Fit: Runs small

These tees have some awesome colors and look great. However, they definitely run small but a size up seemed to do the trick, although it's still not the best fit dimension-wise. The durability is also a bit questionable - upon closer look the seems are somewhat irregular and started to fray on the first day I had it on. It's a tee shirt though, right? It feels good, looks good, and if it doesn't last forever that's fine with me.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Wanted to take my girlfriend climbing so I got her this package - she said: "This Black Diamond Primrose Package has everything you need as a beginner climber. The harness fits comfortably around the waist and legs with easy adjustments. The ATC is easy to use and learn from. I would definitely suggest purchasing a package like this as a beginner climber vs. the individual pieces. In my opinion, Black Diamond has the best climbing options and fit well!"

Scooped a pair of these up for my girlfriend and she says: "I am an intermediate climber that got into the sport last summer and these shoes have given me the confidence in my ability. These Evolv Kira Climbing Shoe are extremely tight and leave indents on my feet but that is how climbing shoes are supposed to fit (I think?). The soles have an amazing grip on all sorts of rock types so you can really wedge into cracks. I tried the lace up La Sportiva climbing shoes because they were overall more comfortable but took too much time to take off when I was done climbing. I'm glad I made the trade-off"

Overall, these Keen Durand Mid Waterproof Hiking Boots have served me well on lengthy backpacking trips through muddy canyons and sandy washes alike. As many of the other reviews already mentioned, they do run wide but a thicker hiking sock did the trick for me. I don't have the strongest ankles so I was definitely looking for a taller boot that would keep me from twisting anything on rocky terrain. These boots are pretty bulky and heavy which is the price I paid for stability and control.

I was looking for a quality fanny pack primarily for cross country skiing and shorter hikes and this Patagonia lightweight travel mini hip pack fit the bill perfectly. The main drawback with this pack is that it doesn't hold a full sized water bottle so I had to purchase a .5L collapsible water bottle - no big deal. I was debating getting the larger pack so it could hold more water but at that point I would just use my lightweight backpack. The color is so bright and fun that I will use it when I attend concerts or any other event where I want to be hands-free.

When searching for this duffel, I had two necessary criteria but what I got was so much more. First, it had to have wheels - carrying my bag through the airports was not an option. The Black Hole Wheels are durable, sturdy and roll over everything with ease. Second, it must fit and be easy to lift in the overhead container. There are multiple grip handles for this exact purpose and the rolling handle goes down seamlessly. Overall, I love this bag however I do which the rolling handle had two settings where you could make it half the size for when you want to keep it closer to your body.

Update to my original review:
Even though this speaker started off great, it has now become glitchy. I have not been able to get it to turn off which means every time I use it I have to let it die a slow death until I can re-charge it again. The controls have also become unreliable, sometimes working, other times not. I'm sending it back to GZ to see what they can do for me, but I'm probably going to end up buying a different (probably cheaper) speaker from a different company that I know will be reliable.

After hemming and hawing over which speakers to get, I was drawn to these because of the solar panel and I'm very impressed. They put out a great sound and fill up my entire house when turned up to full blast. The solar charging keeps it going, especially here in sunny Utah. Overall I love these speakers and may even get another set to link up!

I purchased these along with my reactor stove and they are great accessories to add into the camp bin. Although I probably wouldn't carry more than one of these into the backcountry, I've certainly brought all three car camping and put all of them to use! They're lightweight, strong, and easy to fold. Can't complain at all.

I have always used my pocket rocket for every adventure and needed an upgrade, wanting something more integrated and efficient. Knowing MSR is the way to go, I scooped this stove up and love it! Its boiling efficiency is amazing and I have noticed a big improvement in the amount of fuel being used. My girlfriend and I use this for just about all of our meals and it has plenty of space for the both of us. Can't wait to use this thing even more!

After using a MSR hand pump to filter my water, I decided to give a gravity filter a chance. Needless to say, it has made filtering water much easier and extremely convenient. Although it can be hard to get the dirty bag filled up with smaller water sources, a scoop of some sort has fixed that problem. I also love how I can removed the clean hose from the filter and use it to fill whatever I need, whenever I need it.

My girlfriend has these and she says: These Keen Durand Mid WP Hiking Boots have been put to the test! I purchased them for the hike to Havasupai and am continually impressed by their durability. My ankles have always been weak so I knew I needed a solid underfoot and ankle support for multi day backpacking trip. I consider these boots to be heavy for my size but I was willing to sacrifice the weight for the stability and control. The waterproof membrane has kept my feet try walking through puddles and the sole still has grip for slick rock conditions.

My girlfriend has these and she says: With the amount of snow Utah has gotten this year, I was very grateful to have these Patagonia Powder Bowl Pants and have been impressed by their durability and functionality throughout the season. They pair and integrate well with the Powder Bowl Jacket with a snap on the back and powder skirt to keep the snow out. The outside leg vents are great to keep airflow moving through but I do wish they also inner thigh for cross ventilation.

This Patagonia Capilene Midweight Zip-Neck Top is everything I needed for a base layer from the thumb loops that don’t feel constricting to the ¼ zipper that dips lower than usual to allow for better airflow. I was also surprised and impressed at how well it wicks sweat without smelling terrible after multiple uses. I will usually wear this base layer paired with a down vest for cross country skiing, hiking, downhill snowboarding or any outdoor activity since it is comfortable and stylish. It’s not skin tight and runs on the boxier side for Patagonia but I wouldn’t want to sacrifice the comfort or ability to move. I want to get the thermal layer now for even colder days!
