This is a pretty standard issue harness. I can't really think of anything to complain about with it, especially for the price, however I don't have any thrilling compliments about it either. It's plenty comfortable, however there are definitely more comfortable options out there as well. The gears loops are spacious and functional. and the harness buckles adjust easily. The harness is reasonably light, but fairly bulky.

Overall there's nothing wrong with this harness, but nothing special about it either. You can't go wrong by choosing it, but there are better options to choose from.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been using this pack for about two months now; I picked up to use as a daily commuting pack for my motorcycle. It's been absolutely awesome! 18L is the perfect size for everyday use, and I love the open roll-top closure. There's a small slot inside the pack to help keep keys or a wallet in place, as well as another top pocket on the outside of the pack. The shoulder straps are very comfortable and ergonomic, and the sternum strap is easily adjustable. I haven't tested the waterproofing on the pack yet, but based on the way it feels I have no doubt that it would hold up to just about anything!

Here's what my girlfriend had to say about these sandals:

I found these sandals to be functional but at this point I am concerned about longevity. The footbed of this sandal is foam which I don't imagine will stand up to my excessive wear as I plan to use them as my daily summer shoe. I'm more accustomed to Teva's rubber soles, similar to that of the Hurricane XLT2, but just couldn't justify the cost and hedged my bets that these will last long enough. I also wouldn't trust these foam beds on anything remotely slippery. Their traction seems to be quite subpar. They are perfect alternative to Chacos for those of us with thick or wide feet. These sandals offer much more freedom of adjustment.

Overall I'd say these are a good "fashion" sandal that can take you on an easy float trip, but if you're looking to ford any major rivers I'd spend the extra bucks on the XLT2.

I agree with the previous review; I've worn a ton of Stoic shirts, and this one is the best of them all. Super comfy, pretty great quality for the price, and the pattern is awesome. Fits true to size for me.

I didn't realize how huge this carabiner was going to be! It's great for munter and clove hitches, or a fast masterpoint on a chain anchor, and works well as an all around 'biner, but its a little on the large end of things to be good as a anchor point 'biner.

This little bowl is great for when you're out and about and need to keep your pooch watered. I've used it for backpacking and camping trips, as well as short hikes and it's perfect. Packs down small, it's lightweight, and it never leaks! I got another one to keep in the car so I always have one on hand!

I bought a pair of these to put into my La Sportiva approach shoes, and they're sooo much better than the stock footbeds! Great arch support, nice heel cup, and plenty of cushioning without losing too much sensitivity with the ground. I'll definitely be getting some more to put into some of my other shoes!

I certainly didn't NEED any more t shirts in my closet, but I'm glad to have these! They look and feel great, and seem to be really well made. Sizing is pretty spot on. I'm normally between a medium and a large; I went with a large in these, and they do feel a little bit big, but I think a medium might be a little too small.

I love these soft bottles as they always pack into a backpack really well since they're nice and pliable, fitting into the nooks and crannies of your pack with ease. In my experience they don't hold up to long term use/abuse though; eventually they always start to leak. I keep buying them though!

I love this jacket, it's super warm and toasty; kept me plenty warm in desert camping trips with temps down to the mid teens. It looks great too, fairly form fitting and slim feeling, but not restrictive at all. The thumbhole gaiter things are really nicely down too. It's not very compressible, but I wouldn't take this backpacking or skiing/mountaineering anyway, more of just a camp jacket.

If you find yourself car-camping frequently, get this chair. Oh my lanta, it is COMFORTABLE. If you've got a significant other you'll love getting close and cozy in this thing while you make s'mores over the campfire; and if you're single chances are pretty good somebody is gonna want to sit down with you, and then it's prime time for showing off those s'more-cooking skills (slow-roasted golden brown > burnt to a crisp).

I like this blanket, I do. It's pretty warm, and pretty too. Packs down to about the size of a 48oz Nalgene bottle, so definitely manageable for a backpacking trip or for saving space on a car-camping trip.

HOWEVER, I have concerns about durability. It seems as though this blanket could tear very easily, and definitely keep it away from the campfire and sparking embers.

I'm not going to take a blanket backpacking, that's just kind of a silly waste of space and weight, and it too likely to get thrashed out in the backcountry (I'm admittedly a little hard on my gear). And for car-camping, I'd much much much rather have a far more attractive and comfortable wool blanket. I find most quality wool blankets to be equally as warm, exponentially more durable, and the weight/volume difference is pretty negligible if you're car-camping. And if taken care of properly, they'll last a lifetime!

I was lucky of enough to test this blanket for Backcountry, and while I think it's a novel concept and fairly cool and modern looking, I would much rather spend my money on a timeless quality wool blanket.

I picked up this shirt originally thinking it would be a funny Friday shirt, but as soon as I put it on I knew I had found something special. Unleash your inner jungle cat with this surprisingly well-made and fierce looking shirt. Fits a little small; I can usually get away with a Medium for most shirts, but with this one I found myself clawing my way out of the schmedium and into a large.

I've been meaning to get some reusable grocery bags for quite a while, and I'm soooo glad I finally did! I got two of these, and it's been so nice not having to deal with plastic bags all the time. I keep at least one in my car all the time, and it's also really convenient for carrying excess stuff from the car to the house for those times when I can't fit everything in my arms and refuse to make a second trip! Pick up a few, you won't regret it!
