Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great little chair! It is incredibly lightweight and packs very small. It is also super quick and easy to set up. I've used it on several camping trips this past summer. The mesh material helped air out my back on super hot days. The chair itself is fairly small and sits pretty low to the ground. I'm not sure how well it would fit someone that is super tall. I think this chair is very comfortable, but I'm also pretty short. The chair is so small that I just leave it in the back of my car in case I'm ever in a situation that I might need a seat.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been needing to replace my old duffel bag for quite some time. After reading all the positive reviews, I bit the bullet and bought one. I've used it several times now and I wish I would have bought it sooner! I was shocked at how much I was able to fit in this bag. The backpack straps made it easy to carry around. The material seems very strong and should hold up for a long time. I can't speak for the DWR finish, but I feel like it should keep things dry.

I wanted to replace the beat up stock grips on my Juliana Furtado but couldn't decide what to get because I have small hands and prefer thinner grips. I have a pair of Troy Lee Designs ODI Grips on another bike and feel that they are pretty uncomfortable because they are too thick for my hands. I was pleased to find out that these grips ended up being about as thin as my stock Juliana ones. The awesome orange color matches my bike perfectly. They are super sticky and have great cushion. I also like the single-sided lock on feature because you have more handlebar to work with. If you want a good thin grip, look no further!

Setting up the chainring was a breeze once I had the correct crank puller. After I installed my new gold oval chainring, I went down and hit the Slaughterpen trails in Northwest Arkansas. I immediately noticed that my pedal stroke felt much smoother. After a couple of techy and steep climbs, I quickly began to notice the subtle increase in traction. In climbs where my rear tire would usually start slipping, I suddenly had more traction and was able to climb through it. Maybe this is just in my head, but I also felt like my legs weren't as fatigued at the end of the day compared to my previous chainring. So basically if you're in the market for a new chainring, I would highly recommend the Absolute Black Oval ring. If you buy one and don't notice a difference, it was only $70!

The pump is pretty slow at filtering water but it gets the job done. I've used it on several backpacking trips and have had no issues with it. The pump easily screws onto a nalgene bottle which makes it much easier to filter. I would recommend cleaning the filter out after several uses. We didn't clean it after several days of use and it slowly stopped filtering water. As soon as we cleaned it, it pumped with no problems.

I've had my cook set for about 4 years and still love it. It's a bit difficult to fine tune the temperature. But I mostly use it to boil water for dehydrated meals or to make tea in the mornings. The frying pan is very small. It's probably large enough to fry an egg...and it definitely makes a better lid than anything else. The pot is perfect for drinks/oatmeal. I've used the stove in Colorado at high elevations (10,000 ft) and low temperatures (20 degrees) and have not experienced any issues. I love how the stove, fuel, and cookset can nest inside each other. Easy to pack and easy to use!

The bread was very simple to cook. I brought it along on a backpacking trip in Colorado and it paired well with some trout that we caught earlier in the night. I was sceptical on how it would taste and turn out but I was absolutely shocked. It's so tasty I would even eat it at home!

I bought this for my husband as a gift and ended up buying a 32 oz bottle for myself. We also have the 18 oz bottles for our morning coffee. These bottles are much heavier than traditional bottles (nalgene) and are not as durable. The bottles should not be put in the dishwasher. My husband did that to his first one and it messed up the liner and it no longer kept beverages cold/hot for very long. They also don't seem to fit in most traditional cup holders. Although they have some minor downfalls, these bottles are AMAZING!

I'll put ice cubes in the bottle in the morning and they are still there the next morning! I've left my bottle out in the car on 90 degree days and I'll still have ice cold water when I open the bottle. I've noticed for warm beverages, it's best to condition the bottle by pouring in a hot liquid for 5-10 minutes prior to putting in your drink of choice. This helps the liner of the bottle get really hot and it will keep you drink warmer for much longer.

I absolutely love Hydroflasks and would recommend them to anyone!

I have the MHM Divide 55 pack and I purchased a size Large. I thought about getting a Medium but I like to tie stuff to the outside of my pack. The Large fits perfectly when my pack is fully packed and I have some gear on the outside. I have yet to need it out on a hike but I'm confident it will keep my gear dry.

I've only worn these shorts a few times but I absolutely love them! My other biking shorts are the Fox brand and they all feel really tight and restrictive on my thighs. If I buy them a bit larger for that issue, they are too large on the waist. These shorts fit perfectly in the waist and thighs. The material is stretchy so it doesn't feel tight while I'm pedaling. The material also breathes well...I've been biking in 90 degree heat and haven't had any issues!
