I purchased this bag to use in the Merrell Down and Dirty mud run Brick Division where they place 5 bricks totaling 25 lbs in you bag that you carry through the entire 3 mile course through the mud, over walls, through inner tubes,in a water and cargo nets. I picked this one because of the chest and waist straps does added support. It held up like a freakin' trooper and now looks brand new after washing...highly recommend!

I have many shirts, but the BD Stretch Operator is selected more than the average shirt in my closet. The fabric is top-tier. I have had the the Imperial Blue for a while and just ordered it again in Pewter. The cut is slightly athletic, which in a button up shirt is perfect to me.

Nice trim fit. Comfortable material. However, the lack of belt loops limits the usability in the event of weight fluctuations.

Love the shirt. I have 100% merino underwear and one 100% merino shirt. The blend of this shirt (which is partially synthetic) is exactly what I was hoping for. Makes the shirt a bit more durable without losing any of the benefits that Merino has to offer. I wear a size S in every major brand (Gap, Old Navy, Express, etc...), and S fit perfectly!

It's odd that these pants are not offered in standard waist sizes but come instead in small-medium-large etc. I am 5' 10", 175 pounds, pretty average build and usually wear somewhere between a 34 and 36 waist (varies with manufacturer). I prefer a slightly loose but not baggy fit, especially for warm -weather active clothing. Based on BD's size charts I ordered the large. They fit nicely standing up, but when I sat or crouched the legs became skin-tight & a bit uncomfortable. I ordered the XL and tried those -- way too baggy. The belt at the tightest setting was still too loose to hold the pants up. I like BD equipment -- I have a parka, mittens etc. for skiing -- but it seems to me they need to fine-tune their clothing a bit more. I'm returning both pairs of pants.

Great liner that can hold their own by themselves or work great simply as a liner. The touchscreen tips aren't noticeable like other gloves either. Very warm, comfortable, and windproof.

Just what I wanted for downhill skiing...lightweight, minimum depth for riding on the chair, but with enough volume for those extra goggles, gloves, hats, water bottles, etc. I'm not a major pack-horse when skiing but hate having my pockets stuffed with the few extras I sometimes need on swing days. The height and adjustability of this bag fits adults fine (I'm 6', 210#). Glad I bought it.

I own this and the Black Diamond Voyager. The Titan is very bright and is an excellent base camp lantern. I love the collapsing design and two part handle that allows you to hang it from a loop without a carabiner. I actually like the way Voyager reflects light and it's more compact size better. But if you need a really bright lantern that is relatively compact, the Titan is for you!

Would have liked to see a side or front zipper for easier access to the bottom of the bag. Very comfortable!! I took the plastic/metal braced back plate out just for a little more ford n the bag. It pulled right out and is plenty stable without! I think it would get a 9/10 simply because you have to take everything out of the bag to be to the bottom. This bag will hold a lot of gear if packed right. I've found that if you plan out your uses of it contents in a descending fashion, it minimizes unpacking completely!! Main point-buy it!! Great quality!!

Best Mitt/glove combo I have ever owned. If you want to stay warm (mitt) and still have the dexterity of the inner gloves, you've gotta get these. I use them for fly fishing in Montana in winter. Buy 'em...now!

I bought this backpack as I'm taking a trip to Hawaii soon and needed a solid backpack that was medium sized, stylish and would allow my back to breath. I had done a lot of research and found this to be the best fit for me. The backpack is exactly what I thought it would be - just the right size for a daypack and I love the color scheme. I'm also a mountain biker and know this will be the perfect addition to my gear. I would definately recommend this pack!

A stiffer fabric than Arc'teryx Delta AR Glove, TNF Denali, Patagonia Synchilla, etc., but some might prefer this - ? more durable Easy on/off Prominent seams on fingers, rub uncomfortably on wrists Thumb is long

Well made. Thick for a liner. Fingers on the long side. A little tight but stretchy - my fingers get cold and numb when squeezed. If you have this problem, don't buy.

These are pretty nice gloves/mittens. They allow you to quickly flip up and text or email. They are a little thick -- as in better for working on a car than just tooling around.

Santa brought this light as a gift for my son for use in cub scouts; he loves it! it is very bright and compact. the two part ring at the top allows the light to be hung without a carabiner. The lights dimming and lamp/flashlight features allow you to adjust for just the right amount of light. The power notification is also a nice touch. This light does not seem as durable as my Kelty Flashback, but it is brighter and more compact.

I wore this for a run this evening and I love it! Stays in place, lightweight and great illumination. I feel so safe, this has opened up my night running options so I can safely explore new territory!

This light is perfect for my needs. I am using it when I take walks at night or early morning, to protect against cyclists speeding on the narrow dark sidewalks of my neighborhood. I have so far worn it around my arm or bag. The adjustable strap allows multiple uses. It fits around the arm of my bulky winter coat and should work well with warmer weather clothes too. I even see people with these types of lights on their dogs' collars at night to protect them! I bought this item because I wanted a very bright light but did not think that I needed a more expensive model with a lot of fancy features. The Gizmo does not disappoint. The light (both steady and strobe) is very bright and can be seen for quite some distance. I will also wear this cycling. I also wore it strapped around my head, cleaning out my storage locker in the dimly lit basement of my building. Multiple uses. Batteries come with it and are easy to install.

This is a great pack, the front zipper opens to many storage pockets and slots to hold all essentials with easy access, it is comfortable, light weight and holds a lot. I took it on a 7 week trip to Europe and it was a perfect day travel pack. It looks nice as well.

Decent product. The light is sufficient, and the charging setup is good. Only ding here is that there should be a bit more pad on the back of the front light, some bits of it dig into your forehead.

I really like this bag! It isn't red though, it's more of a red/orange/off red, but it's still pretty alright. I'm taking it to Iceland and on hikes around home, because I'm not hardcore enough for the kind of backpacks with a water bladder, this is a perfect just-below-that backpack.

It is a nice backpack, just too small. I did not check the specs careful enough when buying it online and thought that this one would be bigger than the Bbee, while in fact it is even smaller (9L vs 11L). The shoulder straps are narrower too, and the open side pocket would not hold a water bottle secure enough in my opinion. Still, if you want a tiny backpack it might work for you. I realized that for my purposes the Magnum backpack would be one to get (18L).
