Agree with the other posts, the shape is a bit odd, but it works well! The plastic is light and flexible, expands on the sides when full but flattens when empty. Valve is smooth, and works well when the tank is laying on its side. You can’t beat the price, a great alternative to the disposable plastic just jugs for long car trips and camping adventures.

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

I've been looking for a scoop neck wool tank for quite some time. Something with tank straps to conceal bra straps rather than a racer back. Love the wool properties, and the Icebreaker quality is unmatched. I purchased the small, though am typically where a medium and found the arm holes to be a bit small. I'm keeping it, and ordering a second because I love it that much! The Fawn Heather is just as pictured.

I'm digging this piece, it's just as I hoped it would be. Purchased a Medium and it fits super well - feminine in the neck, chest and shoulders, with a little added space around the hips. More of tunic fit for sure. And the wind river plaid is a true flannel material, soft, a bit stiff, and the red and blue color is exactly as pictured! The tailored gray has a slight peach stripe running through. - Bought two, that's how much I love it!

Put this tent to the test for the first time this past weekend, casual two nighter, and was super pleased with the over all design, architecture and material usage.

Set up was straight forward, the seams of the fly follow the tent pole structure. The single pole with hub configuration was a little tricky getting fitted to the small metal grommets at each corner, but held very well. A couple of internal Velcro straps kept everything aligned. The guy points on the ten body and at each corner utilize a thin, reflective cording to cut weight yet hold firm on some super nice MSR Needle Stakes. Footprint is sold separately and it all packs up nicely and easily into a burrito roll with compression straps - clutch.

Internal height at the head worked for two tall-ish people sitting up, length was more than generous for additional gear. Width at the head is achieved with a cross pole, and the reviewer below is correct, rear corners need to be staked down or tied out, but a triangle construction provides a bit of extra internal space when you do so, about 4 inches of height at the base. Two standard pads fit well. The double D doors are convenient, dual vestibules also convenient and roomy enough for shoes, pack, even a quick morning jetboil. There's a single pocket inside and a few tabs for hanging items, honestly in a UL tent this is what I would expect for organization. The bathtub base only reaffirms MSR's attention to detail and experience building tents.

One additional highlight, there was little to no condensation transfer to the mesh first thing that first morning, temps dipped into the high 30s. This likely due to adequate space between the mesh body and fly - nothing worse than cold water droplets when waking up. The mesh and zipper quality is definitely superior to most tents on the market, worked with one hand, with ease.

Single complain, I would love two internal body and fly connection points on the rear of the tent to open up the interior just slightly. Time to really test it in the elements.

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

Double sleeping bag systems always seemed like a great idea, but my husband and I have been so stuck in our ways with two bags that zip together and a layers of pads (to prevent the inevitable crevasse and cold spots), that I never thought we'd convert. Well, after just one night summer camping in the Uintas, we're into to. In his words "this system is money".

Couple of features I really dig about the pad system, it fits two 20" wide pads (so we could use what we have), there's main sleeve and then two individual sleeve straps to keep the pads in their place and from over lapping in the night. There's also a corner strap to keep the pad within the sleeve and from working it's way out in the night. There's a little more play on the length but 72" seemed just right. Along the sides of the pad sleeve, there's a more stretchy gusset of fabric to accommodate a thicker pad as well. We were using a rectangular Therm-a-rest NeoAir Allseason and an Exped Syn Mat. Basically felt like we were at home on a mattress. There's no insulation on the back of the bag, so you'll want a warm pad (high R value or insulation) to keep you warm.

The bag is rated to 30 degrees, filled with synthetic which is ideal for inevitable summer rain storms, damp days and easy care. We were toasty well into the low 40s. Each person has their own pillow pocket within the bag and hood for added warm. Zipper on either side, draw cord around the neck. Seriously, we're stoked on this bag.

I've used the soft platy bottles for years, they're ideal for packing light but porting a bunch of water. I'm digging the new duo lock system. The cap is snug and nicely threaded for tight closure, and a larger opening for filling up. The drinking spout is a bit smaller and locking mechanism is easy to use. I'm enjoying the attached clip as well, great for river trips or scenarios where you just need to keep everything connected.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 150 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

Smooth, stretchy, good layer for chillier rides, t-shirt like knit, dries quick and ultra comfortable to ride in. Slightly belled sleeves are great for pads, good length, and very cute, flattering fit. Purchased a Medium in the Baxton print and it's exactly as pictured. Unfortunately my hydration pack rubbing against the shirt caused a bit of pilling, but overall, good jersey.

So I really, really wanted to love this skirt, but ended up returning it. I didn't read the fine print. The side slit is more of a flap across the front that opens fully and then there's a short mini skirt underneath. Could be great for the right figure, but not for me. I was looking for a full, long skirt for breezy summertime use.

I ordered a size 6, I have a 27" waist with wider hips and this silhouette usually works just fine in a smaller size. I am also 5' 8" so don't usually have an issue with length. The waist and hips were just right, however this would be about 2" too long to wear with flat sandals. The color is exactly as pictured.

Wanted to love this. The fabric is really nice, tank is high quality and I love a racer back for summer. Unfortunately the gathering at the bottom was just a bit snug for me in a size medium and I wasn't pleased with how it looked. Otherwise, fits true to size in the top, loose in the waist.
