These are cute, stretchy, and stylish! The fit doesn't work perfectly for my body type (hourglass) but I never wear them without a long shirt or tunic top, so it hasn't been an issue. I'm disappointed that they've piled so much, but it's not something a simple pile shaver can't fix.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My purpose for purchasing this sleeping bag was to be a filed guide in the Utah desert in the winter and spring. There were a few nights that it got below 20, but I was still toasty. If you find yourself between the zipper and the zipper protector you will definitely catch a draft, which sucks, but I don't think there's anything that could fix that issue. This fit well in a tarp, primitive pack as well as my 55L Deuter Pack. I like to sprawl, and the mummy cut of this obviously didn't allow that. It also didn't allow room for my Chiweenie to snuggle up in my sleeping bag. It does it's job, and it does its job well.

I actually prefer a half buff over a full buff. It's great as a hair band, face protector, and even as a strainer for purified water. I have a few of these and cycle through as the colors match my outfits!

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I purchased this as a wedding gift for a friend of mine. I chose Pendleton for the quality, longevity, and fabric. The style was a major plus! She's loved snuggling up with this blanket inside, outside, and on road trips.

This worked perfect for me to put my changes of clothes and layers in for week long backpacking trips. It's rolled out of our tarp shelter a few times in the rain, and my clothes were dry (maybe cold) the next morning. The compression feature especially came in handy when packing up and minimizing space used. Very satisfied with this piece of gear!

This quickly became my favorite layer this spring and summer working in the desert. It provided great sun protection, great comfort, and held up well on it's 8 work day stints. I was very excited to (smell) that it didn't retain stink. I usually wear a size medium, and a medium fit well without being too tight or too loose.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When I first started hiking my husband introduced the MOAB to me because it's what he used in the military. I first purchased the low tops and loved the way they fit my wide toe box foot. As a field guide my job required a boot that covers the ankle, and it made sense to get a waterproof boot due to unpredictable Utah desert weather. This boot isn't a summer boot, by any means, but lets my foot breathe within reason.
They did hold up well in the rain, but I seriously, seriously put them to the test. While walking 5 miles on a muddy road in the pouring rain, my toes did end up wet. The rest of my foot stayed dry.
This is the best compromise for a waterproof, yet breathable boot. I will have a hard time going with any other style or brand.

This fleece is WARM, and it makes everyone want to give me a hug, so there's that...
This was the perfect layer under my Torentshell this winter working in the desert. At night it made the perfect pillow while cuddled up in my sleeping bag. I usually wear a size medium and a medium fit perfectly. Due to the fluff I had to size up on my shell.
The only downside is it doesn't repel coals flying from the fire. I stitched up the burn hole from the inside and you can't even tell it happened!

I bought this for my husband before he went to study abroad in the Middle East because he needed something with a collar and sun protection, but not something that would leave him in a big sweaty puddle. He (okay, I ) picked this one over other similar sun shirts because of the tapered mid section. The Arc'teryx Skyline Shirt doesn't make him look boxy, only athletic. They're his favorite to stay classy yet casual.

I can't offer that last start because of how much they've piled up in the few short months he's owned them (Black and Hectate Blue). It's not something that the pile shaver I got from Amazon can't fix, but still disappointing.

This dress makes me feel so good about myself! The "heathered" design of the dress hides any cellulite that may try to show itself due to the tightness of the dress. I've paired it with a sweater or blazer for a chilly day. After close to 10 wears, I have yet to notice any piling!

I don't know what's keeping me from giving that last star, I guess I favor other dresses that have a little more to it over this one.

I tend to only buy Merrell hiking boots because the shape of their boots fits my foot perfectly. I have a regular/ flat-ish foot with a slightly wider than average toe box. I have the Moab low tops for summer hiking, but needed something with a little more support and some GoreTex to keep my feet dry. These will be perfect. They were extremely comfortable right out of the box and I can't wait to use these after the snow melts a bit in the desert. In the meantime, I'll be wearing my Merrell Capra Glacial Ice+ Mid Waterproof Boots which are fleece lined and warm for the winter.

I've only gotten the opportunity to use these twice so far this season, but comparing them to my old Burton Moto's.... they're amazing. The boa technology is super convenient, I never had any issue with the top or bottom being uncomfortably tight or loose. The toe is more pointed and a little less profile, so I had to adjust my binding to make that strap a little tighter.
Heads up for sizing: I usually wear a women's 10, I fit in the men's 9.5 comfortably. The 9 had my toes in pain.

I was really excited to get these boots as I'd seen them on someone else and loved them. Unfortunately, these fall under that annoying category of " looks cuter in the smaller size rather than the larger sizes". I ordered a size 10 and they fit me perfectly, but they just weren't as cute as I remembered them being.
