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

I don't always write reviews, but wanted to share my experience regarding this product.

I originally purchased this pack to replace my GoRuck GR1 with a more commuter-bike friendly waterproof pack. I bike to work (about 15 miles round-trip) and use a backpack to carry work clothes, MacBook Air, small camera, and my lunch.

After using this pack a couple times, I decided to return it to SAC. For how bulky this pack is, it's way smaller than I expected. Not only did I have difficulty packing what few items I had, when I did managed to fit every thing in, it was super uncomfortable on my back. If you are using this pack to carry a laptop, and maybe a couple books, I think it would be perfect, especially in humid/wet climates! Anything more than that, consider a larger model or different style pack.

Pros:
Very solid construction
Waterproof
Straps are comfortable

Cons:
Smaller than expected
Uncomfortable on your back
Bulky

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I don't normally write reviews, but felt like I had to for this product.

Theses shoes are the shit. I am actually on my second pair. Great on all types of terrain - water, snow, ice, pavement, trail, gravel, city and mountains. Light, soft and grippy. I trained through a Colorado fall/winter/spring (I averaged about 20-30 miles/week) and recently ran the Colorado Marathon with these - zero issues.

As for sizing, I normally wear a 10.5, but sized up to 11.

If you can get these on discount or SAC, it's a solid buy.
