I love Mammut products, and this is a great looking shirt. It fits accurately and feels very comfortable. The large on the graphic gets a bit sticky on humid days (east coaster here), but no complaints otherwise.

Weathered Iceland Well
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Right off the bat we were able to field test this tent in the rainy fall weather of southern Iceland. It fared brilliantly against the rain and wind, with no issue.

The vestibules are large enough for good-sized packs, the removable gear loft is an added bonus, and the overall size is very comfortable.

The packed tent is quite large and heavy, but nothing unreasonable for an all-season tent. It's unfortunate the footprint is sold separately, but also not out of the ordinary.

We were pleased and will certainly take it on any trips where weather might be an issue!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used these on many peaks over the past few months, and they've been great. I adapted one to take a compass knob on top and one to take a GoPro mount. They're not the lightest in the world, but for the money and functionality, they're great.

I adjust them to one height for uphill and another for downhill, and they work perfectly. They have to be locked pretty tight not to slip, and the rubber stoppers wore through pretty quickly, but other than that, they've been great.

One of each.

We have a Grand Trunk hammock, an ENO hammock, and a handmade hammock from Ecuador. We love them all! The ENO is a great lightweight single hammock, the Grand Trunk is a fantastic double person hammock, and the handmade hammock provides a bit more insulation and softness than the other two. They all fit the bill in different ways, but the quality of both the ENO and the Grand Trunk are superb. They pack small, travel light, and are a breeze to set up. They're a simple and cheap addition to anyone's camping supply, and they make camping a whole lot more enjoyable.

I was somewhat disappointed in the bag - it's too narrow with no lower access points, and no outside zippered pocket. The open side pockets are a little too tight for any bottles, and with their construction, everything falls out too easily. It's a bare bones pack at an awkward size - too big for day hikes, and too small for a multi-day pack. I like the look, and the fact that it's largely made of recycled elements, but it's missing too many of the amenities found in common packs to be a good pack.

I've had this sleeping bag for 4+ years, and it's been great. I've used in 30 degree temps, and it's held up brilliantly. The stuff bag works incredibly well, and the 3/4 zip on the bag itself has been really nice. It's not the lightest bag in the world, but it's light enough for shorter backpacking trips.

Does the Job.
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 180 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I bought these to hopefully prevent blisters while using my hiking shoes, and they have done just that.

I am right on the cusp between medium and large, and decided to go with the medium. That has proven a good choice as well, as even then there is a bit of play in the sock.

It has great breathability, the weight and thickness is perfect, and they even match my shoes! My only trepidation is that the seams show signs of chafing after only a few uses - we'll see how they hold up!

I bought this to be a simply designed, lightweight, breathable shirt with some stretch and flexibility to it, and it is exactly that. I couldn't be happier with the result, and am even considering buying a second in a different color.

I didn't want anything fancy or over the top, but wanted something that had the durability and reliability needed for a long lasting hang board. This has fit the bill perfectly. It's been used regularly, and has held up, keeping my finger strength up when I'm not able to make it to the crag or gym. No complaints!
