Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I basically just store the entirety of my photography gear in this bag now. I have a DSLR with 4 lenses and some other random little bits, charger, cleaners, tripod, etc all in this bag. It easily stores everything and I highly prefer it to be sitting organized in my bag rather than strewn about laying on counters or table somewhere. It's great to just pick it up and go, knowing you have everything.

The bag seems well made, I've only used it a couple times so far. Once camping and once on a 8 mile day hike. It was super comfortable and considering the amount of gear/weight with my back giving me no problems whatsoever I'd say that speaks pretty highly of the bag, for me at least.

I got this for camping out in December near Lone Pine, CA. Didn't want to lug around an air mattress. It got down to 15 - 20 degrees, and I had a 20 degree North Face bag. With these two I slept completely comfortable temperature-wise.

I'm a side sleeper, but I slept comfortably with this pad. I'd wake up with a numb arm after an hour or two and have to switch sides, but that's to be expected with a sleeping pad. If you sleep on your back, you'll be golden.

I replaced a pair of NF hiking boots that cramped my toes with these. I've found them to be completely comfortable. I've also walked through quite a bit of water with them, nothing over 2 - 3", however, but my feet stayed dry in the rain and crossing streams.

The other users complained about size, and apparently the fact that these rain pants had a "rain coat" feel and/or noise to them.

Firstly, I'm 5'9" 160ish lbs, I ordered a Medium and they fit perfect. They're just a little baggy in case I need to wear layers beneath, but they're fine if I'm just in my jams.

Secondly, they absolutely DO have a raincoat noise to them. Probably because they are rain pants.

My gf and I just spent a week in Alaska and it was raining 50/50. I had these guys one for two days straight in Seward, AK. I was completely comfortable and found myself for the first time appreciating rain gear.

I also wore them hiking for a bit, but we did a significant climb and it was only a minor drizzle, so instead of dealing with the heat of rain pants, I just wore my shorts.

I generally camp out of the car on mountain biking trips, so I wanted something that would give me a little more space when I was car camping but also pack up tight for backpacking. This bag fits the bill. I've only used it about 5 or 6 nights in the last 45 days or so, but it's been comfortable and easy to pack up.

Seems well made, but only time will tell, I guess.

All in all, it's just a handy little lantern that's easy to hang in a tent or carry around without being a burden. It's actually so bright we usually kept it on the dim setting most of the time - It's fairly blinding in complete darkness. I don't see myself being disappointed with it, especially for the $30 price.
