Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been endlessly impressed with my Strumprinz jacket. Full disclosure; I live in a relatively dry part of the world (Salt Lake City), but I've taken this out on a couple of winter road excursions with wet roads, and I was blown away. I can only imagine how well it would perform in a true downpour. You're not going to find another jacket that will truly keep you completely dry, and breathe this well. From the taped seems, to the fitted cuffs, to the perfect cut, I honestly can't formulate any criticism.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Unless you're going to go tubeless, (and you probably should), you won't do better than the GP4000. I've observed that these last longer than almost any other race tire, and I haven't ever had a sidewall failure. I'll have to ride the new 5000 at some point, but the fact that you can pick these up for less than $35 makes them pretty tempting!

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

I bought these as a gift for a family member. He absolute loves them! He says he wore them on a ski day that started at -5 and got up to 9 degrees. They stayed warm from 9-4, all day! He loves the free first finger so he can easily buckle and unbuckle his snowboard bindings.

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

I bought this bag as a gift for a family member. She says it is the perfect bag for anything! It is very large and has a small, handy, inside pocket. She loves the two sizes of handles when the bag is either full or more empty. It is made of sturdy fabric with a fun pattern.

I bought these as a gift for a family member. She says they are excellent socks for hiking, cross country skiing, or wearing in a winter book. She loves the way they have padding where it needs to be and they don't wear down after long days in the boots. She loves the color too. Great sock!
