Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

These are by far the most comfortable pants I've worn in a long time. They are super stretchy, yet look sharp. Look great with a ratty t-shirt or a nice collared shirt. Water rolls off of them, yet they are somehow a little breathable in the heat. I'm talking sweaty, humid, high temps, the pants don't seem stifling, which is a surprise. Only small negative is that the integrated belt-thing has a tail that hangs down. I just tuck over the waist band. Though nice to have an integrated cinch strap (not really a belt), and you can't see it if you wear them with an actual belt, so a small inconvenience for a great feature. All in all, highly recommended.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Got this bag from Backcountry many years ago. My original review has somehow disappeared. Anyhow, as a roll-on piece of luggage that fits in large overhead bins, it works great. Worn as a backpack it's not so great. The wheels will jab you in the hips, so as to make it unbearable after a while. I completely removed the straps and just use it as a roller bag. The pocket in the back that contained the straps is a lot of space. Wasted space if you just have the straps in their. I stuff a jacket, dirty laundry or recyclable items in there, which works fine. The zip off pack is a bit odd, in that it's basically one big compartment. Would be better with some divided compartments. Otherwise, no issues. All around a decent, well made bag for airline travel in developed countries.

Was initially excited to get this bag. It looked cool and functional, however in practice it doesn't live up to expectations. It has a ton of lost space from the handle bar rails and the backpack straps. Also, the wheels will poke you in the hips if you wear it like a backpack to the point that if you have to go further than a few hundred yards you will regret it. I completely removed the back pack straps and now stuff items in that space. Lastly, the zip off pack is weird. It has one large compartment that needs to be divided up to keep your small stuff organized better. It works okay, but i was expecting better from Osprey.
