Familiarity: I've used it several times

With the dual action pumping on the NRS Super Pump it takes me about 10-15 minutes to inflate a two man ducky. The pressure gauge seems to be pretty accurate when trying to get the best PSI dialed in for your boat. My only fear is that the hose doesn't feel very durable so that could be an issue down the road

If you want to run more technical whitewater then you definitely need these straps. It gives you much more control of the boat while sitting down and allows you to enter powerful eddy lines with confidence. They are also super easy to adjust and the padding is comfortable on your thighs.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I finally decided to pull the trigger on this Aire kayak after the one in our Backcountry.com gear closet was finally put to rest. This boat can take a serious beating, run class IV no problem and fold up small enough to fit in the trunk of most vehicles. It only takes about 10-15 minutes to inflate with the NRS Super Pump so you can get on the river real quick.

Fit: Runs small

These hiking shoes run a little small, so we bought one size larger than my friend's four year old child's foot, and they fit perfectly, and we could possibly get use out of them next season as well. They are really attractive in color and style, and her daughter really appreciated the pink accents. They seem to very comfortable as she didn't want to take them off, and she went on her first real hike and did not complain about the comfort at all, nor did she have any blisters or marks on her feet when she took them off. There were some tricky spots, wet rocks, and steep terrain on the hike for a child her age, and they seemed to help her grip and climb. She also walked in a lot of mud near the water's edge, and she able to clean them up easily. They are the perfect shoe for first time little hikers!

Fit: Runs small

I gave these as a gift and they have a nice athletic fit to them. Great for snowshoeing, x country skiing and general mountain wear. They seem to run a little small but have excellent stretch and can fit a variety of boots since it has a cuff expansion system on it.

The PW is a really nice insulated resort jacket that will hold it's own in tight trees. The exterior shell fabric is much more durable than other options out there. You won't feel like you have to go out of your way to find a clean line through the glades. There are tons of great pockets on this and like how there's media port through the front chest pocket. The only thing that I don't like about this jacket is that the hood seems hard to get the adjustment dialed in. I think since the hood is removable it detracts from the ease of adjustment.
