Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 150 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

Great fit, great fabric, light with stretch. Belly-button-high, mid-bib-style.

BUT, the cuff is too small for my Scarpa T1 boot. I can wrestle with and stretch the fabric to go over with bare hands, but this just won't work in the cold of the backcountry. I wish I could make this work!

They'd be a great pant for pure alpine missions where the boots are less stout.

Well worth the investment. (120L)

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used this bag for 5 years now, including an overland journey from the tip of South America back north to the states and it still looks and feels brand new. It was strapped to the roof for hundreds of miles and the bugs just washed off. I use it for on-continent trips, throwing my fully loaded backpacking bag (70L) inside before checking it onto a flight. Plenty of space left for extra shoes and a daypack. I never have to worry about busted buckles or torn straps.

The fabric is abrasion and water proof and washes quickly with water and soap. The shoulder straps on the duffel are comfortable, even though the bag has to ride a little low on your back. The internal pockets are simple and large enough to handle what I've needed to segregate.
