A great product from Haglofs.
I am a size 42 jacket and this vest is on the slimmer side but :) it holds everything in place. Sizing up is worn over something other than a base layer could be a good option. But it does perfectly well what it is meant for. Warm, comfy and slim fighting would well define this product. And of course as per all Haglofs products, extremely high quality .

I have just got these to replace an Accrue SL non leather version. Same great fit. Comparable width and toe box, but a much better lacing system. The problem on the fabric SL is that if one tightens the laces normally, not saying too much by the way, the fabric can just tear up. The leather version has a better fabric support around laces and such a problem seems less probable. At least this one has withhold its first day of life with me. I also have the SL GTX version and it might just the better of all of the Accrue line up. If a rugged shoe is needed, the GTX is one step above but my leather SL are great shoes also. By the way as per other Accrux, sizing up half a point is the way to go for great confort and support. Same size is on the tighter side of things and makes a slim shorter shoe .

HIghly compressible, warm and confortable sleeping bag for low 40 temperature. Comes with a great bag for storage to maintain fluffyness and a nice travel bag for backpacking. Once compressed no bigger than a Nalgene bottle. Some have complained that it is a tight fitting bag. Well, for a 200 lbs, 6 feet tall, 42 inches jacket ,36 waist guy, it is a very confortable, well proportioned bag on the snugger head of the spectrum. It fits on the longer head of spectrum as well so for the tall, slim to average guy, this is a bag one should consider as a first choice for a three earlier seasons bag. Nice finish, conrtable, warm and light as feather with high compressibility into the thinniest of packaging.Be aware of such and you will love that bag. If you`re bigger, and that is big :), look for something else.

This is a great boot, with incredible support, a tight fit and confortable toe box. But for those with narrow feet more specifically. Anybody with more than average width of their feet, this might not be the best option. I also have a Lowa Valbona boot which would suit larger feet much better, hence why I ordered the Arcteryx. Buy and enjoy but be aware that you will be in a tighter fit... Even one half size bigger won't change that situation

Ok, continuing on the prior evaluation. It still is big no question, but with my Alps sleeping pad, oh what a confortable sleep one is in. Still keep in mind that this thing is huge ... really huge. Choose wisely other option if one needs a backpack bag as this would fill half of my Osprey Xenith 105...

Size wise this is almost like a huge building. The two vestibule are well sized, the one with a double zipper access is really ingenous and it is just too bad the other one does not have the same design. Well built, extremely well priced and truly capable of withstanding the hardest elements, as my night stay under winds of 60 mph had barely any impact on the tent, and the rain that came with it never pass through the fabric. The footprint makes the tent even better and is a must in my book. Alps did a truly surprising tent with this model. Ok it is not the lightest, the size in the bag is significant, but it is worth repackging it in as one can reduce the length by about 3 inches, a worthy gesture. The spikes are of nice quality compared to my Mystique 2.0 I have from the same company. Worth every penny and extremely well built. Buy without hesitation if one needs a great tent on a tighter budget. One cannot be disappointed here.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have the Jon Olsen Pro in a size 11 and this fits a little bigger. An incredibly warm glove, sometimes even too warm. Put it through minus 20 Celcius temperatures and this thing is just incredible. And the leather has interesting treatment to it so don`t worry if they are white ... They will stay that way for a long, long time

42 long 200lbs, 6 footer. All of me fits in but brace yoursef for a tighter fit.
Light and comfy, compressable. A great end spring summer jacket on its own.
One layer at best, maybe a second light one could fit. But I do have other options on cooler days.

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

Unless you have a minivan to fit it in, this bag is car camping only. Impossible to compress at all. But looks comfy for sure. The bag you kept at home for power outage but that one DO NOT BUY for any camping at all. As an example this fills my Osprey Xenith 105 ( yes 105 liters ) amost completely. But once you are fully aware of its limitation, an overall comfy bag no question here

A great bag , good warmth (mid 40, 5 -7 celcius) . A liner does help as well might I say. Good size not too tight nor big. Incredible compressibility unlike many other Alps sleeping bags ( Crescent Lake as an example). This a bag that fits with your tent, within a 50L bag without issues. Would buy a second if they come back
