Familiarity: I've used it several times

OK, so I have two breathable raincoats for hiking and fishing out in Oregon--so I have a bit of experience with the rain--that lost their mojo after being put through the washing machine after getting them completely dirty. One is a Columbia OmniDry and the other is a Red Ledge something. I learned that you don't put your breathable raingear in the washer, as the laundry soap and stuff bonds with the breathable waterproofing! Once that happens, water soaks through and you're totally wet. And of course, I learned this lesson while out steelhead fishing in the rain for a few hours, so it was a cold and wet day with ineffective raingear. Anyway, the Nikwax tech wash followed by the wash-in restored my gear's mojo! I've worn it several times in the rain, but today was a particularly complete soaker of a rainy day and I was out in it for several hours, and the seams and breathable spots held up and I stayed dry. This Nikwax stuff worked and I've also shared my story with my friends, too. Definitely a better product than that spray-on crap! :)

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

This bag is pretty spacious--and I only did the L. It looks pretty cool and it feels well made. I stuffed it full of gear and had room to spare. The zippers also seem pretty high quality compared to other bags. I anticipate I'll get a lot of use out of this one!

I took this bag on a journey through several airports and there were some definite pros and cons. Pros: spacious and crunches down pretty well to fit in the overhead compartment or under the seat on the airplane. There are some handy backpack straps, which lets you get your hands free. The Cons were that the backpack straps were a little clumsy and uncomfortable--to be fair, this is a duffle bag with backpack straps, not a backpack--and if you extend the straps into a duffle, they work properly. Despite these Cons, I'm overall pretty happy with the purchase and rating a 4 stars.
