Familiarity: I've used it several times

This bag is great for car camping. Plenty to room for two and great design with easy access on both sides of the bag. Really comfortable down to about 30 degrees or so. Not sure if it would make it all the way down to 20 degrees without some help, but I can't really confirm because I've never used it below the mid thirties.

Weight of the bag is reasonable at 6 pounds, but might not be compressable enough to take backpacking, unless you've got a fairly large backpack.

All in all, a superb product that's affordable and does what it was designed to do very well.

I've owned this tent for several years and love certain aspects of it. It's great for a lightweight option for mountaineering and does well in four seasons. I seam sealed mine and never had any issues with water accumulating from rain. Condensation has been minimal, as long as you set it up facing into the wind and leave the door slightly cracked to allow air to flow.

I've found that it insulates better than double walled tents and that properly staked and guy lined out it will stand up to some hellacious winds without flinching. The bathtub floor is very durable and also water sealed.

The only real negative I have is that the internal pole setup can be difficult and potentially dangerous to the tent. So follow the manufacturers recommendation and definitely practice setting this tent up a few times before taking it out to the backcountry. Internal pole set up for this tent is not for everyone, so that has to be considered if you're interested in purchasing it.

This jacket has an odd cut... at least for me. I went with a size medium and it fits well in the sleeve length and through the body, but find that the shoulders are exceptionally baggy and could use a trim. So, it gives me a fitted cut through most of the jacket, except in the shoulder and upper back region. I am 5'10" and about 165lbs. This is the only jacket that I won from one of the major outdoor gear manufacturers that has this problem, so I don't think that it's just me, at least not this time! :)

Otherwise, the jacket looks nice, wears well, and is comfortable. Love the wrist cuffs and the pockets are all well placed. A little spendy, and for this kind of money, I would've expected a slightly more consistent fit.
