. The strap helps take some weight off the grip hand when using telephoto lenses. The anchor system that attaches the strap to the camera is easy to use and provides a secure fit. The clutch doesn't create extra bulk or clutter like slings can when being stored in a camera bag. The clutch works great when used with the Peak Design capture device.

While the dimensions clearly show this chair is on the large side I was still surprised when I saw it in person. I was looking for a compact chair for car camping, outdoor concerts, and downtime at the crag. This chair works great but it is definitely not small or compact. I am a petite sized human so really didn't need something so big! If you are not concerned with size or have a larger asset this chair may be perfect for you!

I got this bag for me and my boyfriend's sport climbing gear. We can fit our coiled 70 meter rope, both harnesses, 2 chalk bags, 12 quick draws, 2 carabiners with belay devices, a basic anchoring system, and our climbing shoes. The zippered top pocket can fit snacks, phone, keys, and other small personal items. The backpack straps are cleverly designed so that they can be converted to a duffle style carry if desired. My only minor complaint is the lack of a sternum strap and waist belt that would be nice for load bearing on longer approaches.

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 120 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I bought this as a gift for my mom who lives in Colorado and needed a warm winter jacket. With broad shoulders, the medium fits perfectly with sufficient room to layer on extra cold days. She loves the weight of the jacket which still keeps her warm without the extra bulk. Soft yet durable, she wears this jacket everywhere!

Size Purchased: Small

I was looking for a modern parka to keep warm in cold winter months and fell in love with the Faith Down Jacket. This jacket has kept me warm without looking like the Michelin man. It has a more modern cut/slimmer fit with a stylish baffle design that doesn't sacrifice warmth. I got a size small that fits nicely with room to layer for those really frigid nights. The extra small would have been more form fitting, but would not have had room for layers. Never want to take this jacket off!
