Fit: True to size

Incredibly lightweight. Very comfortable. Fit was very true to size for other Vans I own and have worn in the past. I was nervous that the upper material might be too light and not very durable but that wasn't the case at all. I probably wouldn't wear these with light socks in the winter but this is a perfect shoe for most activities during most of the year.

I believe all Peak Designs products that work with these anchors come with at least enough to use. And as much as I've used mine, I have yet to need to replace them.
As already mentioned in other reviews, this is the most brilliant method for attaching a camera strap to a camera. What's better is that it disconnects easily (not accidentally) as well so I can change from neck strap to wrist strap without much thought.
These attach to your camera at the same points you'd attach any other camera strap. They just alleviate a lot of headaches.

I absolutely love this strap. It connects with the Peak Design Micro Anchors (included) which also makes it super easy when I want to disconnect the slide lite and attach the leash (wrist strap).
I travel with a mirrorless camera and this strap is comfortable enough to walk around with the camera hanging from my neck all day without much discomfort.
It's just an added bonus that it looks as good as it does.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have yet to wear this backpack out without getting compliments. I've had this backpack as long as anyone (Kickstarter Early Bird) and it's still holding up to everything I've managed to throw at it so far. The 20L is just the right size for holding a jacket, my camera equipment (including a mirrorless camera and two lenses, extra batteries, extra memory cards, etc), as well as all the everyday necessities. I can even manage to put my macbook and cables in the backpack with the rest of this without it feeling to crammed.
The quality of these backpacks (just like anything else from Peak Design) is incredible.
A few times I've wished I'd gone for the 30L but more often than not the 20L is plenty sufficient. Plus it counts as a personal item on an airplane.

I bought this jacket for a trip to San Francisco and it was exactly what I was hoping for. I just needed something to cut the wind. I spent most of the weekend walking around in a crewneck sweatshirt and when the wind picked up or the sun went down, I added the Raven jacket to keep me warm.
The fit is definitely bigger than you get from most brands. I am a 41 slim jacket size and the Medium works well for me in the Raven jacket. Still looks a little big on me when I'm wearing it without another layering piece but the drawcord in the waist and the snaps on the sleeves reduce some of that.
The quality is definitely there. I didn't see any unfinished stitches and the look is clean.
Haven't tried the hood yet. I'm sure it's sufficient.
This was a must have for a windy weekend and rolled up nicely to fit in my Peak Designs Everyday Backpack while I was walking around the city.

I absolutely love this pullover. I have multiple different colors and may pick up another. So comfortable. Warm, but not too hot. It's the perfect piece for almost every situation.
Medium hits at my waist and isn't too boxy.
Patagonia used to only make this in Women's and I was stoked when they finally made it for Men.

Was very impressed at the flattering fit of this jacket at the $200 price point. Seems most jackets in this price range are a little boxy and not very technical. I think in this price range this is one of the more impressive down jackets you can pick up.

I think this jacket is incredible. I bought this for a gift, but I'd love to have one of my own. The stretch makes this one of the most comfortable jackets I've every seen. Think lightweight softshell with the warmth of down.

My sister needed something to keep her warmer walking around Campus during the colder months. She has a Patagonia Nano Puff that she wears most days but this was perfect for one step warmer. She loves that it goes to her knees for that little bit of added warmth.
Sizing was as she expected.

Fit: True to size
Size Purchased: 11

My brother will only wear all black shoes. He also wears shoes until they're practically falling off his feet. When OluKai quit making the Ohana Lace-Up in all black I knew we were in trouble. I'm pretty sure I found him the last pair in his size in the country and bought it for him. But eventually he was on his last pair and they were to that point of falling off his feet.
I bought him these for Christmas and he actually liked them. They were casual enough that he wears them everyday but just dressed up enough he's comfortable in them at work, school wherever.
Great shoe and classic Timberland construction.

I never have very high expectations of a T-Shirt. But I'm a big fan of Penfield so I had to pick up this shirt. It's become one of my favorites right out of the gate. I love that the fit is slightly longer than I expected and is still trim. The cotton is very soft and comfortable and hasn't become less so after washing.
