Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased this bladder as a replacement for a 3 year old bladder that started leaking. The construction of this one has a unique system. The top of the bladder fold over and then a grey slider slips over the top - similar to a zip lock bag. Although I haven't experienced any problems, this system seems like it could wear out rather quickly. The handle that is provided is extremely convenient and has come in handy multiple times. The biggest problem with this bladder is that the water - regardless of the source - tastes like plastic. I have been unable to get rid of this taste. It's a decent product but probably won't be recommending to anyone.

We spent a lot of time researching and reading multiple reviews on water purifiers. We even went to local stores to test and handle the different options and the Guardian Purifier System is super easy to use and won out - hands down.

The red cap on the bottom of the purifier is simple and easy to twist on and off. This will keep the outlet hose clean and prevent it from being contaminated. The hose wraps around the purifier for easy storage and fits well in the carry case. The handle is super easy to pump.

We recently took this on a trip and was able to fill a 2 gallon collapsible water jug in about 10 minutes. So far, I have only used the Guardian in clear water and it works great. When attaching the bladder hose to the bottom of the purifier, my 3L bladder is filled in 1-2 minutes.

The only down side to this product is that the prefilter is supposed to sit under the water. If you don't hold the purifier just right, the prefilter will partially come out of the water or will pop out all the way due to the hose being rigid. Find the right way to hold the purifier to keep the hose straight and the prefilter in the water and this will flow quickly and efficiently. Overall, a fantastic purchase and super lightweight. Great buy!

Fit: Runs small

I purchased these pants after splitting one of my favorite pairs while at work. I read the sizing charts and purchased a size 8 and size 10. Despite the sizing chart, and purchasing both sizes, I was extremely disappointed that neither pair fit. Even after adjusting the waist strap, these did not fit well around my waist. Seemed like a good pant but seems to run small.

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

I purchased 2 of these packs for first time backpackers. Osprey offers so many options for adjustments on these packs that they really can and do fit everyone The AG frame allows for breath ability and is very comfortable to wear. The first time out, these packs hiked Mt. Nebo and although part of the trail is in direct sunlight, both people were able to take their packs off and put htem back on without that back 'freeze' from sweat stains. These packs are able to hold at least 25lbs of gear with plenty of room. The hip belt did leave bruises on one user with a very small frame. After molding the hip belt specifically to her, no further bruising occurred. This pack was the perfect purchase for first time backpackers and will most likely be their go too for packs in the future.

I have only had these shoes for a few days and have initial impressions. The shoes provide a very cushioned insole. With each step, you can feel the comfort and softness of the insole. I do have a concern that the gel may wear pretty quick as I can feel my heel sink with each strike. The tongue of the shoe is actually a fleece/soft fabric that hugs the top of the foot quite well. The toe box feels a little tighter than other Asics shoes but not enough to cause pain or discomfort. The colors are pretty great and bright. The tread seems pretty durable and strong. Overall, I'm impressed so far by the shoe. We'll see how it holds up on a 5 day backpacking trip.

I purchased these for my boyfriend. He says they hug the foot well and feel great on his feet. The speed lacing holds up well during his construction working days of 12+ hours. The only reason for 4 stars is because these are waterproof and not as breathable as needed. This aside, the shoes are durable and have a lot of support for long activities. After long work days and hiking for 5 miles, his feet feel great and these shoes limit the tiredness he feels. Overall, a great purchase for very active people.

I purchased these mostly for hiking. They are a little thicker than what I expected but found these extremely comfortable. My feet do get a little hot while hiking but not enough to be overly concerned. These socks provide cushion around the heel and toe pads and I have found this feature most enjoyable while hiking up steep terrain. Despite being a little thicker than expected, these are super comfortable and breath quite well. I would recommend for hiking.

I purchased these for hiking in Utah. They are super light and surprisingly comfortable. I was a little concerned about blisters and comfort but was surprised when these showed no signs of trouble. They did shrink a little on me after I dried them a few times but do stretch back out. Great comfortable socks for hikes and hot weather. Fantastic buy!

I purchased these for a more breathable sock during hikes around Utah. These are very light weight socks and are very comfortable. I have had these for about 3 months and have already wore a hole in the heel. I'm a little disappointed these haven't lasted longer but overall a great purchase.

I purchased this as a gift for my boyfriend and he loves it. The shirt is super lightweight and comfortable. It's a great shirt for hiking and working out. It breaths well and dries pretty quickly. The material is super soft and comfortable. Great purchase.

I bought this tank for hikes and outdoor fun. The tank is a little snug through the breast area so I would recommend sizing up if you have a larger bust. Otherwise, the tank is lightweight and breathable. Very comfortable. Great for outdoor activities.

I purchase these for my boyfriend as he loved his first pair. The red pair fit him like a glove and he loves the 'pocket' that cradles him oh so gently! The matchstick pair fits a little strange and rides up quite a bit. The sizing is the same on both pairs but the matchstick variant is not as comfortable as the red pair. Overall, he loves how the material is flexible and moves with him. This has eliminated quite a bit of 'swass' and always picks Saxx as his first choice. If you are an active guy, these are the perfect underwear for you!!

I love the weight of the fabric. This was purchased for my boyfriend who spends 12 hours outside in Park City, UT temperatures. He loves the ability to layer this, when needed, without bunching under his coat. He says the moisture is wicked away from his skin when he's working and he rarely gets cold. Great investment.

I purchased this for my sister as her dog ate her old Walmart hydro pack. I ultimately purchased this one for all the features and color. I was looking forward to the adjustable shoulder and sternum straps as well as the ability to strap in a helmet. Unfortunately, the S/M was way too small for my sister and I had to return. I love Osprey packs and will be shopping around for another for her needs.

Seriously, this is thing is absolutely amazing. These will keep drinks cold for hours. We had a beer sitting in these for about and hour and the beer was as cold as when it was pulled out of the cooler. My entire family is now in the market for these for camping in the summer!!

This was purchased to house two adults and two large dogs. There is quite a bit of head room and space. The floor space appears to be adequate for job of housing so much. I do wish the tent had a vestibule but really the tent appears to be fantastic. Since it's winter, we haven't used it yet. I'll update once spring rolls around and we actually use the tent.

I purchased this for my father who spends quite a bit time outside. It's pretty thin fabric and allows breath ability. Since my father gets so cold, he has to layer this. However, he says he loves the fit and feel. He really enjoys how it looks as wells.

This is my second pair of the Halle Lined pants. These are great for cold days or out on a trail in cooler temperatures. The lining is very comfortable and allows movement when hiking or climbing over obstacles. The waist has drawstrings to tighten the pants, if needed as well as a button to fasten. When attempting to put these on with socks, my foot gets caught in the lining and I have to stick my arm in the pant leg to find the other end but without socks - no problems. These pants are great fit all the way around and have been a wonderful investment.

I purchased this for my sister and ultimately decided that it was too small and purchased the 30oz instead. However, this size would be perfect for the on-the-go mornings or to have for coffee on your way to work. The size was great and easily fit in cup holder.

I purchased this for my sister who loves coffee all year round. She frequently complains of coffee getting cold so I purchased this for her to try. Her coffee stays hot all morning long. Despite being the 30oz, it still fits well in cup holders and the cup does not condensate or leave rings. Her previous mug was top heavy so any time she would turn the corner she'd have to hold on to the cup. The Yeti Rambler does not need to be held. Overall, a great purchase that keeps drinks hot all day!
