Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small

The gloves come small even going off of the size chart that is provided. They have since stretched out, but still seem a little small. I took the gloves ice climbing and used them to rappel and belay and they both stood up to the abuse and kept my hands warm. While backcountry skiing in high winds, my hands were still warm. The waterproof coating on the gloves still works for me even after using them during ice climbing. The only downside to these gloves is that they are not full gauntlet. One thing that would be wonderful is to have a little more material to extend up the forearms with a drawstring at the end to tighten them down. While the current material keeps the majority of the moisture out, i noticed there was some cold air flowing into the gloves while skiing. I tried to put the gauntlet material under my jacket, but it was too big. A drawstring in the end of the gloves would take care of the airflow issue and make the gloves even warmer, as well as better for deep snow.

I got the screw-gate version to use for setting up anchors. The action of the screw-gate is really smooth, which combined with the nice anondized finish makes this a really nice feeling carabiner. It's also quite light for its size. I really like the continuous curve that this has, giving plenty of room for tying a clove hitch. It seems lighter and smoother compared to a BD RockLock, which is normally what I use. The anondized finish did wear away very quickly with rope moving through it, but that is to be expected with any carabiner like this. I also noticed that the screw gate doesn't travel quite as far with each flick of the finger as a RockLock does, meaning that it takes a little longer to open and close this one. It's very smooth, but it seems to have a little more resistance in the threads. Overall, it's a solid locking carabiner that's smoother and lighter than a BD RockLock, but not quite as easy to open and close.

This is a great portable speaker that gets loud and won't break if you drop it. I got it to use at work, where there's noise all around me, and I never have to get even close to full volume. With background noise, most music sounds pretty darn good. The integrated subwoofer makes the whole thing vibrate, so the sound can change based on what type of surface it is set on. If it's quiet and you can really listen to the sound, certain music does start to distort once you start pumping up the volume, as others have said. However, I don't think this should be much of an issue if you're using it while at a jobsite, biking, hanging out with a group of people, or whatever you got this speaker for. Just don't expect fantastic sound at high volumes if you just want to sit down and listen to music.
