Familiarity: I've used it several times

We have bigger car camping tents and smaller backpacking tents but we wanted something a little less expensive for last minute adventures that would hopefully hold up to a dog as well as keep us warm in the Vermont shoulder season. Well, this did all of that and then some. We were very impressed. The three person is a snug fit for two average adults and a 70 lb dog. But it kept us warm with no condensation and plenty of ventilation in the early November, 20-ish degrees Vermont camping. We woke up to a thick layer of frost on everything outside and felt none of it. Super easy and quick setup. The vestibules are huge so it does take a fair bit of space but we are really happy with the quality at such a great price. Alps comes thru again!

This blanket is very nice. We have the 4P and 2P. We use them as tent rugs to add some extra protection and warmth to the tent. It works great for that use and I would imagine it works well as a beach or ground blanket. The bottom of the rug has a nice bit of cushion which softens roots and gravel, etc and the top is soft and can also take a spill. I spilled water and it cleaned up and dried quickly. It’s very light but the 4P is a little bulky. The 2P obviously packs down a little smaller. However, there was no mention of only being able to spot clean the CAMPING BLANKET. I will probably wash them anyway and hope for the best. I don’t see how you can sell a camp blanket, or any ground cover, and expect it to not get dirty! That’s ridiculous. I’m taking a star off for that reason. I’m a little disappointed in Nemo for 1) making a camping product you can’t clean and 2) not mentioning that fact in the description.

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

It’s comfortable and definitely a glamping bonus to chill in front of a fire. However, compared to other camp chairs, it’s heavy and unwieldy. The footprint is much bigger than I’d hoped. It didn’t swing as much as I hoped either. And as a tall-ish woman (5’7”), but short-waisted, I felt a little cocooned in it trying to talk to the person next to me. I wanted to love it; I really did. It’s worthy of love. Just not from me.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This table seems a little silly but in reality is a bad ass. I have one with my camp/hike gear and another I keep in my car with a chair. It’s been used for camp cooking, a nightstand in the tent, side table at the beach and cookouts. It wears many hats. Easy to setup and take down, built like a champ. Packs down light and small in its own bag and even has a grab handle/strap. Love!

This is my second pair of WM1s, Asian Fit. I’m not Asian, but have a low nose bridge and high/wide cheekbones that made the regular WM1s have a big gap at the nose that I can see thru,, but these work PERFECTLY. No fogging, crystal clear, fits perfectly with my Anon helmets, the face mask doesn’t smother me and is easy to get on/off, and I love swapping out lenses for changing conditions in 30 seconds. And the lenses DO NOT pop out. I’ve landed directly on my face, among the many poses when falling, and they take a beating and don’t budge. Would def. recommend.

Saved my backside, literally! They fit snugly and are a bit of a hassle to get on, but they do what they're supposed to do. After slipping 3 disks in my low back, snowboarding this year without protection wasn't an option. My only real complaint is that the padding under the sit bones needs to be wider like on the men's version. I also like that the padding is removable so that you can take out what you don't need and can wash the shorts. Well worth the money.
