Perfect
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: 2

*Super Cute
*Stretchy
*Strong
*Must Have
*Size Down

These are good for anything and everything. If you need a really thin pant, for the 90+ degree temps, then look at the Sage. Otherwise, they are perfect.

Perfect Stretch
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: 28

The stretch on these is really comfortable. The fit is also good. I'd say they run a little small, since I easily could have kept the 27.. The 28 was better for my thicker thighs, but the 27 was better on the waist. Hard to visually see a huge difference on the waist, so I kept the 28.

I'm 5'8, so definitely a 50's flood look, on me. If you're short, then these should look like a normal length.

True Waist: 27
Hip bones: 33
Seat: 38

Tall Drink of Water
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This bike EATS ROCKS! It's super fun, if love cruising over rocks with ease. I've demoed a lot of different bike profiles. I really like the climb, so I expected to get a climbing bike. But, I could never get my mind off the 27.5+ tires, since they are so much fun and easy. So, I decided to ride them this year and it's been nothing but smiles.

It's definitely a playful bike, and the components are effortless. I will always support putting money in components, and they really effect your over all game.

This really is for crushing up rocks on the down hill, with a soft ride uphill. My photo doesn't do this bike justice, but it's all I have, right now. These tires are definitely not ideal for a single track. But, who cares?! It will go anywhere.

Also, I feel fine, on the uphill, which is important to me because I love to climb. So, it's really been a good balance of everything. I also like that I can put 29 in wheels on this, if I want to. So, this bike feels like so much FREEDOM!

These are perfect. Get them.

This pant is really durable, so you can get down and dirty with no regrets. These aren't too thick for summer hiking and climbing. But, they are not the thinnest summer pant that prAna offers. So, also get the Sage Convertible Pant, if you need a super hot-weather pant.

For sizing, they will be the same as the Kara pant. So, I'm typically a size 4, but in these I am a 2. They fit well, and stay in place.

These have a ton of stretch, for movement, but don't lose their shape. Good for climbing, hiking, and being comfortable. One of my buttons came off, and prAna shipped me 2 new ones in a matter of days. Sweet!!!

I have the 1L pot. I would like the 1.8L. Seems like I'm making tea and coffee for everyone, so a bigger pot would have worked will for me.

This is the best in the wind, for sure! So, if you're in mountain or on peaks, this is a must. Also, I recommend getting their fuel if you can. It does burner cleaner and more efficiently, and faster.

This doesn't have an igniter switch, like my minimo. But, I always take lighters, so it's not a real issue.

I do wish they would make an attachment to use a frying pan. Maybe next year.

This is fast little toughie! It will boil your water in minutes, even inthe wind. If you find yourself if the worst winds, the MSR Windburner is more efficient.

But, this has the igniter switch, which is rad. I haven't used it enough to know how long it last be fore malfunctioning or getting dirt trapped. Maybe never?!?!

Get the Sumo, if you're cooking for a crew. For 2 people, the mini mo is perfect.

Sweet set up.

I got this with their water bottle. It was really easy to use. I did get a little reusable coffee filter, though. that way I could catch some of the big stuff, since the water we had was really silty with lots of small life forms. So...if you have that kind of water, take something to filter first. Then, you can use this to kill the viruses and bacteria.

Great beginner shoe.
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 135 lbs

This was my first shoe. So, I got it for my sister, who is new to climbing. she did not complain once, so I'd call that a success.

This shoe performs very well, and will get anyone from a beginner to the intermediate stage.

I size these to my hiking boot size, and it was great. but, my feet are conditioned. If you are new, size up 1/2 a size. My sister wears size 9 hiking shoes, but can sometimes be an 8.5. The size nine was good for her.

I demoed this on a trip in the desert. It got a little chilly, but I haven't tested this to the max temp. But, it was really warm during the chilly desert night. It packs up small and easily.

The straps on the back secure it to your sleeping bag. This is a very awesome feature. I would not hesitate to recommend this bag for summer backpacking.
