I was quite pleased with the overall weight and size, as well as the way it self packed easily into the incorporated pouch. When I tried to set it up in rain though, the 8 attachment points proved difficult to keep taut, and the incorporated tensioning straps kept slipping when they got wet. I much prefer my simpler, reliable hex tarp.

I have an older Granite gear bag that I love. these 20 Liter bags are just the right size for a few days of clothes. they are very light and they pack up into a teeny little bag for storage. each of the kids has one and its perfect for sharing a suitcase with them, or just keeping clothes for each person all together when camping. love them1

Fits well in any canoe--either laying flat on the bottom of the boat (great for a third person to sit on) or upright with another pack. Buckles are durable straps are easy to cinch, and top closure is simple and reliable. On portages, the top flap makes the bag easy to hoist, and the straps and waist belt are comfortable. This isn't the Cadillac bag in Granite Gear's portage pack line, but for the price, utility, and durability, this is the way to go. I've taken Granite Gear packs to the Boundary Waters for a decade and my oldest packs will last for decades more.

I've purchased these mittens in 2 different sizes and they are spectacular. You can put These on, tighten up the straps and dive into the deepest powder and you'll never get any snow inside your sleeve or into the mitten. These mittens have 2 removable inner fleece mittens that are soft, comfortable and will keep your hands warm in the coldest conditions. I miss the snot rag they put on their older style mitts.
