Yup!

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

I was a little nervous at picking up these spare tire racks. We have an old van, and were concerned that the mounting plate wouldn't have the proper hole configuration. I'd much rather have something that bolted on, rather than wrapped around the tire then secured by hooks.

Turns out the mounting plate has tons of holes, and can be rotated so a good fit is fairly likely. The two of us got it all set up in a few minutes and it looks/works great!
This rack also locks your spare tire to your car, which is a nice bonus

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've never worn a medium in Patagonia until this jacket. The arm length was perfect as was the fit around the waist, but I do have bigger pecs and lats from climbing, so I'm unable to hold both of my arms straight without the jacket restricting movement.
Sizing up fixed the chest issue but now I the sleeves are slightly longer than I'd wish.

As far as performance goes, these are the bee's knees. Small enough to clip onto a harness which makes these super useful for windy summits. The DWR coating will repel a bit of precipitation too which is great if get caught in some afternoon showers in the high country.

The Ande's Blue color is super slick looking and accurate to the picture shown in the description. For the price, these are the best wind shells you can get- under 5oz, full zip, hooded, and DWR coating. Don't miss out on the best emergency shell out there!
