Familiarity: I've used it several times

My dog got skunked and needed a new collar., and this little puppy did not disappoint. There is nothing about this collar that stinks! The tags are super quiet (I thought my dog might actually catch a bird the other day!), it looks great, and the clasp is easy on/easy off. Also, the metal tab where you attach the leash looks odd, but it actually slides out of carabiners (even the ones with a hooked nose) real easily. Buy it, you'll love it!

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I want to love this boot, and I DO! Unfortunately, this one didn't even make it out the door as I found their scary weakness in the store! First- I'll say I think this boot has it all, and is the only other boot that compares to Dynafit's Hoji Px or Hoji Pro. It's amazingly comfortable, looks great, the liner is arguably the best liner I have ever seen, almost as easy as the old rear entry boots to take on/off, the walk/tour mode is stupidly simple (but now I realize also the problem). I really do love this boot, and I was literally about to reach for my credit card that's how highly I think of them, and then it happened. I want to try them on snow, but with what happened, I cannot risk skiing them. In the store, not even clipped into a ski (one can generate MORE forward pressure while clipped into a ski than when not clipped into a ski) I was able to get them to buckle from Ski Mode into Tour Mode simply by giving strong forward pressure. (yes, they were fully buckled as if I was skiing) This is just scary, and where I would be using these boots makes this problem a life threatening situation. Sorry Scott: I love this boot and I REALLY want to buy it, but this cannot fly. :(

I use these gloves primarily for back country skiing, and they are simply the best gloves I have ever had. Yesterday, I completely forgot they were on while I was rummaging around in my bag, and pockets. If it's a bit cooler than standard, pop the internal mitten covers on over your fingers and keep on going! They work moderately ok with touch screens on a phone, weigh next to nothing, and pack small. I liked them so much, I bought a second pair for a friend, and I am considering another pair for myself as I intend on bringing them along for cooler summer hikes, and so much more! I have no idea how I have lived without them as they are just so versatile. You want these gloves, yesterday!

Well built sweater that keeps my dog very warm! It doesn't fit nearly as well as other jackets/sweaters however. My dog is stout (Boxer/Pitty mix; 32" girth, 17"-18" neck, 22-23" length, 60 pounds) and even the medium hangs off her butt a solid 3". The small just looked ridiculous, like she was a body builder wearing a shirt 5 sizes too small. The sizing chart on this is simply wrong; It either puts her into a Small, or a Large, depending on which numbers used, but NON of the numbers put her into a medium. ???? The large hung off her butt by almost a foot - she could hardly walk. It fits so so: My biggest gripe about this sweater. The Cloud Chaser jacket fits her body style (not a long skinny tube of a dog) better than this sweater. Otherwise, this is a great sweater; just sizes VERY different from other dog sweaters/jackets that I have owned.

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

I bought this for a friend who likes to take hot tea while ski touring, in addition to water. He has always played games with hiding a bottle inside a backup set of gloves, or the like, in order to keep the tea hot enough. That will never again be a problem with this hydro flask! Mine keeps hot coffee too hot for hours; I usually have to add a handful of ice into the bottle or it simply will not cool down! We look forward to having piping hot tea on top of a snowy mountain soon!

I cannot praise this bottle enough! I use mine at work, in the warehouse, so I use it all day, every day, and I have for over 6 months now! I left a handful of ice in the bottom of it, and after my 3 day weekend, the ice was still ice! If I put coffee that is too hot to drink into it, then it is still too hot to drink 4 hours later! This wonderful bottle also holds a fair amount of liquid (25 oz- slightly less than a Nalgene's 32 oz) and the mouth is perfect for chugging, or sipping without splashing all over yourself.

I had purchased 2 of these, one for me and one for a friend. I was thinking it would be great as a tea cup in the backcountry, but it's too flimsy for that. It's better used as a bottle protector. I personally do not see why one of these would be needed to keep the bottle from sliding around as all the hydroflasks I have ever seen already have slip proof material on the bottom. I'll keep mine and find a good use for it, (maybe as a jar opener?) but it wasn't really what I was hoping for.

Great cap! It lets in plenty of air so it doesn't feel like you're trying to drink through a cocktail straw. The only issue I had was that if I did not press the lid fully closed, then it would leak, and the margin of error is pretty small. Otherwise, it is a great cap, and very ergonomic to use as a carrying handle.

I prefer being attached to the bike, and the circular motion around the BB with clip ins are INFINITELY more efficient than flat pedals. That's my preference, and while I do not have a preference on cleats, these suited my needs, are solid, and continue to work for years! No brainer

This cooler is enormous! I bought it as my contribution to our group's river gear, and now we only need one cooler! The best part about it is that it stays cold for multiple days, not just a few hours like all previous coolers I have owned.

The first pair of these shoes have lasted me 2 years; 2 years of installing solar on hot asphalt roofs, and serious hikes throughout Utah! The traction is phenomenal, whether you are on the edge of a 3 story roof, backpacking in the Uintas (I personally have gotten away from high top boots), or used as an approach shoe to climb the West Slabs of Olympus. Lightweight, breathable, durable, one of the best all around shoes out there.
